So, if director of “X-Men: Apocalypse” Bryan Singer got a bit emotional during the filming of the movie, we won’t get surprised. What is surprising is Michael Fassbender is the reason why the director shed a few tears. Read On!
According to Cinema Blend, director Bryan Singer was at the San Pedro International Film Festival where he was to talk about the 20th anniversary of “The Usual Suspects” and that’s when the “X-Men: Apocalypse” issue came up.
Talking about his upcoming movie, Bryan admitted that the movie is indeed emotional and it was at this moment when Michael Fassbender made him cry in front of everyone, but despite that he was trying to remain calm.
Elaborating the issue, the director said that when they were at the end scene of the movie, Michael asked him not to yell cut and continued to do something once the scene was over.
Unfortunately, the director did not reveal as to what exactly did Michael do, but he did mention that it made him cry back in the tent, which had have never happened before.
Joining him in the emotional moment was the head of his company and Simon Kinberg, the writer who the director mentioned as someone who has no emotions at all. When the director was probed further as to what actually did Michael Fassbender do, he added that he had not seen any actor do this for him and it was not really a comic book movie scene at all. He added that given the uniqueness of the nature of the thing that Michael did, there are chances that the scene might not even make it to the final cut.
IGN reported that “X-Men: Apocalypse” will be a wrap-up of six movies. The movie will release on May 27th next year.
