The official X-men Twitter account has revealed this new viral image from ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past.’ “Sentinels are capable of mobilizing in response to international turmoil at a moment’s notice. http://www.Trask-Industries.com.” Set for a May 23rd, 2014 release date, director Bryan Singer announced last month that production wrapped on ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ The seventh installment in the ‘X-Men’ film series began filming back in March in Montreal, Canada.
‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ has the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning actor Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) playing the main antagonist in the film, Bolivar Trask. With Bryan Singer merging past and present ‘X-Men’ actors for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the director has Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Halle Berry (Storm), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) returning for film – which is ostensibly a sequel to ‘X-Men: First Class,’ but will prominently feature actors from the first ‘X-Men’ trilogy.

The website’s overnight success brought instant fame to its principal architects and transformed the flow of information to news media and the world at large.
Robert Pattinson & Dane DeHaan To Star In Anton Corbijn’s ‘Life’; About James Dean & Photographer Dennis Stock
THR bring word that Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan are teaming up to star in ‘Life,’ the true story about the friendship between James Dean and Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock. DeHaan will bring Dean to life while Pattinson will portray Stock in the movie being directed by Anton Corbijn. Iain Canning, who produced the Oscar-winning drama ‘The King’s Speech’ and the acclaimed Steve McQueen/Michael Fassbender drama ‘Shame,’ is producing ‘Life’ with his See-Saw Films partner, Emile Sherman.
Dennis Stock was a young photographer working for the Magnum agency when he received an assignment that changed his life: to shoot a free-spirited actor named James Dean. The gig became a personal journey for both as they traveled from L.A. to New York to Indiana. During the trip, Stock captured now-iconic images of the actor before he was launched to stardom with ‘East of Eden’ (1955).
According to reports, Sophie Cookson has landed the female lead in Matthew Vaughn’s ‘The Secret Service,’ which already stars Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine. While Vaughn had looked at more well-known actresses like Emma Watson and Bella Heathcote, he decided to go with a fresh face who he felt better fit the part. He took a similar strategy in casting Egerton. Some may raise their eyebrows of both these choices, but Vaughn has shown he has a good eye for picking newcomers. Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Moretz were relative unknowns when he cast them as his leads in ‘Kick-Ass,’ and while Daniel Craig may have broken out as James Bond, execs realized Craig was leading man material after Vaughn set him to star in his crime caper ‘Layer Cake.’
Open Road Films has unveiled, via Fandango, this new poster for writer-director Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Machete Kills.’ In the sequel, Danny Trejo returns as the titular Machete, joined by Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba reprising their roles from the first film.
