Today we have a clip from "X-Men: Days of Future Past," giving us a look at Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) kicking some butt after sneaking into a meeting held by Boliver Trask (Peter Dinklage) and William Stryker (Josh Helman). Check it out below.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" has Kitty Pryde sending her mind back to her younger self in order to warn the X-Men that Senator Robert Kelly's assassination will result in a future where Sentinels rule the United States and mutants live in internment camps.
The new movie stars James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart. It's set to hit theaters on May 23rd.
In Singer's defense, he did have the little tidbit Nightcrawler/Mystique scene in X2 and I have a funny feeling that if he had remained on X3 they would have gone into that more. But he didn't and the actor who plays Nightcrawler left and...well you know Ratner directed is so...
That might explain why they cast Bishop as a black guy...course Singer might have wanted him for himself. LOL
Oh now I get it! You keep giving me crap because you want her for yourself. Dude you totally can have her. She's more your speed anyway. Dumb and just there to be a joke. LOL
On a more serious note, say what you want about Peter Dinklage's size, but the man is a surprising revelation of an actor. The first thing I ever saw him in was "Elf" in this little bit part and he was just funny but cynical as sh*t. Then he plays this and Game of Thrones, to me one of the only truly interesting characters on the show. It's nice to see someone defy the odds like that. And not that's it nice to not see Mystique fighting and not bitching but what is with the breakdance fighting?! Seriously did anyone notice the horizontal, double, kind of out-of-place 360 spin? LOL
LOL Good point. I have to admit I get why they made her naked, just because that white dress be a little hard to sell. Makes more sense to do the chameleon, snake look.
Still no idea what the plot is here. In the original story wasn't it going back in time to stop someone from dying which I assumed was Mystique here trying to kill Trask, but then Wolverine recruits her. No idea what the overall play here is.
I quite admire Peter Dinklage as well. As sad of a fact as it may be, normally when I see someone with a form of dwarfism it's either the main point of their character or it's somewhat distracting in a way. As though every few minutes I have a reminder go off in my head that points out the height issue. Which is just me personally. It's not like I think less of them for it, there just seems to be a constant "noticing" going on in my head, and it tends to pull me out of the plot in a few cases. I'm sure part of it can be attributed to the fact that you hardly see people with dwarfism playing anything but as ridiculous stereotypes like Santa's elves or leprechauns.
Though in the case of Mr. Dinklage, there have been more than a few occasions when I completely forget the visual difference between him and everyone else until someone else brings it up. (By that I mean brought up in the story or by a character, not that there are people in my house going "wait, he's a midget!") It's nice to see someone like him break out of that irritating sh*t and not have to constantly play little more than a caricature of himself.
I still remember him being good in Nip/Tuck. (Though I'm still working on forgiving myself for watching that show.) And if you haven't seen it, go check out The Station Agent. That was the first thing I saw him in, a little over a decade ago, and I still quite enjoy that movie.
More to the topic at hand though, is it me or does Mystique seem to be a different shade of blue now? It seems off somehow. She slowly went from slightly brighter than Nightcrawler to nightclub fluorescent blue.
Am I remembering correctly that they changed the way they do the makeup for this one? Or am I just completely making that up? I want to say I heard they switched to a body suit rather than paint and prosthetics. If this is indeed the case, I don't particularly care for this new version..
One more thing about Peter Dinklage. It's actually kind of an entertaining thought that a white man with dwarfism is taking over the role that was just recently portrayed by a large heavyset black man in the same current adaptation of the X-Men series. In a film that's title no longer makes sense, no less. Not much of a "Last Stand" after all.
