A few set photos floating around this afternoon are of interest for various reasons.
¶ A fan on the street snapped a shot of a Spider-Man action scene underway in LA. Can you see what is wrong with this picture?
ANSWER: IT IS BEING SHOT IN LA. Feh. Faw. Their Spring Street is not like OUR Spring Street!
¶ This photo of the cast of X-MEN: FIRST CLASS was first up on MSN, then yanked, and then put up all over, but now people are saying it might be a fake. The still shows, left to right, Magneto (Eric Fassbender), Dr. Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne), Emma Frost (January Jones — MEOW), Azazel (Jason Flemyng), Hank McCoy (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), Angel Salvadore (Zoë Kravitz) Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence)and Professor X (James McAvoy.)
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS is due in June and deals with the ’60s history of mutants, as Xavier and Lehnsherr battle for the souls of the young outcasts. It’s notable for the sheer number of youngish fresh –and reasonably priced — talent in the film, such as Jennifer Lawrence, a frequent award nominee this winter for her work in WINTER’S BONE. And yes, January Jones.
Our spider sense says fake. Don’t ask us why…it just does.
