Director Bryan Singer previously revealed X-Men: Apocalypse would be more of a sequel to 2011′s X-Men: First Class. Screenwriter Simon Kinberg recently echoed Singer’s sentiment, adding the upcoming film would focus primarily on the First Class cast. Having said that, Kinberg confirmed fans’ speculation which arose following the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Expect to see more familiar faces from the original trilogy. Don’t proceed if you haven’t watched the latest film yet.

With Memorial Day here, the Summer blockbuster season is officially underway. Taking the first weekend handily was Professor X (both past and present) along with his mutant friends. X-Men: Days of Future Past raked in a powerful $111 million domestically. The number is good enough to land the latest X-Men flick (7th in the franchise) among the top Memorial Day weekend Top 5 openings of all-time. 2006′s X-Men: The Last Stand ($122.9 million) also occupies a spot in the Top 5.

Not so fortunate was Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore’s latest outing together. Third time didn’t prove so lucky for this adorable duo. Blended opened in third with only $18.2 million, representing one of Sandler’s worst comedy openings in almost two decades. Even the much-maligned Jack and Jill earned $25 million during its opening frame and that was only three days.

Sandler and Barrymore should’ve quit while they were ahead with the one-two combo of The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. Despite horrible reviews, the film earned a solid A- Cinema Score. Maybe a slow and steady run is in its future. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

Movie Review: X-Men: Days Of Future Past

In: Matt, Movies

The latest installment in the X-Men franchise hits theatres today. While I can’t claim to be an expert on the X-Men franchise, I’ve seen all the films in the series and can comfortably say that this might be my personal favorite. In its best moments it’s crazy fun, exciting with strong moments of emotion supported by a wildly talented cast.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past opens in a dark future. The war has devastated the world of both humans and mutants alike. The Sentinels, who seek out to destroy the last remaining mutants, patrol the world. In a last ditch effort to save themselves, and the world, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is sent back in time (or rather, his consciousness is sent back) to persuade Magneto (Patrick Stewart/Michael Fassbender) and Xavier (Gandalf/James McAvoy) to join him in preventing Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from murdering scientist Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). Her assassination of Trask is what initially garners support for the Sentinel program, which also uses her DNA to allow the Sentinels to adapt and mimic any mutant power.

Back in December, Bryan Singer shared the crushing news that Anna Paquin’s part in X-Men: Days of Future Past was cut from the film. That sent shockwaves among hardcore comic geeks. Here’s what the 48-year-old director said at the time.

“Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous,” Singer says. “It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in — the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

Apparently, that’s now all changed. In the film’s third trailer, which was recently released, Paquin’s name now appears in the credits. A rep for 20th Century Fox confirmed to Buzzfeed that she will, in fact, be in the flick. Don’t get your hopes up too high though. The rep added, “Essentially, [it’s] a cameo.” BOO!!!

Check out the latest trailer below which gives a more in-depth look at Wolverine’s journey to the future to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants. It also gives a better look at Quicksilver and the other newly-added mutants. It’s the best trailer yet.

Before X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters on May 23, here’s a little assignment in the form of a fun interactive widget. No one likes homework, especially history but these are fun little lessons. I promise.

In an effort to bridge the gap from when X-Men First Class took place in 1962 to the dystopian world where the new film transpires, FOX shares 25 key historical events in the struggle between mutants and humans that led to the state of affairs in 2018.

Warning, there are some slightly spoilerish items about some of the characters. For instance how Colossus came to be. Let’s just say it involves a real-life nuclear disaster. Proceed with caution.

If the actual movie is half as good as all the promotional artwork, X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to be beyond epic. The studio just released a whackload of new posters highlighting Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Ian McKellan. Pretty much the big names. Sorry Ellen Page, Evan Peters, Boo Boo Stewart and the rest of you non A-listers ;)

The highly-anticipated film hits theaters on May 23. Check out the new posters below.

Recently, rumors surfaced that Halle Berry was going to meet a fate similar to Anna Paquin and end up on the editing room floor. Quickly, the powers-that-be including Berry squashed that speculation. It appears they were telling the truth. Berry as Storm appears in the new X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer alongside all the other mutants. The second trailer fuels my excitement for the flick even more than the first one. Check it out below.

That’s right, you read that correctly. 25 mother effin’ different covers. For it’s biggest world exclusive ever, Empire Magazine is rolling out twenty-five different covers over the course of today. Each major cast member will receive their own treatment.

“#XMen cast & I are exclusively revealing 25 @EmpireMagazine covers, one every hour, starting now. #Empire25,” director Bryan Singer tweeted.

The cast from the original X-Men movies (Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Ellen Page) join forces with the X-Men: First Class bunch (James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult) to tell this epic tale.

The film sees X-Men fighting for their lives in an apocalyptic future where Sentinel robots (see above photo), created by Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), have laid waste to mutant and humankind. To prevent this catastrophe, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is sent back in time to warn 1970s Professor X about the future and the event that sets everything in motion.

Be sure to check this post often to see the updates. Weigh in afterward on which cover is your favorite and least favorite.
