Earlier on this year James made a cameo in Muppets Most Wanted as “UPS Guy”. I’ve managed to grab a few Blu-Ray quality screen captures of his appearance in the film.

At long last, we finally have our first real look at The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. It looks as though this is the trailer for the ‘full’ version of the film, but it’s still absolutely gorgeous. Watch it in full below:

James’ upcoming Frankenstein film has now been given the official title of Victor Frankenstein, and an official synopsis which you can read below:
James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man—and the legend—we know today.
The film has been given a release date of October 02, 2015.

ThePlaylist have posted a really interesting article comparing and exploring the changes between Eleanor Rigby: Him & Her (the original Toronto versions) versus Eleanor Rigby: Them, the version that was screened at Cannes on Saturday.
As you know by now, the origin story of this film is unlikely to be repeated. At TIFF last year, Ned Benson premiered his conceptual feature film debut as a three-hour emotional journey of a break-up split in two parts: ‘Him’ and ‘Her’. Harvey Weinstein acquired the rights, and with no release date in sight, fear from fans (myself included) was that Harvey Scissorhands was going to force Benson into cutting the film down. Seemingly, that’s exactly what happened because a two-hour version, subtitled ‘Them,’ premiered in the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes. In something of a welcoming twist, however, Benson says he wanted this third combined perspective, and all three versions will see a theatrical release this fall. But, for someone who has seen and loved the first (and second?) version(s) at TIFF, this didn’t help to ease my anxiety when I sat down to watch the combined version at Cannes. Read on to find out what the major differences between the two presentations are, and which one we think works better.
