Novedades y Spoilers de XMEN: DOFP

Y si no quieren saber nada mejor no sigan leyendo jejejeje porque aqui encontraran una serie de spoilers de la nueva peli de nuestros mutantes favoritos

Director Bryan Singer promises that "X-Men: Days of Future Past," the fifth film in the Marvel mutant movie series, will be on the "biggest scale yet." And that certainly seemed to be the case when Yahoo visited the expansive Montreal set last year.
At an enormous studio complex, Singer and his team recreated the White House lawn for a key scene, and star Hugh Jackman, who returns as Wolverine for the seventh time, teased that "the stakes are at their greatest" for the mutants in this movie. "It's the greatest threat the X-Men have ever face, and this is as dangerous as it gets for all of them."
In a dystopian future, Professor X and Magneto (franchise veterans Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen), and their mutant allies are united in internment under the rule of enormous robots known as Sentinels. Hatching a plan to prevent this future from occurring, they send Wolverine back in time to try and stop the chain reaction of events that caused the fall of mutantkind.
It's here that the film ties Singer and Brett Ratner's original X-Men trilogy together with Matthew Vaughn's prequel "X-Men: First Class," as Wolverine travels back to the 1970s to find the young Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) to try and persuade him to stop something that hasn't happened yet. To do so, they'll have to recruit antagonist Magneto (Michael Fassbender) as well as Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence).
"You find Charles at a very low point," says McAvoy. "In a way, 'First Class' wasn't just an origin story [for the X-Men], but it was an origin story for Magneto. This is an origin story for Charles. He's in a mess."
"We're combining these two X-Men worlds," says Jackman. "And where do you begin? Wolverine underwent a massive change by meeting Professor X [in the first film]. He was wandering around with a lot of unanswered questions and anger and that guy really helped him grow. So now Wolverine sends his mind back to his younger body to find young Xavier in a slightly more vulnerable, difficult place. I can play a role for him that he later plays for me."

Director Bryan Singer on the set of 20th Century Fox' 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'
Singer calls the film an "inbetweenquel", taking place in between First Class and the first X-Men movie. It's based on a popular miniseries in the comics from 1980, in which the mutants of the dystopian future (set, coincidentally, in 2013) send Kitty Pryde back to stop the same fate. "Fans like to see the new characters, but they also like to be anchored in the familiar," Singer says. "So the 'Days of Future Past' framework was a really great jumping off point."
For Singer, the coming together of these two casts reminds him of his days directing his Oscar-winning breakout "The Usual Suspects." He said the films are similar "both structurally and in the way I shot it. I shot the future elements first, so it was like shooting a little movie first, with one cast, and then shooting another." Other returning cast members from the future timeline include Halle Berry (Storm), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde) and Anna Paquin (Rogue). "All the actors I've worked with in the past came, and then they left and a whole new group arrived."

20th Century Fox's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'
One key part of the new group is a character new to the X-Men movies: Quicksilver. Played by Evan Peters, Singer reveals he's worked out a high-tech solution involving shooting at 3600 frames a second to capture this mutant's ability to move at superhuman speeds.
In all, the cast adds up to some 26 main characters. But Singer seems to be taking it in his stride, pointing to differences between the two groups of actors. "The older cast are a little more set in their ways, while the younger cast are having a party," he laughed. "Every day they dance and play music in the make-up trailer, and then they come here and it's a non-stop party. But when the camera rolls, they're on it."
The threat to mutant-kind in this film comes from an unlikely source: diminutive military scientist Bolivar Trask, played by series newcomer Peter Dinklage. The actor is used to big ensembles, playing Tyrion Lannister in the ever-popular series Game of Thrones. "It's a thrill to be part of a team that knows exactly what they're doing," he says, adding that they've all been welcoming of the newbies. "Whenever we have anybody new come onto 'Game of Thrones' we greet them with similarly open arms, and get renewed by their presence. And then we kill them off very quickly – hopefully that doesn't happen here!"

Peter Dinklage in 20th Century Fox's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'
Dinklage wouldn't tell us much about his role. "Actually I play Wolverine," he joked. "We have Hugh Jackman around for show." But we do know that he is the creator of the Sentinels, and clearly a very political maneuverer. "He takes issue with mutants," says Dinklage. "The world's a complicated place. It's around the time of Watergate, and Richard Nixon is a character in the film. Trask sees humanity threatened and he has the ability to protect it."
The '70s style has had mixed reviews from the cast. Nicholas Hoult tells Yahoo that he was initially wary of the large collars and bellbottoms he had to wear. "But I've really started to embrace it," he laughs. Michael Fassbender, though, isn't a fan. "Michael hates it," reveals McAvoy. "But I love it. I feel as though I'm back in 'The Last King of Scotland' again. I've been listening to a lot of psychedelic sitar music, and plenty of 70s funk."
Having the old cast around has been great, he says. "This one feels a lot more X-Men-y, by nature of having those guys in it, and the director of the first two. This is a coming together of two different approaches to the same universe."
"And it's not just an 'X-Men' sequel," adds Singer, as our day on set comes to a close. "It's a science fiction movie and a time travel story. I've never done that before. It's been challenging and kind of fun, and I think I've cracked it."
“How much am I allowed to talk about?” 

I'm seated in the foyer of the X-Mansion and we hear this question more than once throughout the day. They've clearly adapted the “Loose lips sink ships” mentality on this picture - there's even some tension about revealing too much about the film. Director Bryan Singer's mutant epic is setting up to be a significant chapter in the franchise, and he doesn't want any of the surprises ruined for the fans.

Featuring the casts of the original films and 2011's X-Men: First ClassX-Men: Days of Future Past is the most ambitious project in the franchise and the second-most expensive film that 20th Century Fox has ever assembled. The production set up shop at Mel's Studio just outside Montreal, where they're inhabiting several sound stages on the lot. We've arrived at the studio on a warm Monday morning, and to further add to the mystery of the film and its secrets, we're immediately greeted with a non-disclosure agreements.

Once inside the studio, we're shown around the sets for the film that are still standing, one of which is being called the “inner sanctum.” Hidden deep in the mountains of China, this sparkling cavern full of candles and mirrored pillars is the last refuge for the mutants of the future, and you even get a glimpse of it in the trailer for the film. 

“It's built so high up there's no roads to it,” production designer John Myhre told us. “And it was inspired by some real Chinese temples that are on the side of cliffs. As somebody who builds things, I have no idea how they built them. We wanted it to be a very special place. There have been a lot of monasteries recently in movies. And I had heard years ago somebody going to a monastery in India that was carved out of a single stone.  So I started doing research and there were truly monasteries, if you can imagine they would carve something like this out of one rock.”

This particular set clocks in at around 120 feet by 300 feet, and that's only a fraction of what its original designs called for - the rest will be added digitally in post-production. The uniqueness of the set comes not only in its visual aesthetic, but also how Singer uses its various mirrors and glass to convey the scenes. Two characters conversing can have both of their faces shown simultaneously, thanks to their reflections appearing on one of the nearby pillars. No post special effects needed.

x-men planeAfterward, we're taken to a much larger stage that is inhabited by a wingless jet (a regular one, not the X-Jet, unfortunately) sitting atop a hydraulic rig. It's inside this jet that today's scenes are being shot with stars Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult. Hoult is 'flying' the jet, but when things get heated between Magneto and Charles in the rear, Magneto takes control using his powers and causes it to do a dive. This is where the hydraulic lift comes in. 

Controlled by a device that to my untrained eyes look like a pair of rings, the operator slowly dips the plane so that its nose is pointing almost at a 45 degree angle. Inside, James McAvoy tumbles onto a nearby couch, glasses and papers fall from the tables they were resting on, but Michael Fassbender does not move thanks to a pair of clasps keeping him on the floor. As their argument reaches its peak, Fassbender's character realizes what he's done, and the plane levels out once again. The take ends and director Bryan Singer passionately asks the operators that they dip the plane as quickly as possible. On the next take, McAvoy tumbles hard enough to cause a visible wince from the people watching.

“I try to fall on the soft things,” McAvoy admitted later. “I think our third take, I cracked my knee quite badly. But that was just my own fault. The plane wasn’t even throwing me around. I just tripped over a camera. I’m going to be limping for a week....The first time they did it, they said, 'Do you want to rehearse?' I said, 'No, let’s just do it and see where it throws me.'” 

It's appropriate that we arrived on the set when the scenes aboard the jet were being filmed as X-Men: Days of Future Past is a bit of a globe hopper. The film will have sequences set in Washington D.C., upstate New York within the X-Mansion, the streets of New York City, Paris, France, and a dystopian version of Moscow in the film's bleak future.

“When I opened up the pages of the script and it was talking about Moscow in the future partially destroyed, I kind of went, 'Wow, I've seen that in about three or four major movies in the past three years.' But we came up with an idea visually that is really interesting and a new take on it.” 

Mhyre quickly added, “But I'm not allowed to talk about it.”

The one thing that Myhre will talk about are the Xs that he has carefully hidden around the various sets for the film, the most obvious of which is before us on the staircase in the X-Mansion foyer.

charles x-men“I fought for this X in the staircase. That was something I refused to let go,” he admitted. ”There's Xs everywhere. It's funny, one of the producers said, 'Give me a list of all the Xs.' And I said 'I didn't make a list. It's just a fun thing to do.' There doesn't have to be an X on every single set, but on the first one we brought in a lot, but it's also interesting how many Xs there are in the real world.”

“John Myhre puts Xs everywhere,” Singer said with a chuckle. “I always say that, but I actually heard he's very deliberately doing them on every set so I'm starting to find them. I'm like 'Oh, look at that pillow, or that ash tray, or that thing.' So yeah, that's one that was pretty obvious, I actually didn't notice, but then when my friends come I'm like 'Hey didn't you notice? Lets take pictures in front of it!'”

Not all of these Xs will be visible when you're watching the film, but the one that you'll no doubt notice was Myhre's favorite.

 “One of my favorite ones we did on this was in front of their house. I wanted to do a circular drive in front of the mansion. And we were putting a hedge in with a fountain and I said, 'Why don't we make it an X?' You don't ever plan anything. So I took the big circle and just made a big X in the center.

“With the size of the cast, with the names in the cast, and with the size of the bloody budget, you go, 'I hope this works out.'”
x-men tivoAt Fox's Comic-Con panel on July 20, 2013, the entire ensemble cast for X-Men: Days of Future Past assembled on stage in front of the crowd at Hall H to thunderous applause and took part in one of the most unique panels that's ever graced the Con. Prior to this, many fans had expressed cynicism towards the idea of combining the casts, seeing it as a cheap attempt to capitalize on the success ofMarvel's The Avengers. It was in that moment though that it became truly clear how colossal and special this film was shaping up to be. These revelations weren't limited to the fans either, as the cast quickly learned how unique it was as well
“At Comic-Con, I suddenly realized the enormity of it all,” Nicholas Hoult said. “You see how much it means to the fans and you're suddenly like- oof, pressure.”
“It's literally the best cast I've ever seen in any film ever,” producer Hutch Parker told us on the set. “I think it's the best collection of actors I've ever seen put together, and to have them in the same space is amazing.”
The film will see both sets of cast living in a world very different from the last time we saw them on the big screen. James McAvoy and the rest of the “First Class” crew will be thrust into the 1970s while Patrick Stewart leads an X-Men team in a post-apocalyptic future decimated by Bolivar Trask's Sentinels.
“This is a more serious film than 'First Class,'" Singer admitted. “The characters, we encounter them in very dark places.”
Nicholas Hoult sits with his finger tips clasped together, hunched over and talking so casual it seems unlikely that he plays the neurotic Hank McCoy, aka Beast. Hoult is clearly excited to be back for the sequel, and not just to see his friends and cast mates from the first film but to meet the likes of Hugh Jackman, whom he hadn't worked with on the previous film.
“I remember the first day of shooting with him, I remember walking along and looking across at him and being like, 'That's Wolverine'….That's the strangest thing, doing a scene and then going to have a pee and he pulls up at your arm and you're like, 'Wolverine, cool.' So that was a big thing for me just because it suddenly felt very real, like a proper X-Men movie in a way.”
Things might be cheery and bright on the set, but in the context of the film, things aren't their best as Hoult laid out what the “First Class” characters' relationships will be like when we see them years later in “Days of Future Past.”
“Charles has a very close relationship with (Raven) and then at the end of the last film she obviously heads with Erik, Magneto and kind of believes more in his method of what mutants should be in the world. So there's those two relationships and Hank's relationship with her, which is maybe the most pure and simple, but there's also the thing whereby he's not happy and comfortable in his blue form where she's becoming more at peace with hers and understanding. She's kind of maturing a lot quicker than him.”
x-men fountainHank will also develop an even more complicated relationship with Michael Fassbender's Magneto, which will come to a head when the pair duke it out inside a fountain.
“I think there's always been a bit of tension between Erik and Hank because of the relationship they both have with Mystique obviously, and also just because Hank is very much in alliance with Charles so he doesn’t believe in Erik's ways.  But yeah that was fun for us to have a little play in the fountain together.”
One of the primary contributions that Hoult's character made in X-Men: First Class was the invention of Cerebro. He'll be debuting even more inventions in “Days of Future Past” including his own version of “TiVo” in 1973, which Singer revealed in a new behind-the-scenes image earlier this week (pictured above).
“Nic builds his version of TiVo - it records, but it's full of dozens of tape recorders and it fills that room over there,” Singer said. “And he's like 'I build this little device' and his monitoring the three networks because it's '73, and Hugh says 'All three?' and he goes 'And PBS.'”
We pressed Nic about his potential inventions in the film, going as far as to ask him if perhaps he builds the very famous “Danger Room.” In hesitation he replied: “That would be great. I don't think I'm allowed to talk about my inventions.”
“Days of Future Past” will see Hugh Jackman reprising his role of Wolverine for the seventh time, and even though he's the only actor that gets to interact with both sets of casts, he doesn't think he's the focus of the story.
“Well, what is amazing is, with this story, I'm not talking about the actors, but the character of Xavier, it's very much at the center of the story. Ian, Michael and Jennifer are really very much in the center here, and Nick, so playing with the younger character, you really get a chance to see a much broader range of that character then we never really got with Patrick, because he was a much more set character in a way. So his journey is huge and I get to follow it through, with both actors and both are… all four are incredible actors.”
Jackman is seated right next to me in the X-Mansion, still wearing his costume from the plane scene they've been filming all day, and after 13 years of seeing this guy on the big screen, I can't help but stare at his knuckles every chance I get. Hugh is one of the most engaging and friendly people you'll ever meet, a total 180 from the anti-social killing machine that is Logan.
x-men wolverine“I've grown more confident and probably my appreciation for the character has grown,” Jackman said about his legacy of playing the iconic character. “And that thing where you know there's a day when you're not going to be playing it, and that becomes clearer to you. I've been doing it for 14 years, so of course at some point I'm going to have to pass it on, so I guard it more jealously, I appreciate it more and I'm enjoying it more than ever. I think the last Wolverine movie was a script I could really get into and this one equally is something I've enjoyed as much as any of the others.”
McAvoy was our last interview of the day, and even after a hours of tumbling around on a plane and shouting back and forth with Michael Fassbender, he bounds into the X-Mansion for our interview like he's still loaded with energy. Sporting a pair of bell bottoms and a snazzy button up shirt, it's strange to see the man playing Charles Xavier walking around, but there he is. As a matter of fact, Charles will be doing a lot of walking in the film.
That's a huge part of the arc for him,” screenwriter Simon Kinberg mentioned. “Accepting, in some ways embracing the chair, as opposed to being condemned to it. It's something that by the end of the movie he's really taken his place in. I'm not to talk much about this, but it's in the Hank/Charles relationship that they've discovered a way to help him walk, but at the cost of other things. And over the span of the film, he embraces those other things and lets go of his legs.”
“It’s a movie about all of us, about all the guys in the X-Men,” McAvoy said when prompted that this was a film about Charles Xavier. “But I suppose the person with the biggest journey is arguably me. Because I change more than anybody by the end of the film compared to the beginning of the film.”
Walking and shaggy hair aren't the only differences you'll see in the character in this film, as McAvoy will be taking Charles to the darkest territory he's ever been on the big screen.
“I wanted to make Charles quite extreme, relative to who he has always been before. When I first took over the part, I was only able to do that to a certain extent, because ('X-Men: First Class') is about Michael’s journey, really. As much as I had a great part and I helped facilitate that – it was like a buddy movie and stuff, I had nice stuff to play – it was ultimately his narrative. In this one, it feels a little different in that I can go further with the extremity of it. I can go further with the extremity from what Patrick did, but also from what I did in the last movie, too. So you’ll find him very different. Not just because he’s got long hair, but because of what he is and how shaky his soul is.”
xaviers meetingMcAvoy's Xavier also has the distinction of being the only character in the film that meets up with his future self as played by Patrick Stewart, though we're unsure of the logistics of this sequence. Despite what you might think, the pair didn't put much thought into their shared screen time either. No overnight discussions were had about the importance of the scene, what it means for their characters. They just showed up and performed.
“It was my first day and their last day,” he mentioned. “It was quite a simple scene, really, in terms of—When you have two people who have the same person at different times in their life, checking each other out, it’s like… You don’t want to get in the way of it too much, with too much blocking, or too much moving around even. You just want to have us face to face, in a kind of… Not to get too sort of Federation about it, but to be in a nexus, you know what I mean? Almost a void space. It isn’t a void space. It’s not like just a black studio with a white light coming from somewhere. But you just want it to be those people’s faces, studying each other.”
Even though worlds are colliding in “Days of Future Past,” that doesn't mean we're not seeing even more mutants from the source material popping up as well. The one that seems to be causing the most stirs of excitement among fans, and the people on set, is Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask.
“Fox put together this enormous list of who it could be, and Bryan looked at that list and went 'Peter Dinklage,''' producer Lauren Shuler Donner tells us. “He was literally our first choice.”
Singer listed a number of reasons for casting Dinklage in the role–his appreciation for “Game of Thrones” and their shared New Jersey heritage among them–but that there's an irony in his casting that rings true in the story of the film.
“I like the idea of not a very big guy building very big robots, something ironically interesting about that. But he first and foremost, carries the screen, and there's not a second that you take him for, he even talks about that in a little speech he gives in congress in the movie about when he was young he was underestimated, don't underestimate small things.”
trask222In addition to Dinklage as Trask, we'll be seeing even more X-Men show up, namely Quicksilver, Sunspot, Bishop, Warpath, and Blink among them. Though unconfirmed, it's a possibility these characters could show up in future films, if not another form of media.
“It would be nice to incorporate them into future movies,” Kingberg said, revealing Fox's interest in additional solo movies. “It's interesting to think about what the future of the X-Men world would be, because we now have these two separate timelines. We have the original cast in the future essentially and we have the past, younger cast. But no, (their inclusion) wasn't really built for future movies; it was that they serve a narrative purpose within the film. When we meet some of our characters in the future, it tells the story of mutant refugees and so we wanted to populate that with characters that the fans would recognize and potentially would be intriguing enough that they'd want to follow into who knows what- maybe it's movies, maybe it's a television show, maybe it's their own anime, it could go in a lot of different directions these days, there are so many different types of media that it would be cool if a movie that has this many characters could actually take advantage of a different media.”
The X-Men franchise is well known for hiding easter eggs related to the larger universe within its films. Hank McCoy's cameo in the first film, William Stryker's mutant list in X2, to name a few. I asked Singer if they were taking a similar approach with this one, even though there are already a ton of mutants at the forefront of the movie.
“There's a little one I did with Quicksilver the other day which was fun. It's cute, it's one of those nods to the larger universe. So yeah we do a few.”
