Jennifer Lawrence already had more screen time in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” than in the franchise’s previous installment and it looks like the trend will continue with the upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse.”
Simon Kinberg, who returns to co-write and co-produce the latest movie in the mega-successful franchise, told Collider that the film will more closely explore the relationship between Lawrence’s blue mutant Mystique and Nicholas Hoult’s Beast. It will also focus on the impact that Charles Xavier (Professor X) and Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto) have each had on Mystique, as well as the friendship between Charles and Erik.
Although it doesn’t rule them out of future movies, Kinberg said that “Apocalypse” will close the trilogy for the aforementioned “First Class” characters.
“The relationship between Beast and Mystique is a really interesting one that we didn’t have a lot of time to explore in ‘Days of Future Past’ so we’ll have an opportunity to do more of that in ‘Apocalypse,’” Kinberg said.
Kinberg didn’t disclose whether the film would single out a single character, as the previous two have, but did say that “Apocalypse” examines how both Erik and Charles has impacted Mystique.
“Part of what’s really interesting about Mystique’s character is that she is, in some ways, the child of both Erik and Charles,” he told the site. “She grew up with Charles and then she sort of became a woman with Erik, so her being the cross-pollination, if you will, of those two philosophies and those two men is something we can explore in the movie, too.”
Bryan Singer will return to direct “X-Men: Apocalypse,” which hits theaters on May 18, 2016. Meanwhile, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 14.

New York Fashion Week has just ended, and already we’re prepping for one of fashion’s biggest nights next year: the 2015 Met Gala. The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced Friday the new theme for the Costume Institute’s Exhibition, “Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film and Fashion.”
As usual, the annual fashion ball will include some of Hollywood’s biggest names as co-chairs (Sarah Jessica Parker and Bradley Cooper co-chaired this year), with Jennifer Lawrence, Marissa Mayer, Wendi Murdoch, Gong Li and, of course, Anna Wintour, set to co-host the stylish extravaganza.
The exhibit, which will open May 7, 2015, through Aug. 16, 2015, will work with the museum’s Department of Asian Art, which celebrates its 100th anniversary next year.
While it’s always exciting to see the extravagant designs advance down the carpet, we’re looking forward to the wild antics Lawrence is likely to pull with the evening’s guest. Don’t think we forgot about that time you photobombed SJP, J. Law.
