Who wants a ticket to see James McAvoy’s MACBETH play?
I have a ticket for an EXCELLENT seat (only 4 rows from the stage) for the April 23rd performance and sadly I can no longer go. I’ve already confirmed with the theatre that I can transfer the ticket to a third party, so…. anyone want to buy my ticket off of me? The ticket is 110$ (Canadian) and can be picked up directly at the box office on the night of the play.
If you are interested in this ticket, please send me an ASK and we’ll go from there. Thanks! :D
So apparently Vaughn DID feature the Hellfire club Brotherhood members in his version of the FC2 script
And then Singer took them out. Presumably to make way for his gigantic X4 cast. What an idiot. If the basis of this story is that the X-Men have to prevent a terrible future set in motion by the Brotherhood, how the hell are they going to accomplish that with 2 people on each team? Especially since, unless Singer has screwed this up even more (lolol impossible), neither Raven nor Erik would be willing to fight Charles. And a battle of these two vs Beast would be over very very fast.
I have this horrible feeling that what is actually going to happen is a bizzare melding of the eras. Singer keeps refuting the term time TRAVEL, so maybe there’s a tear in the space-time continuum, or a portal gets opened, and Sentinels AND the OT X-Men get transported to 1973. Either way I’m sure Singer with his endless love for Wolverine, will find a way to put him in both timelines. Joy.
Fuck I wish Vaughn was still directing this.
In the first GOOD news of the movie, it sounds like Charles will have some angst and pain to deal with.
It’s not much Singer, but it’s a start.
James has read the DOFP script
I know I said no more DOFP stuff. A friend of mine messaged me on Facebook tho with news that suggests Havok and Banshee will be absent from the movie along with all the secondary FC Brotherhood members (what the actual FUCK, singer, you could not make it MORE obvious that this movie is reluctant to involve anything/anyone from a movie you didn’t have total directorial control over, can you please stop pissing on everything GREAT Vaughn did that was such an improvement from your lousy Movies…)
Anywho. So I went looking for GOOD news (for THIS movie??? Lololol) and found and interview with james, who has finally read the script. Here’s what he has to say:
…is it just me or does he not sound enthused? He’s using very removed language, not really talking about HIS feelings on it, talking more about the audience instead. Or maybe I’m just reading into it too much because i can’t fathom a cast this large and this X1-3-devoted will offer a lot of character development to anyone. Avengers had SEVEN major characters and none of them had character arcs. DOFP has what, 16 major characters?
Sigh. I wish it was 2014 already so i could just see it and rip the bandaid off and stop worryong.
James McAvoy - MTV Movie Awards skits/interview (X)
Every time I wonder if Cherik is all in my head I remember THIS FRIGGING interview. James gets it.
Arguably the most amusing re-telling of the infamous McFassy “golf cart incident” taken from this interview. Best part? When Michael vocally imitates James.
Haha, I’ve never heard this before! Michael’s impression of James is so cute, and actually really good.
Reblogging so I can listen to it later :) I wanna hear Michael take on James’s accent.
Bloody adorable. I’d love to hear an interview where they swap accents for some/most/all of the interview. I’d love to hear James do a delicate Killarney accent and Fassy do the pervy-yet-charming-Scot voice.
(sorry for the rough sketchiness, did it all in like 45mins)
disclaimer: I KNOW James has incredibly brilliant ideas for the sequel and the characters. I just wanted to have a little fun with this, I drew it after people got miffed that Fassy met solo with Kinberg about the XMFC2 script. ;)
Ok guys, you might need to bear with me tonight. Probably more coming? (I think?)
My friend 馬仲蛋 went to see James McAvoy today. When I failed to spot him during my trip to New York, she kindly offered to help me, so I left the art and poster in the hotel front desk and she went picking up after work XD. She said James was really happy to get it, and pointing out each character to his co-actors. When she asked him to pose and take picture with my art, he kept making funny faces XD
OMG!!! congratz PAla!!!! i’m sure he’s so happy with your cutie works and i’m both so jealous n happy for u~!!!
So perffffffffffff!!!!!! Heeeeeeeeee!
AWESOME. So glad he got your art in the end :) (and totally jealous hahaha)
Alas, Erik’s training sequence didn’t end this way! BLERG! (X)
This actually was one of the main things that convinced me Cherik was real and something James totally ships. I mean why else would this “training” turn so homoerotic?
He’s his own Golden Boy, he doesn’t need Hollywood. At least not in the same way Fassbender seems to need it.
As a fan I certainly would like to see James getting the recognition he deserves for his wonderful acting, and if the producers of the next film are not interested in Charles story because they think James isn’t “hollywood enough” then I think they’re making a big mistake. Their (and our) loss.
….James doesn’t need Hollywood the way that Hollywood Golden Boy Fassbender does.
….but he should get the recognition he deserves [thus becoming a Hollywood Golden Boy].
What would it be like to live in a world where Michael Fassbender got the same recognition as his cock? I wonder…
The thing is, I’m not really into Fassbender…or his penis. :P
Both reached the saturation point for moi…yep.
I understand. I most…
Maybe Fassbender should try not taking his clothes off in every photoshoot he does? I don’t know. Sometimes I think that, deep down, he’s really proud that everybody is talking about his penis or his body. He could always say “look, not going to talk about this anymore, I’m promoting my new film, blah blah”, but sometimes it seems he just adds fuel to the fire, imo.
Plus, sometimes people talk as if he were the first actor brave enough to do a full frontal - like he was a pioneer or something, and was punished by the Academy because of it. Which is BS. Male nudity is not that uncommon in films, so I never understood all that fuss about his nudity in Shame. :-\
Wow, are we ever in agreement on the photoshoot business. I don’t honestly believe he’s so dumb and malleable that a photographer can say, “Maybe, I don’t know…you prop your foot up and I shot your crotch?” that his response is “Um, duh, OK, if you say so!” He’s a current sex symbol, and milking it for all it’s worth. Unfortunately, you can’t expect everyone to be an adult and take you seriously after that. Maybe grandmas weren’t all wrong when they told you to not wear too much rouge, and to sit like a proper lady.
(And the Oscar/Shame brew-haha? I remained quiet during that because I honestly don’t give a shit if you’re nominated or not.)
Exactly. Agree with everything, my dear. ;)
When you reach a point in your career, you have a certain amount of power to say: “not going to do another naked photoshoot, thank you. Enough. I’m promoting my sci-fi film here.”
There’s nothing wrong with nudity, of course; but I like the idea of limits, and good sense. Sometimes Fassbender seems too eager to achieve a certain status too quickly, and he loves the adulation even if he tries to be all modest about it. Just my humble opinion…
Also, the hypocrisy of our society baffles me. If it were a woman promoting her films with one “bare all” photoshoot after the other, or talking about her vagina in each and every interview she did, things would be really different. An actor like Fassbender is seen as “brave”. An actress would probably be called a whore. Sad.
You know, we’ve butted heads a lot and frankly I find your Charles comments completely nonsensical and your, um, “dedication” to James McAvoy kind of scary, but I actually agree with a lot of what you’ve said here (minus the anti-Fassbender tone). Fassbender has incredible publicists because he wants the spotlight. And it’s worked, a YEAR ago no one knew who he was and now he’s one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood. I really adore him, I think he’s a brilliant actor. But I often feel like a lot of this attention came not only from the fact that he’s attractive, but that his penis is pretty impressive and bared several times for all to see in Steve McQueen’s movies. For a time I was getting annoyed that this is all that people were seeing of him, and thought that if *I* was getting ticked, he must be extremely sick of it.
But you raise good points about his choice of photography. There’s the famous shot of him opening his jeans to reveal a significant lack of underwear underneath. Then there’s the recent GQ one which involves him in highly sexualized poses with a model. It’s a strange paradox, this actor who wants to be seen for his talent (and talented, is he ever). He’s not the one bringing up his genitalia in interviews, it’s everyone else making the comments and he’s being good-natured about it. It’s got to tick him off that he’s dealing with “Seneca’s beard syndrome” but you’re right when you say that the photos are not doing much to help his case. These types of shoots, as much as my lustful heart loves them, doesn’t really represent the message he seems to be trying to get across (“I am more than my penis”).
Also you make a really good point about men vs women. If a woman bared all in a film in a scene that wasn’t sexualized, and then went on to do nude photoshoots that bordered erotic, she’d be labeled a slut immediately and society would have a
hard impossible time seeing her talent past her breasts. I’m not sure why our culture is so afraid of dicks that showing one warrants so much attention. How many times have we seen women do full-frontals in movies, TV shows? How many of those have actually shown a naked man without a conveniently-placed foreground object to hide his manhood? The second it happens it gets an article in a gossip rag or a “warning” in a review. It’s sad.
So, see I actually somewhat agree with you. Now don’t go and ruin this by hating on Fassbender needlessly for this reason. I am absolutely positive that if James McAvoy was doing the exact same thing you’d find a way to herald it as “brilliant”, “sensitive” and indeed, “brave”.
