Virgin Trains’ ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Unwrapping

March 31, 2014 || Written by Kristina in Articles, Gallery, General News, Press, Public Appearances, Videos || No Comments

X-Men: Days of Future Past might still be two months away from hitting theaters, but that isn’t stopping Fox from doing some early promotional work for the movie. Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy joined forces in London earlier today, March 31st, to help Virgin unveil a new train sporting an array of iconic mutants. Photos from the event have been added to the gallery. Check out an article about the “unwrapping” below (including some quotes from Hugh), as well a couple of videos below the cut.

Hugh, 45, admitted getting a train with his face emblazoned on it was a far cry from his earlier days when he backpacked around Europe.

“It’s some sort of wish fulfilment in life, when you’re a young boy, to walk onto your own train. I pretty much lived on trains (before), because when I was 18, I got an InterRail card. It was about £250 and I was on £10 a day, so we slept on trains,” he said.

“I was that smelly guy in the corner, just outside the bathroom that people would have to step over. I would be swearing and drinking with my mates, so I got kicked off from many a train.”

The Australian actor joked about his co-star appearing on the first class carriage, with his own carriage located further back, saying: “I think it’s totally appropriate that he’s first class and I’m way up the back. It’s pretty wild.”

“It is epic-ness, it is huge on a scale, not just visually but emotionally. Character and relationship-wise, it is quite epic with what we all go through,” James teased.

Hugh added: “It is massive. It is by far the biggest. I had this unbelievable opportunity to work with not only James, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, but the older actors playing the same characters – Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Ellen Page. It was unbelievable, and the story is intricate. It is fun, it is massive and I think it is going to deliver beyond what people expect.”

Hugh Jackman the jet-setter arrived in Zurich, Switzerland earlier today (September 28th) for the 2013 Zurich Film Festival. His first business was the Prisoners press conference, which also welcomed director Denis Villeneuve, producer Kira Davis, and co-star Melissa Leo (who is serving as a juror at the festival). You can watch video of the panel below, which is entirely in English.
