Nicholas Hoult Tells us Why Beast Isn’t Blue for Some of Days of Future Past

Among the many events of X-Men: First Class was the extended origin of Hank McCoy, AKA Beast, who attempted to cure his visual mutant traits using some of Mystique’s DNA or whatever, and instead made himself hairy and blue. Eagle eyed folks have been given to wonder, if Beast got all fuzzy in the last movie, what’s with the shots of a normal looking Nicholas Hoult in the trailer for its sequel? Hoult himself has explained.

Beast And Magneto Play In The Kiddie Pool On Set of X-Men: Days of Future Past

Nicholas Hoult and Michael Fassbender were recently spotted on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past acting like little children. Ok, technically they were filming what appears to be a fight scene but in between takes they splashed around like kids on a hot summer’s day. A few more shots after the jump.

Things We Saw Today: Beast’s New X-Men: Days Of Future Past Look

For the most part, I loved X-Men: First Class but one thing I hated was how absolutely terrible Beast looked. Thanks to a tweet by Bryan Singer, it looks like Nicholas Hoult will be getting an updated look in X-Men: Days of Future Past. (via Blastr

Get Inside the Head of the Undead in this Clip from Warm Bodies [VIDEO]

Like Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland before it, Warm Bodies is a zomromcom, or a romantic comedy… with zombies. Except in Warm Bodies the main character is a zombie, not someone in danger of being eaten by one. The first four minutes give us a look at the internal monologue of one of the undead, played by Nicholas Hoult. And it’s not all BRAAAINNNNS, BRAAAINNNNS, BRAAAINNNNS.

Warm Bodies Doesn’t Look Like Twilight With Zombies After All [Trailer]

When I first heard about Isaac Marion’s Warm Bodies I thought it was Twilight with zombies instead of vampires. It’s about a zombie and a human who fall in love and it just happens to come from Summit Entertainment, the Twilight studio. That’s all well and good but then I watched the trailer and now I might actually want to see it. Why? Not only is it funny (on purpose) but it adds an interesting layer to the zombie mythos and I’d like to see how it plays out. Take a look for yourself. The film stars Nicholas Hault, Teresa Palmer, and John Malkovich.

Things We Saw Today: The New Logo For DC Comics?

So…this happened. On the left is the current DC Comics logo. On the right is what Bleeding Cool is reporting as their newly designed logo for both DC Comics and DC Entertainment. BC points out that when the old logo was revealed in 2005 it was universally panned but well-liked now. And guess what? Everyone already hates it. We can’t imagine why… Hit the jump for all the other stuff we saw today!

Beast Gets Schooled by JK Simmons in Insurance Commercial [Video]

At some point, commercials for insurance stopped being about the drama that befalls us after tragedy and became sources of comedy and entertainment. But one of the more memorable campaigns belongs to Farmers Insurance and its spokescharacter Professor Nathaniel Burke of the University of Farmers, who is played by JK Simmons. The cult-astic actor, who appeared as J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man trilogy, has maintained his Marvel connections by appearing with X-Men: First Class‘s Beast in this cross-promotional spot. Beast — not played by Nicholas Hoult here — is an “X-change student” from “the X-Men school,” whose counterpart is used as target practice by Havok (who is played by Lucas Till in a scene from the movie).
