BEA Day 3 wrap-up

Nothing much goes on at the third day of the BookExpo America — it’s generally a chance just to run around and talk to the people you missed the first two days, although most people have already gone back to the office.

We’ll have a full write-up tomorrow both here and at PW, but in the meantime, a couple of photos.

Fox launches X-Men EXTRA app for iPad

With screenings unfolding around the globe, all the buzz on X-MEN: FIRST CLASS has been great (100% on Rotten Tomatoes), and last night the film had its world premiere in NYC, with Marvel’s own John Lowe doing some red carpet commentary. Releasing studio Fox has just added to the fun with a new iPad app X-Men EXTRA which plays into the whole conspiracy angle of the film, which follows Xavier and Magneto as young allies in the 60s. As you can see the app has some fun with the historical record, ala Boilerplate, imaging Emma Frost standing beside Jackie Kennedy in a fetching go-go booted ensemble. Check out the byline for another in-joke.
