@TheElliotPage @TheElliotPage, I am proud to be your friend.
Spark is a teenage monkey living in an underground bunker on the virtually destroyed planet Bana, alongside his best friends Chunk and Vix - a pig mechanic and a fox warrior respectively. Once upon a time, the planet was an incredible place to live, but with the arrival of the ruthless General Zhong thirteen years ago, it has become a wasteland. It's a dangerous world out there, but Spark wants to go out on missions with the other survivors and prove that he has what it takes to aid them in taking their planet back. But rescuing the Queen and his own parents from Zhong's prison-like rule is much harder than he ever could have anticipated.

The 76 year old actor made the revelation to support a new research programme from Oxford University into the benefits of medicinal marijuana.
Sir Patrick Stewart has revealed that he uses legally prescribed marijuana every day so that he can allay the symptoms of arthritis, which runs in his family.
The 76 year old Logan star, and long-standing icon of the stage and screen, made the admission in a statement he issued to support a new effort by Oxford University to explore the possible benefits of cannabis-based medicines. In it, he revealed that since 2015 he frequently uses a cannabis-based spray, ointment, and edible marijuana in his battle to keep at bay, and even reverse, the debilitating condition.

The pair re-united as Wolverine and Charles Xavier one last time on 'Logan'.
If you have ever seen them together off the set of 'Logan', you will know that Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart make very great friends indeed. After working together on the 'X-Men' and 'Wolverine' films for seventeen years, they have developed quite the bond - a chemistry obvious in their latest film 'Logan'.
Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart star in 'Logan'
'Logan' may well be the last time Hugh and Patrick play their respective roles of Wolverine and Professor X, and that only made this third and final Wolverine movie all the more intense. These characters are facing troubles they've never had before as age finally catches up with them - a factor that both the actors can relate to as they hang up their X-Men boots.

'Logan' sees another side to the 'X-Men' leader.
For Sir Patrick Stewart's last hurrah as Professor Charles Xavier in the third and final Wolverine film 'Logan', the actor really got to spread his wings with the character. No longer is the leader of the X-Men a level-headed wise old mutant, he's an unhinged and unpredictable mess.
Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart star in 'Logan'
Even mutants get old, as we see with Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in the final installation of his spin-off film series. He doesn't heal as quickly as he used to, which means that he never gets a chance to get on top of his game before the next fight comes around. Professor X, however, is a whole other story; age has hit him in a way no-one could have expected.

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?
Hugh 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.
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?).

Despite substandard animation, this brightly coloured sequel has a strong enough sense of both its story and characters to hold the audience's attention. And kids might not mind the quality, as they are re-introduced to classic characters in an all-new adventure based on the book Dorothy of Oz by Roger S Baum (great-grandson of L Frank).
It starts the morning after Dorothy (voiced by Lea Michele) gets back home to Kansas after her iconic adventure. Her panicky friends Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion (Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer and James Belushi) summon her back to Oz, where considerable time has passed while a crazed Jester (Martin Short) kidnaps good witch Glinda (Bernadette Peters) so he and his army of flying monkeys can launch their reign of terror. On her long journey back to Emerald City, Dorothy has a series of adventures with Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), the China Princess (Megan Hilty) and the old tree Tugg (Patrick Stewart), who all help her take on the Jester.
Yes, the plot is rather simplistic (the Jester merely seems evil for evil's sake), but the real problem is that the animation is badly under-developed. Characters are painfully thin, with no gravity to them at all, which makes it impossible for them to properly interact visually. Fortunately there are some clever touches to the design work, such as the way everything in Oz looks battered and broken, which adds a badly needed dark edge to the otherwise sunny silliness.

Hugh Jackman’s second scare with skin cancer has prompted him to once again warn his fans of the importance of wearing sun screen.
Hugh Jackman has warned his fans about the dangers of the sun and of not wearing sunscreen. The actor uploaded a picture on to Instagram of himself with his nose in a bandage. He added the caption “Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!”
Hugh Jackman attended the X-Men premiere with a bandaged nose.
The Wolverine actor received treatment for the same condition last year but the cells were also removed. Jackman warned his fans “don’t be foolish like me” urging them to “wear sunscreen.”
The world is verging on an apocalyptic disaster as the mutants continue to engage in vicious battles with only one possible outcome - their extinction. Unfortunately, any chance of saving the world from its oncoming fate has been and gone a long time ago - though there could be a way to change history. The two wisest mutants of the universe, Charles Xavier and Magneto, have been at odds for a great many years, but they must this time unite to have any hope of saving their people. They contact Wolverine to help them on their mission to go back in time and convince their younger selves that trouble lies ahead if they don't make the right decisions; Wolverine is the only one who can take on such a task with his healing powers giving him enough strength, but can he possibly save the future?

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'. Director Bryan Singer ('The Usual Suspects', 'Superman Returns', 'Valkyrie') returns alongside screenwriter Simon Kinberg ('Mr. & Mrs. Smith', 'Sherlock Holmes', 'Jumper'). The movie is set for release in the UK on May 22nd 2014.
Patrick Stewart gay? The Guardian sure think so.
It looks like the sub-editors on the Guardian's 'comment is free' section took a little break on Monday (February 17, 2014), when an article referring to Sir Patrick Stewart as gay slipped through the net...onto the net. The Star Trek actor married the jazz singer Sunny Ozell in September 2013.
Sunny Ozell [L] and her husband Patrick Stewart [R}
In Jane Czyzselska's celebration of Ellen Page's coming out, the journalist wrote:
Dorothy Gale is barely back in her Tornado-ravaged hometown in Kansas five minutes than she is whisked off over the rainbow back to the topsy-turvy land of Oz once more to rescue her friends, the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and Glinda, and the rest of Oz's innocent residents from a terrible peril. At the helm of this new evil is the Jester, more frightening than funny, who plans to turn the leaders of Oz into puppets controlled for his own nefarious means. Along the way Dorothy and her beloved dog Toto meets a string of new and unusual characters including Wiser the Owl, China Princess, Marshal Mallow and former tree Tugg the Tugboat, as she sets off on another exhilarating adventure to find her friends.
'Legends Of Oz: Dorothy's Return' is a new animated fantasy based on both L. Frank Baum's 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' and his great-grandson Roger Stanton Baum's sequel 'Dorothy of Oz'. It has been directed by Will Finn ('The Road to El Dorado') and Dan St. Pierre ('Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey') and written by Adam Balsam, Randi Barnes ('Imagination Movers') and Barry Glasser ('Skateboy') with a film score by Oscar nominated singer Bryan Adams. This enchanting family movie with hit the US on May 9th 2014.

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.
Congratulations to the happy couple and their unusual minister.
In news that will hopefully make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, Sir Patrick Stewart has just gotten married – in a ball pit, if the picture he tweeted along with the brief announcement is anything to go by.
Yes, married. pic.twitter.com/ZSMnpluSeL— Patrick Stewart (@SirPatStew) September 8, 2013
Acting great Patrick Stewart was married to Sunny Ozell in a ceremony officiated by his good friend Sir Ian McKellen
Sir Patrick Stewart has once again become a married man, and the lucky woman this time is Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Sunny Ozell, his girlfriend over over five years. According to a source who first spoke to Us Weekly, the actor and his new wife made things official on Sunday, 8 September, with Sir Pat further confirming the news through a picture of the couple uploaded on to his Twitter page.
We hope that Patrick and Sunny have a joyful matrimony
The couple, who got engaged in March, kept the wedding proceedings a secret from the press until the day, ensuring they didn't mention the special day in public until after the ceremony had taken place. Recreating his brilliant Twitter profile picture, Sir Patrick and Sunny posed in a multi-coloured ball pool for a different kind of wedding photo on Sunday (8 Sept.) along with the caption: "Yes, married."
For all you budding actors out there, Sir Patrick Stewart's YouTube masterclass on the 'quadruple take' might be just what you need
Patrick Stewart has a fantastic relationship with the internet, whether it's his through his regularly updated Twitter page or just because his many antics have made him a goldmine for gif-makers everywhere, the web just can't get enough of Sir Pat. His latest online sensation is a video recorded by his fiancée, Sunny Ozell, which features the acting great giving a masterclass on how to master the 'quadruple take.'
Sir Patrick ages like a fine wine
Dressed casually whilst sat atop his outside decking and with his audience of one sat in front filming him, Sir Pat delivers the 'Quadruple Take Masterclass.' Having gone through the single, double and then the triple take, filming begins just as Patrick is about to explain the "rarely used device in comedy" - the quadruple take, a device that may be used rarely, but still has it's place in comedy. But this is a serious lesson (ok, it isn't remotely serious, but it's all about the comedy), as he makes clear to his wife-to-be.

Wolverine is joined by Magneto and Professor Xavier at an airport to discuss the possible follow-up to X Men: The Last Stand
The Wolverine currently stands at the top of the US Box Office, mirroring this success in around 100 other countries across the globe, but despite this successful audience turn-around, not everyone stuck around to see the sneak peak at the next X Men film. The scene, which comes after the end credits, may have blindsided a number of cinema-goers, who missed out on the pretty epic scene.
Jackman is back as Wolverine
The scene is set two years after Logan's run in with Viper and his ninja army in Japan and sees Wolverine stood in line for an airport metal detector. He looks up to a wall-mounted television, playing an advertisement for Trask Industries (the company responsible for launching the mutant-hunting Sentinels in next summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past), before being ushered through the metal detector, which obviously goes off and Logan has to be patted down (how many people wanted that job?!) by a security guard. During his pat down, he notices a familiar scene; coins and other loose metal objects shaking furiously around him, meaning only one thing.
Patrick Stewart and Halle Berry are among the cast and crew of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' to chat about their on-set experience and their characters at a presentation at Comic-Con in San Diego.

The next film will see the cast doubled (quite literally) as the mutant superheroes have to travel in time to change an event which will, if not prevented, destroy mankind. The cast appeared en masse: each taking a few moments to address the audience or in Ian McKellan's case to flirt with Michael Fassbender.

It's all good, people, he has eaten pizza before, just not in 'slice' form.
Ok, calm down people – Sir Patrick Stewart has in fact eaten pizza before in his life. The actor started a social media storm yesterday, when he tweeted a photo of himself enjoying an authentic NY slice, captioned "My first ever pizza 'slice'. Please note: the authentic NY fold." Sidenote: if you’re not following the man on Twitter, you should, it will enhance your life (for the display picture alone).
In any case, despite a torrent of concern (after all, how can a human being in a developed country have avoided the food of the gods for so long?) it turned out that yes, he had had pizza before. Just not a “slice”.
Sir Patrick clarified the tweet to New York magazine: "People misunderstood. There was a school of thought that I had eaten my first pizza, but of course how could that possibly be true? I would have had to have stayed locked up in a cellar. But nevertheless, this was my first slice of pizza, which I was only eating because my fiancée and I were a little hung-over yesterday morning and she said what we need is pizza and a soothing drink — and she was right. It solved the problem. But, in fact, it was my first slice, and when it was brought over to me, my first comment was 'There's no knife and fork.' Of course, I was mocked for thinking that I could eat a pizza slice with a knife and fork."
Continue reading: The Patrick Stewart Pizza Controversy Has Been Resolved At Last
Patrick Stewart has clarified his pizza comments from earlier this week.
Sir Patrick Stewart found himself making headlines around the world this week after wandering into a Brooklyn pizzeria and announcing it was his first ever slice. The 72-year-old Star Trek actor was dragged into the eatery by his fiance who claimed she could cure his hangover with some premium melted cheese and a fizzy drink.
In a Twitter picture posted on Thursday, showing him enjoying his pizza, Stewart said, "My first ever pizza slice," which basically sent the Internet into frantic overdrive. How had one of the world's most famous actors never tried the delights of a pizza? However, all was not what it seemed, and Stewart told the New York Magazine, "People misunderstood. There was a school of thought that I had eaten my first pizza, but of course how could that possibly be true? I would have had to have stayed locked up in a cellar," he said, adding, "But nevertheless.this was my first slice of pizza, which I was only eating because my fiancée and I were a little hungover yesterday morning and she said what we need is pizza and a soothing drink - and she was right. It solved the problem." Nice work Patrick!
So there you have it, Sir Patrick Stewart has tried a pizza before, though never in slice form. Weird!

The actor has also admitted to never eating 'one thousand' and 'four hundred' year old eggs before
At 72, Sir Patrick Stewart has seen and experienced things that many of us could only dream of. Surprisingly though, there's something that just about everybody has tried before that Sir Patrick is not quite as familiar with; the humble pizza slice. This changed for the veteran actor earlier this week though, when he got his lips around a slice in New York with his fiancé.
A hungover Sir Pat stumbled upon the Italian's most revered inventions after a night drinking in the Big Apple, hoping that a greasy slice of pizza from a nearby take away would chase away his headache. On Wednesday (May 29) the thespian Tweeted a picture of himself take by his fiancé with a pizza slice in hand (with 'authentic NY fold') with the caption 'My first ever pizza "slice".'
Naturally, being the big news story it is, Patrick has been quizzed fairly regularly about the whole life-experience since it happened, most recently when he returned to the U.K. for an appearance on Eddie Mair's Radio 4 show 'PM' on Thursday (May 30). The actor was asked about how it feels to be such a viral sensation thanks to his picture and what the moment was like when he ate the pizza, to which he replied; "I look on this as maybe being the high point of my career, if not my life."
A recent poll put together to celebrate the release of the board game Stratego Sci-Fi has found that the late Christopher Reeves as the Man of Steel is the public's favourite sci-fi star to grace the silver screen.
Reeves battled off tough competition from Star Wars’ Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Yoda (Frank Oz), who placed second and third respectively, and Star Trek's James T Kirk (William Shatner) and Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), who placed seventh and tenth in the countdown.
Perhaps the most unusual choice for the top ten was Will Smith's Agent Jay character from the Men In Black trilogy, who made it all the way to number five in the countdown, whereas one of the more natural choices - David Tennant as Dr Who - was pushed all the was down to number twenty.

After a childhood wish brought his teddy bear to life, John (Wahlberg) has become inseparable with his buddy Ted (voiced by Macfarlane). But John's girlfriend Lori (Kunis) is starting to think that a 35-year-old man and his fluffy pal should stop living like stoner-slackers. Worried about the foul-mouthed, womanising Ted's influence, she encourages John to make his own way in life, so they can be a proper couple. But separating Ted and John is more difficult than it looks.

Without too much regret, I can say that X-Men will be palatable to fans and newbies alike. It's not a great film, but it will probably follow the arc of the Superman and Batman movies -- tons of sequels of variable quality until an abrupt and dismal end a decade later.

When brainy, bobble-headed computer-toon hero Jimmy Neutron tells his mom he's contacted alien life forms in "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius," she's taken aback by his disobedience.
"Jimmy," she scolds, "how many times have I told you not to talk to strangers?"
It's a moment that defines the wit and whimsy of this spirited CGI kiddie creation, which is absolutely popping with personality and prodigious production design.
