The press conference for X-Men: Days of Future Past had its share of light and informative moments. For one, Hugh Jackman talked about how screenwriter Simon Kinberg tied the themes of the latest film with the 2000 original X-Men.
“One of the many things (Simon) did brilliantly with the script was invert everything that happened in (X-Men) where Professor X was a mentor-guide for Wolverine and that became the opposite for this movie,” said Jackman.
Even though X-Men: Days of Future Past explores different generations of the X-Men characters, the narrative, to Jackman, is actually a “fresh beginning” for the franchise.

Brit Marling (Another Earth) co-writes and stars in The East, a thriller about a former FBI agent whose new job at an intelligence firm leads her to infiltrating an organization that wages war on what they deem as corrupt corporations. Ellen Page, who co-stars in the film as one of the members of the group, says one of the reasons she joined the project was her love for Sound Of My Voice, a 2011 feature that was headlined by Brit Marling and directed by The East filmmaker Zal Batmanglij.
“Their passion and their creative drive is just palpable, and just infectious and contagious,” said Page. “I just wanted to be a part of their work.”
