Rose McGowan X-Men Jennifer Lawrence

Former ‘Charmed’ actress Rose McGowan has voiced her concerns over a billboard promoting movie X-Men: Apocalypse which shows Jennifer Lawrence’s character Mystique in a chokehold. The image has already sparked outrage on social media and in New York one poster was covered in sticky notes which read: "This violence in my kid's face is not OK.”

Rose McGowanRose McGowan has criticised the X-Men: Apocalypse movie poster.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, McGowan said: "There is a major problem when the men and women at 20th Century Fox think casual violence against women is the way to market a film. There is no context in the ad, just a woman getting strangled.”

X-Men: Apocalypse Casts Three New Faces


X-Men Sophie Turner Tye Sheridan Game Of Thrones Alexandra Shipp

Some breaking superhero movie news: director Bryan Singer has unveiled casting details for three characters in his forthcoming project X-Men: Apocalypse. Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp will all play younger versions of three of the mythology’s most popular characters.

Singer, who is already attached for the eighth instalment in the popular movie franchise, tweeted the casting announcements on Thursday. The biggest news is the inclusion of Turner, famous for her portrayal of the tormented Sansa Stark on ‘Game Of Thrones’, who will be playing a younger version of the ultra-telepathic Jean Grey. That makes her the second ‘Game of Thrones’ star to also feature in the franchise – Peter Dinklage played the baddie in last year’s Days of Future Past.

Who Is 'Doctor Strange' Director Scott Derrickson?


Scott Derrickson The Avengers X-Men

As the Marvel juggernaut continues to speed ahead, dispensing a huge array of films and series featuring multifarious characters and an increasing selection of superhuman protagonists, it is no surprise that the comic book giant has announced that Doctor Strange will make his cinema debut in a recently announced eponymous film. The Doctor’s role in the comic books is that of the Sorcerer Supreme- Earth’s protector against threats that are magical and fantastical rather than the orchestrated destruction of standard comic book villains. He has already been the subject of a low budget direct-to-TV film as well as a TV series, but with Marvel Studios financing the project we can be sure that Doctor Strange will be a superhero movie of epic proportions- a visual spectacle certain to be a feast of CGI. However, other facts hint that the film will take on a darker turn than the likes of The Avengers or Iron Man.

Derrickson At Sinister ScreeningDerrickson has made a name for himself as a horror director able to work on small budgets.

But who will take the helm as director of such an imposing project? That accolade has been bestowed upon Scott Derrickson, who will reportedly work alongside producer Kevin Feige- the man responsible for the production of many of Marvel’s blockbuster leviathans, including each of the X-Men, Iron Man and Avengers instalments. Derrickson has been slowly making a name for himself throughout Hollywood as a much respected horror director and his film The Exorcism Of Emily Rose grossed $144 million at the box-office, a hugely respectable figure for a low-budget horror pic.

The two wisest mutants of the universe, Charles Xavier and Magneto, have been at odds for a great many years, but they must this time unite to have any hope of saving their people. They contact Wolverine to help them on their mission to go back in time and convince their younger selves that trouble lies ahead if they don't make the right decisions; Wolverine is the only one who can take on such a task with his healing powers giving him enough strength, but can he possibly save the future?

Ellen Page Julianne Moore X-Men

As the editing process get into full swing, the first casualty in the mutant army happens to be Anna Paquin's Rogue character, who is having a hefty portion of her screen time cut from the final film reel. A rescue scene supposed take place near the beginning of the film, one involving Rogue, Magneto (Ian McKellen), Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), has been taken out of the final cut for the film, with Singer explaining to Entertainment Weekly that the decision to scrap the sequence shouldn't harm the final cut of the movie, although it does mean Rogue will play a much lighter role in Days of Future Past.

'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 X-Men panel certainly had the most impressive cast turnout. Actors from across the X-Men films appeared to promote X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is due to be released in 2014. Ian McKellan flirted with the younger reincarnation of his character Magneto, Michael Fassbender, commenting on Proposition 8, he said "It's great to be back in California, I feel safe here now." He continued by announcing "I'm looking for a husband", cheekily adding "it's great to meet you Michael".

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.

The Wolverine - Teaser Trailer


Logan's mutant ability to survive almost anything is beginning to take its toll. After alienating himself from his X-Men peers and being forced to kill the love of his life Jean Grey to save everyone else, he feels he has nothing left to live for. Immortality has become a curse, so much so that even the most dangerous of proposals to make him mortal are tempting. He attempts to abandon his Wolverine identity, but he is approached by Mariko Yashida who takes him to Japan where her employer, who is on his death bed, wants to repay him for saving his life by offering him a cure for his mutant powers. However, as he enters into yet another battle to the death, it becomes obvious that his newfound vulnerability is a force to be reckoned with as, while eternal life forced him to face the emotional trauma of the past, mortality forces him to face the biggest torment of his life as the limits of his body and soul are truly tested. 

'The Wolverine' is a sequel to the 'X-Men' film series based on the Marvel comic books by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller and follows the timeline of events from 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand'. It has been directed by James Mangold ('Girl, Interrupted', 'Walk the Line', 'Cop Land') who co-wrote the script alongside Mark Bomback ('Total Recall', 'Die Hard 4.0'), Scott Frank ('Minority Report', 'Marley & Me') and Christopher McQuarrie ('The Usual Suspects', 'The Tourist').
