Andy Serkis talks about the Planet of the Apes franchise’s length

Andy Serkis: “To be honest, it’s very, very early in where we choose to drop our anchor in the next film, so it could be five years after the event. It could be the night after the events of where we left ‘Dawn,’ so it’s very difficult to know where the story is going right at this moment because it’s being written as we speak. I know part of the desire for Matt [Reeves] to do this next movie about continuing the enjoyment of seeing these apes evolve. It might be three films. It could be four. It could be five. Who knows? The journey will continue. It might not necessarily be summarized or completely fulfilled in this next one. The point being, eventually we know that we’re going to end up back at ‘The Planet of the Apes,’ but whether it’s this film or not, I don’t know.

A hint about who plays Apocalypse

Jeff Sneider from The Wrap, during the Meet the Movie Press podcast, dropped a bomb. Another bomb, different from the one which said what actresses are eyed for the role of a younger Jean Grey.

Jeff Sneider said that he won’t give away the name of the actor that will portray Apocalypse, but he said that we all have heard him in the previous year saying this word quite a lot.

So is it Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill or Idris Elba?

Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld eyed for Jean Grey

Back in September it was announced that X-Men: Apocalypse will conclude the trilogy which began with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past. Furthermore, it was announced that the studio is searching for a young Jean Grey (although it isn’t known yet whether this young actress will appear in the franchise beyond X-Men: Apocalypse).

Insiders say that the studio is now eyeing Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass) and Elle Fanning (Maleficent), who have already met with director Bryan Singer. Another actress is also wanted for the role, her being Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit). From these three, Elle Fanning has the least chances of being cast, since she is not particularly interested in the role.

But these are only three of the actresses that are being pursued for portraying a young Jean Grey. The screen tests haven’t been made yet, so at this moment anything goes.

As far as we are concerned, out of these three Hailee Steinfeld seems like the best choice to be made.

Fantastic Four synopsis revealed?

Reed is a genius convenience store clerk with Ben. Reed’s parents don’t care about him, and Ben’s dad is abusive. They’re good friends and have each other’s backs. Reed writes a paper for community college on teleportation that attracts the attention of Dr. Franklin Storm, CEO of the Baxter Building research center.

 

Storm has a son, Johnny, and an adoptive daughter, Sue, whose father, Storm’s old partner, died in an experiment gone wrong. Johnny and Sue are party kids, and Sue is particularly disdainful of science. Reed and Sue don’t get along at first.

Victor Doomashev is a anti-social Eastern European computer programmer and hacktivist who calls himself “Doom”. He hates the 1%, particularly Storm, whom he claims corrupts science for profit.

Storm uses Reed’s paper to complete some equations on a machine to access another dimension, the N-Zone. Reed invites Ben to watch the machine being turned on. Sue and Johnny are also there. Doom manages to hack into the Baxter Building’s servers and use a computer virus to damage the machine, which explodes. Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben are exposed to otherwordly energy and become mutants with powers that they can’t control.

Storm takes them to the Baxter Building and creates containment suits for their powers. They begin to train. Reed and Storm also begin developing a way to revert the accident. Sue blames Reed for everything, but they eventually become friends and then a couple. Ben can switch off his powers when he’s not in danger. Johnny changes colors based on heat intensity, and Sue has some borderline telekinetic thing. Reed is pretty much Reed.

Doom finds out that the four have acquired powers and becomes angry it’s not him, so he comes up with a plan to break into the Baxter Building to access the N-Zone through the rebuild machine. As a distraction, he reprograms a bunch of stolen military drones, the “Doombots”, to attack the building. The four come together as a team for the first time and save people.

Doom activates the machine and gets technopathy powers or something, basically energy blasts and making machines obey to him, and a fight ensues. The machine goes critical, and, in order to prevent it from exploding and destroying the city, the four push into it and Storm shuts it off.

There’s a countdown before it reaches critical mass. Inside the N-Zone, the four battle Doom again, and manage to leave him trapped there after he disfigures himself soaking up too much power. The Four manage to escape, but Ben gets the blunt of it to protect Reed and can’t switch back.

The machine is destroyed, Doom is gone, the four have learned to work as a team, and Reed vows to find a cure for Ben. And it ends there.

A new villain for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

It appears that some lucky individuals have already seen the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As the sources say, the trailer will also feature (besides a Millenium Falcon speeding and shooting towards the audience) a first look at the new villain, which seems to be a mix between a cyborg and an Inquisitor (as seen in the new series Star Wars: Rebels).

However, what the sources saw was just a glimpse, the character actually wearing a mask – so he isn’t revealed entirely. Furthermore, since the same sources say that this villain resembles a lot Darth Revan from the Knights of The Old Republic game – but since the game isn’t canon, it is very possible that this character isn’t Revan.

For now, it is believed that the trailer will debut this December, together with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes on the 18th of December 2015.

New alien for Prometheus 2?

In the end of Prometheus, we see the Engineer’s chest bursting and a new life-form being born – and alien that looked very similar to the xenomorphs the Alien franchise made famous. Ridley Scott first said that these kind of aliens will not be featured any longer in the Prometheus franchise.

However, just recently, he said that he will try to bring a new kind of xenomorph to the big screens. To quote him exactly, he said, “So with Prometheus 2 what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act.

But the question is – wouldn’t this be like changing the main actor mid-franchise? Furthermore, given the fact that the xenomorph is one of the most iconic creatures brought on the silver screen, does it need to be freshened up? We don’t really think so – even more, right now the idea of a no-xenomorph Prometheus sequel sounds better than before.
