Fox, producer Bryan Singer, and the writing and directing team that included Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn did some deep playing around with the onscreen X-Men franchise in X-Men: First Class. The film recast several primary characters, as it told a story from their youth, but also did a few things that contradicted the existing X-Men movies in a notable way.
Not a big deal for some audiences, but for a continuity-obsessed fan base — one encouraged by the notably knotted timeline of comics featuring the mutant characters — there was a lot to think about.
The next film in the series, X-Men: Days of Future Past, seems like it might address some of those continuity issues. It brings the First Class cast (James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult) into a story that also features original actors Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, as well as Hugh Jackman, whose First Class cameo was one of those little kinks of continuity. How will the older actors be integrated into a story dominated by the younger cast? You probably know by this point that Days of Future Past jumps back and forth on the timeline, and that’s the key. But it sounds like there might not be too much interaction between the old and young cast. Read More »

As Django Unchained prepares for its year-end release, news has broken about one more addition to the already star-studded cast. Rex Linn, who plays Tennessee Harry in the film, recently revealed that Quentin Tarantino himself would appear in a small role — as he has in several of his other directorial efforts, including Inglourious Basterds, Death Proof, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs.
“Quentin told me that he liked the scene so much he wanted to be in it, too, and that he would also be taking some of my lines,” Linn told Look At OKC. “So, you’ll know the scenes when you see them. We’ll be on the screen with Don Johnson and Jonah Hill. The scenes may not be long, but you will remember them.” [via The Playlist]
After the jump: Patrick Stewart might be Professor X again, Kevin James is spotted lurking around the wolf pack, and Skrillex becomes a Disney character.
