Hugh Jackman: X-Men will be 'action-packed'

Jan 21 2013, 10:06am CST | by

Hugh Jackman has hinted 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' will be ''action-packed''.

The 44-year-old actor - who plays Wolverine in the mutant superhero franchise - admits he can't wait to return to his role alongside stars such as Sir Ian McKellen (Magneto) and Sir Patrick Stewart (Professor Charles Xavier) as well as newcomers to the cast, to form an exciting blockbuster.

He told the MailOnline: ''You wouldn't have enough room on the page after you've listed all [the stars]. Every other actor who's ever put on a superhero uniform will be in it. There's an element of time travel and, naturally, it will be action-packed.''

The story will switch between two moments of time throughout the film, with some of the scenes set in the same timeline as 'X-Men: First Class' and featuring younger Magneto and Xavier Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, while the rest will show the mutants trapped in future concentration camps.

Ian previously expressed how ''wonderful'' it is for himself and Patrick to reprise their original roles after the last film focused on their younger selves.

He said: ''What a gas! We can't believe it. I thought these were Fassbender and McAvoy's parts, but - no, no - we're back.

''We'll give them a run for their money. I mean, I haven't read the script, so I don't know how much we've got to do.

''But, to be back in that world, and for Bryan [Singer] to be doing it - with all the success he's had in the meantime - it's wonderful. Wonderful.''

'X-Men: Days Of Future Past', directed by Bryan Singer, is scheduled for a July 18 2014 release.

Chappie’s Family Revealed In Window Cling For Neill Blomkamp’s Latest [Comic Con 2014]

Jul 28 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

After two movies filled with massive sci-fi action, it seems Neill Blomkamp is going a bit more emotional for his latest film. Sony very quietly kicked off the marketing campaign for Chappie at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, with a big banner and a window cling handed to fans as they walked by the booth. Most fans were confused by the swag, which shows a rudimentary drawing of two parents, one holding a gun, alongside a robot. But it’s an incredibly intriguing image for the March 201 ...

Meet Chappie in the First Poster For Neill Blomkamp's Action Comedy

Jul 24 2014 7:26am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Neill Blomkamp quickly established himself as the go-to-guy for gritty, realistic science fiction. District 9 was certainly an impressive debut effort from the South African director, while Elysium, although less well received, only bolstered his science fiction credentials.However, his next project, Chappie looks like it might do things slightly differently. Described as an action-comedy-drama, Chappie tells the ...

Neill Blomkamp‘s next film, Chappie, doesn’t have a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, but if this year is proving anything, it’s that panels aren’t the only way to raise awareness for a project. Sometimes something as simple as an evocative poster will do the trick. That’s exactly what Sony used in the case of Chappie, which stars Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Sharlto Copley. Check out the first Chappie poster b ...

Kevin Feige Teases Possible Avengers / Guardians of the Galaxy Crossover

Jul 21 2014 9:30am CDT | Source: slash film

Guardians of the Galaxy takes place literally worlds away from The Avengers, and yet both superhero teams occupy the same universe at the same time and even know some of the same people. It wouldn’t be totally inconceivable for them to cross paths at some point, and recent comments from Kevin Feige suggest they may do just that. If you’re holding out hope for the either group to join forces with the X-Men, however, you’re ...

The Union Jack will be flying over Broadway big-time this coming season, as talk heats up about bringing Bill Nighy, Carey Mulligan and the acclaimed National Theatre revival of David Hare’s Skylight to New York in the spring. I wrote a few weeks ago that while the production will be telecast in the fall by NT Live, far better would be the chance to see Hare’s extraordinarily moving play — about the expired romance between an older, self ...
