New X3 Trailer

I wasn't going to sit trough two hours of '24' to catch it, nor waste tape taping it when I figured it would be online soon enough, but, as luck would have it, I managed to catch it right after turnng on the TV.

I can't imagine what these films would be like without Hugh Jackman. In a lesser actors hands, at best, I wouldn't care so damn much. At worst, I'd probably laugh at some of the lines he must say. There's a clip where he's telling Jean/Phoenix that they can help her. They can make things right, like they were before. And you see the desperation and anguish written all over his face. Unfortunately, her response of "kill me" is too reminiscent of the 'Alien' films to be as heartbreaking as it should be.

In the earlier trailer released by FOX, we saw clips of a funeral. Now we see Logan on his knees crying being comforted by Storm in front of Xavier's empty wheelchair. That can't be good.

Rebecca Romijn gets to go without all the blue latex again. She is wearing a black wig though. Does the serum that supposedly reverses the mutant gene and make the mutants 'normal' get tested on her?

Cyclops looks to have another small role. I was never a fan, so, whatever.

Logan's "I'm not your father" line to Rogue was a relief otherwise there would now be a lot of icky fanfic. ;p

So, when Jean becomes Phoenix she goes evil? (You can answer that one.) She seems to be playing on Magneto's team now.

Yeah, Phoenix is evil. Hence the "Dark Phoenix" bit. ;) And then I believe she sort of becomes good again right before she dies... which is good, because I think it prevents her from destroying the universe. So that's handy.

I'm telling you, the funeral is Jean's. Bet you anything. (I'm unspoiled.) Maybe Xavier gets kidnapped or something?

DAMN STRAIGHT HE'S NOT HER FATHER.
I only really know the characters pre-film from the animated series that ran in the early 90s was it? From that I recall Jean becoming Phoenix, but she was depicted as more confused and conflicted than evil. Maybe it is her funeral. Or maybe it's group buriel.

DAMN STRAIGHT HE'S NOT HER FATHER.

But he's old enough to be her great grandfather! :p Though she should be legal by now and Bobby is apparently running around with that hussy who can walk through walls, so, hey, I guess she's free to suck the life out of him again. :)
I was fretting and angsting about the BSG finale, then I watched the X3 trailer online, oh, something like 6 times in a row, and I'm so excited now! I used to read the comics when I was younger, and I love the films, so this radically improved my mood. I called my brother and was all sjejkitldjnjefffjkawatchthetrailernow!, and then we squeed geekily for a while, because some of the mutants who weren't in the first two films appear here. I hope that the Dark Phoenix storyline will be done well, and...I'm just soooo bouncy about this!

I agree with you about Hugh Jackman, but I'd add Ian McKellen as a huge factor of improvement here. His Magneto is GREAT, and more than compensates for Halle Berry's rather blah portrayal of someone who should be one of my favourite characters.
The BSG finale is tying me in knots too. And part of me is actually looking forward to the season being over so I can just stop with the obsessing for awhile. But then after a few weeks I'm sure I'll miss new episodes. Maybe they'll post deleted scenes online. Like the ones they keep showing us in the previouslies. ;p

I'll have to look for the X3 trialer online. I really want to see it again. It's gotten me quite excited for May 26th. I'm really pleased they went with a live-action beast (and I feel Kelsey Grammer is a good choice). Live actors and CGI actors don't blend well together most of the time. (See the 'Star Wars' prequels.)

I think the films have done an excellent job of casting overall. I believe it was Patrick Stewart who was one of the first cast and I thought he was a perfect choice - in physical appearance and we already knew he took sci-fi/action seriously. Then there was Ian. And Hugh was such a marvelous discovery. Even if he is a foot too tall for the role. ;)

Halle and James Marsden have proven the weak links. I saw some improvement with her and the last film, but I'm still paralyzed with not caring very much. And James I think proved such a huge disappointment in a pivital role that they continue to relgate him to supporting status. It looked like Logan and Storm were taking over the leadership role with Cyclops angsting in a forest somewhere.
Now we see Logan on his knees crying being comforted by Storm in front of Xavier's empty wheelchair. That can't be good.

Given that I don't actually consider myself fannish about those films, it's funny how the promo pics of the funeral make me go OMGnooo! Xavier can't die!

And I'm with brynnmck on the father issue. :-)

Hey, if it can make Wolverine weep like a baby, it's baaaad.

So, is Wolverine/Rogue popular in the fandom? I still lean towards Wolverine/Jean and I have a tendancy (Lee/Laura being an exception ;) of shipping popular pairings. Though, to this day I still don't know if Buffy/Angel or Buffy/Spike has the edge in the shipper wars.
