James McAvoy Gets A Professor Xavier-Style Trim For "Apocalypse"


James McAvoy Patrick Stewart

Don’t let it be said that James McAvoy goes halfway on any role. For his third (and probably final) turn playing the young, not yet in control of his power Professor Xavier in X-Men, the actor is really going the extra mile and, yes, shaving off his hair.

James McAvoy
Say goodbye to those luscious locks, folks.

Director Bryan Singer took to Instagram on Friday, May 8 to share a photo of the professor Xavier of the "X-Men" film franchise sporting the character's signature look, reported Ace Showbiz.

First Look At New Movie 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby' [Trailer]


James McAvoy Jessica Chastain

The upcoming romantic drama The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is the pinnacle of a number of years’ work by debut director Ned Benson.It’s an amalgamation of three films telling the same story, the first two which, were screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and billed as ‘works in progress’. The addition of a third part, called Them, makes the whole of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.

The basic premise – girl and boy fall in love, get married before running into various obstacles in their relationship – is as old as time itself, but the innovation that Benson brings is in the structure and format.

Conor (James McAvoy) and Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) play a couple who fall in love and get married, before hitting various hiccups in their relationship. However, this film is far from the clichéd love story, and instead tells the tale from both points of view, as well as relatable and engaging look at the relationship of two people still trying to figure out who the other person truly is. The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby charts the highs and lows in a relationship between two people trying to recreate the past, so as not to let their love fade away.

How Does X-Men: Days Of Future Past's Debut Compare To Other Box Office Goliaths?


James McAvoy Hugh Jackman

Memorial Weekend hasn’t just frustrated Game of Thrones fans, it also saw X-Men: Days of Future Past storm the box office with a global total of $261m – a new record for the franchise internationally. Despite that, though, it looks as though Wolverine et al aren’t even in the top ten when it comes to first weekends.

X-Men: Days of Future PastNick Hoult, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman in X-Men: Days of Future Past

In fact, it comes in 16th, just ahead of The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King, which grabbed $250m on its first weekend out in the open, and just behind Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – a $272m debut for Paramount. All these numbers are from the excellent Box Office Mojo.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Is The Blockbuster To Beat With Huge Opening Box Office


Hugh Jackman James McAvoy Michael Fassbender Jennifer Lawrence Patrick Stewart Halle Berry

X-Men: Days of Future Past has the most successful first-weekend X-Men movie and the biggest opener of the year so far with its hugely successful debut. What’s more, it looks like Fox’s biggest ever debut, and guess which studio was behind James Cameron’s Avatar?

X-Men:Days of Future PastHugh Jackman as Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past 

With an estimated global total of $281.1m, Days of Future Past has already earned back its reported $200m budget. The biggest chunk of that came solely from home base, America, with $90.7m over the Memorial Day weekend – oh, and sorry ‘Game of Thrones’ fans; that means a week’s wait for the next episode.

X-men: Days Of Future Past Review


Excellent

Continuing to be the most original and resonant of the Marvel superhero franchises, the X-men return in the capable hands of director Bryan Singer, who again stirs plenty of meaty subtext beneath the thrilling action. He also has one of the best casts imaginable, including Oscar winners, cinema royalty, rising stars and matinee idols.

Best of all, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) returns to the fold after two less-than-thrilling solo adventures. He's at the centre of everything here, as Professor X and Magneto (Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen) ask Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to send Wolverine's consciousness back 50 years to 1973. His mission is to prevent Dr Trask (Peter Dinklage) from inventing mutant-hunting robots, because they will go out of control and cause a present-day dystopia in which mutants and anyone who sympathises with them are killed. But Wolverine's biggest task will be to get the then-feuding Professor X and Magneto (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender) to work together to keep renegade mutant Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) from making everything worse.

Thankfully, Simon Kinberg's script doesn't worry too much about the whole time-travel thing, shrugging off dubious logic by keeping the focus on the characters. And there are a lot of people to keep an eye on, which makes the film sometimes feel a bit crowded and leaves some characters barely on-screen at all (blink and you'll miss Anna Paquin's Rogue). The best newbie is Evan Peters' Quicksilver, who gets the film's most entertaining sequence as he races around tweaking an action sequence frame by frame. Other set-pieces are grippingly darker, and some don't quite make sense (why does Magneto feel the need to levitate an entire stadium?).

The Avengers Vs X-Men? James McAvoy Wants To See It. Wants To Get Involved


James McAvoy Hugh Jackman

Both X-Men and The Avengers are Marvel’s biggest movie properties. With 'Days of Future Past' currently in the process of dismantling box offices around the world and putting them back together in the shape of a big X, those Avengers will be performing similar feats next year when 'Age of Ultron' hits town and tries to outgun the $1.5 billion dollar machine that preceded it.

X-Men Days of Future PastLooks like James McAvoy is ready to fight just about anyone, including himself?

One can only imagine, then, what it would be like if Marvel decided to include the two franchises in one movie. Marvel geeks out there will instantly be able to flag up any continuity and lore-based stumbling blocks with that, while the more business minded fans would cite rights and ownership. But as Hugh Jackman says on SiriusXM Town Hall hosted by Jess Cagle, if someone wants to make it happen, it could probably happen.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Trailer


The mutants of the world are quickly dwindling in their numbers, tearing each other apart until they are almost wiped out. Two of the wisest X-Men of the universe, Charles Xavier and Magneto, must now join forces despite their hostile relationship to go back in time and fix the world so that their kind can survive the horrors of their ravaged future. The duo enlist Wolverine to help them on their mission; a mutant whose healing powers make him the only one strong enough to travel in time. He must find the impulsive fools that are Xavier and Magneto as much younger mutants and warn them of what their actions will do for their future, while on the way attempt to save the life of an important political figure. Will the X-Men succeed in changing their future? Or are there some things in the past that can never be changed?

'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' is the latest instalment of the Marvel film franchise following on from 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand' and 2011's 'X-Men: First Class'.

It’s here, finally – the third X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer is here, just one month ahead of the film’s premiere.

Is This A Celebrity Which I See Before Me? Hollywood Actors Who Have Tackled Shakespeare Roles


Tom Hiddleston Christian Bale Anne Hathaway James McAvoy Russell Brand Ben Whishaw

There’s no better way of proving that you are a true artiste than taking on a challenging Shakespearean role. Not content with raking in millions of dollars from their blockbuster movies, these famous actors and actresses decided that they needed some to shake up their careers with a bit of William Shakespeare.

Tom Hiddleston’s talents aren’t restricted to playing Marvel Comics’ super villian, Loki. The Thor star has a soft spot for Shakespeare, starring in the Hollow Crown series as Henry V as well as taking on Coriolanus at the Donmar Warehouse. Sounds like an easy role to kill a bit of time in between filming. Well, maybe not, but there’s certainly a lot of killing of some kind.

In a post-apocalyptic world where mutants are now scarce, Charles Xavier must convince Wolverine to travel back in time to warn Xavier's younger self about their impending disaster-struck world. Magneto is also united with his fellow mutants, as now all their kind must stick together if they want to survive a world that they are no longer welcome in. Previously, the battle between humankind and X-Men caused the attempted assassination of an important political figure, something that Wolverine must control as he goes back to instil some knowledge into the much more reckless X-Men of the 1980s.

James McAvoy's 'Filth' Earns A Split Reception On Opening Day- Review Round Up


James McAvoy

'Filth' is a British crime film based on Irvine Welsh's novel of the same name. The book was published in 1998, not long after Welsh's 'Trainspotting' was adapted into a feature film by Danny Boyle. Many said it couldn't be adapted but director and writer, Jon S. Baird, attempts to prove it can be done.

James McAvoy plays the drug and alochol addicted policeman, Bruce Robinson

The premise of the story fits its title accordingly, the film follows a cocaine sniffing, alcohol drinking Edinburgh policeman called Bruce Robinson, who works his way through the criminal underworld in one of Scotland's major cities, showing a lack of professionalism in his near-psychotic behaviour.

"The Filth" UK Premiere Sees James McAvoy In What Might Be His Most Challenging Role Yet


James McAvoy Irvine Welsh

Filth, Jon S. Baird’s adaptation of the eponymous Irvine Welsch novel Filth, starring James McAvoy. The actor, known for his roles in X-Men: First Class, Wanted and, once upon a time The Chronicles of Narnia, has definitely switched gears for this one. McAvoy plays corrupt cop Bruce Robertson, who struggles with bipolar disorder, whilst engaging in practically every vice, known to humanity. As you may have guessed, the actor’s overall nice guy persona made him a less than obvious choice for the part. However, in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, which McAvoy gave at the film’s Zurich Film Festival premiere, he explained why he took on the challenge of playing so starkly against type.

Filth Poster
The poster leaves little doubt - this is going to be one of those "love it or hate it" films.

“This was simply one of the best scripts I'd ever read. In the top three, McAvoy says. “It's up there with Atonement. A beautiful and harrowing script.”
