James Mangold

James Mangold did the impossible when tackling Marvel movie 'Logan', bringing home an Oscar nomination for the film that would serve as Hugh Jackman's last hoorah as the mutant with the adamantium skeleton and claws. Now, the filmmaker is ready to move on to a different universe altogether, if one new report is to be believed.

There have been rumours floating around for a while that Lucasfilm would be expanding upon their 'Star Wars' universe in a number of different ways. This week has seen the release of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story', fleshing out the history of fan-favourite Han Solo. That's something that's also been discussed for other characters, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett. Whilst Kenobi's flick is still very much a possibility, it's Fett's story that seems to be moving along at a faster pace.

James Mangold

The rise of post-credits scenes is without a doubt to do with the incredible success of movies based on comic books and superheroes. Fans are consistent now in waiting past the credits when they go to the cinema to see the latest instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or the DC Extended Universe, hoping that they'll get a glimpse of the future, despite just watching a couple of hours of the present.

Making post-credits scene a trend, superhero films may have actually now shot themselves in the foot. If they don't deliver a scene, some fans feel as if they've been cheated out of a look at what's to come. There's now an insistance on filmmakers to not only deliver in their main film, but to set the stage for future instalments of their respective movie universes.

Disney are without a doubt one of the biggest companies in the world of entertainment, and the titans behind-the-scenes are looking to expand on that even more if recent reports are to be believed. In talks with 21st Century Fox, who are considering selling their film and television divisions, there's apparently a deal on the table worth around $60 billion, and an official announcement looks set to arrive this week.

If the deal does indeed go through, Fox's channels such as A&E and Star TV would be sold on, along with stakes in Hulu, Sky and properties including 'The Simpsons' and the original 'Star Wars' trilogy. For comic book movie fans, it means that their beloved 'X-Men' and 'Fantastic Four' will have their rights taken back by Marvel Studios, leading to an uncertain future for the franchises.

'The Wolverine' Dominates Box-Office: But Did You Stay For The Easter Egg?


Hugh Jackman James Mangold X-Men

So James Mangold's The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, wasn't really that bad in the end. There was brief couple of days when Rotten Tomatoes was filling up with a flurry of bad reviews for the X-Men movie, though the heavyweight critics gave Jackman and company the benefit of the doubt.

WolverineHugh Jackman as The Wolverine

During its opening weekend at the box-office, the movie took a modest $55 million (despite estimates of $80 million) though pulled in $86.1 million internationally to comfortably recoup its budget. In other words, from now on everything that The Wolverine pulls in at the cinema and on DVD and BluRay is pure profit. In other, other, words - it's all been a rather big success.

The superhero picture set in Japan opened bigger than any previous X-Men movie abroad, making $86.1 million internationally to add to a modest $55 million domestically. The 20th Century Fox project certainly cannot be considered a flop in the U.S - it still earned the No.1 spot - though it made $10 million less than expected.

The Wolverine - TV Spot


Logan is the mutant Wolverine who, along with a skeleton of adamantium, retractable claws and heightened senses, possesses a healing power that renders him ageless and immortal. To most, this would be a gift, but to Logan it is the biggest curse he could possibly suffer following the death of his beloved Jean Grey and his isolation from other mutants. He is visited by Mariko Yashida who takes him to Japan where her employer insists on repaying him for saving his life many years ago. Logan is offered the chance to surrender his life-saving powers in order for him to live out his life and take comfort in its natural end but, when it comes down to it, it may not have the consequences he hoped for as he is once again deceived and forced to fight to defend the name of the X-Men. Only this time, his chances are running out.

Carrying on from events in 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand', 'The Wolverine' returns in a more intense and testing story than ever before. It is the sequel to the 'X-Men' film series based on the Marvel comic books by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller and has been directed by James Mangold ('Girl, Interrupted', 'Walk the Line', 'Cop Land') who also co-wrote the screenplay with Mark Bomback ('Total Recall', 'Die Hard 4.0'), Scott Frank ('Minority Report', 'Marley & Me') and Christopher McQuarrie ('The Usual Suspects', 'The Tourist'). It will come to UK cinemas everywhere on July 15th 2013.

Hugh Jackman says he is cutting back on the amount of movie stunts he performs himself after a nasty accident on the set of his upcoming summer blockbuster The Wolverine.

The Australian actor who earned an Oscar nomination for Les Miserables feared he had broken his neck during a scene in which his character swings out of a train carriage. Though his injuries weren’t severe, it was enough to concern wife Deborra-lee Furness who made him reassess the amount of dangerous work he performs himself.

“In the film, there's a scene where I swing from inside to outside a train and my neck got caught. I thought I had broken it.
