Based on John Niven's best-selling novel, Kill Your Friends is a jet-black comedy about a music executive at the height of the Britpop era who will stop at nothing to further his career. Britpop bands Blur, Oasis, Radiohead rule the airwaves and Cool Britannia is in full swing. 27-year-old hit chasing A&R man Steven Stelfox (Nicholas Hoult) is slashing and burning his way through the music business, a world where careers are made and broken by chance and the fickle tastes of the general public.
In an industry of dream-makers, Stelfox refuses to buy into the 'dream' - and despises anyone that does. Fuelled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox searches for his next hit record amid a relentless orgy of self-gratification. Created by an industry that demands success at any price, Stelfox takes the concept of 'killer tunes' to a murderous new level in a desperate attempt to salvage his career. Balanced against the backdrop of the music business and its characters, Stelfox is the ultimate anti-hero: chronically sexist, racist, and everything else-ist.Read More
Bryan Singer is set to return for X-Men: Apocalypse, which is confirmed to take place in the 80s. While no other story details have been released, it has long been confirmed that the movie will serve as the end of a trilogy which began with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. While it is pretty clear that both Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult will return for X-Men: Apocalypse, 20th Century Fox has not yet confirmed the main cast for the movie.
Those who have been confirmed are mostly new actors, which include Oscar Isaac as the title villain, Alexandra Shipp as Young Storm, Sophie Turner as Young Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as young Scott Summer (aka Cyclops) and Kodi Smit-McPhee as young Nightcrawler. Rose Byrne, who last appeared in X-Men: First Class, will reprise her role as ex-CIA agent Moira MacTaggert. It remains to be seen if these newest additions to the cast will appear in future installments of the franchise, but that is very likely. What do you think about this being Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence's final X-Men movie? Is it too soon to see them go?Read More
While future X-Men movies won't solely focus on this current core group of characters, it isn't unusual for the series to bring in past actors for cameos. X-Men: Apocalypse is only one of three franchise sequels opening in 2016, with Deadpool and Gambit also on the way. And Wolverine 3 will hit in 2017. Its unlikely that Nicholas Hoult will be making an appearance as Beast in any of these three films. Since Patrick Stewart is expected to show up as old Professor Xavier in Wolverine 3, its possible that Kelsey Grammer could reprise his role as old Beast as well, as he did for X-Men: Days of Future Past. What do you think? Do you want more Nicholas Hoult as Beast? Or should the character stay silent for awhile?
X-Men: Apocalypse comes to theaters May 27th, 2016.Read More

Guy Pearce has signed on to join Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in the sci-fi drama Equals, which was one of the hot projects being shopped to international buyers by Mr. Smith at Cannes last month. We first reported on the project back in October, when Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult signed on to star.
The story, written by Nathan Parker (Moon), is set in a world where all emotions have been eradicated, with a new breed of humans being created called Equals. A disease begins to spread which reactivates human emotions, with the infected being sent away, never to be seen again. The story centers on Silas (Nicholas Hoult), who becomes an outcast when he is infected, until he meets a young woman named Nia (Kristen Stewart), who has the rare ability to mask her emotions. No details were given for Guy Pearce's role.Read More
Director Bryan Singer took to his Twitter account earlier today to reveal a new behind-the-scenes photo from X-Men: Days of Future Past. The image features Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy, in non-Beast mode, along with an array of television sets that the filmmaker refers to as "1973 TIVO." Fans still have just over three months until this superhero sequel hits theaters, so be sure to check back often for more photos and videos before the May 23 release.

Magneto's (Michael Fassbender) 1970s super villain costume is seen in a new photo for X-Men: Days of Future Past, revealing a look that is inline with the Marvel comic books.
