James McAvoy's difficult Filth sex scenes

Oct 1 2013, 4:14am CDT | by Bang Movies

James McAvoy admits he found it difficult filming some sex scenes for his new movie 'Filth'.

The Scottish star plays corrupt police officer Bruce Robertson in John S. Baird's big screen adaptation of Irvine Welsh's twisted novel of the same name, and while he wasn't fazed by his misogynistic, drug-taking character's scheming behaviour, some of the riskier scenes proved a challenge.

Speaking at the London premiere of 'Filth' in Leicester Square last night (30.09.13), McAvoy told BANG Showbiz: ''I wasn't disturbed by anything. Except there was a scene where I had to pretend to force a 15-year-old girl to do something sexual ... and that was absolutely harrowing to do. The actress wasn't 15, she was 21, but that was really, really horrible.''

The 34-year-old actor underwent a complete make-under to portray the unhealthy middle-aged policeman as he descends into madness - a challenge he relished as he is always drawn to dark characters.

Quizzed about what draws him to disturbing roles, McAvoy said: ''The opportunity to make people look at a side of themselves that they wouldn't normally examine and cast some light on it and entertain them by making them do that.''

Despite his character's abhorrent nature, McAvoy wanted to give him some humanity in his desperation.

He explained: ''There's nothing redeemable. The film condemns his actions quite clearly. However, we do ask you to feel some kind of empathy for him, some sadness. To wonder what it might be like to be in his shoes.''

Best-selling author Welsh and leading ladies Imogen Poots and Joanne Froggatt joined McAvoy on the special blue carpet at the premiere.

‘Frankenstein’ Gets a New Title and Official Synopsis

Jun 18 2014 8:17am CDT | Source: Screen Rant

As one of the long-reigning kings of the horror genre – both in literature and film – Frankenstein is a story that has been retold countless times already and will no doubt continue to get adaptations, reboots and sequels a long way into the future. This year’s entry, Stuart Beattie’s I, Frankenstein, failed to make much of a mark and performed pretty dismally at the box office, but next year director Paul McGuigan and screenwriter Max Landis wi ...

FILTH Review

May 30 2014 1:05pm CDT | Source: Collider

Addiction can be used as a way to mask a deeper pain.  The addict can disappear into a drug-induced haze, and find a brief reprieve before real life comes crashing back in, and there's a need for a bigger fix.  Filth follows suit, but instead of using drugs to mask pain, it uses drugs to mask a shallow story and weak jokes.  Writer-director Jon S. Baird has plenty of tricks: breaking the fourth wall, throwing up graphics, frenetic cin ...
