X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men: Days of Future Past: Lest we forget that Hugh Jackman will make an appearance as the Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past next year, director Bryan Singer teasingly tweeted a photo of the actor as he showed up on set for a costume fitting. Of course, Jackman will be starring in his very own movie, coincidentally titled The Wolverine, and set for release on July 26. [Bryan Singer's Twitter via Collider]

Fantastic Four: Let the rumors fly! Allison Williams, the daughter of NBC News anchor Brian Williams and a costar on Lena Dunham's divisive HBO show Girls, is now rumored to be in the mix to play Sue Storm in the upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four. She is also in talks to play the lead role in Rosaline, a long-in-development romantic comedy that retells Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet from the point of view of Romeo's ex-girlfriend. [Deadline]

Cinderella: If you're a fan of the British TV show Downton Abbey, then you might recognize Lily James from her role as Lady Rose, a spirited young relative who shook up the household with her delightful flapper-style antics. Perhaps she'll shake up things again as the next Cinderella; she's been cast in the lead role for Disney's upcoming new version of the classic, under the direction of Kenneth Branagh. She joins Cate Blanchett, who will play her evil stepmother. [Los Angeles Times]

Aftershock Trailer: Horror maven Eli Roth cowrote and stars in Aftershock, directed by Nicolás López. Set in Chile, the movie begins as a fantasy sex vacation before quickly morphing into a nightmarish vision after an earthquake strikes. The red-band (NSFW) trailer is filled with profanity, sexual imagery, extreme violence and splattering blood. Aftershock hits theaters on May 10. [IGN]
