Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart Play the Newlywed Game

11 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Given their epic bromance, it was only right that Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen play the Newlywed game. Since they've known each other for years (and enjoy the occasional bonding, sightseeing trip), it would seem like they would have this one in the bag, but the X-Men: Days of Future Past stars struggled—in a hilarious way—to answer questions about each other, including their most overused phrases and favorite foods. Nevertheless, the thesps had a blast during the game conducted by BuzzFeed Brews, filling the audience in on things like the definition of Yorkshire pudding. Prior to their match up, McKellen gushed over his Bff, according to the Independent, saying, "[Stewart's] »

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen play The Newlywed Game, are the cutest couple

13 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How well do supposed BFFs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen know each other? Not very - at least judging by this new (ok, actually two-month old) video of the lovable British actors playing a variation on "The Newlywed Game" for an audience of adoring fans. But before we get to the clip, a few important observations: 1. Yorkshire Pudding is not at all what I thought it was. 2. Patrick Stewart 2014 still looks exactly like Patrick Stewart 1997. 3. Ian McKellen thinks "Country + Western" is a song and not a genre, because British. 4. "Widow Twankey" is my new euphemism for everything. 5. Ian McKellen is wearing a pair of black Ugg boots. I repeat: Ian McKellen is wearing a pair of black Ugg boots. 6. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are our new Betty White. (Sorry, Betty, but your moment has passed.)

Don't expect the original 'X-Men' cast in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

19 April 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Anaheim - Simon Kinberg had an unexpected trip to WonderCon on Saturday.  The "X-Men: Days of Future Past" screenwriter and producer stepped in for director Bryan Singer who finds himself in the middle of a publicity nightmare surrounding abuse allegations that took place almost 14 years ago.  It's a rare moment in the spotlight for Kinberg who, in many ways, has become the key man on 20th Century Fox's superhero movies. Kinberg wrote the dreadful "X-Men: The Last Stand," but redeemed himself five years later as a producer on "X-Men: First Class" and is both the writer and producer of Fox's buzzworthy "Fantastic Four" reboot. Today, however, he's sitting down to talk about "Days of Future Past" and, happily, he hasn't succumbed to answering questions with just studio talking points (oh, there's time). The latest "X-Men" extravaganza is one of the most anticipated movies of the year and for a variety of reasons. »

Sir Patrick Stewart Teases 'Xavier's Return In X-men: Apocalypse And Beyond

19 April 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

One of the things X-Men: Days Of Future Past seems to be setting out to achieve is a passing of the torch from the original team to their younger counterparts; basically making way for the X-Men: First Class cast to continue the franchise. But does that mean we've seen the last of the likes of Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart? It certainly doesn't sound that way! When asked by MTV if he could return to the wheelchair for X-Men: Apocalypse, Stewart sounds positive. "I don't see why not. That is one of the blessings about fantasy and science fiction. You're never really dead. I would love to come back and do some more."   Is he insinuating that his character will be killed off in Dofp? We know that Fox have more X-movies planned out, right up to an as-yet untitled project set for release on July 18, 2018. Stewart also »

Anna Paquin's Rogue Plays Pivotal Role in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

17 April 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After director Bryan Singer revealed in December that Anna Paquin will not be appearing in X-Men: Days of Future Past, we reported yesterday that the actress actually does have a small cameo in the upcoming mutant sequel as Rogue. Today, we have a new report from Vulture that reveals the details of her scene, along with news that three other mutants from the original trilogy will also have cameos.

There will be spoilers included below, so read on at your own risk.

Apparently Rogue plays a pivotal part in the storyline, and it would have been impossible to cut her out altogether. Her scene is crucial to the plot of the movie, especially its climax, and it has been trimmed to make more room for the X-Men: First Class cast.

The story beings in a dystopian future where the remaining mutants are being hunted down by giant Sentinel robots. Charles »

Patrick Stewart has a secret past in Tribeca movie 'Match' -- Exclusive Video

17 April 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In Match, which premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 18, Patrick Stewart plays a renowned former dancer and Juilliard teacher, who welcomes the opportunity to tell old stories when a graduate student (Carla Gugino) and her husband (Matthew Lillard) arrange an interview for her dissertation on contemporary-dance history. But their conversation soon shifts and becomes more tense, as it becomes clear that the couple has ulterior motives for tracking him down.

Stephen Belber adapted his 2004 Broadway play — which starred Frank Langella in the lead role — and directed the film, which sticks to the strong three-character dynamic that was the basis of the play. »

X-Men: Days of Future Past - Anna Paquin's Rogue role detailed

17 April 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Warning: This article contains spoilers that some readers may wish to avoid

Anna Paquin's role in X-Men: Days of Future Past has been revealed.

Following the revelation that she will appear as Rogue in the 20th Century Fox film, Vulture has detailed her original and revised function in the story.

In the dystopian future setting of the film, an injured Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) is using her powers to project Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) into the past.

As she begins to succumb to her wounds, a replacement is needed, and only Rogue's ability-absorbing powers can help.

Originally, the film was to feature an expensive set piece in which Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) rescue Rogue from the Xavier Mansion, now a military base guarded by the mutant hunting Sentinel robots.

That scene has been cut, but despite rumours, Paquin's character was always intended to step in and relieve Pryde. »
