'X-Men': Could Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique get the next spin-off film?

20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past  doesn’t open until May 23, but that hasn’t stopped its producers from considering spin-off films (Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is the only character so far to step out on his own), especially given the success that Marvel has had with The Avengers and its roster (Captain America, Thor, Iron Man). “There was a regime [at the studio] that didn’t see the worth in [spin-offs], and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it, and we’re going to do right by it,” says producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who’s produced all of the X-Men films. “I’d like to do Gambit. I’d like to do Deadpool. We’ll see. There’s a lot of really great characters.” READ FULL STORY

'Afflicted': Check out a clip from the new found footage vampire movie -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

AFFLICTED.jpg

Anyone who knows vampires only as the Twilight franchise’s sparkly-skinned specimens will get a rude shock if they watch the new found footage horror film Afflicted, which debuts to theaters and on VOD today.

“The thing we found exciting was the idea of a vampire film that was completely divorced of sexuality, romanticism, and melodrama,” says Clif Prowse, who directed the movie with his childhood friend and fellow Canadian Derek Lee. “What would it actually be like if you were biologically compelled to eat human blood and to kill people? What would that do to you emotionally? It seemed to us it would be a much darker, grittier psychological tale than, ‘I’m going to be young and hot forever, feel sorry for me.'”

Among the countless objects he supplied for this Friday’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Bobbitt crafted 46 different shields of various levels of flexibility and style, constantly refreshing and repainting those that were damaged in stunts or fight scenes throughout the three-month production. He has previously worked on all three Iron Man films, Thor, and is currently assembling gear for Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man.

Angelina Jolie Q&A: Bringing malevolent 'Maleficent' to life, doing some good in the world -- and those '50 Shades' rumors

Beware the unloved.

If there is a lesson to be learned about the cruelest among us, it might be that one. Most villains, when you find them in real life, are born from pain, and pour it back on the world to keep from drowning in it. A few are heartless sociopaths who derive their power from persecution, and care about nothing else in the world but their own force of will.

And some are just mad they didn’t get a party invitation.

Consider Disney’s Maleficent in this latter category. Unhinged, and irrational. Or at least, she was.

For all her sophisticated grace and simmering seductiveness, for all the bombastic magic she wields at her razor fingertips, the thing that really grinds her horns, both in the Brothers Grimm folk tale and in 1959’s animated Sleeping Beauty, is not being welcome at the christening of the king’s newborn daughter, Princess Aurora. But she shows up anyway, pet crow in tow, mad enough to curse a baby. READ FULL STORY
