Two clips from The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby have appeared online – both have been seen in various trailers but now we have both scenes uncut. Also, there is a Q&A with director Ned Benson and Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy today in New York along with an advanced screening of the film so hopefully some images or video clips will show up shortly.

James is appearing on the cover of Nylon Guys‘ September issue, which has a brand new photoshoot as well. Hopefully scans will surface soon, but check out the shoot in the gallery and read more on the interview over at

On his career: “For a long time, I was playing the normal guy in an exceptional world, or the normal guy who was in a relationship with someone much more weird and interesting. I was holding the audience’s hand, guiding them into a world they weren’t familiar with, keeping them onside when things got grotesque. Basically I was letting everybody else do the fireworks.”

On his past roles: “The last two or three years have been so unlike what I was doing for the 10 years before them. There’s a part I’ve been offered and really want to do, but I was worried about taking it because the character is a proper mental case. And I feel like it’s been a couple of years of solely playing mental cases.”

Michael Fassbender on James’ X-Men set pranks: “Oh, he’s lethal! You’ll find him hiding underneath cars, waiting for you. He once tried to break into my trailer through the skylight. It’s like being in one of those Pink Panther films, and he’s Cato jumping out of the freezer. Just when you think the day’s over, you come home to find James sitting on your toilet with a BB gun.”

August 7th, 2014   Eleanor Rigby, News Comments Off

Well, this is a project that has seen many, many tweaks, but now it looks as though the full version of the film (originally titled The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them but now looks to be The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him/Her) will be getting released in October!

To clarify, ‘Them’ is the condensed version that opens on Sept. 26th, and today, The Weinstein Company announced that “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him/Her” (yes, a slight title retweak) will be screened it its entirety (which is a little over three hours) and released in select theaters on October 10th. The film co-stars James McAvoy and has largely received rave reviews. – Source

All I can say is when is the UK getting all three of these films?!

August 5th, 2014   News, X-Men: Days of Future Past Comments Off

Even with home video sales continuing on a downward trajectory, Hollywood seems bound and determined to follow the same playbook they have used since the early ’80s introduction of the VCR. So even though “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” will be available digitally on September 23rd and on Blu-ray on October 14th, Fox has just announced that you’re better off not bothering with either if you want the extra bells and whistles.

Last month, franchise producer Lauren Donner Shuler mentioned that a director’s cut of ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past‘ would be coming later this year. Now, Fox’s EVP of Marketing Communications, James Finn, has clarified, saying the first upcoming ‘DOFP‘ release will be have a theatrical release, with the extended cut dropping in 2015. So forget about that noise for the moment, and let the speculation on what all the extra material might be commence.

We already know Rogue had a much larger part, with an extended sequence where she absorbed Kitty Pryde’s powers after the latter was accidentally injured by Wolverine, which leaves Logan in the past longer than intended. There was also another subplot involving Professor X, Magneto, and Iceman embarking on a mission to rescue Rogue from the Sentinels. What more could there be? Considering that nearly every actor playing every character in the history of the X-film franchise was available, perhaps quite a lot.
