With the upcoming release of X-Men: Days Of Future Past – The Rogue Cut coming out on July 13th, we have an exclusive clip from the behind-the-scenes look with Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker on exactly why the Rogue subplot was cut from the film. Anna Paquin came and filmed the scenes early on […]
Got a tip on a potential swipe file from the very same magazine shelf. We start with a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly featuring Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin. And then Psychology Today using a slightly less famous couple. I’m hoping that photo is for the Love & Lust article and not the 7 Mistakes […]
So earlier reports that Rogue is completely out of X-Men: Days of Future Past may have been exaggerated.
I don't know if he's had a change of heart, has come under orders from Fox or just overlooked a detail when making his original claims, but Singer has now changed his story.

There are many reasons her Xclusion from the sequel makes sense, the most plot-centric of which being the fact that her character took the mutant cure in X-Men: The Last Stand. While X3’s ending would have us believe that the cure was temporary, […]
She had only filmed one scene, which became extraneous.
I've never much cared for True Blood but I'll at least agree that Anna Paquin is magnificent. Okay, that she was magnificent in Margaret. And The Piano.
Rogue? Present. Iceman? Present. Kitty Pryde? Present. Emma Frost? Emma Frost? Emma Frost? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
Let’s do the time warp again. This is the first trailer for Margaret, a film that Kenneth Lonergan wrapped in 2005 but which is only now seeing a release. Along the way, many different edits of the film were made, and Lonergan seemed to be having trouble cutting the film sufficiently to please his distributors. […]
It’s been the best part of seven years since Kenneth Lonergan wrapped on Margaret, but countless edits. Contractually obliged to be deliver a film of two hours or less, Lonergan was finding it very difficult to fashion a film he was happy with. This is not much of a surprise when you learn that the […]
