With the release of The Mummy trailer, we got a good glimpse of the movie’s namesake in action. X-Men: Apocalypse had Oscar Isaac’s character first start his attack on humanity from that part of the world. As it turns out, the X-Men character, who was first teased in Days of Future Past, wound up making the people over at The Mummy go in a different direction than they had first planned.
If you saw Deadpool over the weekend — and given how much money it earned, odds are strong that you did — you may have noticed that the film makes prominent, simultaneously ironic and affectionate use of retro pop songs, a soundtrack choice that has become increasingly common in contemporary superhero movies.
Anna Paquin might just be her own worst critic. “I really don’t watch anything I’m in, because it just makes me feel uncomfortable,” the Oscar-winning actress star told Yahoo Movies recently, while discussing her latest movie, The Good Dinosaur. It was a few days before the movie’s premiere, and she still hadn’t been able to bring herself to watch the Pixar animated film, which opens Nov. 20. "I’m hoping by the premiere I’ll be able to see it again and watch the movie — as opposed to being like, ‘Seriously?! Oh my god!’”
Like the X-Men themselves, director Bryan Singer has taken a detour into the past. While finishing up his latest mutant saga, X-Men: Apocalypse (in theaters May 27, 2016), Singer went back to 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past and added 17 minutes of footage featuring Rogue (Anna Paquin), the power-absorbing mutant whose big scenes were cut from the theatrical version. The “Rogue Cut” of X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released on Blu-Ray, DVD and VOD on July 14. Talking to Yahoo Movies, Singer filled us in on the secrets of the Rogue Cut, and dropped some hints about what we’ll see in Apocalypse.

Michael Egan asked for a motion of voluntary dismissal four months after he accused the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' director of abusing him in the late 1990s.
It’s Kelsey Grammer, known for his small-screen role as Dr. Frasier Crane, a decade after the show bearing his character’s name went off the air. Three of his 2014 movies were big action productions: He was the villain of Transformers: Age of Extinction, he had a cameo as Beast in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and he plays the mercenary headhunter in this weekend’s Expendables sequel. This is who I am.” The actor, now 59, looked over his 2014 slate with us, sharing some choice behind-the-scenes details and a hint about the big action scene we’ll probably never get to see: The Expendables 3 Grammer had nothing but praise for Sylvester Stallone, using adjectives like “genius,” “juggernaut,” and “eloquent” to describe the stalwart actor. Grammer also let slip that Stallone “changed the camera angle to make me look shorter.” Transformers: Age of Extinction Grammer had to leave the Transformers set to film his Expendables role but said, “Michael Bay was cool about it.” Like Stallone, Bay was also cool about line changes, telling him at one point, “You’re Kelsey Grammer.
By Maane Khatchatourian @MaaneKhat Following X-Men: Days of Future Past ’s box office milestone, director Bryan Singer is teasing the next film in the ever-growing franchise. Singer created a new Instagram account today to share a photo of the first page of the X-Men: Apocalypse script. The monologue in the screenplay — dated June 6 — references a battle set at the Nile involving the Four Horsemen, who made an appearance in the end credits ofX-Men: Days of Future Past. This may also serve as indirect confirmation that he will be directing the Days of Future Past sequel as his status as helmer was up in the air after being sued for sexual assault.
The milestone was reached thanks to Bryan Singer’s summer tentpole “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which is on the verge of becoming the top-grossing film of the year to date. By Pamela McClintock Fox and Marvel’s X-Men franchise has become a $3 billion baby. The latest outing in the superhero franchise, Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, hit $702.2 million in global ticket sales on Tuesday, pushing the combined total gross of the seven films to $3.003 billion. Internationally, the franchise total is $1.7 billion, while the domestic cume is $1.3 billion.
Kelsey Grammer isn't done playing Beast just yet — or at least, he doesn’t hope to be. TheFraiser star made a brief cameo at the end of the X-Men franchise's most recent installment,X-Men: Days of Future Past as Beast, as the time-traveling nature of the mutant movie allowed many of the original cast...

The writer of the X-Men comic book shares some interesting facts about James Cameron wanting to make a Spider-man movie, his cameo in 'Days of Future Passed,' and his original plans for Magneto.
Here were the X-Men, Marvel’s ambassadors of tolerance and diversity, finally looking the part: There’s Chinese actress Fan Bingbing (Blink) creating time-traveling portals; French-African actor Omar Sy (Bishop) shooting energy blasts from his fingers; It’s a virtual United Nations of mutant-kind, under the command of out-and-proud Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde). Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) reveals his desperate plan to win the war: Kitty will project Wolverine’s consciousness into his younger self’s body, so he can prevent the Sentinels from ever being created. Xavier, Magneto (Ian McKellen), and Iceman stay by Wolverine’s side for moral support — or something like that — while Storm (Halle Berry) takes the rest of the team outside to the front lines of battle. In other words: in the first twenty minutes of the film, all of the non-white mutants are pushed aside.
Ironically, the character that people are buzzing loudest about upon leaving the theater is a new X-face: the superspeedy Quicksilver, played by Evan Peters. It was slowly laid out through the previsualization process (or “previs” for short, which means creating animated storyboards), and all of the slow-motion scenes were filmed on the last two days of the entire shoot.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” dominated the Memorial Day weekend box office and is on pace to become the highest-grossing film in the mutant franchise’s 14-year history. “‘X-Men’ did fine, but you had a pretty steep decline with ‘Godzilla,’ and ‘Blended’ just tanked,” Eric Handler, managing director of MKM Partners, said. “Those two films were the bigger issues.” The major hurdle that the domestic box office faced was that, aside from “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and “Blended,” there were no other major releases debuting in the marketplace. “Too many weekends fall victim to this mentality that it has to break a record or it’s a disappointment.” In terms of this year’s offerings, “Blended,” a romantic comedy reuniting Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, failed to recapture the spark that ignited “50 First Dates” and “The Wedding Singer,” tanking with less than $20 million over the long weekend.
Following the massive opening weekend for “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the film’s writer Simon Kinberg is revealing some details about the next movie, “X-Men: Apocalypse ” — and who will direct it.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will gross $111 million by the end of the four-day holiday weekend, according to studio estimates distributed early Monday. Factoring in overseas grosses, Bryan Singer's film has topped $300 million worldwide in its first few days. That is the biggest opening of any movie in the X-Men franchise, and it kicks off what should be a stellar summer for its distributor, Fox.

Based on a book by best-selling author and vlogger John Green, the movie boasts a massive following online and a movie star-in-training in Shailene Woodley.
X-Men: Days of Future Past involves Wolverine time-traveling back to 1973 to change history. However, if you look at the previous six X-Men-related movies, you’ll see that the directors and writers have been messing with history all along — though not necessarily on purpose. After rewatching all seven films, we found six major incongruities that just don’t jibe — and you can’t blame Wolverine for these. (Spoilers follow for those who haven’t seen DOFP.)
