Apocalypse

X-Men: Days of Future Past may not have been the massive box office hit that Fox was hoping to have, a near 60% drop in box office revenue in its second week hurt the film’s numbers, but the hugely positive response was enough to give studio heads the confidence to move forward with its sequel X-Men: Apocalypse.

Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg have been hard at work trying to crack the script, and it looks like they have finally done it, as it has been confirmed that filming will begin next year in Canada.

The Lego Movie Image Header

As the big summer movie season is winding down and soon it will be Oscar season, it’s that time of the year to figure out what my top ten movies of the year, as we just passed the halfway point of the year. At this point I have seen 54 new movies, and once again, this includes any new or old movie that I have seen for the first time. And so the first cut, is the easiest, as I get rid of any movie that didn’t come out in 2014.

But as the final ten movies are locked it, a few just missed the cut, and those were Godzilla and Life Itself. I was one of the few people who enjoyed Godzilla, even with its issues, and Life Itself was a great look at Roger Ebert, a man who all of us who review movies want to be like.

But enough about the ones that didn’t make it, let’s get to My Top Ten Movies Of 2014 (So Far).

X-Men: Days Of Future Past changed the way we look at the X universe. What once appeared to be a reboot turned into a film franchise that reset itself thanks to the powers of time travel, much like how J.J. Abrams rebooted the Star Trek franchise.

Looking forward to X-Men: Apocalypse, the possible members of the heroic mutants are endless. But the sequel will be headlined by the cast of X-Men: First Class, with Hugh Jackman returning as Wolverine and Channing Tatum replacing Taylor Kitsch as Gambit. But what about the cast of the original trilogy?

Well Apocalypse screenwriter Simon Kinberg talked to The Daily Beast about how the cast of the original trilogy will be reprising their roles. Minor spoilers follow after the jump.

“As new species are formed through natural evolution, others will become rarer and rarer, and finally extinct. The forms which stand in closest competition with those undergoing modification and improvement will naturally suffer most.” – Charles Darwin, “Origin of the Species”

With X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg rewrite history and right the wrongs of sequels past. Based on the celebrated storyline from Chris Claremont and John Byrne‘s 1981 run on Uncanny X-Men, Singer’s latest X-film acts as a sequel to both 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand and 2011’s X-Men: First Class, as well as a follow-up to 2013’s The Wolverine.

2023. In the post-apocalyptic ruins of New York City, mutants are enslaved by Sentinels, biomechanical hunter-killers that have decimated the Earth’s population and reduced the world to rubble. In Moscow, the remaining X-Men plan to send Wolverine back to 1973 to stop Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from killing scientist Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), whose assassination triggers the Sentinel Program’s approval by President Nixon.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past banner

If you’ve watched the entire X-Men film franchise, you may have noticed some glaring errors in the film’s chronology. When exactly Professor X and Magneto met for the first time exactly isn’t clear, unless you are going by the X-Men: First Class. And speaking of that film, let’s not forget Emma Frost who looked like she was in her early to mid-thirties but appears as a teenager in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which is a film that took place well after X-Men: First Class. There are also the Summers brothers, the ageless Moria MacTaggard, and much more.

But X-Men: Days Of Future Past could correct some of those issues given that the film does deal with time travel, and as well all know, whatever happens in the past will have a ripple effect on the future.

Hit the jump to read what Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer had to say about the errors in continuity, and his hopes that fans will just forget that they exist.

So where does Gambit fit in the whole X-Men franchise now that the film’s chronology will likely change dramatically due to the events in X-Men: Days Of Future Past? What does Shuler Donner have to say about this? Hit the jump to learn more.
