Virgin Trains’ ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Unwrapping

X-Men: Days of Future Past might still be two months away from hitting theaters, but that isn’t stopping Fox from doing some early promotional work for the movie. Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy joined forces in London earlier today, March 31st, to help Virgin unveil a new train sporting an array of iconic mutants. Photos from the event have been added to the gallery. Check out an article about the “unwrapping” below (including some quotes from Hugh), as well a couple of videos below the cut.

Hugh, 45, admitted getting a train with his face emblazoned on it was a far cry from his earlier days when he backpacked around Europe.

“It’s some sort of wish fulfilment in life, when you’re a young boy, to walk onto your own train. I pretty much lived on trains (before), because when I was 18, I got an InterRail card. It was about £250 and I was on £10 a day, so we slept on trains,” he said.

“I was that smelly guy in the corner, just outside the bathroom that people would have to step over. I would be swearing and drinking with my mates, so I got kicked off from many a train.”

The Australian actor joked about his co-star appearing on the first class carriage, with his own carriage located further back, saying: “I think it’s totally appropriate that he’s first class and I’m way up the back. It’s pretty wild.”

[…]

“It is epic-ness, it is huge on a scale, not just visually but emotionally. Character and relationship-wise, it is quite epic with what we all go through,” James teased.

Hugh added: “It is massive. It is by far the biggest. I had this unbelievable opportunity to work with not only James, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, but the older actors playing the same characters – Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Ellen Page. It was unbelievable, and the story is intricate. It is fun, it is massive and I think it is going to deliver beyond what people expect.”

Hugh “in Talks” to Star as Blackbeard in Joe Wright’s ‘Pan’

Hugh Jackman is in negotiations to play the villainous pirate Blackbeard in Warner Bros.’ forthcoming Peter Pan origin film, Pan. Joe Wright is directing the adventure tale from a script by Jason Fuchs.

WB had gone to Javier Bardem for the role but the actor passed and the studio pursued Jackman shortly after that.

Jackman had been in discussions for a handful of films before committing to Pan, including the antagonist in Warner Bros. The Incredible Mr. Limpet remake.

The origin story [Pan] revolves around an orphan who is taken to the magical world of Neverland where he becomes a hero to the natives and leads a revolt against the evil pirates. The idea is that Blackbeard is the film’s main antagonist, while Hook would serve as Pan’s close ally before turning bad. Ryan Gosling was someone the studio had looked at among others for the part.

As for the title character, the studio is expected to do an open casting and find a discovery for the role. The studio is also looking for an actress in her mid-20s to play Tiger Lily.
