Welcome to Nicholas Hoult Fan, your longest running fan source dedicated to British actor Nicholas Hoult. You may know Nicholas from his roles in hit movies such as "About A Boy", "Warm Bodies", "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and his upcoming release "Dark Places". We aim to provide with the most comprehensive content on Nicholas and give you the latest news regarding Nicholas' career. Take a look around and be sure to bookmark us to stay up-to-date on all things concerning Nicholas' career.
“The first one did so well and [Days of Future Past] got received so brilliantly,” Hoult said. “It’s like, ‘Wow, people really want to see the films’ and the best thing is it’s a great crew and cast to work with and he’s a fun character. I have a good time playing him so I’d keep making them.”
Producer and co-writer Simon Kinberg revealed in an interview back in October that we should expect to see more focus on Beast and Mystique (played by Hoult’s ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence) in Apocalypse.
“And the relationship between Beast and Mystique is a really interesting one that we didn’t have a lot of time to explore in Days of Future Past, so we’ll have an opportunity to do more of that in Apocalypse,” he told Collider.
X-Men: Days of Future Past’s box office took in a worldwide total of $746 millions.
Apocalypse, set in the 1980s and directed by Bryan Singer, is expected to hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
The event included the reveal of the Jaguar XE on the roof of The Hangar Lounge. Hoult is the current celeb face of the luxury car brand, playing a geeky evil villain in a series of television commercials directed by Les Misérables director Tom Hooper.
“It’s really cool,” Hoult said. “When they asked me to do the campaign, I looked at the other people who have done it—Sir Ben Kingsley, Mark Strong, Tom Hiddleston—and then Tom Hooper and I like the cars so I was like, ‘Yeah, sounds like a plan.'”
You might recognize him as the young Hank McCoy from “X-Men: Days Of Future Past”, or from his time playing a zombie with heart in “Warm Bodies”, but if you’re unfamiliar with the work of Nicholas Hoult you’re about to get a face-full with his two latest projects – “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Equals”.
During his cowboy hat and tequila soaked time at SXSW, Rick Campanelli also got the chance to speak with Hoult at The Boffin’s Lab Powered by Jaguar and WIRED Insider party and the actor opened up about his experience on set of the highly anticipated “Mad Max” reboot.
“I’m just glad everyone’s going to get to see it,” the actor tells Rick. “We filmed it two and a half years ago, and it’s been in director George Miller’s…it’s been in his mind for many years more than that, so it’s exciting.”
One of the things that got the young actor’s engine revving was the cars. “My car in [the film] is a V8 hot rod,” he explains continuing on about why he “got chills” on set.
He’s maybe too young to take on the role of Bond quite yet, and is yet to be tapped for a role in the ever-expanding Fast and the Furious film series, but enterprising British actor Nicholas Hoult loves the feeling of his hands gripping a steering wheel around a curve.
“I’ve always been a bit of a petrol head,” says Hoult, who’s recently starred in X-Men’s First Class series as Hank McCoy, aka Beast. His laundry list of upcoming projects could be considered evidence enough, with high-speed thriller Autobahn and the remake of Mad Max, a post-apocalyptic epic based in a world that kills for gasoline, releasing later this year.
In just a few moments of conversation it’s clear that Hoult’s affinity for the open road is not just a passing fancy or part-time enchantment having just returned from a long, solo road trip through the English countryside.
Hoult will be in Austin, Texas tonight for the public reveal of Jaguar’s XE S sports sedan at The Boffin’s Lab during SXSW. But first, the London-based thespian sat down with us to talk about the thrill of racing down a virgin stretch of the Autobahn, and what it’s like to have a few hundred horses sitting beneath you when a fan revs their engine at the line.
You’ve just filmed a couple of projects that involve driving in unconventional circumstances. What’s one of the more intense terrains you’ve encountered?
I’ve driven both the Jaguar XF and the F5 in Finland, on a frozen lake actually. They handled that very well I can say with authority. I got to get taken out in the F-Type V8 on the Top Gear test track, which was just insane. That thing flies and it sounds incredible.
Nicholas was a guest on tonight’s episode of “Top Gear”. He was the “Star in a reasonably priced car”. While the interview has not appeared online yet I did come across a video of his lap. The quality is not great but be sure to check it out!
Finally, the first trailer for Nicholas’ new movie “Dark Places” has been released. The trailer is English with French subtitles. The movie will be released in France in April and will have its premiere on March 30 in Paris.
