The trailer for Neill Blookamp's latest sci-fi adventure has been released
From the director of the science fiction epics District 9 and Elysium comes Neill Blomkamp's latest trek into an unknown world – CHAPPiE.
CHAPPiE is the first robot who can think and feel for himself
Every child comes into the world full of promise and Chappie is no exception: he is gifted, special and a prodigy. He's also a robot.
Continue reading: Chappie And His Artificial Intelligence Grace New Trailer
Mankind has the potential to build wondrous things, yet it also truly fears what it doesn't understand. After working for the best part of a year on creating a thinking, feeling artificial intelligence, Deon Wilson (Dev Patel) is close to realising that vision. Said vision is CHAPPiE (Sharlto Copley), and when he is finally activated, he serves as a true breakthrough for mankind. CHAPPiE is a capable of thinking and learning, yet he also has the potential for creating destruction. It is this potential that worries Vincent Moore (Hugh Jackman), who sets out with the intent to destroy CHAPPiE before he can cause any damage.

Now in its third instalment, it's clearer than ever that this franchise is based on one joke that has been stretched far beyond the breaking point. And not too cleverly at that. Fortunately, this movie retains much of the deranged idiocy that made the second part rather enjoyable. So it's watchable even if there aren't many new ideas, and even if filmmaker Shawn Levy is far too happy to settle for unnecessary digital effects work where a bit of character comedy would have been much more engaging.
Back on the job as a night watchman in New York, Larry (Ben Stiller) is now orchestrating the museum exhibits when they come to life to provide spectacular shows for visitors who think this is all a special effect. Even his boss (Ricky Gervais) isn't sure what's really going on. But when a glitch in the magical Ancient Egyptian powers causes chaos, Larry learns that he needs to travel to London so he can reunite Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek) with his father (Ben Kingsley), who's on display at the British Museum. Larry's teen son Nick (Skyler Gisondo) comes along, as do his revived pals Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), tiny soldiers Octavius and Jedediah (Steve Coogan and Owen Wilson) and others. But in London, while sneaking around local night guard Tilly (Rebel Wilson), Larry's team awakens a statue of the knight Lancelot (Dan Stevens), who dives into their quest with rather a bit too much gusto.
Until Lancelot turns up, everything about the film feels oddly tired, from the starry cameos to effects work that strains to be clever. Then Stevens injects a badly needed jolt of blue-eyed charisma and warped comical timing that makes the rest of the movie rather good fun. Rebel Wilson's side-plot is also rather amusing, with some wonderfully ridiculous touches. And even the cameos get better, notably a scene on a West End stage that's genuinely inspired silliness. Coogan and Wilson offer some raucous banter to accompany everything that happens, and Stiller kind of hangs on for dear life. But the filmmakers don't really care about these characters; they're just trying to create something visually impressive that's also goofy fun.

Hugh Jackman has posted an image of himself preparing to for his role as Blackbeard in Warner Bros. Peter Pan origin film, 'Pan.' What do we know so far about the project?
Hugh Jackman posted one very exciting image on his Instagram account yesterday! Along with the caption “Blackbeard is born #PAN,” Jackman posted a photo of himself with a shaved head. The hashtag refers to his upcoming film Pan, Warner Bros extremely close-guarded project about Peter Pan.
We really don’t know much so far about Pan, although there’s a few facts that we’ve managed to dig out and get a better idea of what’s going on. There have been a few films regarding author and playwright J.M. Barrie and his character Peter Pan in the past few years, so we’re hoping that the upcoming film will bring something new to the mix. Recent Peter Pan films include the 2002 Disney animation Return to Never Land, the 2003 indie film Neverland, the 2003 live-action Peter Pan starring Jeremy Sumpter and Finding Neverland, the 2004 semi-biographical film starring Johnny Depp as J.M. Barrie.

It's the Tonys, is anyone really surprised that it was a great show?
Not only are the Tonys hilarious, entertaining… glittery, etc. – they’re also pretty democratic. In an over-the top show hosted by Hugh Jackman, top prizes went to A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Beautiful: The Carol King Musical, as well as competitors Robert Schenkkan’s All the Way for best play, to Hedwig and the Angry Inch for best musical revival, and to A Raisin in the Sun for best play revival, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ten years after his first time hoSting, Jackman has gotten even better.
As for Hugh Jackman, who hosted the musical theatre awards for the first time in a decade, the Wolverine star did not disappoint. Jackman gave it his all straight from the opening sequence, which to be fair, is often the centerpiece of the show. That Wolverine training must have come in handy, as Jackman he hopped his way through the theater and backstage, down the aisles and into an elevator before making his way to the main stage for the show's opening.

There's going to be a lot of "bounce" at tonight's Tony Awards, or so host Hugh Jackman is promising on Instagram. But what else do we know about the award ceremony?
The Tony Awards always promises to be a night of drama, stirring songs and as many celebrities as it is physically possible to pack into the Radio City Music Hall, New York. As it's always something of an occasion even for those who haven't tread the Broadway boards, here's what we know so far about tonight's award ceremony:

Wolverine is feeling twin concerns ahead of tonight's ceremony
Old Hugh Jackman has really embraced this whole social media thing, hasn’t he? Ahead of tonight’s Tony Awards, which of course he is hosting, the actor unleashed a promo vid in which he can be seen bouncing around in the show. But there are some nerves creeping in there, too.
Hugh Jackman at the X-Men: Days of Future Past premiere
"There's always a little bit of pressure, but mostly put on myself. It couldn't be a nicer, more welcoming crowd and I can say that from experience, because the first time I came here, I actually had never been on Broadway and I said, 'Guys, I can't do that'," Jackman said.
Continue reading: Hugh Jackman Is Nervous And Excited About Hosting The Tony Awards
The 'X-Men' actor is gearing up to host the Tonys.
Hugh Jackman has stepped up his efforts to promote his upcoming hosting of the Tony Awards by uploading a quirky and funny new video. The intriguing two minute clip shows the Aussie actor waking up in the morning and seemingly being unable to stoo jumping whilst he goes about his daily tasks.
After making a mess of shaving and brushing his teeth, Jackman burns himself on his coffee which he throws all over himself due to his constant bouncing. He hands a fan an illegible scribble for an autograph and heads out of his hotel to bounce down the street.
His bouncing continues even when he makes an appearance on ESPN. "Why is Hugh bouncing?" the video asks. Apparently, all will be revealed at Sunday night's Tony Awards.

It's big, sure, but not that big
Memorial Weekend hasn’t just frustrated Game of Thrones fans, it also saw X-Men: Days of Future Past storm the box office with a global total of $261m – a new record for the franchise internationally. Despite that, though, it looks as though Wolverine et al aren’t even in the top ten when it comes to first weekends.
In fact, it comes in 16th, just ahead of The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King, which grabbed $250m on its first weekend out in the open, and just behind Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – a $272m debut for Paramount. All these numbers are from the excellent Box Office Mojo.
X-Men: Days of Future Past has the most successful first-weekend X-Men movie and the biggest opener of the year so far with its hugely successful debut. What’s more, it looks like Fox’s biggest ever debut, and guess which studio was behind James Cameron’s Avatar?
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past
With an estimated global total of $281.1m, Days of Future Past has already earned back its reported $200m budget. The biggest chunk of that came solely from home base, America, with $90.7m over the Memorial Day weekend – oh, and sorry ‘Game of Thrones’ fans; that means a week’s wait for the next episode.
Continuing to be the most original and resonant of the Marvel superhero franchises, the X-men return in the capable hands of director Bryan Singer, who again stirs plenty of meaty subtext beneath the thrilling action. He also has one of the best casts imaginable, including Oscar winners, cinema royalty, rising stars and matinee idols.
Best of all, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) returns to the fold after two less-than-thrilling solo adventures. He's at the centre of everything here, as Professor X and Magneto (Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen) ask Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to send Wolverine's consciousness back 50 years to 1973. His mission is to prevent Dr Trask (Peter Dinklage) from inventing mutant-hunting robots, because they will go out of control and cause a present-day dystopia in which mutants and anyone who sympathises with them are killed. But Wolverine's biggest task will be to get the then-feuding Professor X and Magneto (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender) to work together to keep renegade mutant Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) from making everything worse.
Thankfully, Simon Kinberg's script doesn't worry too much about the whole time-travel thing, shrugging off dubious logic by keeping the focus on the characters. And there are a lot of people to keep an eye on, which makes the film sometimes feel a bit crowded and leaves some characters barely on-screen at all (blink and you'll miss Anna Paquin's Rogue). The best newbie is Evan Peters' Quicksilver, who gets the film's most entertaining sequence as he races around tweaking an action sequence frame by frame. Other set-pieces are grippingly darker, and some don't quite make sense (why does Magneto feel the need to levitate an entire stadium?).

McAvoy is interested in handing Robert Downey-Junior his "ass"
Both X-Men and The Avengers are Marvel’s biggest movie properties. With 'Days of Future Past' currently in the process of dismantling box offices around the world and putting them back together in the shape of a big X, those Avengers will be performing similar feats next year when 'Age of Ultron' hits town and tries to outgun the $1.5 billion dollar machine that preceded it.
Looks like James McAvoy is ready to fight just about anyone, including himself?
One can only imagine, then, what it would be like if Marvel decided to include the two franchises in one movie. Marvel geeks out there will instantly be able to flag up any continuity and lore-based stumbling blocks with that, while the more business minded fans would cite rights and ownership. But as Hugh Jackman says on SiriusXM Town Hall hosted by Jess Cagle, if someone wants to make it happen, it could probably happen.
Joining the 'X-Men' actor in the star-studded video are the likes of Zac Efron, Emma Stone, Kate Winslet and even Miss Piggy, plus many more.
A lucky bride got the surprise of a lifetime at her wedding ceremony.
Hollywood stars such as Hugh Jackman, Cameron Diaz, Zac Efron and Kate Winslet, were asked by her new husband, Sky News reporter Joe Michalczuk, to offer a few words about tying the knot, which he played at their wedding reception.
The first star in the clip is Hollywoodo hunk Zac Efron, who appears on screen and gives the shocked bride a wink and a kiss, Emma Stone follows and says "Congratulations Jenny!"
The 45 year-old actor is expecting to have more cancerous skin cells in the future: "I'll have at least one more but probably many more."
The 45 year-old actor found basal-cell carcinomas on his nose for the second time, and subsequently got the cancerous cells removed.
However, Jackman realizes that there is a likely chance the disease could return. While sporting a small bandage on the area the skin was removed, the Australian star spoke at a press conference in Beijing to promote his most recent movie, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.'

The 45 year-old actor has expressed interest in shooting 'Wolverine' films back-to-back due to the gruelling workout routines: "It's much easier because it's tough to get there, physically, but once you're there, it's easier to maintain it."
Age does not slow down Hugh Jackman.
Just because the Australian actor is nearly hitting the half century mark, this does not mean he is taking a backseat to physical roles that require a huge amount of preparation.
Jackson has reportedly signed onto to reprise the role of Wolverine in three more films, two more spin-off flicks and 'X-Men: Apocalypse.'

Hugh Jackman’s second scare with skin cancer has prompted him to once again warn his fans of the importance of wearing sun screen.
Hugh Jackman has warned his fans about the dangers of the sun and of not wearing sunscreen. The actor uploaded a picture on to Instagram of himself with his nose in a bandage. He added the caption “Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!”
Hugh Jackman attended the X-Men premiere with a bandaged nose.
The Wolverine actor received treatment for the same condition last year but the cells were also removed. Jackman warned his fans “don’t be foolish like me” urging them to “wear sunscreen.”
Following his treatment for basal cell carcinoma, the 45 year-old actor took to social media to warn people about the risks of too much exposure to sunlight.

Hugh Jackman was just as disappointed with "The Wolverine" as the fans were.
Poor Wolverine – not only is Marvel’s mot infamous mutant getting killed off in the comic books, now it looks like Hugh Jackman is done with him as well. Apparently the Aussie actor is almost finished playing his iconic steel-clawed character. We’re due to see Logan aka Wolverine in at least one more film – the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. After that, the character may or may not reappear in another solo film from James Mangold, the helmer behind last year’s The Wolverine. The 2013 movie didn’t do too well in terms of reviews, but with just under $415 million in worldwide profits, there’s enough incentive for 20th Century Fox to get behind a sequel.
It's almost the end of the line for our tortured hero.
Jackman on the other hand, seems to be at the end of his rope. “I’m excited to see what we can come up with, but I haven’t signed on signed on,” the actor told SFX Magazine. “I’m genuinely at that point where unless it’s better than the last one I’m not going to do it.”

The mutants of the world are quickly dwindling in their numbers, tearing each other apart until they are almost wiped out. Two of the wisest X-Men of the universe, Charles Xavier and Magneto, must now join forces despite their hostile relationship to go back in time and fix the world so that their kind can survive the horrors of their ravaged future. The duo enlist Wolverine to help them on their mission; a mutant whose healing powers make him the only one strong enough to travel in time. He must find the impulsive fools that are Xavier and Magneto as much younger mutants and warn them of what their actions will do for their future, while on the way attempt to save the life of an important political figure. Will the X-Men succeed in changing their future? Or are there some things in the past that can never be changed?

A musical about the life of magician Harry Houdini is being made, but not with Jackman
Hugh Jackman was in line to front the upcoming Broadway show dedicated to the life of famed magician Harry Houdini, at least that was the case until he dropped out of the project earlier this week. The Tony-winning, Oscar-nominated actor was due to top the bill for the upcoming stage musical, titled Houdini, with the actor citing a filming busy schedule as the reason behind his decision to drop out of the project.
Jackman won a Tony Award in 2004 for his role in The Boy From Oz
"I have greatly enjoyed the collaborative process on Houdini,” the actor said in a statement (via Entertainment Weekly). “Ultimately, though, I wasn’t able to commit to the time this role will require. I have tremendous respect and admiration for the creative team and I wish everyone the best. I know they’re well on their way to making something extraordinary.”

According to the actor, his wife Deborra-Lee Furness noticed the spot on Jackman and insisted that he have it checked out. Her weariness proved to be potentially life-saving for the Wolverine star, as his check up revealed that the growth was cancerous. It was a close call for the Aussie actor, who joins the likes of Eric Dane, Bruce Jenner, Ewan McGregor and Anderson Cooper, who have all shared their own brushes with cancer in the past.

With the release of Thor: The Dark World in the U.S. this week, we thought we'd take a look back into Marvel's movie history and put together a list of its Top 10 finest moments. Ok so a couple of the movies weren't actually made by the studio, but all feature characters from the Marvel comics.
The Thor sequel pulled in $8.7 million over its debut weekend in the UK - more than four times the amount that it's nearest rival grossed - and with Ender's Game the vulnerable reigning champion of the stateside box-office, things are looking good for Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman this weekend.

The People's Choice Awards this year welcome back the usual suspects.
It’s that time of the year again – time for the most important awards of the season, the People’s Choice Awards (wink, wink, nudge, nudge.) This year the favorites are easy to pick out from the crowd. The award show will be held in January and today was the day that the nominees were finally announced.
The super successful Katy Perry is the favorite in several musical categories.
In the world of TV, Glee is the favorite, with eight nominations, proving that nothing can keep this show down. That may or may not be a good thing. Meanwhile, Katy Perry seems to be the people’s favorite when it comes to music. The Roar singer has nabbed five nods. Coincidentally, that’s also Sandra Bullock’s number. The Gravity actress heads up the movie division.

In a post-apocalyptic world where mutants are now scarce, Charles Xavier must convince Wolverine to travel back in time to warn Xavier's younger self about their impending disaster-struck world. Magneto is also united with his fellow mutants, as now all their kind must stick together if they want to survive a world that they are no longer welcome in. Previously, the battle between humankind and X-Men caused the attempted assassination of an important political figure, something that Wolverine must control as he goes back to instil some knowledge into the much more reckless X-Men of the 1980s.
