This fresh take on the classic monster movie is told by Igor's perspective. It follows Igor's dark origins and his blossoming friendship with young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein.
Throughout the story, we see how Frankenstein became the mad scientist who created one of the most memorable monsters in history!
McAvoy explains the development of Igor's character in an interview:
When we first heard that the name of this movie was The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, we thought hey if Jessica Chastain can find Osama bin Laden, she can definitely find this Eleanor Rigby chick!
But then we found out that Jessica was playing Eleanor! Oh well!
First of all, wow! Jessica is just stunning in this new trailer for the film! Her chemistry with James McAvoy is intense. Like Breaking Bad chemistry intense!
SRSLY! Professor X? Professor Sex!
Ch-ch-check out the trailer for yourself (above)!!!
It makes us all warm and fuzzy when cast members are so chummy with each other!!
Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, James McAvoy, and Patrick Stewart all got together and made an appearance on Good Morning America to promote their new film, X-Men: Days of Future Past!
Before getting down to the nitty gritty stuff, Robin Roberts had to ask just how or why Professor Xavier was able to return to the newest film!
If you watched the previous flick until the very end, you know, and for those who didn't, shame on you! LOLz!
Don't worry, the "future" Professor X explains the whole reason why!
Ch-ch-check out the adorably star studded cast (below)!!
Whoa, looks like Professor X is more like Pyro!
Apparently, after a night of filming in Montreal last year, Nicholas Hoult went out with some fellow cast members including James McAvoy, as well as the now legally embroiled Bryan Singer, to a bar by the name of the Burgundy Lion.
And that's when things got kind of heated.
James gave Nicholas a flaming shot, which is reportedly very dangerous (the combination of fire and alcohol should make anyone realize that), but it looks like Nicholas managed to swallow the fiery concoction down!
What a beast!
Ch-ch-check out the blazing drink off…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
The past is finally here! And it's a fight for the future!
Hugh Jackman VS Nicholas Hoult! James McAvoy VS Michael Fassbender! Evan Peters VS gravity! Jennifer Lawrence VS everyone!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to find out who makes it out alive in the final trailer for X-Men: Days Of Future Past!
Due to the crazy time travel nature of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy are playing the exact same characters as Sir Ian Mckellen and Patrick Stewart years apart.
Sounds like it could be a challenge for an actor, not only getting the character's voice right but getting another actor's as well!
Good thing Michael and James are such quick studies! They do darn good impressions of their counterparts! And Hugh Jackman has some secret impressions of his own!
Find out who does the best Ian…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Oh no! We have to wait another NINE MONTHS before seeing James McAvoy as Doctor Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe as a strangely seksi Igor?
But we have a hunch this delay could actually be a good sign!
Often when a movie is pushed so far back, it's to fix major problems! Reshoots, rewrites, recasting. But what's important to look at here is the actual dates involved.
Originally, Frankenstein was set to open in January 2015. January, the deadest of box office months, when it would take lightning striking to create a box office hit.
A nine month push puts its premiere on October 2nd, just before Halloween. That's like summer for horror movies!
Maybe this means FOX thinks this monster mash has what it takes to be a graveyard smash? We certainly hope so!
Until then, ch-ch-check out more pics (below) of the hottest hunchback since… Huh. We'll just stick with hottest hunchback.
