Anna Paquin’s scenes as Rogue that were cut from “X-Men: Days of Future Past” will be added back to the film and re-released as the “Rogue Cut” next summer on homevideo platforms.
The extended version of “Days of Future Past” will become available in the first half of 2015, most likely during the summer, according to the film’s writer and producer Simon Kinberg, who made the announcement Thursday from Stage 21, where scenes for “X-Men: First Class” were filmed on the Twentieth Century Fox studio lot. He was back on the lot to promote the theatrical version of the movie, available now on digital and on Oct. 14 on DVD and Blu-ray.
More than 10 minutes of extra footage will be added to the “Rogue Cut,” which in addition to Paquin’s cut scenes, will also include other sequences involving other characters, as well. Paquin’s scenes didn’t make the final cut because the film was “full of plots and subplots.” Her storyline as Rogue just “didn’t fit” with the final film, which Kinberg said was always designed to revolve around Charles Xavier, played by James McAvoy.

Will you wait until next summer to buy the Rogue edition, or will you be buying both?
The film hits theatres on February 6, 2015.
Do you think the 6-month delay was worth it?

Though common sense dictates that "once you put something on the Internet, it's there forever," the same apparently goes for the last remnants of the physically printed word as well. As is widely known, Vampire Weekend's frontman Ezra Koenig was something of a creative writer during his time at Columbia University. And as Pitchfork points out, he also a contributed to the college's literary magazine, Quarto. A recently unearthed Koenig short story can be read below, sporting themes of adolescence, transcendance, and maturation in New York City — not entirely unlike much of his band's earliest work.
The story, "Off the Grid," is only a page and a half long, and while it's a touch melodramatic, Koenig's flair for the intricacies of storytelling are there. Check out the musician's Quarto biography and full short story below.
University of Baltimore to Offer Course on the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Ever wished you could spend your day watching Marvel movies instead of studying? Well, now you may be able to do both.
The University of Baltimore is offering a course on the popular film series, aiming to give students a better understanding of the film's characters and the superhero world they inhabit.
The course - believed to be a US first - is titled 'Media Genres: Media Marvels' and will be open to students at the university from spring 2015.
Course teacher Arnold T Blumberg explained that the Marvel series offers "profound statements about the nature of heroism" and "our willingness to trade freedom for security".
He added: "Every generation has a modern media mythology that serves as a framework for entertaining as well as educating about ethics, morality, issues of race, gender, class, and so on.
"For the past several years, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings have served in that role for tens of millions. When I was younger, it was the first Star Wars series.
"[Now with Marvel] we have a generation coming of age with these characters and this completely mapped-out universe. It could be argued that it's never been done better.
"But no matter what your age, there is always a fantasy/sci-fi/superhero realm that helps you to explore your place in the world, your identity, and your ideals. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is that realm for this generation."
The course will also examine the critical and commercial response to Guardians of the Galaxy, which Blumberg said has proved that audiences are now completely willing to accept "talking trees and raccoons" as part of the Marvel universe.
Agent Carter Gains Boardwalk Empire Actor Shea Whigham
The fall television season may have just officially begun, with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. among the first series out the gate, but our eyes and attention are set on another Marvel show heading our way: Agent Carter. Much like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter will tell the human side of the fantastical and super-powered Marvel Cinematic Universe, but is set in the past, with Hayley Atwell front and center. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take that over Agent Coulson and his band of HYDRA-weary agents any day.
Atwell reprises her role of the titular Agent Peggy Carter, who’s appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger, her own eponymous Marvel One-Shot short film, this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Tuesday’s season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The series picks up after the events of The First Avenger, with Carter working as an administrator for the Strategic Scientific Reserve and going on secret and dangerous missions for her pal Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper).
As Agent Carter‘s winter premiere draws near, the show is picking up speed and gaining cast members. Just last week Cloud Atlas and Those Who Kill actor James D’Arcy signed on as Edwin Jarvis, Howard Stark’s butler and the man whom Tony later based his artificial intelligence on. Now, we have word that Boardwalk Empire and True Detective alum Shea Whigham is on board as well.
Whigham will serve as the series’ co-lead, according to Deadline. He’ll play the “tough but fair-minded” SSR chief Roger Dooley, who oversees Carter and her fellow agents, Thompson (One Tree Hill’s Chad Michael Murray) and Sousa (Dollhouse’s Enver Gjokaj).
Adding an actor like Whigham is a huge win for Marvel, as he always adds a great deal of depth to any role he’s given. My guess is he’ll get plenty of scene-chewing material to work with in Agent Carter, and compliment Atwell as co-lead quite nicely.
Russo Brothers tease potential ‘Captain America 3′ titles, overarching themes
Much news has been made lately about the film’s subtitle and how it’s going to blow people’s minds, so I began the interview by acknowledging that many people have probably already asked them about it. I promised them that my interview would be different. That I cared more about them than the title of the third Cap adventure.
Then I coughed out the words “Civil War.”
They stared at me and nobody in the room made any noise. The jig was up. They could tell I was trying to pull one over on them.
For the uninitiated, Civil War is perhaps one of the most famous Marvel events in history. In short, it deals with the emergence of a Superhuman Registration Act, a piece of legislation that divides the Avengers team. The likes of Tony Stark and Peter Parker believe the legislation can do some good, whereas our good ol’ Cap believes that the feds shouldn’t hold the keys to the Avengers’ secret identities. It’s a tragic story that many assumed Marvel was saving for Avengers 3, but with Thanos lurking on the horizon it’s seeming more and more unlikely.
Besides, it’s a story best left to the newly-proven post-modern Marvel masters: the Russo Brothers. However, they recently mentioned that Captain America: Civil War is unlikely since many of the key players in the story are missing from the Marvel Studios stable.
In any case, their silence said enough for me. I commended them on their training, and admired what kind of Winter Soldier-esque tortures awaited them should they actually drop anything huge on accident. They laughed and threw another potential title into the mix.
“Had you said Fallen Son…” hinted Joe Russo.
We don’t want to spoil Civil War for anyone, so if you’re planning on reading it, please browse away from this page now, but Fallen Son takes place immediately after Civil War and explores how the other characters of the Marvel universe would react to Steve Roger’s death.
It’s an emotional ride, and one that we may never see on screen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unless the Russo brothers actually want to do it.
“It’s Fallen Son and we kill him on page 20. It’s crazy, but we’re doing that,” said Joe.
“Actually he’s dead before the movie starts,” added Anthony.
It’s at this point I realize that they’re messing with me. We all laugh, but on the inside I’m crossing “Fallen Son” and “Civil War” off of my list of potential Cap 3 plots.
Although they couldn’t slip me the title, they were able to give me an overarching idea of what the film would be about.
“We’ve used this formula throughout our careers, taking very incongruous elements and smashing them into each other,” said Joe Russo.
Okay, but that really makes me feel like it’s Civil War. Then again, much of what made The Winter Soldier so damned interesting was the sharp contrast between Cap and S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as Cap and Black Widow’s differing morality structures.
Although plenty will be changing between now and Captain America 3 (we have exactly one Age of Ultron between now and then), the Russos admit that there’s much about the third Cap film that will be the same, and even more that will be different.
“We’re not gonna get away from some of that tone, we like a very grounded approach to the character,” said Joe. “We like long lenses. We like handheld camera work. That stuff’s not going away. But what can we bring that’s fresh to the table from an execution standpoint, from a relationship standpoint, and from a storytelling standpoint? You don’t want them to say, ‘I saw this movie two years ago and it was called The Winter Soldier,’” explained Joe.
Although The Winter Soldier was their dream Marvel experience (both of them claim Ed Brubaker’s Winter Soldier run as their favorite Cap comic), they want to explore what’s different with Captain America 3, as well as what they can do to surprise their viewers.
“Moving into Cap 3, we have the advantage of having this brand that continues to build loyalty and win fans,” said Anthony. “It gives you license to take them places. It’s a very valuable thing as far as where we can take the stories.”

Teen Wolf's Holland Roden proves she's nothing short of a showstopper in BCBGeneration's fall collection.
idek. ontd, what are your favorite fall fashion looks?
Actor and documentary filmmaker Alex Winter, star of the cult classic Bill and Ted movies, has let slip some new details about the next film in that franchise, including that it will feature multiple versions of Bill S. Preston, Esq., and Ted "Theodore" Logan.
It's not clear whether he means various ages (both he and co-star Keanu Reeves have aged well enough to mostly pull it off) or different realities (time travel futures, after all...), but it's a bit of an elaboration on what we already knew.
Here's they key quote from an interview with Yahoo! Movies:
“[Bill and Ted] will be 40-something and it’s all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up,” Winter tells us. “It’s really sweet and really f---ing funny.
“But it’s a Bill & Ted movie, that’s what it is. It’s for the fans of Bill & Ted. It fits very neatly in the [series]. It’s not going to feel like a reboot. The conceit is really funny: what if you’re middle-aged, haven’t really grown up and you’re supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven’t?”
“There’s many versions of ourselves in this movie,” he continues. “[It’s] answering the question: ‘What happened to these guys?’ They’re supposed to have done all this stuff, they weren’t the brightest bulbs on the tree, what happened 20 years later? To answer that question in a comedic way felt rich with possibility.”
The film isn't going into production any time soon, though; Winter, in fact, laments that word of the sequel even got out, since it means the process has to take place while fans are expecting the movie sooner than later. With the collapse of Orion Pictures, the film's rights situation is always tricky to navigate -- as is finding funding for a sci-fi-flavored sequel to a 20-year-old franchise that grossed a combined $80 million over two movies at the domestic box office.
Varun Dhawan and Deepika Padukone have been roped in for the remake of the popular Hollywood film and an adaptation of one of the international bestsellers, ‘The Fault In Our Stars’. Though primarily it’s a love story, the Hindi remake is said to have a twist.
For the Bollywood remake, it is being said that the actors will be playing teenagers. The film is to be produced by Fox Star Studios in association with Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films and is directed by Homi Adajania. It is slated to go on floor in March 2015. Currently, Varun Dhawan is busy wrapping up the Remo D’Souza directorial ABCD 2 along with Shraddha Kapoor and Sriram Raghavan’s Badlapur starring Yami Gautam and Huma Qureshi. Deepika Padukone, on the other hand, is busy with the promotions of her upcoming film Happy New Year. She also has to complete the shoot schedule of Tamasha directed by Imtiaz Ali and Shoojit Sircar’s Piku with Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan. She will also be seen with Ranveer Singh in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial Bajirao Mastani.

I have nothing nice to say about this casting decision so let's appreciate Varun's beauty instead
Lindsay Lohan Nails Second West End Performance, Proves Theatre Shouldn't Be Judged On Opening Night
Her otherwise praised performance in the opening night of Speed-The-Plow may have been widely overshadowed by the fact she fluffed a few lines, but Lindsay Lohan aced her second night on the West End according to audience members on Twitter.
While the play itself continues to divide, the former Mean Girls star's Karen seemingly went off without a hitch on Thursday night (September 25), with no sign of the blatant line troubles that melodramatically hit headlines around the world the night before.
Mark Howson wrote: "A great @lindsaylohan in #speedtheplow tonight. No cues or flubbed lines that I saw. Theatre should never be reviewed on opening night." Preach! Vampire Soup, meanwhile, tweeted: "She's here. She's acting. She knows her lines. Ha! YOU WERE WRONG #SpeedThePlow".
Headlines on various media outlets were somewhat unfair to the actress following opening night; proving that there's a reason why the vast majority of other major professional shows are granted a few nights of Previews before the Press Night signals the arrival of official reviews. TMZ went with a hideous "Lindsay Lohan was a DISASTER in debut" headline, while the Daily Beast claimed "London Laughs at Lindsay Lohan".
Something is going on with People magazine's Twitter tonight and it's not pretty.
First during Scandal, one of our readers tipped us off to a tweet sent that referenced Kerry Washington's hair on the show:
Olivia's back to straight hair so you KNOW she means business. #Scandal
— People magazine (@peoplemag) September 26, 2014
Because you can't mean serious business with natural hair? They deleted it quickly, but the Internet is like Eye of Sauron. It sees everything.
So they realized they had tweeted something that many of their followers and fans told them was offensive. Normally you expect a carefully worded apology from a public relations executive doing damage control. (They usually start with "we deeply regret" and contain bullshit like"if we offended anyone, we are sorry.") But that's not what happened. They kept on live-tweeting the show and moved right into live-tweeting How To Get Away With Murder, starring Viola Davis.
Then we got this gem.
For those who don't know, the quote references Davis' Oscar-nominated role as Aibileen Clark, a maid in The Help. The reaction on Twitter was immediate, as many followers expressed not their outrage—because I don't think it's fair to portray this as just blind outrage—but their disappointment that this what a media company chooses to highlight.
For those who want to brush this off as just some intern who'll probably get fired tomorrow, don't forget that People magazine was recently sued for racial discrimination by a former editor, according to the Huffington Post:
Tatsha Robertson, reportedly the only black senior editor the magazine ever had, alleges her former boss left her out of meetings, dismissed pitches for stories centered on black victims, and verbally dissed her as well, once telling her, "You need to talk like everyone else here. You're not at Essence anymore."
The suit also has pointed accusations about People's editorial policy. In legal papers the magazine is described as "a discriminatory organization run entirely by white people who intentionally focus the magazine on stories involving white people and white celebrities."
So far, People magazine has had no comments about the deleted tweets. We will update if they do.
