Hi, thought this would be quiet cool to have, discuss and so forth... This is the first x-men film to be shot mostly in the UK, so i thought Lets discuss locations and possible sets that could appear in x-men first class, whilst also reporting news and photos of filming on sets.

But intil they start filming, where do people feel we will see in this movie. I have a few ideas.

I have a theory, see London doesnt really have much to do with Xaviers life growing up. And i dont think they will film in westchester or the familiar hartley castle that we saw in the previous films.

So i figure we might see alot of filming done in Oxford

firstly Charles Xaviers history sees him studying at Oxford University. Then if you look at Oxfordshire there is lots of buildings similar to that of Hatley Castle, so i figure they might film around that area for alot of external shots... but think of this as well Rosamund Pike studied at Wadham college in Oxford. And she is playing Moria McTaggart who met Charles Xavier in Oxford University. it would just make sense.

So here is my ideas for filming

This is Oxford University


Mapledurham House somewhere in Oxford... Looks very similar to Xaviers Mansion... although red bricked and hartley castle was white or gray bricked in the comics the mansion was rebuilt several times.

Just looking around, if Muir island was 50 miles off the northern coastline of scottland, this could possibly be a contender for the island...

Fair Island


This picture reminds me of the episode of x-men animated when rogue goes to find the cure to mutation...

I guess if they use a different facade for the mansion, they could always destroy it and built it bigger and better. Go the Batman Begins route and reinforce the lower levels, as well as fortify the school in general and provide the secret passages we saw in X2.

Thats actually quiet a good idea.

I mean, the x-mansion hasnt been destroyed in any of the movies as of yet but in the comics it has happened more than once.

Essential the building as seen above could of been what xaviers mansion originally looked like before they build the new one.

And since we never saw the mansion in flashbacks or in Wolverine, it's not stepping on any toes by changing that bad boy

That must mean that Black Tom is the villain and that he's turning everything into wood with his Secondary and Tertiary Mutations!1!

Some filming for DOFP may possibly take place in Québec City. Decision should be made soon apparently.


From Le Journal de Québec (Tuesday, March 5, 2013):
Quote:
Ça regarde bien pour 2013

À la Ville de Québec, on se réjouit de voir débarquer ces cinéastes. Selon une porte-parole, l’année 2013 devait au moins égaler 2012 quant au nombre de tournages, toutes catégories confondues (cinéma, télé, publicité). L’an dernier, Québec avait reçu 87 productions, pour 312 jours de tournage.

Parmi les films qui ont choisi Québec pour décor en 2012, notons Les Pee-Wee 3D, qui a récolté 2,3 millions de dollars en salle, Sarah préfère la course, le premier long-métrage de Chloé Robichaud, la coproduction franco-québécoise Deux temps trois mouvements, avec Aure Atika et Anne-Marie Cadieux, Maïna, du réalisateur Michel Poulette, et Dragons : Real Myths and Unreal Creatures.

«Pour le moment, nous n’avons rien d’autre à annoncer mais d’autres projets devraient se concrétiser durant l’année 2013. Nous sommes très contents avec les Boys. Nous avons trente des trente-quatre jours de tournage. On croit que 2013 sera aussi fort que 2012. Plusieurs publicités sont tournées ici», indique Rose-Marie Ayotte, à la Ville de Québec.

On espère aussi que quelques scènes du nouveau X-Men, dont le tournage aura lieu à partir du mois d’avril à Montréal, soient tournées à Québec. Une décision pourrait être prise prochainement. Jennifer Lawrence en est la tête d’affiche.

Are there any SHH members based in the Montreal/Québec area?
