With roughly 950 mutants vying for screen time in Bryan Singer.s packed-to-the-gills X-Men: Days of Future Past, it was only a matter of time before some recognizable stars landed on the cutting room floor. We think it might have already happened to Anna Paquin.s Rogue. And now it.s possible that the bulk of Halle Berry.s Storm scenes have been washed away, as well. The New York Daily News quotes a source from the set of Singer.s massive sequel as saying that Berry.s mutant hero has been reduced in post-production to one scene. Berry was pregnant while filming scenes for Days of Future Past. The source adds: "She only has one line in the whole movie. They.re not telling her until the movie comes out." Unless, of course, she reads about it online. Thanks, Internet! Storm surfaced in the early trailers for X-Men: Days of »
Director Bryan Singer previously revealed that despite filming scenes with Rogue (Anna Paquin), the character was almost entirely cut from "X-Men: Days of Future Past." And now comes word that the same thing happened with Storm (Halle Berry). It's not clear how much screen-time Story originally had, but according to New York Daily, "Halle Berry, who plays Storm, was cut out of every scene but one in post-production." Part of the reason behind this is likely due to the fact that the actress was pregnant when shooting the film. "Storm probably won't be as badass as she was going to be because we won't be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that," she previously revealed. Even though Storm wasn't involved in many action scenes, Berry said that the film will unveil a new and shocking secret about her character. It's not clear if that secret is »
New York Daily News reports that almost all of Halle Berry's scenes have been trimmed from the movie. Their source says Berry has been "cut out of every scene but one in post-production".
Berry learned of her pregnancy just as shooting began which saw her role being limited in some ways. Berry previously revealed that Storm won't be doing much fighting or flying in the film, but we will learn something shocking about her character.
Singer has previously indicated that a good amount of cut footage will arrive on the DVD and Blu-ray versions of the film. With more than twenty-six main characters to service, that's not a surprise. »

The director-writer-producer told Total Film magazine that “Apocalypse,” which will deal with the notion of ancient mutants, but be set in the 1980s, will be the most destructive movie in the franchise.
“‘Apocalypse’ will have more of the mass destruction that ‘X-Men’ films, to date, have not relied upon,” Singer said. “There’s definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle.”
The helmer also hinted that the pic could feature younger versions of familiar characters.
“That’ll be fun to show the audience,” he told the mag. “I call these movies in-between-quels. It’s a mind-f**k sometimes in terms of where things fall in the timeline. »

New X Men,Days Of Future Past 3D filming details revealed by Producer Hutch Parker. As previously reported, Collider got the chance to chat it up with "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" producer, Hutch Parker, and he dished a lot of spoiler intel. In this particular segment, he discussed filming the movie in 3D. He talked about the Wolverine conversion. Also, the filming was pretty seamless for the most part, but they did have trouble trying to cram that camera into the cockpit scenes. Hutch explained: "Honestly, I was much more worried about it coming in. On The Wolverine we’d done the conversion and what was nice about that is there’s greater flexibility in the shooting and takes less time. The 3D camera can bog you down. But because Bryan has done a film in 3D he came very well versed. And Tom Sigel, his Dp, they did it together. »
X Men,Days Of Future Past cutting Halle Berry Aka Storm out of most of the movie,new details. According to a new report from Comicbookmovie.com, the New York Daily News is now reporting that the big "X-men: Days Of Future Past" super hero/action flick is going to be cutting out most of Halle Berry aka Storm's appearances down to just one scene in the post-production phase. They stated: "Meanwhile, on the work front, a source who was on the set of “X Men: Days of Future Past,” tells us Berry, who plays Storm, was cut out of every scene but one in post-production." Halle was a couple of weeks preggers when she shot the movie, and was starting to show, so she couldn't engage in any fighting or major stunt work, which limited her involvement. However, she still thought her part would be quite integral. However, it »
X-Men: Days of Future Past is an ambitious film. For Fox, it’s their first attempt at a shared universe and will combine all their X-Men movies into one franchise, paving the way for even more X-films – like X-Force and Apocalypse – down the line.
The real draw, however, has been that Days of Future Past sees the return of several characters from Fox’s first trilogy of X-Men films. Storm in particular was a character fans anticipated returning, especially once actress Halle Berry teased her character’s “integral” role, despite her pregnancy keeping her from flying and being as typically “badass” as in previous films.
Unfortunately, there may be some bad news for ...

With more than 26 main characters all crowding each other within a two hour time frame, it seems quite logical and probable that some of them are going to get cut from X-Men: Days of Future Past. It already happened with Anna Paquin's Rogue, who was edited out of the finished cut. Now comes word that almost all of Halle Berry's scenes have been trimmed and swept into the dustbin.
Its not clear how much screen time she would have had, but its clear that the original Mutants are the first to go when it comes to X-Men: Days of Future Past, with director Bryan Singer focusing more on the X-Men: First Class cast in telling this story.
An onset source revealed the news to New York Daily, saying:
According to the New York Daily News, Berry's presence in the film as mutant Storm has allegedly been cut down to just one scene.
Berry was pregnant with her second child during most of the filming on X-Men: Days of Future Past in Montreal.
"Storm probably won't be as badass as she was going to be," Berry said after filming. "Because we won't be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that."
She also hinted: "There's something very revealing and shocking about Storm in this movie that I thought was needed."
Last year, it was revealed that Anna Paquin's role »

Disappointment, it is something that we've all experienced at some time from 20th Century Fox with their handling of the X-Men franchise. We have grown accustomed to getting our hopes up and then having them dashed. Earlier this year, we felt that familiar displeasure as word came down that True Blood actress Anna Paquin (Rogue) was cut from X-Men: Days of Future Past. Yes, there's still a small chance of Paquin being in the film because of some last minute reshoots, but we can't bank on that. And now, New York Daily News reports that Halle Berry's ("Catwoman") screen time has been reduced to merely one scene in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Meanwhile, on the work front, a source who was on the set of “X Men: Days of Future Past,” tells us Berry, who plays Storm, was cut out of every scene but one in post-production. - »
A new trailer hits in a little over a week for "X-Men: Days of Future Past," but the film itself has already won an honor.
In a poll conducted on Rotten Tomatoes of the most anticipated films of this Summer, the new "X-Men" film came on top with 110,869 votes. It came in ahead of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" in second along with "How to Train Your Dragon 2," "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Godzilla" rounding out the top six.
Actor Josh Helman, who plays a young William Stryker in the film, tells IGN that he was originally hired to play a young Juggernaut in the film.
"I originally got hired on a different role, which is no longer in the script -- it was going to be young Juggernaut. So I was like, 'Oh, shit. I've got to put on like 30 pounds!' »

Take another look at spoiler images of a fight sequence between mutants 'Hank McCoy' aka 'Beast' (Nicholas Hoult) and 'Erik Lehnsherr' aka 'Magneto' (Michael Fassbender) on the set of "X-Men: Days of Future Past":
That original story alternated between present day, in which the 'X-Men' fight the 'Brotherhood of Evil Mutants' led by mutant shape-shifter 'Mystique'...
...and a future timeline caused by the X-Men's failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating 'Senator Robert Kelly':
"...the story begins 30 years in the future. In the 'present' the year is 1980, and 'Kitty Pryde' has just joined the X-Men. While in the 'future' 'Kate Pryde' is a middle-aged women running for her life, trying to meet up with an elderly 'Wolverine' in a now-destroyed New York City.

Ever since X-Men: Apocalypse was announced back in December, fans have been wondering when this highly-anticipated sequel might be set. Today, director Bryan Singer provided an answer to that burning question in an interview with Total Film, revealing that the movie will be set in the 1980s, and that it will feature the most mass destruction of any X-Men movie.
"We're going to deal with the notion of ancient mutants - the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago. But it'll be a contemporary movie - well, it'll take place in the '80s... The '80s is a period now - it's hard for me to believe that!" He continued, "Apocalypse will have more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon. »

In 2006, the X-Men franchise appeared to be in trouble. Bryan Singer had departed the Marvel mutant movies, handing the reigns to Brett Ratner, of all people. Key characters were killed off. Important villains were marginalized (poor Juggernaut). The future looked bleak. Nowadays, few franchises appear to be as healthy as Fox.s X-Men series. What a difference a few years can make. Matthew Vaughn reset the needle with the origin-story prequel X-Men: First Class. Several significant pieces from the past and present are coming back to the screen for a generations-spanning story in this summer.s X-Men: Days of Future Past. And plans already are underway for 2016.s X-Men: Apocalypse. The future looks bright! Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we have to dig deep into Days of Future Past. We have roughly 100 moving parts to organize as we get ready for the sequel.s May 26 release date. »
In a recent interview, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer said that the movie has 26 main characters, and it’s a statement that’s pretty easy to believe looking at the cast list. The 1970s characters share screen time with 21st century heroes and there are a number of new characters being introduced – both into the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants.
Add to that a time travel/alternate timeline plot that is designed to rectify the continuity errors within the franchise, and X-Men: Days of Future Past is left with a lot to accomplish. This could either be ...
