'X-Men' first look: 'Days of Future Past' posters split the difference

Duality and split personas have been part of superhero cinema for years but usually it’s one actor playing two parts (Superman and Clark Kent, Batman and Bruce Wayne, etc.) not two actors sharing one name in the credits.

That comes across in these intriguing new promotional posters for the 2014 film X-Men: Days of Future Past and it came across this weekend in San Diego at Comic-Con International panel featuring four actors who inhabit two mutants; Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy as a melded Professor X and Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender as a polarized versions of Magneto.

'The Counselor': First look at Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz in Cormac McCarthy thriller -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

It’s never too late to sell your first script. Of course, it helps if you’re Pulitzer Prize-winning prose maestro Cormac McCarthy. While a number of McCarthy’s novels have been successfully translated into films — All the Pretty Horses, No Country for Old Men, The Road — Ridley Scott’s upcoming The Counselor is the first to be based on an original screenplay by the author himself. Scott had previously circled an adaptation of McCarthy’s 1985 masterpiece Blood Meridian, a project that has been killed more times than the characters in its pages.

The director re-teams with Prometheus’ Michael Fassbender, who stars as a lawyer looking to make a little extra money by getting involved in a one-off drug deal. Unsurprisingly, things do not exactly go well. More specifically, they devolve into a nightmarish imbroglio of backstabbing and existential violence. Based on the dialogue-free pages of the screenplay excerpted earlier this month in The New Yorker, the film appears to share the sparse, bloody undertones of 2007’s similarly Southwest-set No Country for Old Men. Brad Pitt, McCarthy alum Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, and Penélope Cruz all round out the impressive cast. Check out these another exclusive image from the film below and ponder all the terrible, vivid ways in which these characters are probably going to die.

Behold Aleksei Sytsevich– a.k.a. The Rhino.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb tweeted this first image of Paul Giamatti as the thick-skinned villain, although it is obviously before the character is fitted with his ramming horn and armor that is surgically grafted to his radiation-enhanced body.

'The Maze Runner': Eerie concept art revealed for best-seller movie adaptation -- EXCLUSIVE

maze-runner.jpg

The massive walls seem simultaneously industrial and ancient. They have the scale of natural rock formations, but there is no such thing as straight lines like these in the wild.

From the creeping vines and empty corridors, the walls also seem to have been totally abandoned … except for a group of young boys who live in the grassy center of this intimidating structure.

As you can tell from the tiny figures in this first concept image from the upcoming film The Maze Runner, not all of the boys are eager to find out what lies beyond the barrier.

Ron Howard: 'Rush' revved up NASA memories, 'Backdraft' fears -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

RUSH-poster.jpg

The year, make, and model were quite different but Rush filmmaker Ron Howard has felt the rumbling power of iconic cars when it comes to engines of cinema and symbolism. It was 40 years ago this summer that one of the ultimate automobile movies, American Graffiti, rumbled into box office history and steered Howard toward television and Happy Days.

Howard is a two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker and with Rush (featured in the first-look poster above with star Chris Hemsworth) and its fact-based tale of Formula One racing rivalry in 1976 he found himself feeling like he was covering some familiar road — but it wasn’t films about wheels on asphalt that hit close to home.

“People ask what has Rush been like and I say from a filmmaking standpoint it’s been kind of like a cross between Apollo 13 and Backdraft,” says Howard, who other films include The DaVinci Code, Splash and A Beautiful Mind. “In the case of Apollo 13, that’s for the complexity and the authenticity and the intent to capture an era and an endeavor that blends technology, action and danger.”

'Lone Ranger' costar Ruth Wilson saddles up for epic possibilities -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Will a western work? That’s the question with Disney’s The Lone Ranger, which arrives this summer as the most expensive cowboy film in history. The trio behind the film — producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Gore Verbinski and star Johnny Depp — are accustomed to genre skepticism, they heard the chorus of doubters when they salvaged the swashbuckler genre from the briny depths with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Jane Eyre (2006) star and Anna Karenina costar Ruth Wilson, who portrays Rebecca Reid in the film (as shown in the exclusive first-look poster above), says that Verbinski is a wild-card filmmaker up to the task of reviving a classic that seems dusty in all the wrong ways.

Robert Pattinson gets Down Under and dirty with Guy Pearce in 'The Rover' -- FIRST LOOK

Australia was founded as a repository for crooks and criminals — a wretched hive of scum and villainy, like the British Empire’s own Mos Eisley. Of course, that was a long time ago and the Australian national demeanor has since shifted from “kill or be killed” to “live and let live,” but David Michôd’s gritty 2010 drama Animal Kingdom chronicled some of the country’s more modern criminal descendents. In his upcoming sophomore effort, The Rover, the director takes things even further. READ FULL STORY

First Look: 'Tyler Perry Presents Peeples' with Kerry Washington -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

After a year and a half, it’s probably time for your parents to meet your boyfriend. But for the Type A Grace Peeples (Kerry Washington), she’d rather delay it just a little longer. In Tyler Perry Presents Peeples (out May 10) Grace tells her boyfriend Wade (Craig Robinson) not to accompany her on her trip home to Sag Harbor for Moby Dick Day – a Peeples family tradition.

“Grace hasn’t told her family a lot about [Wade] at all,” Washington told EW. “She loves Wade very, very much and fears that he won’t accept them and they won’t accept him, and it makes her want to avoid the immersion. If she can just hold it off longer, maybe she’ll figure out how to do it perfectly. Or maybe Wade will suddenly become more successful.”

Wade decides to crash anyway.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Nova' as Marvel's cosmic future -- EXCLUSIVE

Even as Marvel Studios turns toward the stars with the Guardians of the Galaxy, the same is true in the pages (and pixels) of Marvel Comics. On Feb. 27, the inaugural issue of Guardians of the Galaxy, the ongoing comic book series, arrives at stores on the Marvel app to draft off the interest in the 2014 film that was announced last summer, just got a star, and represents the most unexpected Marvel adaptation since Lucasfilm’s Howard the Duck in 1986.

For the moviegoing public that recognizes Captain America and Thor but scratches its collective head when the Guardians are mentioned, the series is a entry point into the scruffy charms and deep-space heroics of the team members: Star-Lord, Gamora, Groot, Rocke, Bug, and Iron Man. Wait, Iron Man? Yes, Brian Michael Bendis and artist Steve McNiven (the tandem behind Avengers Assemble) are bringing Tony Stark into the fun, which raises some interesting possibilities for the film doesn’t it?
