Bryan Singer Answers Fans’ Questions About ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past'; Trailer Online Tomorrow
Bryan Singer, the director of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ took part in a live Twitter Chat earlier today and we have his X-Men-related responses below. This chat leads up to the highly anticipated world premiere of the trailer tomorrow, October 29th, at 1:00pm GMT at www.youtube.com/xmenmovies.
“Can you give us another hint at what we might see in the full trailer tomorrow?” –from Neil Sutton on Facebook
Bryan Singer: Tomorrow’s trailer is primarily a character piece, as most of our VFX are not yet finished.
FB fan Vlad Micu asks: “How was it to bring the cast of the original X-Men and the cast of X-Men First Class together in the same Movie?”
Singer: Awesome, and slightly intimidating.
#AskSinger #XMen was it challenging working with such a big varying cast?
Singer: .@lawrencer_ I was real comfortable with the original cast and knew the #FirstClass cast as a writer/producer but not yet as a director. With the exception of @NicholasHoult of course — but they were all fantastic and made the experience fun.
“What was the funniest moment on set with the entire cast?” –from Daniel Long on Facebook
Singer: In between shooting a serious scene on Xavier’s private jet, Michael, Nick, Hugh and James dancing to #BlurredLines #IHaveTheFootage
How does this movie make itself new and fresh, while still keeping the traditional feeling we all loved from the previous movies?#AskSinger
Singer: .@pluckthestrings It’s all in the cast. They are great actors who know their characters – who know how to bring them to life.
“Have you ever attempted Hugh Jackman’s legendary workout regimen?” –from Jacob Parker on Facebook
Singer: Someone tweeted that I was gaining weight, so I tried the workout… for a day.
Mystique has been a fun character to see in the movies. What can we expect to see from her in DOFP #ASKSINGER #XMEN
Singer: .@irturner She’s a much more hardened kick-ass character than she was in #FirstClass.
“What scene are you editing right now?” –From Kevin Lieu on Facebook
Singer: I’m tinkering with a piece in the opening that helps set up the story – but I’m in a good place with the cut. A bit ahead of schedule
“Mr. Singer, how would you characterize the tone and style of ‘Days of Future Past’?” –from Ben Ferguson on FB
Singer: Although there is a great deal of humor, the overall tone is a bit darker than previous films, particularly because of the stakes.
How many new x men characters are in the new film #XMen #AskSinger!
Singer: .@Jason_Payton82 A lot — Blink, Bishop, Sunspot, Warpath, Ink, Quicksilver, etc.
“Are there any practical jokers among the stars of Days Of Future Past? #XMen #AskSinger” –from Charlene John Crisp on Facebook
Singer: Yes. Two words. James. McAvoy. #IHaveTheFootageOnMyiPhone
#x-men #AskSinger What is it, do you think, that keeps drawing you back to the X-Men? Also… Welcome back!
Singer: .@TPF1138 I love the the characters. There’s always a new place to go in the #XMen universe. #TimeTravel #Sentinels
Is their any X-Men character that you haven’t used that you would like to? #AskSinger #XMen
Singer: .@Bmike3030 Yeah, Gambit, Deadpool, and a few others I’d rather not mention.
#xmen #AskSinger Stylistically, First Class echoed the Bond movies of the 60’s. Should we expect DoFP to echo 70’s cinema in some fashion?
Singer: .@TPF1138 Yes, in the colors, some of the style & music. I also used 16 & 8mm footage which I operated myself for some scenes which was fun.
“Will we finally get to see the sentinels in action?” –from Brandon Williams on Facebook
Set for a May 23rd, 2014 release date, the film has the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning actor Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) playing the main antagonist in the film, Bolivar Trask. With Bryan Singer merging past and present ‘X-Men’ actors for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the director has Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Halle Berry (Storm), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) returning for film – which is ostensibly a sequel to ‘X-Men: First Class,’ but will prominently feature actors from the first ‘X-Men’ trilogy.
Additionally, Hugh Jackman will be playing Wolverine again, and Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart reprise their roles as Magneto and Professor X, with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy playing younger versions of the same characters in the film. Seeds of a tie-in between the trilogies were sown when Jackman cameoed as Wolverine in ‘X-Men: First Class.’ Jennifer Lawrence, Omar Sy, Fan Bingbing, Booboo Stewart, Adan Canto, Josh Helman, Evan Peters and Nicholas Hoult also star.
Bryan Singer launched the’ X-Men’ movie franchise with the first two films, ‘X-Men’ and ‘X2,’ and has been a guiding influence in each subsequent X-Men film by producing. Matthew Vaughn, director of ‘X-Men: First Class,’ will produce ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ with his fellow co-writer on the film, Simon Kinberg, and Lauren Shuler Donner. The screenplay is written by Kinberg, Vaughn, and Jane Goldman, with Singer writing the story. ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ will be based on a classic comic book story arc that unfolded in two issues of Marvel Comics’ ‘Uncanny X-Men’ in 1981, from writer Chris Claremont and artists John Byrne and Terry Austin. The synopsis for the film is as follows.
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
