Hugh Jackman teases X-Men 'fun'

Sep 19 2013, 12:12am CDT | by Bang Movies

Hugh Jackman's Wolverine will have ''fun'' with Michael Fassbender's Magneto in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.

The actor has revealed the time-bending movie will allow for some humorous scenes when his clawed superhero travels back in time to save the mutant race.

Jackman has only ever acted opposite Sir Ian McKellen's elder version of villain Magneto in the original 'X-Men' trilogy, but will come face-to-face with Fassbender's younger incarnation in the new film.

He told MTV News: ''It's fair to say we don't get on that well. I get sent back to the past and he has no idea who I am, but you can imagine Wolverine has a bit of fun with that.''

The blockbuster movie directed by Bryan Singer will see stars from the two 'X-Men' franchises - the original trilogy and 'X-Men: First Class' - unite, with Jackman being joined by Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Halle Berry and a host of other A-list actors.

However, he insists the movie isn't just a money-grabbing attempt to copy Marvel's superhero team-up movie, 'The Avengers'.

Jackman said: ''I think some people are saying, 'Ah, this just sounds like an excuse to get all these actors together and make an 'Avengers'-style movie.' But the truth is that it's a great script and Bryan is very ambitious to make the best movie of them all. He's got the biggest cast, the biggest budget, and he started it all, so it's his legacy. He's a fan of time-travel movies, and the detail that's gone into it is incredible.

''I'm quietly confident that it will be the biggest and the best of them all. When I sat there on that panel at Comic Con, and looked down at all the actors, you think, 'This might be one of the best ensembles ever assembled.' ''

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 ro ...

Comic-Con: Sam Raimi Vamps ‘Last Of Us’ Movie At Screen Gems Panel

Jul 25 2014 2:21pm CDT | Source: Deadline

Screen Gems today trotted out a Comic-Con god in Sam Raimi, who dealt the kind of catnip that fanboys love. Raimi was there with Neil Druckmann, creator of the Naughy Dog game Last Of Us, to talk about how that vidgame is being turned into a feature with Raimi producing, and Druckmann writing the screenplay. Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper, whose previous big vidgame to movie transfer was Resident Evil, has basically given over big creative controls to Druckmann in the mov ...

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 story of a robot which is 'kidnapped' into a loving, doting family ...

Jul 22 2014 9:55pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

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 below. Thanks to Collider for these images. The poster ...

Very little is known about District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp’s new film Chappie besides the fact that it revolves around a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters, and producer Simon Kinberg called it “the most provocative studio movie you’ll likely ever see.”  Well it looks like Sony Pictures is ready to unveil this curious pic to the public, as the first look at the titular robot (played by Sharlto Copley) has been unveiled at San Die ...

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, ...

’90s Redux: Bill Nighy May Be Broadway-Bound In Hare’s ‘Skylight’; `Master Class’ Helmer Mike Nichols Talks Shop for HBO

Jul 11 2014 9:58am CDT | Source: Deadline

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-made businessman an ...

Will Rogue fans see her scenes restored?Though X-Men: Days Of Future Past has been a big success, one group of mutant fans were unhappy with how their favourite character appeared in the film. Which is to say: briefly. Now it appears those who wanted to see more of Anna Paquin’s power-siphoning Rogue may just get their wish, because producer Lauren Shuler Donner answered a question about a director’s cut on Twitter with prom ...
