20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for director Bryan Singer's sequel/prequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. The story finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants. This trailer is extremely similar to the footage they showed at Comic-Con this summer (right down to the Hans Zimmer score), which sent Hall H into a frenzy. It does an excellent job of conveying the darker tone of the film as well as teasing the spectacle that will be on display, and I really can't wait to see more. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, and Halle Berry. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D May 23, 2014. Here's a synopsis for X-Men: Days of Future Past: The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original "X-Men" film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from "X-Men: First Class," in an epic battle that must change the past -- to save our future.
Part of me will always love the X-Men. I watched the animated series when I was in third grade. I became addicted to collecting the trading cards. And while some can point to Blade as the beginning of the modern superhero movie, it didn’t truly begin in earnest until Bryan Singer's 2000 picture. It’s not an incredible picture, but it’s satisfying. The sequel, X2, is one of the best superhero movies ever made. X-Men: First Class gave the franchise a fresh spark of life, and now it’s all coming together with X-Men: Days of Future Past. We’ve been wondering if it’s too crowded, but perhaps the question we should be asking is, “Can you have too much of a good thing?” Hit the jump for my recap of the panel, which included the premiere of the first footage from the movie. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 16, 2014. Immediately after the panel for The Wolverine ends, Hugh Jackman brings Bryan Singer up on stage. Says they’re a year out and a lot of the effects are unfinished, but he did cut something together. It’s in 3D: So many mutants but the core is that we see Xavier, Magneto, Storm, and Wolverine in the future. Xavier says they need to send Logan’s mind back to his younger body and convince young Xavier and young Magneto to avert the disastrous future. In the future, we see the cast members from the first three movies in dark, futuristic-looking clothing but not cheesy. It’s austere, ...
If it wasn’t clear before, it certainly is now: director Bryan Singer is making one incredibly ambitious film with the X-Men: First Class sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. In addition to First Class stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Jennifer Lawrence, we previously learned that X-Men actors Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, and Hugh Jackman will be reprising their roles in the upcoming follow-up. The story involves time travel and alternate realities, so the mixing of the younger actors and older actors fits well within the film’s complex plot. It appears that Singer isn’t simply bringing a few stars from X-Men and X2 back for Days of Future Past, as he revealed on Twitter today that Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) will also be joining the cast of Days of Future Past. Hit the jump for more. Very excited to welcome #annapaquin, @ellenpage & @shawnrashmore to #XMen #DaysofFuturePast - thank you @brettratner for letting them live! — Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) January 26, 2013 So it appears that Singer is putting together one very large cast for the upcoming sequel. The overall plot of the story essentially centers on the characters in the past being warned about and—trying to avoid—a very unappealing dystopian future. In the comics arc, Kitty Pryde plays a major role as she communicates with the characters in the past to warn them of a major assassination that’s going to take place in her present. In addition to the aforementioned actors/characters, the story also involves the ...

On Season 5 of HBO’s True Blood, actor Giles Matthey plays Claude, a mysterious fairy who has caught the eye of vamp Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll). Distantly related to Sookie (Anna Paquin), he will be mentoring her in the ways of all things fairy, later on in the season. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Giles Matthey talked about his crazy audition for the hit TV show and how he had no idea what role he was actually auditioning for, how he caught up on the previous four seasons and became an obsessive fan himself once he was cast, that he loves meeting fans of the show that are as excited about it as he is, how he sees Claude as loyal and protective, and how much fun his introduction into the story was. He also talked about what attracts him to a specific project and what inspired him to try his hand at acting, in the first place. Check out what he had to say after the jump. Collider: How did you come to be a part of the show this season? GILES MATTHEY: I had just gone to the Globes with my girlfriend, which I was lucky enough to be invited to by her. I was on my way back to New York when my agent said, “Please try to get to this audition.” So, I went to the audition and I knew of the show before I went to the audition, but I had no idea who anyone ...
Following a slew of “mini trailers” and one brief teaser, the first full trailer for the upcoming fifth season of HBO’s True Blood has gone online. The clip shows quite a bit of footage from the upcoming season, including the promise of a prolonged Bill/Eric team-up (please tell me a buddy vampire spin-off is in the works), the return of an old fan favorite character, and the promise of more of that weird clown face that apparently appears when witches get high or something. However, the best part about this trailer is Mr. Christopher Meloni. He joins the cast this season as the head of The Authority, a council made up of the most powerful vampires in existence. If you remember the predicament that Bill and Eric found themselves in last season and compound that with the returning baddie, you should have some idea of where this promisingly badass Meloni character comes in. Hit the jump to watch the trailer, and if you missed all the character posters that were recently unveiled, click here. The fifth season of True Blood premieres on HBO on June 10th.
Frankly, I gave up on vampires a long time ago, and it takes a lot for me to get interested in them, and that includes the HBO series True Blood. However, we know that there are plenty of True Blood-thirsty fans out there clamoring for every bit of hype as we lead up to the fifth season premiere on June 10th at 9/8c. Therefore, you'll be happy to know that in addition to the most recent trailer and teaser poster, we now have a batch of 12 character posters (with Anna Paquin, Alexander Skarsgard, Stephen Moyer and more) that have so much red on them they would make Shaun of the Dead blush. Honestly, they're not all that special, but for fans who have a favorite character (or enjoy seeing Christopher Meloni with fangs), they could make a cool iPhone background or something like that. Anyway, you can check out all 12 of the new posters, along with the most recent trailer, after the jump. Here's the full season five trailer, followed by the posters: [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="1"]
The trailer and poster for Kenneth Lonergan's Margaret have gone online. The long-awaited and long-delayed follow-up to Lonergan's You Can Count on Me, Lonergan centers on a high school student (Anna Paquin) who discovers that watching Alison Janney get hit by a bus will really throw you for a loop. There's definitely going to be a tough balance here between hitting honest emotions of a teenager who witnesses and feels responsible for a tragedy and going too melodramatic. Hopefully Lonergan and his excellent cast, which also includes Mark Ruffalo and Matt Damon, can keep the story grounded. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars J. Smith-Cameron, Jean Reno, Jeannie Berlin, and Matthew Broderick. Margaret opens September 30th. Click over to Apple to see the trailer in HD. Here's the official synopsis for Margaret: MARGARET centers on a 17-year-old New York City high-school student who feels certain that she inadvertently played a role in a traffic accident that has claimed a woman's life. In her attempts to set things right she meets with opposition at every step. Torn apart with frustration, she begins emotionally brutalizing her family, her friends, her teachers, and most of all, herself. She has been confronted quite unexpectedly with a basic truth: that her youthful ideals are on a collision course against the realities and compromises of the adult world. ---
Summer is almost here which means it's almost time for some steamy and bloody (though hopefully not at the same time) vampire encounters with the fourth season of True Blood on HBO. And to keep getting you excited we have an all-new trailer and poster for the season premiere coming on June 26th at 9/8c on HBO. This season seems to be getting really political with the vampire species attempting to win over certain sects of the human population and obviously witches are coming into play now too. This season should really mix things up a bit, and I know fans are foaming at the mouth for as much True Blood as they can get, so without further adieu, checkout the new trailer and poster after the jump.

HBO has released a new trailer for the upcoming season of True Blood, giving us our first look at quite a bit of footage from the fourth season. When we left off at the end of last season, Sookie was all up in her fairy business, Bill was fly-fighting with fellow vampire Sophie-Anne, and we were teased with the existence of witches. If we’ve learned anything from past seasons of the Alan Ball series, we can expect some batshit-craziness from pretty much every episode. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Season four of True Blood begins June 26th. Here’s the trailer for season four of True Blood (via TV Line):
