Default Re: The Official JANUARY JONES/Emma Frost Thread - Part 1

I am not going to deny that January Jones looked great dressed like Emma Frost, filling out those almost always impossible comic book standards fanboys have. And in the role she was mostly designated to in XFC--essentially a Bond girl henchwoman--she was....passable. Kind of.

She is fine on Mad Men, but her performance as Emma Frost was unfortunately very poor. And if that is the Emma Frost in this universe, one that already has plenty of psychic characters with Xavier and Jean, and they could still introduce Psyclocke in a future film, she is not really needed either. Though a better send-off would have been nice, I will concede. But it did not hurt this picture.

I don't understand her line delivery in 'First Class' whereas in Mad Men she's fine.. As if she was uncomfortable or nervous, hens his stiffness.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
When Magneto mentioned those names did he said if the died or just" We have lost too many friends, etc..." If Emma and Banshee are merely "lost", that doesn't mean they are dead. We only assume they are because Magneto grouped them together with Azazel and Angel who were actually dead because of the autopsy reports. Emma could have been imprisoned by Trask all this time, and no one will know. In fact Trask does not skill all of his subjects. Otherwise how does one explain Mystique's presence in the OT?

Movie rules, you have to see them die and then they might still come back.

exactly my point. emma was in the hellfire club in the dark phoenix saga. like i said, after that, he probably doesnt know emma is an important character in the x-books and is an actual effin' x-men now!

check out instagram for #daysoffuturepast

there are photos of the autopsy there. like i said, she's in that shot. and her body was at the bottom middle. you can tell it's her because she was sporting white painted finger nails exactly how she wore them in FC (I think she's wearing a white skirt in the photo too) and the way they cut parts of her skin seemed an indication that they were studying her diamond form.

I have a feeling she won't be back. That's a shame as she is an interesting character.

While I doubt Emma will be back, I find it hard to believe that she is dead. In my head cannon, she just made people she is dead.

This. it would probably be easier for a telepath to convince people that she was dead than it would be for them to actually kill her.

A real shame if they killed her off for good. She is such a great character although I have my reservations for January Jones.

i've read some fan reviews of the movie, and I'm glad there are actually tons of people who are just as pissed off as me with what happened to Emma.

if only we could let Bryan Singer or someone from Fox know the mistake they've made, then maybe we can have her back in X-Men:Apocalypse.

I avoided this thread when I noticed it was getting traffic and I hadn't seen the film yet.

I kind of hoped to see January Jones' Emma again. I can't complain because DOFP is great, but...you know. Oh well, she's too old for me anyway and I'm kind of busy.

Sorry, but January Jones--despite the fact that she's a brilliant actress on Mad Men--was TARE REE BULL as Emma Frost. Like...the worst of the worst. I don't agree that the character should've been killed off (she could've been effective in this upcoming 1980's take on Apocalypse) but January was so dull and lifeless in the role. Hated it.

She is perfect on Mad Men and terrible in everything else I have seen her in over the last five years. There were points where I thought she was reading off cue cards. I don't know how she got or kept the role, especially after they did some rehearsals or looked at the dailies. Bacon was campy, but he knew just how to play it and embarrassed her when they were together.

i think being cold & dettached in Mad Men is the reason why January Jones got the gig to be Emma Frost. I think that was what the casting people from First Class wanted. like that's how they envisioned Emma Frost that time.

and it's only because of the fan reaction that they realized they did a terrible thing and so instead of letting January redeem herself, they just decided to get rid of the character.

i'm okay with them doing a recast, prolly get Alice Eve on board again.

I do think it's dumb that they off screen killed off Frost. They shouldn't kill off popular characters as easily as they do in this series. And yes Jones was unbelievably awful so a recast was in order, not a death.

Fan reaction? I don't know how they did not see if from the first day rehearsals. She is bad in every, and I mean every scene. That kind of acting would not have been out of place in one of the SYFY monster movies like Sharknado.

well bryan singer/matt vaughn certain thought she did okay, enough to actually use her scenes and put it in the movie.

if they thought she was a horrible actress they would've asked her to do the scenes over and over and gave her better directions until they got what they want.

She was OK = didn't annoy me at all. Also her scenes never demanded true "acting" displays, so it's also the writing.

Angel Salvadore on the other hand...may her death have been gruesome and long. Hated every second of her. For me, Kravitz was the only truly horrible one. Good riddance. Forever.

Yes. She a great villainess and the movies need more of them. I hope there is some way to bring her back. Recast, of course. Eve Alice, Margot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street) or Rosemund Pike.

I don't know why people are so against recasts. If the person is not working out, it does not mean you hate them or that they cannot shine in another role, but why destroy a potentially great or iconic role or a movie because of fear of recasting?
