The gallery has just been updated with 471 Blu-Ray screen captures of James McAvoy from “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her”, the final film from our “Eleanor Rigby” trilogy. This version of the film is from Eleanor’s perspective, so there are fewer scenes that include James, though again there are also alternative and re-imagined scenes which you can’t find in “Them” or “Him”.
The gallery has just been updated with 1,313 Blu-Ray screen captures of James McAvoy from “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him”. This version of the film is from Conor’s perspective, so there are a lot of additional scenes which you won’t find in “Her” or “Them”.
The gallery has just been updated with 1,232 gorgeous Blu-Ray quality screen captures of James McAvoy from his 2014 drama “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them”. All three versions of the film are now available on iTunes, and screen captures from all versions will be added to the site.
I’ve just updated the gallery with additional stills, posters and on set images of James from “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby”.

It has been announced that James McAvoy will sit on the main jury at this year’s BFI London Film Festival, and that his latest film The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, will also been screening as part of its UK premiere:
On the official competition jury, Thomas will be joined by rising Egyptian director and last year’s best film award nominee Ahmad Abdalla (who also has his film Decor in the program), Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins, producer Lorna Tee, X-Men star James McAvoy and Variety chief film critic Scott Foundas.
The festival also announced that The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby would be joining its lineup of screenings. The U.K. premiere of the McAvoy and Jessica Chastain-starring drama is set to take place on Oct. 17 at the Odeon West End in London’s Leicester Square, with McAvoy and director Ned Benson set to attend.
Perhaps Andy Warhol’s famous saying holds true that “one’s company, two’s a crowd, and three’s a party.”
At least, if you ask Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy the stars of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, in theaters on Friday, and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her, opening Oct. 10.
Them tells the tale of the couple, and the fallout from their breakup, while Him focuses on the story of Conor and Her focuses on the same story but told from the perspective of his wife, Eleanor.
It’s the combined version of the first two films, Him and Her, each of them focusing on the demise of a relationship from the point of view of a grieving husband and a suicidal wife. They gambol, flirt, frolic, and then, appear to self-destruct in very disparate ways. The horrifying cause is revealed midway through the film, in a scene that’s breathtaking in its candor and simplicity.
There’s a fine line between turning a romantic film into something unique and letting it slip into the void of Hallmark cheese. Thankfully, “The Disappearance Eleanor Rigby” aims for the former. In order to separate it from other like-minded projects, writer-director Ned Benson got risky. He split the film into two separate narratives, titling them “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her,” respectively. The finished product gives us a glimpse at the depths of heartbreak. Overall, it’s a tragic, emotional and ambitious project, anchored by two wonderful performances from actors Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy. (For those un-interested in watching the full 202-minute version of the movie, a combined two-hour cut, entitled “Them,” is also getting a release this week.)
I spoke with McAvoy (the film’s ‘Him‘) in New York recently about the film(s). We discussed everything from the story’s dark material to the difficulties of shooting two scripts at the same time (something McAvoy didn’t realize was happening until he got on set) to his upcoming role in “Frankenstein.” I also shamelessly asked the Scottish-born actor about the enduring legacy of “Braveheart” in America, which seems to be shown every weekend on TNT.
I feel like we mostly hear you do English accents on screen. It was fun hearing you with an American accent in this film.
Yeah, when was the last time I did an American one?
“The Conspirator,” I think?
“The Conspirator.” And “Wanted.” I think that’s the only other one. Oh and “Band of Brothers.”
James McAvoy and Eleanor Rigby director Ned Benson are set to do a live interview tonight with the Huffington Post, and you can listen to it over on their site. You can also tweet your comments and questions to James and Ned via that page.
