News Brief: Dune: The Sisterhood, Oblivion Song’s Film Adaptation, X-Men: Dark Phoenix’s Original Ending, and More

In brief, new movie news and television show news has broken. Below you will find a brief rundown on all that news and their most significant segments, distilled down to the most salient information.

Movie News

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Original Ending Revealed

Ty Sheridan recently revealed the original ending to X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The final battle in the third act of X-Men: Dark Phoenix (I have not seen the film) was supposed to take place at the United Nations in New York City.

“It’s really hard for me to remember what the ending of this movie is. [laughs] Originally, it was scripted that Charles and Scott go to the U.N. because — man, I’m totally going to mess this up — they go to the U.N. because they’re going to try to tell the President that, ‘Hey, we’re under attack by aliens and, they’ve now captured Jean Grey.’ Or, you know, whatever it is that we’re going to tell him.

“And then Jean comes down in the front of the U.N., and causes… there is this huge battle between the guards at the U.N. and Jean Grey, and all the guards turn out to be Skrulls. And then Jean and Scott are — Scott is fighting Skrulls in the fountain. He gets thrown into the fountain in front of the U.N. And then Jean comes down and basically fights all of the Skrulls off, and then blasts back off into space. [She] basically says goodbye to Scott and Charles. And then it’s all over, I guess.”

“We shot that [sequence] like two or three times, actually. … But I mean, it’s part of the process, man. You never know. Something could read so great on the page, and then the second you put it on a screen in front of someone, it becomes something else. It’s really hard to figure out, you know, what the best version of a movie is. And also, specifically, the ending of a film. The ending of a film is really hard to nail. And obviously these films set up a formula where you kind of want to see, you know, there’s always a big battle at the end. For the X-Men, you kind of want to see them united together at the end. So that was, I think that was what led to the reshoots, and I could be totally wrong. … But yeah, that’s my 2 cents there.”

Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek film will be Rated-R

A screenplay draft by Mark L. Smith for a Star Trek film that may be directed by Quentin Tarantino has been completed. Tarantino has not given the script a once over yet or delivered notes on the script to Smith.

Tarantino had this to say:

“There’s a script that exists for it now, I need to weigh in on it, but haven’t been able to do that yet.”

Dune: The Sisterhood TV Series Green-lit

Sci-fi TV series Dune: The Sisterhood has been given a straight-to-series order. The series is part of a new Dune universe that will begin with the Dune remake film directed by Denis Villeneuve. Villeneuve will produce the TV series and will direct the pilot episode of Dune: The Sisterhood. Jon Spaihts, who co-wrote the Dune remake, is writing the screenplays for Dune: The Sisterhood.

Dune: The Sisterhood‘s plot synopsis: based on the novel by Frank Herbert, “‘Dune: The Sisterhood’ is told through the eyes of a mysterious order of women known as the Bene Gesserit. Given extraordinary abilities by their mastery of the body and the mind, the Bene Gesserit expertly weave through the feudal politics and intrigue of The Imperium, pursuing plans of their own that will ultimately lead them to the enigmatic planet Arrakis, known to its inhabitants as Dune.”

The Affair Fifth and Final TV Season Premiere Date Revealed by Showtime

SHOWTIME(R) TO PREMIERE FIFTH AND FINAL SEASON OF GOLDEN GLOBE(R) WINNER “THE AFFAIR” ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 25 AT 9 PM ET/PT

The highly anticipated fifth and final season of the critically acclaimed, Golden Globe-winning SHOWTIME drama series THE AFFAIR will premiere on Sunday, August 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The series was created by WGA Award-winning playwright, writer, executive producer and showrunner Sarah Treem (House of Cards, In Treatment). THE AFFAIR is also executive produced by Jessica Rhoades (Sharp Objects), Hagai Levi (In Treatment), and Michele Giordono (Nurse Jackie). Starring Golden Globe nominee Dominic West, Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney and Sanaa Lathan, the series explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together. Oscar(R) and Golden Globe Award winner Anna Paquin (True Blood) joined the final season as a series regular. New guest stars in season five include Jennifer Jason Leigh (PATRICK MELROSE), Claes Bang (The Square) and Lyric Bent (She’s Gotta Have It), with Russell Hornsby (Fences) returning.

Season five will chronicle the aftermath of last season’s horrific events and find the characters coming to terms with the consequences of their choices – as they make the realization that if they really want to change their futures, they must first face the past. Helen (Tierney) begins the season involved in an intoxicating new affair with a charismatic movie star (guest star Claes Bang), who offers to give her everything she’s been missing. Noah (West) meanwhile has to swallow his pride and his jealousy and step in to take care of his family in her absence. But just when things seem to have stabilized, a chance encounter with someone from the distant past sets in a motion a sequence of events that brings them both to their knees. Paquin stars as Alison and Cole’s now adult daughter Joanie Lockhart, who returns some years in the future to piece together the truth about what happened to her mother, bringing the whole story full circle. In addition to West, Tierney and Paquin, season five series regulars include Julia Goldani Telles and Jadon Sand as Noah and Helen’s children, Whitney and Trevor Solloway; and Lathan, as Janelle, Noah’s girlfriend and the principal at the school where he teaches. Emily Browning, Omar Metwally, John Doman, Kathleen Chalfant, Max Fowler, Michael Braun, Abigail Dylan Harrison and Jake Siciliano will also guest star.
