With the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
Spidey wins again.
FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
a sad day in the Marvel Universe.
So if this sexual abuse and pedophilia is going on in Hollywood, what is going on in the music industry? Promising young teenage boys movie roles in exchange for sex is a sick practice and these executives who participate in this behavior needed to be outed and charged as sexual predators and jailed.
X-Men director Bryan Singer is accused of drugging and anally raping Michael F. Egan III, who was allegedly underage at the time. And now Singer may have company in court.
Egan’s lawyer Jeff Herman, explained that he’s going to sue for three more incidents, saying, “I’m going to file three more lawsuits Monday in Hawaii alleging three other Hollywood insiders were participating in the abuses of Mike Egan.”
Meanwhile, Singer’s lawyer maintains that this case is total bunk, saying: “It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan’s new movie is about to open in a few weeks.”
So we have another Jerry Sandusky on our hands with Bryan Singer ,who was so talented, that Hollywood decided to ignore his morbid fetish of sexually abusing young boys.

Egan, whose lawyer filed suit against Singer in federal court Wednesday, was originally from Nebraska and came to Hollywood with his family in his mid-teens. His suit alleges that Singer sexually abused him between the ages of 15 and 17 in the late-1990s. The accusations include forced sodomy.
Egan said his mother reported the alleged abuse to police back in the 1990s and even contacted the FBI.

Yeah I was talking sh*t about this movie but as its gets closer to being released I definitely wanna see it.
They are saying this will not be up long, so enjoy it while you can. Is that Samuel Jackson? I think so.
Nice pics but I need to see a trailer to get excited about this. And after seeing Predators I know not to buy too much into trailers anyway. After the jump check him out with the full Green Lantern suit on.
What the hell were her security doing? They should of pounced on him as soon as his arm cocked back.SMH.
Shocked Leona screamed and cried, “Oh my God” as the buck-toothed nut caught her on the temple with a fierce right hook.
The vicious attack came as the Bleeding Love singer, 24, signed copies of her new autobiography Dreams in a book shop.
She clutched her head and burst into tears as she was whisked away from the scene by minders and taken to hospital.
Five security guards jumped on the 6ft 5in thug and pinned him to the ground.
Leona’s furious boyfriend Lou Al-Chamaa, who was with her at the signing, tried to confront the warped fan but was held back.
Please do not try this at home kiddies.

The man with the claws is back, and this time he’s bringing his memories. For comic fans X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the realisation of two long-held dreams: to see Wolvie go berserk in his first solo screen adventure and, more importantly, to discover how he became the hero he is. The latter. however, could prove to be a bitter pill.
Ever since Wolverine first appeared in the pages of the Incredible Hulk in 1974 and later in The Uncanny X-Men, fans have craved an origin story. Like Jason Bourne, Wolverine is a mysterious figure whose past is a muddy soup of government secrets, black ops and tragedy. Most of his life he could not remember and the parts he did, he wasn’t telling. And that was part of his appeal – that and the claws.
Most superhero comics deal with origin stories in the first few issues but Wolverine was different. Readers became intimate with his mutant abilities – heightened senses, a healing factor that allows him to recover from almost any wound and retractable claws – and his gruff yet noble heart, but not his past. Over the years writers have fed readers little snippets but these have only served to make him more of an enigma: he fought in the Second World War, sinister government scientists erased his memories and covered his bones with an indestructible metal alloy, he may have been the first mutant, he is somehow connected by blood to the villain Sabretooth and his real name is not Logan but James. Teasing readers for almost 30 years is a dangerous game: once you decide to tell the origin story, as Marvel did in 2001, it better live up to expectations.
Fresh off the muscular performance of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” at the boxoffice, Fox has thrown into development a spinoff featuring Deadpool, the wise-cracking mercenary played in the film by Ryan Reynolds.
Deadpool is known as “the merc with a mouth,” a character that under Reynolds lived up to his billing in “Wolverine” until the end, when the movie deviated from the comic book persona, imbuing him with several superpowers and sewing his mouth shut.
It is understood that Reynolds would regain the ability to mouth off, with the movie going back to the roots of the character known for his slapstick tone and propensity to break the fourth wall. The character also was disfigured in “Wolverine,” though it’s unclear at this time how much the studio would want to mess with Reynolds’ handsome mug.
The project is out to writers. Continue reading

Big comic book and scifi movie extravaganzas can make big points about society, sometimes even catching the zeitgeist, as we saw with 2008’s The Dark Knight. The X-Men series has been at the forefront of this, exploring the changing nature of humanity, our relationship with technology, and the concept of otherness in a mass society. And doing it amidst unique powers, cool tech, and some bracing action.
Unfortunately, most of that which intrigues one intellectually and moves one emotionally is missing in the fourth entry in the franchise, X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
It’s not a bad movie. (And it does provide an amusing explanation for one of the most famous events of the 1970s.) In fact, it is shaping up as a big hit. It’s a pretty good action flick, but the movie lacks the intellectual depth and soul frequently found in the X-Men series. I was entertained. But it’s going to fall far short measured against the Star Trek and Terminator movies coming later this month in the cultural significance sweepstakes.
The basic plot seems borrowed, at least in part, from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1985 action vehicle, Commando. Somebody is killing members of Wolverine’s old special ops team, and his old commanding officer visits him to discuss it. Bad things ensue.
Like the reboot of Batman, this picture is an origin story. But it explains, well, nothing, before jumping into the action. Continue reading
Well I guess we can safely say that the leak probably fueled even more interest in this movie, which seems to have done very well at the box office this weekend. More below:
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Comic book movie “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” slashed its rivals at box offices over the weekend with a $160 million worldwide debut, leaping to No. 1 on ticket charts in a solid start to Hollywood’s summer.
The action adventure, starring Hugh Jackman as the heroic Wolverine who wields long claws as his weapons, raked in $87 million in the United States and Canada and helped push total ticket sales just slightly ahead of the same weekend last year, according to tracking service Hollywood.com Box Office.
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — Someone stole an “incomplete and early version” of the next installment in the blockbuster “X-Men” movie series and posted it on the Internet this week, according to the studio that owns the billion-dollar film franchise.
Twentieth Century Fox said the FBI was investigating who leaked “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which is set for release in U.S. theaters May 1.
The digital file quickly spread across the Internet and was available for free, but illegal, downloading from hundreds of easily found Web sites.
“The source of the initial leak and any subsequent postings will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law; the courts have handed down significant criminal sentences for such acts in the past,” the studio’s statement said.
Removing the pirated files from the Internet may prove an impossible challenge, an industry source said. This source did not want to be named because of the sensitive nature of the matter.
Although the studio said it was removed from the Web site that first hosted it, the digital file has probably been downloaded tens of thousands of times, the source said. Continue reading

Hollywood star Patrick Stewart, who plays Professor Xavier in the X-Men science fiction films, has had a real-life professorship given to him.
The actor was taking on the new role of Professor of Performing Arts at Huddersfield University, where he is chancellor, in a ceremony on Monday.
He was also leading 400 students in the university’s inaugural graduate procession through the town centre.
Stewart said of his professorship: “I’m truly honoured to receive this title.”
Stan Lee, the man who brought you such iconic figures as The Hulk, The Uncanny X-Men, Iron Man and Spider Man has joined forces with another eclectic mind, Richard Branson and his Virgin Comic imprint. After being unceremoniously forced out of Marvel and on the brink of ruin, Lee has been resurrected by Virgin to head their comic book division, where he’ll be in charge of developing the next era of superheroes. Rather than relying on the celebrity of a superhero character, Virgin has experimented with partnering with brand name celebrities that have introduced their own unique character twists, creating niche market “heroes” and “antiheroes.”
In addition to Lee, Virgin has already inked deals with director John Woo, Guy Richie, actor Nicolas Cage, porn star Jenna Jameson, and spiritualist Deepak Chopra as well as others. With the inclusion of Mr. Lee, the hope to attract the best writers and illustrators to their ever-expanding team in order to position themselves to compete with the powerhouse Marvel Comics and DC Comics. No word yet on what the first Lee-helmed project will be or if he will be further developing any characters he’d previously been working on. In addition to the Virgin deal, Lee has just released a political humor “photo” book called “Election Daze” that is shooting up the charts.
As reported here before, Will.I.AM is riding a wave of success with “Yes We Can”, now a bonafide anthem, and plans on opening up a lane for artists wanting to skip the major label route. Re-inventing himself once again as an online video producer expect more things to come from his new online company DIPDIVE.
With todays new music models steadily evolving it is good to see mainstream hip hop finally accepting the change and using it to take control of their prospective careers. This trend will increase and you will have more labels filling for bankruptsy because of their unwillingness to move forward and to make technology an ally.

Being at the top of the music world has given many artists opportunities in Hollywood that they would’nt normally have, and Will.I.AM is no different. First riding the wave of success of The Black Eye Peas, Fergie, and his own anthemic song“Yes We Can” for Barack Obama, he now is poised to join the X-Men franchise and star in the forthcoming Wolverine movie as John Wraith AKA Kestrel. Let’s just hope he does the role justice and I know they are probably rioting in the comment area over at Aint it Cool News. For more check out IESB.net
Riding on the back of the success of the Billion dollar grossing X-Men trilogy, Marvel Comics is gearing up to release a full length movie about Wolverine to theaters in May of 2009. Hugh Jackman will be reprising his role as the furry superhero as he traces his shady origins. You can expect guest appearances from a slew of characters, namely Wolverine’s nemesis Sabretooth. According to USA Today, Jackman will be taking on producing duties as well to bring the backstory to life of a character that he has grown to love.
“I think one of the reasons the X-Men took off is that it connected in a way nobody saw,” Jackman says. “They’re mutants with powers. But they’re also outcasts for being, and everyone connects with that on some level. And who wouldn’t want the power to get back at the people who ostracized you? I became a fan of Wolverine like everyone else. That’s why I keep holding on to the character.”
