“I’m a huge ‘Game Of Thrones’ fan,” director of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Bryan Singer tells Yahoo Movies on the set of the forthcoming X-sequel.
“There’s a crossover between ‘X-Men’ and ‘Game Of Thrones’, they’re both about a younger generation finding their powers, finding out who they are, and what their place in the world is. I like how the show’s about different groups of people moving towards a common goal. They don’t even know if that’s the right goal, who wants to sit on that uncomfortable throne? I don’t! Everyone in King’s Landing is miserable. But for some reason they want that power.”
July, 2015, Montreal, Canada. We’re watching a bald man loom out of the shadows in a stone room, somewhere in a violent foreign land. Emotion wracks his face, and a solitary tear trickles down his cheek. We brace ourselves to hear the iconic line “The horror, the horror” before remembering we’re not actually on the set of ‘Apocalypse Now’, but ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. We’re not seeing Marlon Brando shoot a key scene as Colonel Kurtz, but James McAvoy’s Professor X. His head’s shaved for accuracy, not madness. But we’re not the only ones to spot a similarity.
“We talked about Kurtz and the lighting of that reveal [in ‘Apocalypse Now’],” Singer tells us. “Obviously, they did it for that character because Brando showed up so fat Coppola didn’t know how to introduce him, and he thought ‘I’ll do it very slowly and gradually and hide the body’ because it might be a shock to the audience. There was a practicality, which ended up being a piece of magnificent artistry, with one of the greatest improvised monologues in film history. Here, there’s nothing that direct, but we do laugh about it looking through the monitor.”
Of course, it’s not every day you hear a director compare their superhero project to one of the most adult shows on television, and to one of the darkest war movies of the ‘70s, but it appears ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is a very different beast to its predecessors.

Here’s a snippet of Faux Pas
James and Michael knew their relationship from the start was something no one could ever touch. It was like one of those precious antiques you savored and put away forever. But things however were not forever not when James started to find his costar just a little bit tempting. Every time James came off set, he had a smile on his face. Michael was sad that he was not the one who made his partner happy.
James was whistling today as he worked on making dinner for the both of them. He was cooking his favorite: Roast beef with a side of greens and his famous corn bread to boot. Michael came around the kitchen looking at him with curiosity.
“What’s got you all happy love?” Michael leaned in.
“I invited my costar over today. He accepted. Now I don’t want you to be jealous, but he’s important to me just as you are.” James said putting the greens to sauté.
“Who’s your conquest? Come on you have to share?” Michael wondered.
“A Brit by the name of Daniel Radcliffe.” James smiled thinking of him.
“You invited Harry Potter to dinner, why?” Michael came around helping whisk the corn bread batter.
“Let’s just say we are a little more than friends now. He’s quite the talent.” James was happy that he and Dan were getting closer.
