Director Bryan Singer recently took to Twitter to answer several fan questions about his upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past. He doesn't really go into any crazy detail on anything, but tomorrow the first trailer comes out, and from what I've seen of the movie, I imagine it's going to blow fans away. The trailer will be released at 6am tomorrow morning so stay turned!
Here is the Q&A fan session:
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
Singer: Yes. :)
The movie stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, and a lot more. It will be released on May 23rd, 2014.
