After teasing us last week, Marvel finally shelled out the goods. At long last, the first full-length movie trailer for the highly anticipated sequel-prequel is here. And it’s everything I’d hope it would be.
The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves in an epic battle that must change the past– to save their future. Watching Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin and Ian McKellan in the same film is going to be phenomenal. To boot, several new faces join the franchise including Booboo Stewart (Warpath), Adan Canto (Sunspot), Fan Bingbing (Blink), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Lucas Till (Havok). Check out the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer below.
Bryan Singer has kept fans updated with the film’s progess by tweeting photos from on set. With X-Men Days of Future Past filming in Montreal wrapped up, the director decided to treat fans with an actual promotional image.
It features Nicholas Hoult in human form as The Beast, James McAvoy wheeling around as Professor X and Hugh Jackman being his beefy self wearing distinctively 70s-era clothing while hanging out in a really shiny hallway. Groovy, don’t you think? I can’t wait for the sequel to hit theaters. How about you? Sound off below.
I’m honestly running out of original ways to frame the titles of these articles, so thank hell the genres of the movies I review keep blending; I have nearly an infinite amount of combinations to play with! Today, we’re looking at the psycho-mystery entitled Trance (Spring Release 2013). Staring some decent big name-ish actors including the impossibly pretty Rosario Dawson, boy-next-door cute James McAvoy and the maturely European-to-a-tee Vincent Cassel, there’s no lack of talent on the screen… but does the story hold up? Basically, we follow the aftermath of a art heist gone wrong at an auctioneers hall (btw the purloined artwork in question is by my FAVOURITE artist: Fancisco de Goya) as the protagonist played by McAvoy recovers from an amnesiac blow to the head and attempts to remember where he placed the lost painting. Cassel easily plays the playboy, hardass thief who threatens to murder and torture our main character at every turn if he cannot remember the painting’s location while Dawson plays the vixen hypnotherapist who works to coax McAvoy into retracing his steps.
The good: this movie is NOT predictable and you won’t know what’s really happening until the very end so being bored isn’t really an option. The bad: this movie REALLY stretches your belief that it’s something that could happen in real life. Don’t get me wrong, no one turns into a bat or anything, but the layers of deceit seem hard enough for us the relaxed viewer to follow let alone the damaged characters of the movie. Still, it’s totally worth a view. There’s some pretty agro sex scenes and while Cassel is a bit skinny to get my daddy-fetish going, McAvoy is just enough a jerk to make my asshole-engine running! The director is the main pitch of this one as it’s created by Danny Boyle of Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later and Trainspotting fame. The premise is definitely interesting and the action and twists non-stop, so, as long as you have your wits about you and don’t mind a bit of violence, this could be for you.
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
