Amy Berg
Earlier this week, some bombshell allegations rocked Hollywood, when 31-year-old Michael Egan filed a federal lawsuit accusing "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" director Bryan Singer of sexually abusing him on numerous occasions in 1999. Singer's lawyers swiftly denied the allegations, and have announced plans to countersue. But the story has now taken another turn, and one that goes beyond the court proceedings.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Evidently Bryan Singer’s “X-Men Days Of Future Past” is one of the most expensive movies 20th Century Fox has ever made. I think this is the biggest movie Fox has made that James Cameron didn’t direct,” writer/producer Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: First Class”) told Entertainment Weekly in this week’s ‘DOFP’ cover story. “We have to deliver, and that’s really hard. Plus, we don’t use guns, we use powers. The power is a visual effect. So by its very nature, it’s going to be pricey,” producer Lauren Schuler Donner added.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
A gap across time is bridged in Bryan Singer’s latest comic book entry “X-Men: Days of Future Past," which means the director has the dominating task of doubling his cast of mutants while keeping the film narratively taut. We’ve heard of various ways he might tackle this issue, but today we’ve also got several new behind-the-scenes clips taking us deeper into the film’s dizzying timelines, locations, and approach.

Noah, Russell Crowe, Aronofsky
This week sees the release of “Noah,” and it’s notable for a number of reasons. For one, it’s that it’s a relatively rare Biblical movie not aimed principally at religious audiences (which may or may not pay off). For another, it’s the latest film from “Requiem For A Dream” and “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky. But perhaps more than anything else, it’s a movie that costs $125 million, almost four times as much as the director’s most expensive previous film, “The Fountain,” the helmer having been given the keys to Paramount’s war chest after the surprise smash success of “Black Swan,” which made nearly $300 million worldwide.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
While much of the attention in the lead up to "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" has been all about the serious number of mutants recruited for the sequel, maybe we should've been paying attention to the wardrobe. Jumping between the past and present, DOFP has given the cast plenty to play with when it comes to their look, and some of that is on full display in this new batch of images.

X-Men Days Of Future Past
In terms of superhero team-up movies in 2014, not even "Guardians Of The Galaxy" (first trailer here) can touch "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" which has supersized the cast with faces new and old, from films past and present, to present more mutants than we have ever seen on the big screen. But with a story that will be jumping through time, how on Earth will Bryan Singer manage the narrative and allow it to be easy to follow, while juggling so many characters? Well, he's looked back on his breakout film "The Usual Suspects" for some inspiration on how to keep things in check.

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." Meaning the “X-Men” of Bryan Singer’s original series and the younger versions of those characters in the Matthew Vaughn-directed prequel, “X-Men: First Class.” What a better way to give Marvel’s “The Avengers” a run for their money then make a time-spanning picture that features more than 20 heroes and villains. Of course, that many characters is also a recipe of disaster potentially, but we’ve voiced those concerns in the past, so that’s that.
