“X-Men: Apocalypse” Bryan sing appeared at the San Pedro International Film Festival this weekend and spoke about the movie. He talks about how the movie will effectively close all 6 X-Men movies out, becuase of this he says the film is likely to run longer than any of the previous instalments:
“The cut’s a little long right now, but I think it’s going to be a longer X-Men movie. The X-Men movies I usually I keep under two hours, but this one I may actually let be a longer movie because it’s sort of a wrap-up of six movies.”
He went on to mention a potential spoiler appearing in the already cut trailer.
“It’s kind of a wrap up of X-Men 1, 2, 3, First Class, Days of Future Past, and there’s even an homage at the end, a scene. Its going to get spoiled because they decided to use it in the trailer which comes out in like six months, but it’s a really cool trailer. But it’s kind of a wrap up of six movies. So, it might run a little bit long.”
Singer gave special praise to an emotional performance from Michael Fassbender and in particular a piece of improvisation from the star who plays Magneto in the comic book movie.
“Michael Fassbender did something so wonderful in this movie… We’re at the end of the scene, and he asked me not to call cut and when the scene was over, he continued and did something that made me cry in the tent; I’ve never done that before.
The head of my company grabbed a Kleenex. Simon Kinberg, the writer who has no emotions at all, actually became emotional. It was so beautiful, I’ve never seen an actor do this for me and [Fassbender] just took the scene to a whole ‘nother level. It’s a heartbreaking scene, not a typical comic book movie scene at all, so let’s hope it makes the cut.
But after he did it, I went up to him, hugged him and said ‘Thank you, Michael, for that gift. Now I need you to do it again.’ And he did it, and [frick]ing rocked it again… with full emotion.”
“X-Men: Apocalypse” is set to play in movie theatres from May 27th 2016. Watch the video of Singer on the panel below.
