Patrick Stewart and Ellen Page Talk X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, Ian McKellen, How the Project Came Together, Future X-MEN Movies, and More

     May 29, 2014


Now playing in theaters around the world is director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.  As most of you know, Days of Future Past finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  The film also takes place in the future, so we’re going to see the original X-Men cast and what will happen if Wolverine fails.  For more on the film, watch these five clips and nine minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, read Matt’s review, or  click here for all of our coverage.

At the New York City press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Patrick Stewart and Ellen Page.  They talked about how the project came together, deleted scenes, whether they want to do another X-Men movie, Stewart’s friendship with Ian McKellen, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.

And if you missed my video interviews with Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg, or Peter Dinklage, click the links.

    I don’t care how it happened. I am just glad it did happen. I do wish that there had been more of the future scenes though, which is why I would absolutely love to see the Rogue Rescue scenes, if they are completed.

    I am actually planning on buying a copy of this movie. Which is shocking because the only movie I’ve ever bought before is Transformers Dark of the Moon, which at the time was one of the few decent 3D movies available, but it is just such a difficult movie to watch.

    Smith… I would like you to meet our newest applicant. This is Ellen Page. She may look like she would be a beast in the sack, but it turns out she doesn’t go that way sexually… so don’t get any ideas.

    Wow, now I wish they would continue with the future storyline. Even though Apocalypse sounds cool with the young cast and all, I just love the original cast and think a good story could really warrant a singular installment of them in future.

      I’d love that, but I’m not too hopeful…DoFP really felt like a farewell to the old cast. We’ll see, but I just have my doubts.

    3 minutes 9 seconds: Awkwardly breaking it to Stewart that one of his scenes has been cut without his knowledge.

  • Brian James

    Fassbender Magneto was worth the price of admission alone. Good flick overall, better than expected, even though I tend to like most of SIngers films.
