“Into The Further” Featurette For James Wan’s ‘Insidious: Chapter 2′ – Starring Rose Byrne & Patrick Wilson
This new behind-the-scenes featurette has arrived online for ‘Insidious: Chapter 2,’ the sequel to the low-budget 2011 horror pic. The sequel returns screenwriter Leigh Whannell and director James Wan as well as Barbara Hershey, Rose Byrne, Patrick Wilson and Ty Simpkins from the original, which grossed $97 million worldwide on a budget of $1.5 million.
The first ‘Insidious’ told the story of Josh and Renai Lambert and their son Dalton, confronting the demons that possess the young boy. The project was picked up by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and distributed by FilmDistrict. ‘Insidious: Chapter 2′ follows the haunted Lambert family as they seek to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world. The film is set for September 13th.
Universal Pictures send word that they’ve pegged Nick Stoller’s (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) ‘Townies’ for release on May 9th, 2014. The comedy follows a young couple (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) suffering from arrested development who are forced to live next to a fraternity house after the birth of their newborn baby. Zac Efron plays the head of the frat with whom Rogen and Byrne’s characters quickly form a rivalry. Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Dave Franco, Lisa Kudrow, Jake Johnson, Carla Gallo, Jason Mantzoukas and Carla Gallo also star. ‘Townies’ will share the May 9th release date with two other comedies: Jon Favreau’s directorial project ‘Chef’ and Tyler Perry’s ‘Single Mom’s Club.’
Halle Berry Talks ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past': “There’s Something Very Revealing & Shocking About Storm In This Movie…”
In a recent chat with Total Film, Halle Berry shed some rather interesting light on her role as Ororo Munroe/Storm in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ When asked how different is the experience of Bryan Singer’s “inbetweenquel” and Brett Ratner’s ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ the Oscar-winning actress says (quotes via CBM), “They’re like apples and oranges, they could not be more different. That’s for sure. The way they work is different. What you feel is different… Not that one is better or worse – they’re just very different. I was so happy to work with Bryan [Singer] again and I think it was nice for everyone to get back together. I wasn’t in as much as I was meant to be though,” Halle adds, referring to her pregnancy. “That kind of coloured what my involvement could be, which was why I was one of the first ones in and the first ones out,” she says. “My ever-growing belly was posing a constant challenge! What I could do was getting more limited so the role that I play is so different from what it could have been, due to my surprise pregnancy. But there’s something very revealing and shocking about Storm in this movie that I thought was needed. There are some things you find out about her that I think give you much more insight into who she is.”
Additionally, Halle Berry says ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ feels much bigger than the previous installments. “I think it’s big because there are so many X-Men in the movie. There’s the young X-Men and there’s the X-Men that started it all off. Just so many X-Men! You’re gonna get to see some more than other, but they’re all there. I think that adds to the bigness of it. The concept of the movie is pretty big too. The urgency is more important this time round. The threat is greater too.”
In a long line of news, behind-the-scenes images and teasers, director Bryan Singer has tweeted the above new production image from ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ revealing one of the full-size Sentinels and captioning the image with, “Here’s to the next 50 years.“The seventh installment in the ‘X-Men’ film series commenced filming in March in Montreal, Canada. It will be the first film in the ‘X-Men’ film series to be filmed in 3D.
Earlier this year Bryan Singer announced that ‘Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage joined the cast of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ Further reports bring word that the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning actor will play 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 announced that Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Halle Berry (Storm), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) will be joining the film – which is ostensibly a sequel to ‘X-Men: First Class,’ but will prominently feature actors from the first ‘X-Men’ trilogy.
Bryan Singer On ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past': “Charles (James McAvoy) Is In A Very Dark Hole… Erik (Michael Fassbender) Has Been Gathering Power”
Talking to Empire Magazine, Bryan Singer shared a number details about his upcoming X-Men flick, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ “It takes place in the future and the past and then all over the world, from Russia to China, then France, and Washington, New York,” he says. “It’s got scope, but most of the scope is in the breadth of the story.” That story for the film is inspired by the classic Chris Claremont/John Byrne “Days of Future Past” comic-book arc, which takes place in a possible future where mutantkind has been virtually wiped out by giant robots called Sentinels. A rogue group of X-fugees, led by Wolverine and Storm, try to save the future by changing the past, so they send one of their number back in time to hook up with the early X-Men.
Bryan Singer confirmed that ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is not a straight adaptation, though. “It’s its own story, inspired by Days Of Future Past”. The comic doesn’t feature Professor X or Magneto, but ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ the movie operates as a follow-up to ‘X-Men: First Class’ and the original trilogy. “I’d say it’s not a sequel to one of the others. It’s an inbetwequel — that’s what I call it, for lack of a better word. It takes place about ten years, give or take, after X-Men 3; and in the past it takes place about ten years after First Class.” Meaning that we see two sets of Professor Xs and Magnetos: the Patrick Stewart-plus-Ian McKellen vintage, and the James McAvoy-plus-Michael Fassbender younger versions introduced in First Class. “They’re in a radically different place,” explains Singer of the latter. “Charles is in a very dark hole when we meet him, and Erik has been gathering his power.”
First Official Look At Peter Dinklage As Bolivar Trask For ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past'; New Viral Material Released
“The mutant threat is the defining issue of our time. We can choose to stem the impending tide of extinction or we can stand by passively and allow it to wash away any remnants of our species.” – Founder, Bolivar Trask – 1973. Continuing the viral campaign for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the official Trask Industries viral site has been updated with a number of new images, videos and information about the villainous company. In the comic book story the film is based on, The Sentinels – massive robotic mutant hunters – rule the US, while mutants live in internment camps. The story also involves time travel, so most of the film will take place in the 70s. Bolivar Trask, the creator of The Sentinels, is being played by ‘Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage. Head on over to the website for lots more about Trask Industries.

Additionally, Hugh Jackman will be playing Wolverine again, and Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are to reprise their roles as Magneto and Professor X, with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy returning to play younger versions of the same characters in the film.
