The reviews for X-Men: Apocalypse are rolling in from across the pond, and so far they’re a resounding “meh”. Admittedly, this particular franchise isn’t my thing, despite starring several favorites — Fassbender, Hoult, Turner, Isaac, Byrne, and at the top of the list: Sir Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy. That said, I’ll watch the publicity rounds and in particular, this video, all day long. McAvoy heads to his trailer to prep for playing a more Stewart-like Xavier, Sir Patrick pops in to watch the big moment, and cheer James on.
McAvoy: “I’m finally understanding what it’s like to be you.”
Stewart: “The difference is that I looked like that when I was 19.”
Me: “Who’s looking at your head?”
