The Humbling Al Pacino Greta Gerwig
Okay, nearly three years ago, word first surfaced that Al Pacino was looking to reteam with Barry Levinson for an adaptation of Philip Roth's "The Humbling." And that was pretty much the last we heard of it, but somewhere along the way, filming started and this thing was cast cast so either credit a secretive production or apologies for sleeping on this one.

Bryan Singer Superman Returns Kevin Spacey Brandon Routh
For a film that no-one really seems to much like and everyone thinks of as fairly unmemorable, the filmosphere sure does do a lot of talking about 2006's Bryan Singer-directed Superman reboot, “Superman Returns.” We right here have debated its merits as a Superman movie, trashed it, and speculated about the sequel to it that never was on account of its having underwhelmed more or less everybody.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Bryan Singer’s upcoming "X-Men Days Of Future Past" can likely be seen in two different ways: either you’re anticipating the hell out of this movie with its ultimate X-Men fanboy-driven cast of characters or you’re generally worried that a movie with over 25 super heroes and villains is going to be one big disaster.

25 Movies That Defined The Sundance Film Festival
As you might have noticed from the wall-to-wall level of coverage over the last week or so, the Sundance Film Festival has grown considerably from its humble beginnings back in 1978, when it was inaugurated as the Utah/US Film Festival and had a remit to showcase exclusively American-made independent films, and to promote filmmaking in the region. Robert Redford's involvement as a guiding patron led to its name change in 1981, from which point on it expanded gradually, until a kind of Cambrian explosion occurred with the arrival of "sex lies & videotape " 25 years ago this, a film that, with only a touch of hyperbole, could be said to have remade the festival into the modern titan it is today.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
They may be from rival studios, and feature a whole host of different characters, but fuck it, we're combining new pics and promo material from "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" into one post because you can bet some studio executives are trying to figure out how to crossover the franchises anyway (even if it's logistically impossible given the vying business interests involved).

Can you believe it's been ten years since "X-Men 2" hit theaters? To say that the cinematic comic book landscape has changed dramatically in that time would be a massive understatement. We're now in the era of world building, and as we detailed yesterday, pretty much every studio is attempting to construct massive, linking universes for their comic properties, because bigger may not mean better, but it does generally equals lots more cash. And right in the mix is Bryan Singer who, though he still has yet to deliver "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," is already starting to percolate ideas for the 2016 sequel "X-Men: Apocalypse."

Last week came a double whammy of news over at Fox, that was more or less an early Christmas present for comic movie fans: first, it was announced that "X-Men: Apocalypse" was set for a 2016 release date and second, it would likely be part of a Marvel-esque universe of movies writer Simon Kinberg was building. Well, today brings with it a couple more updates starting with Vulture confirming that Bryan Singer will be back in the director's chair for 'Apocalypse,' but perhaps more intriguingly, word has already surfaced on how it links to "X-Men: Days Of Future Past." Warning: MASSIVE SPOILERS AHEAD.

After next year's "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" which is going to be a super size smorgasboard of every character Fox seemingly has the rights too, stuffed like a Blondie sandwich into the movie, what we of course need is announcement of even more, right?

Anyone who actually saw "Trick 'r Treat," the wonderful horror anthology produced by Bryan Singer and Legendary Pictures and written and directed by Michael Dougherty (who co-wrote "X2: X-Men United" for Singer), instantly fell under its spell. It was a horror film set during Halloween that followed the various inhabitants of a small suburban community as a whole host of supernatural terrors are unleashed (the film's comic book-y format allowed for the different threads of the anthology to overlap and crisscross) and was equal parts scary and funny. In short: it instantly became an annual classic, for those inclined towards that sort of thing. And many years later, Dougherty has announced that there will, indeed, be a sequel. Get your pumpkins ready for carving, boys and ghouls!
