X-Men galore! Here's Buttonhole's third article about X3. If you haven't already, you can take a look at the previous two either by going into our DVD Movies section, or by clicking for the first one here and the second one here (I took them off the main page as they were dragging the load times down a bit too much). We've now got some more tasty pics for you, once again from 20th Century Fox. We've also been informed that the official Australian website for X-Men: The Last Stand is now online.
Here is the link to the Aussie X3 site: www.xmenthelaststand.com.au
Rightio then, time for some more photo fun!
Kelsey Grammer as Dr. Henry McCoy, also known as Beast: Beast is a favourite of mine, from the X-Men comics. In fact, I like him so much that Mugwai gave me a Beast action figure. So, I am most pleased and look forward to seeing him in the new movie.

Dr. McCoy (Beast's real name) is huge, strong, blue, hairy and beast-like (obviously, hence the name) in appearance. But you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, as he also happens to be extremely intelligent.
Kelsey Grammer (from TV's Frasier and "Sideshow Bob" on The Simpsons) may have struck some people as an odd choice to play Beast, but I trully believe it is some excellent casting. They can handle his looks using make-up and special effects, so that shouldn't be an issue. What I dig about it is that Kelsey's distinctive voice fits the character like a glove and we've seen that he can play intellectual types really well.
Aaron Stanford as Pyro: Stanford is reprising his role as Pyro, from the previous film. I suspect Pyro might get a bit more screen time in the third one.

Aaron certainly looks the part and I enjoy seeing the cool stuff Pyro can do with his powers.
Group hug: As for the third shot, you can probably tell some things from it, but I don't want to say too much! Seriously, you're better off if I don't spoil all of the goodies before you've even watched the movie.
|It takes one to know one. |
There you have it.
For all you gamers, I'll have a bit more about the game based on the film, to follow up on the article I already posted here.
Of course, we'll also let you know about any further X-Men III movie info Fox passes on to us.
