As expected, James McAvoy showed up in Hall H yesterday during the 20th Century Fox Panel, to discuss not one but two of his upcoming films – “Victor Frankenstein” with Daniel Radcliffe (the official Twitter account @Frankenstein has now been launched along with the hashtag #VictorFrankenstein) and of course, “X-Men: Apocalypse”. The first few images have been added to the gallery, with hopefully plenty more on the way!
Ahead of his appearance at Comic-Con this weekend, James McAvoy took part in a portrait session with “Victor Frankenstein” co-star Daniel Radcliffe. Thanks to the lovely Luciana, we have the shoot in glorious HQ for your viewing.
The 20th Century Fox presentation is taking place at Hall H this evening, so expect James to pop up at some point!
The first official still of James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe from their upcoming film “Victor Frankenstein” has been released. Interestingly, the site that posted the still (Entertainment Weekly) listed the post under the tag of ‘Comic Con’ – maybe the film will have a panel or a sneak peek at the event? Stay tuned!
Starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, “Victor Frankenstein” was originally scheduled to hit theaters in candy corn season, but the big screen adaptation of Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel will now come out when pumpkin pie and turkey are on the menu.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has moved the theatrical release of “Victor Frankenstein” from Friday, October 2nd to Wednesday, November 25th—the day before Thanksgiving.
20th Century Fox swapped “Victor Frankenstein” with Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” on the calendar, placing the Matt Damon-starring sci-fi film in the October 2nd slot to put some distance between the ambitious project and the crammed cinematic scene of Thanksgiving week (“Creed”, “The Good Dinosaur”, and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2” are all slated to hit the big screen between November 20th – 25th).
Directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) from a script written by Max Landis (Chronicle), Victor Frankenstein stars McAvoy, Radcliffe, Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, and Freddie Fox.
Production continues on 20th Century Fox’s summer 2016 mutant ensemble, “X-Men: Apocalypse”, and director Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to reveal an event that has been long in the making since James McAvoy was cast as Charles Xavier in “X-Men: First Class”: the character’s traditional bald head.
McAvoy leads a cast for the film that also includes Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult along with the return of Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Lucas Till as Havok and newcomers Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Ben Hardy as Angel, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Lana Condor as Jubilee G, and Olivia Munn as Psylocke. Oscar Isaac is starring as the film’s title antagonist with Simon Kinberg scripting from a treatment by Mike Dougherty, Dan Harris and Kinberg.
Said to be the conclusion of a trilogy started with “X-Men: First Class” and continued with “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, the Bryan Singer directed “X-Men: Apocalypse” is set for release on May 27, 2016.
I have just uploaded scans of James McAvoy from June’s digital issue of Empire, which has an exclusive look at James’ upcoming film “Victor Frankenstein”. Thanks to Luciana from Jessica Chastain Network for the donation!
Empire has just posted two exclusive behind the scenes images of James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe from the set of their new film “Victor Frankenstein”.
Alongside McAvoy and Radcliffe, “Victor Frankenstein” will boast the acting talents of Mark Gatiss, Jessica Brown Findlay and Andrew Scott when it hits our screens on October 2, 2015.
On behalf of the site and the fans, I would like to wish James McAvoy a very happy 36th birthday today. I hope he has a fantastic day with his loved ones, and we all look forward to seeing his projects in the upcoming year.
The Olivier Awards are currently taking place in London, and James McAvoy hit the red carpet with his wife Ann-Marie Duff, as James was nominated for the Best Actor award for his role in “The Ruling Class” whilst Ann-Marie was set to present. Unfortunately James did not win the award (congratulations to Mark Strong who won for his role in “A View From The Bridge”), but having seen him perform in “The Ruling Class” this week, I can vouch for it being one of the most extraordinary performances I’ve seen – and possibly better than his turn in “Macbeth” in 2013! The first few pictures from the red carpet are currently being uploaded to the gallery, with more on the way shortly.
