'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' Comes Together in New Trailer Lately, there’s been a trend of splitting stories up into two movies: Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games all divided their final chapters into separate installments, and the Divergent series is planning on doing the same. So it’s quite a refreshing change when a director takes two films and puts them together into one. In the first trailer for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy meet and fall in love, but with slight differences in the details depending on whose point of view you see. Originally, writer/director Ned Benson crafted two films — subtitled Her and Him — that told the same story through the perspectives of both partners in a marriage.
We knew from 2011’s X-Men: First Class that — at least in the Marvel universe — James McAvoy is what a young Patrick Stewart would look like, and Michael Fassbender a young Ian McKellen. That was easier to accept then, as Stewart and McKellen weren’t inFirst Class to compare and contrast. But all four are in the new filmX-Men: Days of Future Past — the elders in the present, the youngsters in 1973 — and seeing them juxtaposed in one film makes it clear that while they are in syncdramatically, physically, well, they’re clearly not the same guys. Take a look at how Stewart and McKellen looked in the early ’70s, compared to theirX-Men "younger selves."
Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, who reprise their roles as Professor X and Magneto in the upcomingX-Men: Days of Future Past, have become the Internet’s favorite bromance. From selfies around New York wearing bowler hats to the wedding photos of McKellen officiating Stewart’s marriage ceremony, the two fellows have become the Bert and Ernie of the online world. But why are these two acting legends such good pals? Yahoo Movies UK got James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, who once again play younger versions of Xavier and Magneto in the new movie, to ask them. Stewart took more of an earnest approach, explaining their friendship is rooted in “both our differences and our similarities.
The bond among the “X-Men: Days of Future Past\" cast members is a strong one, as we saw from the warm and fuzzy rapport on display at today’s London premiere. But it wasn’t just between known chums Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, but also between James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, who of course play younger versions of the Stewart’s Professor X and McKellen’s Magneto, respectively.
This is by far the funniest thing I’ve ever seen! Actors reading fanfics and looking at pornish fanarts about themselves… FANDOM WE’RE SCREWED!!!
We’ve seen some of what’s in store from the evil army of mutant-hunting robots, those Sentinels that Wolverine and the gang have to contend with in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” We’ve had a good look at those futuristic evil Trask Industries creations — and have even wondered aloud over whether one of those mechanical marauders is going to kill Storm (Halle Berry) in the upcoming comic book movie. But the latest and final “X-Men” trailer, which dropped on Tuesday night, offers the first good cinematic gander at the retro Sentinels of the ’70s, when they were newly created by Bolivar Trask, played by Peter Dinklage of “Game of Thrones” fame. Before they were oversized, fighting robot weapons, the Sentinels started out as artificial limbs in the late ’60s, constructed with DNA, according to a handy online “X-Men” study guide posted by 20th Century Fox late last week. By the early ’70s, Trask Industries got tapped by the Nixon administration to make the first line of Sentinels for U.S. defense.
The stars of X-Men: Days Of Future past attempt to impersonate their fellow co-stars in Yahoo’s exclusive fan Q & A! Fassy does Ian, James does Patrick (“Engage…”) and Hugh does… [surprise]!! Also, I love that we hear an Irish, Scottish and Australian accents, from guys dressed similarly! The cup of charm runneth over!
The future is now as the latest trailer for “X-Men: Days of Future Past " has landed in the present, and with it a shocking revelation: the potential death of at least one major graduate of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. We’re speaking of Ororo Munroe, aka Storm, the weather-controlling badass beauty played by Halle Berry in the original “X-Men” trilogy. In recent weeks, Berry and director Bryan Singerrefuted speculation that her role had been considerably cut from the final version of the film. Emphasis on the “cut” in today’s trailer: at the 26-second mark, Storm appears to get ambushed by a Sentinel (one of the mutant-stomping robots created by Peter Dinklage’s Bolivar Trask).
Bryan Singer on the set of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Director Bryan Singer promises that “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the fifth film in the Marvel mutant movie series, will be on the “biggest scale yet.” And that certainly seemed to be the case when Yahoo visited the expansive Montreal set last year. At an enormous studio complex, Singer and his team recreated the White House lawn for a key scene, and star Hugh Jackman, who returns as Wolverine for the seventh time, teased that “the stakes are at their greatest” for the mutants in this movie. “It’s the greatest threat the X-Men have ever face, and this is as dangerous as it gets for all of them.” In a dystopian future, Professor X and Magneto (franchise veterans Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen), and their mutant allies are united in internment under the rule of enormous robots known as Sentinels. Hatching a plan to prevent this future from occurring, they send Wolverine back in time to try and stop the chain reaction of events that caused the fall of mutantkind.
The multi-talented Timba Smits has taken the art directing reigns of movie mag Little White Lies this month, and he invited me to draw this portrait of James McAvoy to accompany an interview with the actor, soon to star in Irvine Welsh adaptation Filth. Not much to say other than that this was really fun to draw, and thanks for Timba for getting me involved. The issue should be on shelves in all reputable and disreputable stockists now.
