The follow up to the highly successful X-Men: Days Of Future Past has started filming, giving us our first look at Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Lana Condor.
Writer and producer of the new film, Simon kinberg, stated in Empire Magazine this month the the younger versions of iconic X-Men members are “as much a part
of the movie as our main cast” and that “Scott is not yet the squeaky-clean leader. Storm is
a troubled character who is going down the wrong path in life. And Jean is complex, interesting and not fully mature. It’s fun to see someone struggling with their powers when you know one day they’ll become the most powerful person in the world.”
X-Men: Apocalypse will be in cinemas May 26, 2016

If you have nothing happening this Sunday afternoon, I have one piece of advice. Get yourself to your nearest movie cinema and go watch Boyhood. I don’t want to say to much about the film, but it was amazing watching the process of the story being crafted over twelve years, and the young actor going from a boy to a man. If you don’t believe me, just listen to the parade of critics giving the film a enormous amount of praise. Richard Roeper went as far to say it was “one of the greatest films he had ever seen”.
If you’re my age you might not of heard of Richard Linklater. Or maybe you do. Or maybe you’ve seen his must commercially successful films “School of Rock” but had no idea about the man behind it. Well anyway, Linklater has been busy for for the past 12 years putting a film together about a boy growing up. I myself was hooked at an instant, but others I’ve talked to about the film, weren’t as convinced. Either way check out the trailer below, which features “Hero” from the Indie Rock band Family of the Year.
A few days ago, I finally finished reading The Fault In Our Stars, which I kept a slow pace to reach the finish line over six weeks. I thought this would be the kind of book, that would suck you right in and have it finished in one go in the matter of a couple of hours on a lonely afternoon. Maybe the reason half way through I felt uninterested, was due to the way I had built this up in my head. The first half wasn’t terrible, but due to the amount of publicity it gets on tumblr, my mind didn’t know how the second half was going to set itself apart from every other young adult fiction. Eventfully, things picked up, and by the books end, I can see what everyone was going on about.
Upon finishing the book, I did a google search about the upcoming film. Although I knew that Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort would be portraying our leads, Hazel Lancaster and Augustus Waters, but the leads are so well complemented in the supporting cast. Nat Wolff will play Isaac, Laura Dern and Sam Trammell will play Hazel’s parents, and Willem Dafoe will portray Peter Van Houten. It’s been a while since I have been this excited about a book adoptions cast.
Directed by Josh Boone, The Fault In Our Stars will be released June 6, 2014. Check out the trailer above.
