Good, First Class had a great thing going on and they have to continue it.
I liked first class but honestly this movie looks completely mediocre. I feel kinda sorry that Fassbender and McAvoy are stuck slumming on these productions because they are actually pretty talented but these movies are completely beneath them. But I guess doing a shit X-men movie allows you to still get paid and then have time to do something like Filth or Shame.
Daily reminder the worst part of the last two movies is back in an expanded starring role and she doesn't appear ONCE in the blue make-up in the trailer or any cast or set photos thus far.
She's not going, she claims she's scared it'll give her skin cancer or some shit. She's just going to shapeshift from Jennifer Lawrences to whatever from now on. This is why actresses will never be on the same level as actors and why she's quite possibly the most overrated actor of all time.
Eh... it wasn't that great. It was mostly nostalgia for the first couple of movies if we're honest. You knew none of the deaths would stick, you knew the good guys would win and specifically which of them would survive, it was very much beats by the numbers.
Plus the sentinels looked like shit clouds and iMacs.
Eh, most people loved it. It has the highest rated movie yet and made the most money. Most people will disagree with you. It doesn't matter you could figure out things would resolve by the end because it was still a good movie. Not everything has to be twists or surprise deaths.
>I feel kinda sorry that Fassbender and McAvoy are stuck slumming on these productions because they are actually pretty talented but these movies are completely beneath them.
As far as British actors are concerned, there is no such thing as "slumming it" above amateur porn. So feel sorry for the Irish-German Fassbender all you want, but know that McAvoy, as a proud Scot, is just happy to be there.
>this is why actresses will never be on the same level as actors
My nigga, Alan Turring didn't even want to return after X2 because of all the make-up.
Hugo "I'll do anything for a paycheque" Weaving was being a little bitch even though they only did make-up on his face.
>Not everything has to be twists or surprise deaths.
That's what I'm saying. It was trying to be twists and surprise deaths. It was just so plodding and predictable that it couldn't manage it.
And it remains to be seen how much of that money is JLaw money and how much was, genuinely, people who liked the old movies coming to see it alongside people who liked the new ones.
If we're talking about the same team being behind Apocalypse? Fine, but you need to recognise the money being high and the praise going up with it doesn't mean anything as far as sequels are concerned; just ask Superman. Until DoFP the most successful X-Men movie was X3; it's still the second-highest earner.
Anon probably means either contact dermatitis (an external reaction which can lead to permanent scarring) or an allergic reaction; if it's a natural rubber latex-based paint, that's a very valid concern. The last thing anybody wants in their 20s is to develop a lifelong sensitivity to NRL and the risks to health associated with fucking up your immune system through sensitization to allergens.
>It was just so plodding and predictable that it couldn't manage it.

That's because the hype was high after X2 and afterwards the franchise needed to regain peoples' trust.
>And it remains to be seen how much of that money is JLaw money and how much was, genuinely, people who liked the old movies coming to see it alongside people who liked the new ones.
kek nah man no one gives a fuck about JLaw being in these. The studio pushes her more but that's not why people go to see X-Men movies. Her character is one of the least interesting of the bunch. Most people forget she's in them until they go see the films. I would say most of the audience was hyped to see the old and new casts together.
Yeah I did, I was typing as I was standing up to go poop.
Also whenever I think of him now I think of that Shia LaBeouf story where he gets his name wrong while he tells the story about slapping his ass in the middle of Cabaret.
How does this compare in your opinions, fellow anons?
>standing up to go poop
geez, how messy is that to clean your crevice?
I've grown the like Sansa the past couple of seasons, honestly. I like the notion that she might survive just by playing the helpless victim while everyone else kills eachother.
Are they in the same universe?
Oh that pisses me off so fucking much. AND SHE FUCKING COMPLAINS ABOUT NOT GETTING PAID MORE.
Yes, Jennifer, you actually have to DO YOUR GODDAMN JOB to make this thing us grown up men call "money", it's something we get for doing things that we don't want to do!
This is why your nudes end up all over 4chan sweetie, because no one respects your self-important cunt.
Bullshit, she's had plenty of opportunities to deliver at this point. Most notably when she told off Ramsay's girl, she finally had the chance to show some intensity and yet she was as flat and wooden as ever.
Hell, even her few lines in the Apocalypse trailer are pretty dull, and her accent is terrible
>AND SHE FUCKING COMPLAINS ABOUT NOT GETTING PAID MORE.
She's not complaining that she's not being paid enough. She's complaining that men are generally paid more that women, which is a valid complaint.
And her nudes end up everywhere because she's popular.
Hope you're smarter when you're not angry...
I prefered First Class.
Singer's X-men Movies are between average and good. You got some good scenes but his movies feel safe, mechanical. I don't know what his problem with X-Men, The usual Suspect and Apt Pupil are far better.
When he's not doing it, you either get something good like First Class or really bad like X-men 3.
Most people outside of /co/ don't remember the first trilogy fondly. Maybe they liked it at the time but it wasn't that memorable. Most people don't care. It's not Lord of the rings or Spiderman...
>dicaprio acting his ass of in shit environments with shit schedules to finally get that deserving oscar
>praised untalented prettyface not wanting any icky makeup even though that's her character's defining trait
>valid complaint these two get paid accordingly
Singer's X-Men movies are the exact tone I would like for most superhero movies. Serious, but not relentlessly so, with some humor sprinkled throughout. He definitely could take a lot more influence from the comics like what's his name did for First Class, but when it comes to replayability I see myself watching his X-Men movies years down the road whereas I'm already sick of Marvel's movies and have almost zero interest in WB's DC movies.
That being said I really fucking hate the fact that Mystique is probably going to be the new Wolverine and is still being played by that cunt Jennifer Lardass.
i think we have other costumes to worry about
>Plus that interview with said that they changed everything about the character except her name.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead wasn't exactly a widely known fan favourite.
>not in tone with the character
She's an X-Man. An X-Men costume fits her character pretty well in my book.
I really don't like how nightcrawler looks, he looks like he's going to run of and cry any second
>Most people outside of /co/ don't remember the first trilogy fondly. Maybe they liked it at the time but it wasn't that memorable. Most people don't care.
Is that why Days of Future Past suddenly made more money than any previous iteration before? Nobody cared?
>Apocalypse seems to lack the sci fi tone of the comics from the trailer, which really worries me.
Singer mentions Apocalypse and 'alien connections', so we should be fine.
Everything we've heard said this is a planet threatening sci-fi disaster film like we've never seen in capeshit before. Not a bunch of CGI robots knocking CGI buildings over, the literal Apocalypse. We didn't see much in the first trailer because release date is in the summer and they're still busting their ass on the CGI.
Also knowing Singer and his skills at making a satisfying completed film while still setting up the next, I bet he's gonna give us the first step towards going cosmic and hint at the Shi'ar or maybe Phoenix Force. Really nowhere else to go after DoFP dystopia and the apocalypse.
They're actors. They have contracts negotiated based on past successes and name power. Additionally, actors/actresses with a certain amount of clout can demand a percentage of gross profits from the film. The only actors paid "to scale" (based on what the unions set) are nobodies or name stars hired at a discount.
3/10, I replied.
Well no shit. This was the same "actress" that wouldn't lose weight for the Hunger Games (literally, Hunger is in the title. Katniss is supposed to look half starved because she's poor as shit) and spun it as body positivity.
Meanwhile Christian Bale's crazy ass is an actual shapeshifter.
APOCALYPSE POWERS CONFIRMED
Here's the bullet points
>is an energy with no real body
>has body hopped for thousands of years
>gets stuck in a mutant body with "familiar powers"
>finally gets a chance to escape the body
The blue and yellow suit is probably their end of film uniforms based off the stole Apoco-tech.
That said. We see here a Jean in blue and yellow with shoulder thingies...
End of film costumes are going to be based heavily off of the 90's Jim Lee/XtAS outfits. Calling it.
Deadpool wore her green and yellow costume better.
>and then the next movie we get outer space adventures and the Phoenix? Glorious.
I'm not sure that I want Sansa to reenact the Phoenix saga. I'm not sure that she can play Phoenix at all. I can maybe buy her as Jean Grey, we'll see. But I can't see her playing a convincing Phoenix or Dark Phoenix.
It's such a shame about X-Men 3. Famke really prepared herself and acted her ass off. But she was barely in that movie to start with. Fuck X-Men 3.
