When Sir Patrick Stewart ties the knot with jazz singer Sunny Ozell, his friend and co-star Sir Ian McKellen is going to do the honors.
McKellen revealed as much on the U.K.'s "Jonathan Ross Show" this weekend, after Ross brought up the fact that McKellen is returning as Magneto in "X-Men: Days of Future Past," which will also see Stewart reprise his role of Professor X.

The “X-Men: First Class” sequel won’t bow until July 2014, but speculating about it is bound to be easier now that producer Bryan Singer has shared the flick’s title with fans.
The James McAvoy- and Michael Fassbender-starrer will be called “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” The title comes from the ‘80s comic of the same name and is set in a dystopian future (which should be familiar to “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique in the franchise.)

The American-made superhero flick "X-Men: First Class" may seem an unusual choice for Scottish star James McAvoy, who earned critical raves for British dramas like "The Last King of Scotland" and "Atonement"—but then again, the actor says U.K. movies just aren't what they used to be.
"We make loads of movies to try and hit in America, and yet it's never the ones aimed at America that do well. We dumb our movies down because we want Americans to understand them," the BAFTA winner tells SkyNews.
"Then Americans watch it and go, 'This is a really unsophisticated, dumbed-down movie. Why would we buy this? Why do we like this? We don't.' It's like we're patronizing them and short-changing ourselves," he says.

"Harry Potter" fans have literally been waiting years for an extended glimpse of the final battle between Harry and Voldemort, and they finally got it on Wednesday night when the trailer for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" was released.
The trailer promises non-stop action - with wands flying and enough explosions to rival a Michael Bay film - in the final showdown at Hogwarts between the boy wizard and He-Who-Must-Not -Be-Named.

After a long wait (and lots of refreshing on the movie's official Facebook page yesterday), fans are finally getting their first look at the prequel, "X-Men: First Class," due in theaters on June 3.
The trailer draws a direct connection between the first three "X-Men" movies (especially the first two, directed by Bryan Singer) and this, so it's not a reboot in the same way as the upcoming Andrew Garfield/Marc Webb version of "Spider-Man." This movie takes us back to the beginnings of the X-Men, during the Kennedy era (the comic book made its debut just a few months before his assassination).
We get to see James McAvoy ("Wanted") and Michael Fassbender take on the roles of Professor Xavier and Magneto, so memorably portrayed by Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen in the earlier films. Worth noting: Xavier is able to walk in this movie, and we also see Fassbender don the iconic Magneto helmet.
