Last week, rumors that another veteran from the original X-Men trilogy joining X-Men: Days of Future Past surfaced. They were started by none other than James McAvoy who plays the younger Charles Xavier in the reboot series. The 33-year-old Scottish actor slipped up by including Alan Cumming’s name with Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman and others as coming back to the franchise. Cumming appeared as Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler in 2003′s X2. Turns out those rumors were false… or were they.
Cumming revealed that he hadn’t “gotten the call” from Bryan Singer. Since the rumors surfaced, the director has neither confirmed nor denied Cumming’s addition. In a photo released via Twitter, however, Singer did reveal a few casting additions not previously released. One of which is Daniel Cudmore who played Colossus in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand. Glad the Canadian star is back in the fold. He’s one tall drink of hotness. Find out the other newbies joining X-Men: Days of Future Past below.
The trailer for a new thriller called Trance has just come out, produced and directed by Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, Trainspotting). The film stars James McAvoy in the leading role, alongside Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel.
Here’s the premise of the film: A fine art auctioneer named Simon (McAvoy) mixed up with a criminal gang (lead by Franck (Cassel)) joins forces with a hypnotherapist named Elizabeth (Dawson) to recover a lost painting. As boundaries between desire, reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur, the stakes rise faster than anyone could have anticipated.
There appears to be some pretty sexy scenes in the film (or at least naked ones) with McAvoy that certainly captured my attention in the trailer. The film hits theaters on March 27. Check out the trailer below!
This coming June, we’ll be treated to the latest X-Men movie, titled “X-Men First Class“. The story is a prequel to what we’ve seen so far and the photo above is your first look at the new cast. Here is the synopsis of the film:
Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-MEN
