Fox has done some shake-ups with their schedule, and the new X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix, was moved to a June 07, 2019 release date. It’s original opening date of February 14th went to Alita: Battle Angel. Also, Empire has released a new image from the film featuring our mutant heroes ready for action.

DEADLINE – Also, the next X-Men Dark Phoenix won’t open on Feb. 14 anymore, rather next summer in the June 7 slot. The trailer launched this week earning close to 8M YouTube views on Fox’s channel. Summer is not only a better date, but again, it gives the film a better shot to have a bigger opening in China. Why? The trailer clocked 44 million views in first 24 hrs of release online this week out of China.   Also, premium screens previously reserved for Gambit will be in play and provide an even bigger upside for the film. Dark Phoenix will be up against Illumination/Uni’s The Secret Life of Pets 2 and Lionsgate’s comedy Flarsky on that date.

The official trailer of the new X-Men film, Dark Phoenix, has arrived! Check it our below, and trailer screencaps and an official image in our gallery. The film is out in theaters on February 14, 2019, save the date!

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

Firstly, I apologize for being so behind on the updates. I promise I’ll make up for all of it soon. Nicholas attended this year’s Venice Film Festival for The Favourite promotion. I have updated the gallery with high-quality photos from the photocall, press conference, and premiere held at the festival!



Nicholas and his friends attended the California Superbike School last year, and editor Sean MacDonald compiled some footages that reflect their best race school experiences!

It’s been one year to the day (as I’m writing this at least) since four of my buddies and I invaded Las Vegas for a weekend of riding and learning at Keith Code’s California Superbike School. A lot has happened since then in all of our riding lives, and we’ve finally pulled together various riding and interview footage for a little video.

It seems like so much longer than just a year. A lot can happen in that time, evidenced acutely through both my friendships with Justin Chatwin, Albert Hammond Jr., Jesse Waits, and Nick Hoult and through all of our progression and obsession with motorcycles.

Just a few short weeks after the school Justin, Jesse, and I went to another trackday at Buttonwillow to test out the newly revised AGV Corsa helmet, where it was even more apparent how much the boys had progressed. Justin had picked up a ton of speed, while Jesse looked infinitely more comfortable and was proving increasingly hard to pass.

Justin and I have spent the last year riding (and lightly competing) in every form of motorcycle riding since. We spent most of the winter in the desert on dual-sports, went to Laguna Seca for our first public trackday, and recently raced at the Roland Sands Design Moto Beach Classic.

Both Albert and Jesse bought bikes—Albert a slightly used Yamaha R6 and Jesse an Aprilia RSV4. Both have been hitting up trackdays as often as possible, and the three of us are doing a pair of trackdays following Thanksgiving with TrackDaz (there are still spots, sign up!). I’m pretty nervous I’m gonna get smoked.

Nick’s been a little busier, but he’s been to more riding schools and is coming along crazy-fast as a rider. He’s into all things that go fast, so we still share him with silly car events (that actually sound amazing), but we’re hopefully finding some time to get him back out with us. While everyone’s riding has come along quickly, the only thing taking forever are our “Jesse And The Rippers” jackets—because only the toughest bike gangs can be named after Uncle Jesse’s band from the TV show Full House.

Check out this interview of MR PORTER with Nicholas, wherein he talks about The Current War and the preparations he did for the film, his bathrobe obsession, and how he prepares for his roles. The site also features the wardrobe Nicholas used for the shoot, and you can get them from the MR PORTER shop.

Mr Nicholas Hoult is more of a house party than a nightclub kind of guy. He says he’s not a great dancer, unless someone plays “Le Freak” by Chic, then he’ll have a go anyway. “Last night, I went to a friend’s house and we all got a little drunk. You know when it’s unexpected, those are the best nights. When you see someone randomly and you’re just chatting and drinking and then suddenly you’re both like, ‘Hey, we’re having a good time, we’re both drunk, why don’t we go ahead and do this?’ And then it turns into something impromptu. I had no idea that last night would end with me singing Tom Jones on karaoke with a disco ball going in someone’s house.”

His hangover cure? “Run a sink of cold water, fill it with ice, then stick your head in it.” But Mr Hoult rarely wakes up feeling rough these days: “It’s not like when I was in Skins. Now I’m older I realise that I’m working and if I’m not on point, I can’t do it, my brain isn’t up to speed.”

No. These days he’s more likely to get his weekly highs from hot yoga. He goes to classes as often as he can when he’s home in northwest London in between filming. (He’s currently gearing up to play Professor JRR Tolkien in a biopic of the writer’s life.) But he’s keen to stress he is not that guy. You know the one, in his pants on the front row, deep-breathing louder than anyone else – “probably has sort of bun, topknot situation… I’m like back row, normal baggy gym shorts, shaking, wobbling, falling over, occasionally lying down”.

He’s enjoying his hot-yoga routine (mixed with boxing and cardio) while he’s home for a few weeks to promote his new film The Current War, the story of Thomas Edison (Mr Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse’s (Mr Michael Shannon) technological battle to supply electricity to the World Fair in 1893. Mr Hoult plays Mr Nikola Tesla, “A strange ethereal genius, who was well ahead of his time, but couldn’t see eye to eye with Edison in terms of them working together so tried to start his own business. Then he went to join George Westinghouse and together [spoiler alert], they won the bid.”

We’re sat on a sofa in a small room in the MR PORTER shoot location house. It is not dissimilar in its styling to the louche interiors of Mr Tom Ford’s setting for the 2009 film A Single Man, in which Mr Hoult plays the love interest of an older gay professor (played by Mr Colin Firth), in a role which saw him segue from British student TV drama Skins to serious Hollywood contender. Action blockbusters X-Men and Mad Max: Fury Road followed, via indie dramas, Warm BodiesEquals and Kill Your Friends. He is eating salad off a paper plate balanced on his knee. Is that something Mr Ford would strongly disapprove of? “Yes,” says Mr Hoult, “he’s got an eye for detail like no one else I’ve ever met before so of course, everything’s very precise aesthetically, for sure.”

The Serbian-born engineer Mr Nikola Tesla was also a man with a very particular sense of order in his life: “He had three of everything,” explains Mr Hoult. “He worked out the cubic volume of food before he’d eat it. Oh, and he was obsessed with pigeons. But he would have these flashes in his brain of the things he wanted to invent and he could build them completely in his mind first.” He says Tesla (after whom Mr Elon Musk has named his electric car and energy company) was also very conscious about taking care of his appearance, “in terms of clothes and style. Even when he was broke, he was like, ‘I’m going to dress well.’”
