Submergence, which Erin Dignam adapted from J.M. Ledgard’s novel, finds two lovers, separated by thousands of miles as they both face life-or-death situations. James McAvoy is James Moore, a British intelligence agent who has fallen afoul of jihadist fighters in Somalia. As he endures his captivity, his thoughts drift to marine bio-mathematician Danielle Flinders (Alicia Vikander), the women he fell for after they met the previous Christmas at a swanky, remote retreat. She, meanwhile, is thinking of him as her submersible explores the depths of the ocean floor, and gets into its own danger in the murky waters.
The movie will be playing at Glasgow festival next 23 and 24 of February, and its out in USA on April 13. Watch the official trailer below:
Empire has revealed some new images in its latest issue for the next instalment in the X-Men movie franchise, X-Men: Dark Phoenix. One of the images features Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), and Jessica Chastain in her unrevealed role. Check it:
After the X-Men team is dispatched to space for a rescue mission, a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean – the Phoenix.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set for release on November 2nd, 2018. Simon Kinberg is directing a cast that includes franchise veterans Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor X), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) and Evan Peters (Quicksilver) alongside new additions Jessica Chastain and Lamar Johnson.
Dark Phoenix is, well, dark as evidenced by this photo of Charles (James McAvoy), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Storm (Alexandra Shipp) mourning something or somebody. “I would call Dark Phoenix a drama,” says Lawrence. “We have really great action scenes and we go to space like within the first five minutes of the movie. So it’s definitely exciting but emotionally all these characters are taking the biggest, most extreme dives than they have in the whole series.”
Dark Phoenix will arrive in theaters on Nov. 2, 2018. Come back tomorrow for scans of the EW issue!
M. Night Shyamalan returned in a big way earlier this year with his movie SPLIT, which earned some of the best reviews of his career, and made $278 million worldwide (off a $9 million budget). A huge final scene revealed this was not a normal horror flick and was indeed the long-awaited sequel to his film UNBREAKABLE. He announced he was getting to work on the final entry, GLASS, and he has now taken to Twitter the movie has officially wrapped production.
The tweet came on Monday night as Shyamalan thanked the cast and crew, as well as the city of Philadelphia where the movie was shot.
Just wrapped #Glass!! Much love to my cast & crew. Thank you for helping me tell this special story. And love to Philly for all the support!
The sequel will see McAvoy’s Kevin, a man with multiple personalities, crossing paths with Bruce Willis’ David Dunn, who was the subject of Shyamalan’s UNBREAKABLE, the director’s take on a superhero movie. The two will go toe-to-toe as Dunn hunts Kevin down, all while Samuel L. Jackson’s Elijah Price, a.k.a. Mr. Glass, who was also in UNBREAKABLE, acts as an orchestrator and knows secrets about the two men. Taylor-Joy will reprise her role as Casey Cooke from SPLIT, and actress Sarah Paulson was added to the cast some months ago.
GLASS is set to hit theaters January 18, 2019.

A Russian trailer for Submergence has surfaced earlier today, which is exciting and not so much at the same time (due language barriers!). The trailer is quite long-running (over 2 minutes) and has plenty of James and Alicia Vikander scenes!
Adapted from the novel by JM Ledgard, it focuses on two people brought together by a chance encounter. James (James McAvoy) is a Scottish spy about to embark on a dangerous mission in Somalia. Danny (Alicia Vikander) is a professor and a bio-mathematician about to head to the bottom of the ocean to explore what lifeforms might exist. They find each other at a plush hotel in France, both taking a chance to relax before embarking on their high-risk missions. There’s an instant frisson and in the space of a few days, they fall in love, eager to see more of each other once they return. But when James is kidnapped by jihadists, Danny is left waiting for a text message that might never come, unaware of his predicament as she prepares for her deep dive.
Our gallery was updated with promotional images and screen captures of the hit movie Atomic Blonde starring Charlize Theron, who plays Lorraine Broughton, a top-level spy for MI6, who is dispatched to Berlin to take down a ruthless espionage ring that has just killed an undercover agent for reasons unknown.

The movie was released on digital platforms (iTunes and Amazon Video) last October 24 and was just released on DVD and Blu-Ray.
