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.

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."
