First Looks At Beast In 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' & Dane DeHaan In Metallica Movie, Plus New Still From 'A Field In England'

We knew that “X-Men: Days of Future Past” would be hopping between different time periods due to the nature of the story, but we didn’t know what those time periods would be. Well, we still don’t entirely (will the present-day stuff be pre or post “X-Men: The Last Stand”?), but we now know for certain that at least some of the film will be set in the ‘70s thanks to a new tweeted pic of a young Beast and age-unknown Wolverine together. It’s a pretty cool image and the ‘70s costumes look pretty great…although of course Logan’s still sporting that timeless jacket of his. This thing could still be an unwieldy mess, but we can’t help but be impressed by what Singer’s shown us so far.

X-Men Field, days of future past

Completely different, and from a completely different period – the 17th Century, no less – is a new image from Ben Wheatley’s fourth feature, “A Field in England.” Pictured is Reece Shearsmith, who takes the lead role in what’s being described as Wheatley’s “psychedelic trip into magic and madness” amidst the English Civil War. Basically we’re going to see English Civil War deserters tripping on mushrooms and the inevitable fallout from that, and if the stills we’re seeing are anything to go by the film’s going to have an interesting and distinct visual style. The film will make its bow in the UK on July 5th, and was recently acquired by Drafthouse Films for a planned US release later this year. [Mr. And Mrs Wheatley]

And finally, we’ve also got a first look at Nimrod Antal’s “Metallica Through The Never,” featuring the soon to be enormous star Dane DeHaan. The “Chronicle” and future Harry Osborn actor can be seen here as one of the titular band’s crew members who’s sent out on a mission by the band through a sold-out arena whilst they play on-stage. The film will marry concert footage with a fictional narrative involving DeHaan’s character who “unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down” during his mission. Sounds fascinating, and it’s a top piece of casting, so color us intrigued for this one. [EW]
