Anna Paquin as Rogue on the cover of Empire Magazine

Posted by Lynnpd On January - 27 - 2014

Empire Magazine is launching a limited edition of 25 individual character covers from X-Men: Days of Future Past for their newest issue. Even though Anna Paquin’s scenes as Rogue were cut from the film, they decided to include her character in the covers they made.

Is it possible that Anna could be back in the series in the future?

Empire Magazine is launching a limited edition of 25 individual character covers from X-Men: Days of Future Past for their newest issue. Even though Anna Paquin’s scenes as Rogue were cut from the film, they decided to include her character in the covers they made. Below is Anna as she would have appeared in the part of Rogue in the latest film in the series.

It’s set to be one of the biggest superhero movies of all-time.. at least, in terms of characters. But while ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ has an already hefty ensemble cast, it seems there’s one mutant the fans just can’t do without.

After rumours that Anna Paquin would return as fan-favourite, Rogue, it looked as though director Bryan Singer might have given her the chop. Explaining that she was set to appear in just a single scene, it seems that time constraints meant the cameo appearance just had to go.

“Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous,” he said. “It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in.”

And that was the end of that… or so we thought. But now, Anna Paquin has taken centre-stage in a newly released Empire Magazine cover. And it’s led many to believe that she may have made it back into the movie after all.

Unfortunately, there’s no official word. At least, not yet… but Empire promise that a definitive answer will be found inside their latest issue.

For those asking if our Rogue cover means Rogue is in the movie, a definitive statement from Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg is in the issue.

- Empire Magazine (@empiremagazine) January 28, 2014 –  Of course, whether or not Anna Paquin makes the cut remains to be seen. But it looks as though we’ll find out soon enough. Personally, I think they’d be mad not to include her in the final cut of the film. And as a fan-favourite, it’s likely to put a smile on the faces of most ‘X-Men’ fans. But for now, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer talk collaborating as a couple

Posted by Lynnpd On January - 10 - 2014

We all know the story about Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer falling in love while playing star-crossed lovers on True Blood. Nowadays, Stephen and Anna have been married for several years with four children, but they also keep busy in other ways than family life. To promote CASM’s new film, in which Anna is starring, “Free Ride,” the couple sat down for an interview with Elle Magazine. Below is part of that interview.

Anna+Paquin+Stephen+Moyer+Free+Ride+Cast+Photo+mdZV64rfoXWlAnd though season seven of the vampire drama doesn’t return until summer, the couple’s latest effort, co-producing the thriller Free Ride (out today) stars Paquin as Christina, a single mom in the late ’70s who turns to pot smuggling to make ends meet. In real life, however, these two couldn’t be further from dire straits. The frisky duo let ELLE.com in on their disparate uses for cough medicine, bedroom seduction tactics, and how not to make an indie film.

What’s it like when you’re working together in different capacities?
Anna Paquin: It’s just as well that we like each other. [Giggles]
Stephen Moyer: It’s how we met; I think that’s key. We met working, and seeing each other in each other’s working environment. And she works really hard, which always makes me feel like I don’t do enough. So that’s really good to be around, because that makes me kind of ramp up.
 
So you don’t have to crack the whip with her,when you’re directing or producing…
SM: That’s at home. That’s in the bedroom.
AP: Excuse me! [Laughs] Please try to restrain yourself from saying anything completely inappropriate. Ignore him.
 
Are we getting a little sneak peek at how you guys would handle disputes, either on set or not?
SM: When it comes to disputes, it’s usually more of a …
AP: Discussion.
SM: … a discussion about where you’re trying to get to and what you’re trying to do. Anna was very good to me the first couple of times I directed, because she knew that I was under pressure, so she did everything that I asked. By the second or third time, it was more like, ‘You’re asking me to do something that is actually not humanly possible.’
AP: I’d go, ‘Actually, I can’t. I’m really sorry. My go-go dancer arms are at home.’ [Laughs]
 
You start shooting ‘True Blood’ again this month—and it’s the final season. What do you hope happens for Sookie?
AP: Honestly? There’s so many directions it could go in, and one of the things I love about our show is that I still get excited reading the scripts. There’s a part of me that doesn’t want to do the, ‘Oh, I hope this happens,’ or ‘What if this happens?’ because they’re pretty damn good.
SM: Three or four seasons into the show, we might have been able to tell you what we thought would be the end, or what we hoped would be the end. But by the time you get to season seven, I don’t know if anybody other than the guys creating it know what the best ending is. And so ultimately you have to sort of trust them to wind it up in a way that hopefully satisfies everybody a little bit. Because you’re not ever going to be able to make everybody happy. And the huge Eric fans…
AP: …or the huge Alcide fans…
SM: …or the huge Bill fans…
 
Or the huge Bill-and-Eric fans…
SM: Or the huge Bill-and-Eric fans …
AP: Beric?
SM: Beric fans! They’ll hopefully be able to tick off a lot of boxes, but you’re not going to be able to make that perfect ending.
One way to maybe satisfy everyone at once is to make Sookie’s fantasy of a Bill-Eric threesome come true.
AP: Yeah, that was an interesting day of production. And not just because I ended up half-naked on a couch with two different men. But just because that’s an awfully long time to spend walking around…
SM: …in red lingerie. Particularly attractive red lingerie!
AP: This is the point where he would say something that you don’t need to know about!
SM: Because he can’t help himself.

New Clip from Anna Paquin’s new film – Free Ride

Posted by Lynnpd On January - 3 - 2014

ps4_freeride_posterAnna Paquin’s new film, Free Ride opens in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles on January 10. It will also be available to watch via various Video On Demand platforms. Below is another video giving us a glimpse of Anna in the film.

Anna playhs Christina, an enterprising young woman who enters the underground drug scene in Florida. Once she gains entry to the criminal world, she discovers, according to the official synopsis, that “dealing drugs at the height of South Florida’s smuggling heyday has its price. As law enforcement closes in on Christina and her drug operation, she must find a way to salvage the life she has desperately worked to repair before it all comes crashing down.”

Shana Betz wrote and directed the film, and Anna and Stephen Moyer’s company, CASM produced it. This is the first film for the company and it is based on Shana Betz’s real-life experiences. Drea de Matteo, Cam Gigandet and Liana Liberato also star. Additionally, the cast includes True Blood’s Brit Morgan who played Debbie Pelt. Watch the clip below to get a taste of the South Florida atmosphere and a tiny inkling about Anna Paquin’s character.

X-Men: Days of Future Past Loses Anna Paquin’s Rogue

Posted by Lynnpd On December - 20 - 2013

rogueDirector Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects) has revealed to EW exclusively that a rescue sequence — shot early in the film’s production and featuring Magneto (Ian McKellen), Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Rogue (Anna Paquin), and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) — has been cut from the final film. Sadly, this means that Rogue’s screen time has been significantly chopped down as well.

Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous,” explains Singer. “It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.

Singer emphasizes that the decision had nothing to do with the Oscar-winning True Blood star, who was on set for only week of Days of Future Past, or with her performance. “She did a fantastic job,” says the director. “She was awesome in the sequence. She’s a brilliant actress. I would work with her in a heartbeat.”

Singer, who is still editing the film in advance of its release on May 23, 2014, has already broken the news to Paquin. “She completely understood, he says. “It’s very disappointing, but she’s very professional and she knows that stuff happens, particularly with material you shoot early on in production. Films evolve.”

Anna Paquin receives a package in “Free Ride” video clip

Posted by Lynnpd On December - 18 - 2013

free-ride-anna-paquin-skip-cropBelow is another clip from Anna Paquin’s new film, “Free Ride.”.  The film, co-starring Drea de Matteo, Cam Gigandet and Liana Liberato, opens in NY and LA  and hits VOD on January 10, 2014.

The “True Blood” star produces and leads the forthcoming “Free Ride,” with hubby Stephen Moyer for their production company, CASM. Written and directed by Shane Betz. The ’70s set film follows Christina, a woman who heads to Florida escaping a tumultuous relationship and falls into the lucrative drug dealing scene. But soon she’s fighting for her life as the authorities come closing in.

In this video clip, Christina (Anna) receives a mysterious package, just one of many that she doesn’t seem too eager to open. While stakes are high and the perils numerous, the drug game remains an attractive option for the desperate for what it promises to those who can navigate that world: quick cash. And lots of it. But as Anna Paquin will soon find out, getting there isn’t so easy.

Watch below.

Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer shoot commercial in L.A.

Posted by Shadaliza On December - 12 - 2013

Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin are seen in the photos below on their way to shoot an Time/Warner HBO commercial. The couple looked great as usual. Anna looked great in what must be a “Sookie outfit,” a blue dress, white cardigan sweater and flat black shoes.

For the commercial, Stephen and Anna were to hired to play their True Blood roles Bill and Sookie.

P. Diddy who was to co-star with the couple in the commercial previously inked a deal with Time Warner over the summer for his soon to launch music channel, Revolt TV, which will reach 10 million of the cable provider’s subscribers.

Perhaps this is a commercial for that channel as well as HBO? We guess we’ll find out when it airs!

Apparently, Diddy delayed production; we’re not sure why.

This means new promo coming for True Blood I think, can’t wait, what about you?
