Hollywood celebrities James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain visited the capital as part of her promotional tour of the film “X-Men: the Dark Phoenix”.
On the eve of the capital came the stars of the new film “X-Men” Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy. Company actors were the Director of the film Simon Kienberg and producer Hutch Parker. James and Jessica yesterday has already managed to visit the set of the show “Evening Urgant”, and, of course, to walk in Moscow – especially guests like Red square after sunset.
“Yesterday, we had a lovely evening. We were on red square, where there was almost nobody and it was ours. When you see these beautiful monuments, the architecture, just the breathing stops,” he told McEvoy at a press conference held today at the Ritz Carlton. Pictures from red square you can see in our material.
The plot of the movie “X-Men: the Dark Phoenix” is built around one of the most gifted mutants Jean grey – because she acquires an incredible power that changes her and transforms into Dark Phoenix. Now the entire team of X-Men will have to choose a grey life or the lives of all people living in the world. In Russia the film will be released June 6.
“Movies about “X-Men” for me is about family, they are the best. In “X-Men: First class” we’ve built a family… In “Days of future past” it stronger. In the new movie we break family, break the relationship. This is a test. My character passes through it and trying to save the world, instead of trying to save his family. He believes that in every person there is good, and tries to find it in people and in himself. He’s trying to be a good guy, but he has to understand the consequences of what he himself once did,” said James McAvoy.
“For me it was an incredible first experience at such a massive film. However, I quickly joined the team and found a common language with all who worked on this amazing project. The shooting was challenging but fun,” says Jessica Chastain. “In one of the shooting days, when I hung on special ropes, like a puppet, Jessica decided to play a trick on me and took the remote control cables on themselves. She pulled the levers and lifted my hands and legs to the rhythm of “Macarena” and there is nothing I could do! It was a great day!” – laughs James.
Simon Kienberg and Hutch Parker, in turn, noted that literally amazed at how in Russia love all the Saga of the “X-Men” and journalists prepare for the press conference, making up interesting questions.
