At first I was like, Anne-Marie Duff looks awfully hot and sweaty and disheveled to be at a public event.
Then I looked at that second photo of her and her hubby all cozy-like and realized one way she might have wound up so disheveled.
That is just what I would do if I had James McAvoy at my disposal. Well-played, Anne-Marie.
Everyone is allowed to have one celebrity couple that would make them honestly sad if the couple broke up. Mine is Anne-Marie Duff and James McAvoy because they always looks so happy with each other.
I’ve never actually seen James McAvoy as Leto II in “Children of Dune.”
… that really needs to change, doesn’t it?
Shirtless James McAvoy
I recommend watching SciFi’s Dune miniseries first. The story is still a little off, since there is a lot being condensed, but I think it’s more understandable that way.
(I really need to rewatch Children of Dune. Last time I saw it the name James McAvoy meant nothing to me. Because I was twelve. Or thirteen. Can’t remember when the miniseries came out.)
(My dad couldn’t believe I hadn’t already read DUNE when I was twelve and promptly loaned me the entire series. He was not the content-censoring parent.)
(Please note that the is almost simultaneous with when he realized I hadn’t read Anne Rice yet and clearly I needed to read those immediately since I loved vampires. That series was a bit of an education.)
(I don’t think I was too young, personally, to read either series at twelve. But I do not think they’re the usual series that parents give to their preteen children when they actually know what is in the books.)
Anyway, my point was, yes, you should watch Children of Dune. But you might want to watch the non-David Lynch Dune first.
It’s incredibly shallow of me, but every time I see this still, my thoughts are as follows: 1) HOT, 2) I totally believe that Erik left his fashion sense behind when he broke up with Charles. Lamentations, rending of garments, etc.
When I read about the costuming of Charles Xavier in the film (sixth picture in the gallery), I trufax punched the air and shouted, VINDICATED. To wit:
“He’s still stylish, but in a laidback and understated way,” says Sheldon, who sourced classic suiting materials from the shops on London’s Saville Row.
Yes, the cut/colours could be more flattering, but it’s all about lasting quality and comfort for exorbitant sums, not flash — Charles’s clothes speak to his class and academic background. James McAvoy has surprisingly (for his height, in relation to Michael Fassbender) broad chest and shoulders. His wardrobe for most of the movie, however, serves to de-emphasise that.
I’m just happy they’re doing an XM:FC sequel. I turned on the television last night just in time for the Beach Divorce. That scene still gets to me.
I’ll always be a DC girl, but in an odd way the X-Men are my favorites. It doesn’t help that the movies have fantastic casting.
