Movie Morsels: Watch a Behind-the-Scenes X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Featurette on Quicksilver’s Big Scene

Is everyone enjoying their Memorial Day Weekend? If not, then hopefully today’s Movie Morsels will make it a little bit brighter. We’ve got a tasty new featurette on what, for many, has been the highlight of this weekend’s X-Men: Apocalypse — Quicksilver’s big hero moment! Plus, the latest photos from Star Trek Beyond, a first look at Dwayne Johnson in Fast 8, and more!

X-Men: Apocalypse

While many superhero fans may prefer the Marvel Cinematic Universe to Fox’s X-Men franchise, there’s one thing almost everyone must admit the X-Men films have given us that’s superior to the MCU equivalent: Quicksilver. The silver-haired speedster stole the show when he made his big-screen debut in X-Men: Days of Future Past. And though the latest merry mutant outing, this weekend’s X-Men: Apocalypse, has drawn considerably less enthusiastic review than its predecessor, many are arguing that Evan Peters’ character is once more the highlight. Now Fox has released a new featurette that takes us behind-the-scenes of the film’s big Quicksilver scene, as directed by Bryan Singer…

Fast 8

We’ve been hearing quite a bit lately from Vin Diesel on the next chapter in the Fast and Furious saga. But now we have our first look at Dwayne Johnson in the film, and a teasing description of where his character Hobbs is heading when he returns in Fast 8. I’m already digging his new railroad spike goatee…

EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: #HOBBS #F8 When you strip a man of all he has. All that’s important to him. You force him to return to his roots.. and sometimes that’s a very dangerous and twisted place. If I was going to return for another FAST & FURIOUS I wanted to come in and disrupt the franchise in a cool way that got fans fired up and their blood pumping to see a new version of Hobbs and his “Daddy’s gotta go to work” mentality and set the table in a cool way for where the character goes in the future. Maybe it’s a spinoff movie. Maybe it’s more #FF movies. Or hell maybe Hobbs just gets on his motorcycle and rides off into the sunset never to be seen again. Either way, I’ve had a solid first week of shooting, good to be back with the ohana, good to work again w/ my bud and director F. Gary Gray and our home studio of UNIVERSAL, as always have been the best partners to me and my #SevenBucksProds team. Most importantly… you guys around the world will really dig this new version of the role, ’cause as we always say, disrupters dent the universe. #Hobbs #TwistedRoots #1Disrupter #1Savage #F8
