While we await a new full-length trailer for the film (which is expected shortly), CinePlex has revealed this behind-the-scenes featurette for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ The stacked ensemble cast for the hugely anticipated film includes Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Nicholas Hoult, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Evan Joingket and Lucas Till. ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ acts as a sequel to both 2006′s ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and 2011′s ‘X-Men: First Class,’ as well as a follow-up to 2013′s ‘The Wolverine.’
The Guardian has set loose this first trailer for the upcoming offbeat comedy ‘Frank,’ undoubtedly one of my most anticipated films of 2014. Directed by Lenny Abrahamson (What Richard Did, Garage, Adam & Paul), the film is penned by Jon Ronson (The Men Who Stare at Goats) and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). ‘Frank’ stars Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gylenhaal, Scoot McNairy and Michael Fassbender as the titular character, a brilliant and eccentric musician who wears a giant papier–mache head at all times. ‘Frank’ is released in the UK on May 9th, the week of my birthday – good stuff!
Domhnall Gleeson plays Jon, a wannabe musician who finds himself out of his depth when he joins a maverick pop band led by the enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender)—a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head—and his terrifying sidekick Clara (Maggie Gylenhaal). It is a fictional story loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey, as well as other outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart.

Based on the unforgettable memoir that exposed the inner workings of slavery in the 19th Century, comes ’12 Years A Slave,’ director Steve McQueen’s mesmerizing and incredibly moving account of New York family man Solomon Northup’s (Chiwetel Ejiofor) unexpected kidnapping, his dizzying journey into Louisiana’s slave plantations, and his unbreakable quest to get home to those he loves. ’12 Years a Slave’ stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o, Alfre Woodard, Paul Dano, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ruth Negga, Adepero Oduye, Paul Giamatti, Garret Dillahunt, Sarah Paulson, Scoot McNairy, Dwight Henry, Quvenzhané Wallis, and Michael Kenneth Williams.
’12 Years a Slave’ marks your feature film debut in a role that I can’t imagine could have demanded more of an enormous emotional commitment. Without giving anything away, there’s so much complexity to Patsey…?
Lupita Nyong’o: Definitely! For me, Patsey was such an incredible woman in the script. I was so excited about the opportunity to bring her back to life. She’s described as being agile and genial and pleasantly tempered and the hardest worker, but at the same time she wishes for her death. That kind of complexity is one an actor can only dream of playing. And to know that she was a real women just made it even more humbling and more inspiring to do. For me, the thing that I loved most about Patsey is that she experiences so much pain, but she was always working through it, not wallowing in it. That kind of strength is so inspiring, and I wanted to play her with agency and dignity.
