Michael Fassbender & Alicia Vikander Visit Mon Thai Spa In Blenheim, NZ
A BRIEF UPDATE ON MICHAEL IN NZ
Single malt whisky, Marlborough wine and local brews went down well on Saturday night for the cast and crew of the DreamWorks movie being filmed in Marlborough.
About 80 people arrived at Grovetown Hotel on State Highway 1 near Blenheim to celebrate actress Alicia Vikander’s 26th birthday.
Vikander arrived in Marlborough last month to begin filming The Light Between Oceans, a DreamWorks Studios adaptation of a book by M L Stedman. She is starring alongside A-list actor and X-Men star Michael Fassbender and Oscar winner Rachel Weisz.
On Saturday, Vikander danced the night away with Fassbender, director Derek Cianfrance, producer David Heyman and executive producer Rosie Alison and producer Jeffrey Clifford. Australian actor Jack Thompson was also believed to have made an appearance.
Weisz is believed to be arriving for filming in Dunedin at the end of next week.
Grovetown Hotel owner Damian Johnson said it was the first group event the cast and crew had had since filming began in mid-September.
"This is the first time they have had a shindig
Grovetown Hotel “has become a bit of a local hangout for them. The crew come out here quite a bit because it’s out of town and a little bit low key,” he said.
"I think they like it out here because we treat them like everyone else. The only thing I had to keep doing was stocking the top-shelf single-malt whisky."
They partied from about 8.30pm to 2.30am, when Johnson dropped them back to their accommodation, he said. “It was a big shindig. There was lots and lots of dancing from 80s music to reggae, to dub - they loved it.”
While Johnson admitted he was not a movie kind of guy, he said he did know who most of the stars were. However, when Fassbender came into the pub a week ago, Johnson said he did not recognise him.
"Michael came in last Friday and said: ‘Hi, I’m Michael’. I said: ‘Hey mate, I’m Damian’. He said: ‘You’ll probably know who I am from my movies’ and I said: ‘Nah mate, sorry, I don’t watch a lot of movies’."
Throughout the night, Johnson served Japanese-Kiwi fusion platters, including sushi, steam fried dumplings, spring rolls and Japanese fried chicken. A massive cake weighing about 15 kilograms was brought out at one point and everyone sang Happy Birthday to Vikander, he said.
A 4-year-old New Zealand girl, who plays the young girl in the film, helped set up LED fairy lights with her parents and some of the cast on the Friday.
The stars, producers, director and crew have been spotted wandering Blenheim’s streets, enjoying small-town life and the great coffee.
The Express understands filming will wrap up in Marlborough in about 10 days. Filming started in the province at an undisclosed location at the end of September. Scenes are also being filmed in Dunedin and Tasmania.
The movie is about a lighthouse keeper and his wife who live on a remote island off Western Australia after World War I.
They find a boat washed ashore carrying a dead man and a 2-year-old child. The couple decide they will raise the child as their own but the consequences of their choice are devastating.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' First Synopsis Revealed
With today’s announcement that Fox just closed a deal with Bryan Singer to direct ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ comes the newly revealed first synopsis of the film:
"Apocalypse takes place a decade after Days of Future Past and is a seamless next step in the story. The altering of time has unleashed a new and uniquely powerful enemy. Charles (James McAvoy), Erik/Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Hank/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) are joined by young Cyclops, Storm, Jean and others as the X-Men must fight their most formidable foe yet: an ancient unrelenting force determined to cause an apocalypse unlike any in human history. The universe continues to expand with characters, and maybe this is the one where Channing Tatum comes aboard as Remy LeBeau, better known as Gambit, which has been widely rumored even by the Foxcatcher star himself.”
I’m gonna need to know who’s playing young Storm like rrright away.

Michael Fassbender Poses For A Pic With A Fan Today In New Zealand
That’s Real Great About ‘Apocalypse’ Starting Principal Photography In April But Um…
Yeah, I’ma need 20th Century Fox to hop on that ish…like yesterday.
Seriously, this man is serving all kinds of greatness as that character and I cannot be satisfied with these scraps they’re throwing us in terms of screen time any longer. Ensembles are
charitable great but Michael Fassbender’s Magneto needs his own film. Look at that photo above. Look at that face. Why does young Magneto not yet have a film in the pipeline?
Then we get this in DoFP:
Still serving all kinds of badassery, still raising all kinds of hell, still not giving a fuck what you think of him, still hating your non-mutant behind and still making you love him. Fassbender.
The man deserves his own Magneto movie. Why? Because…
Oh, and I’m gonna need Quicksilver all up in it ‘cuz Evan Peters is baby Bae.
Can we make this happen, Fox? And soon, man. Not 5 years down the line.
This has been a stan rant.
X-Men: Apocalypse Will Begin Filming In April 2015 In Montreal
When X-Men: Days of the Future Past was released earlier this year the franchise was at a definite crossroads. 20th Century Fox took a huge gamble by reuniting an enormous cast of returning actors with a production budget of over $200 million dollars. If the film was received badly it could have crushed the property. However the movie performed extraordinarily well, grossing over $745 million dollars at the global box office and critics loved it as well (read our review). During the leadup to the film’s release, director Bryan Singer (whose legal entanglements have since cleared up) openly talked about his and writer Simon Kinberg’s plans for the next movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. Those plans were confirmed with the after-credits scene which featured a young En Sabah Nur, the young Apocalypse, in ancient Egypt.
Filming for X-Men: Apocalypse will begin in April 2015, in Montreal. According to ScreenRant, set construction will begin in December and all signs are pointing to the core members of the First Class team returning including Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, and Jennifer Lawrence, and perhaps some members of the older cast. (It seems that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is a given at least.) Singer previously gave his thoughts on the upcoming sequel to Slashfilm:
"We’re going to deal (with) the notion of ancient mutants – the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago. But it’ll be a contemporary movie – well, it’ll take place in the ’80s… The ’80s is a period now – it’s hard for me to believe that! ‘Apocalypse’ will have more of the mass destruction that ‘X-Men’ films, to date, have not relied upon. There’s definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle…One thing that interests me is the notion of ancient mutants. What would people thousands of years ago, without the benefit of science, think mutants were? And more importantly, what would mutants thousands of years ago think they were? Gods? Titans? Angels? Demons? And if such mutants did exist thousands of years ago, what became of them? Did one survive?"
This will be the X-Men franchise’s first disaster movie. It almost sounds as if there will be destruction on a Man of Steel scale. Hopefully much like the last film, all the set pieces and action serves the plot’s larger purpose. Apocalypse is one of the first mutants in Marvel lore and it seems that Singer is going to give him a serious god complex. The film will be set in the 80’s which should be fun for the crew, which did a great job with 70’s themed production design in Days of the Future Past. Even more exciting is the introduction of the core members of the X-Men who have yet to be seen in the franchise’s new timeline. Expect to see Cyclops and Jean Grey, and judging by past comments it is very likely we could see characters such as Angel, Nightcrawler and Gambit.
X-Men: Apocalypse will open on theaters on May 27th, 2016.
