If you thought X-Men: Days of Future Past already featured just about every character imaginable, think again! Bryan Singer tweeted yesterday that Quicksilver would actually be in the film, played by Evan Peters, mostly known for his roles in American Horror Story. The interesting part isn’t so much the casting, but more the fact that Quicksilver is also set to be in The Avengers 2. The reason why is because Fox and Marvel have a weird deal going on where they can share the rights to this character so long as Marvel doesn’t make references to his origins from the X-Men universe. Kind of interesting, albeit good that he can be used in both universes, though the casting of two different actors in two separate films might create some confusion for the audience. In addition to Quicksilver, this studio agreement also extend to Scarlet Witch whom Joss Whedon also wants to put in The Avengers 2.
Here’s a crazy trailer for Don Jon, the directorial debut from director/actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film features Scarlett Johansson and tells the story about one man’s addiction to pornography. And it looks kind of…fascinating? I’m usually pretty wary of actors turned directors but Ben Affleck pulled it off and honestly I actually really enjoyed the trailer. The bit with ‘Good Vibrations’ more or less sold it for me. Also as you can see, Anne Hathaway and Channing Tatum have brief cameos in a movie within the movie. And how many movies have you seen recently that actually gave Tony Danza a starring credit?
It’s a HUGE weekend at the box office with three major wide releases and obviously that doesn’t even include the other blockbusters released in previous weeks. First up is Fast and Furious 6, the latest installment in the heist/racing series starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. Currently it has a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes, which in my opinion is well deserved after having viewed it last weekend. For comedy lovers, you may want to check out The Hangover Part III, but considering the awful 22% approval rating it has, it might be one to avoid. Too bad, I was hoping for a rebound after the underrated second part. And then families can also check Epic, which is about an ongoing war between small creatures out in the wild. Right now it has a 67% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is solid, but nothing spectacular. For the weekend, I’m thinking about $105 million for Fast and Furious 6 over the 4-day weekend, while Hangover Part III will take in about $75 million over 5 days, and then Star Trek into Darkness claiming the #3 spot with about $42.5 million.
