X3 Is Keeping Secrets...

Hey guys, it's Donnie...Well, I guess I feel a little bit better now.

Patrick Stewart appeared at a big Star Trek convention in Vegas this week and he let slip a t asty little nougat concerning X3:
"We have shot five days on X-Men 3. Already some amazing things have been put in the can, some surprises — [including] one surprise which will never even appear in a script form. We've just shot it. It's so secret, that there was never, ever allowed anything to be on paper about it."

When asked about Brett Ratner taking over the franchise: "I think Brett Ratner is going to do a fantastic job on this movie. He's an extraordinary, gifted man, and I think the perfect choice to direct X3. We miss Bryan Singer, of course, because this is the man that launched this franchise so outstandingly."
Considering that most of the early criticism has sprouted from script reviews, this is probably the best possible news we could get. That there's some big important surprising moment in the film that we don't know about yet and won't know about until it starts screening in front of people. Who knows what it is, but perhaps it will balance out the crap we have heard about. As far as Stewart's words concerning his new director, well, actors never badmouth a director they're currently working with, so that bit is kind of meaningless.

Either way, it's anothing point to add to the "List of Things I'm Looking Forward To" in this movie. If I'm lucky, that's the list that will continue to grow, and not the "List of Things That Will Probably Suck Balls."
