Written By CelynComments Off on “Trance” Blu-Ray Screen Captures
I have just added over 1,000 HD/Blu-Ray quality screen captures of James from his amazing 2013 film Trance, directed by Danny Boyle. This has to be one of my favourite films of 2013, and definitely in my personal Top 3 of James’ performances. Please note that there are spoilers if you haven’t seen the film yet. Enjoy!
Written By CelynComments Off on “Filth” to premiere in Scotland on September 27th
Filth, the film based on the novel of the same name by Edinburgh author Irvine Welsh is set to be released in Scotland ahead of the rest of the UK and Ireland.
Directed by Jon S. Baird, the film, starring James McAvoy as corrupt Edinburgh cop Bruce Robertson, will open in Scotland on September 27th this year, a week prior to its general release, and features a star-studded cast including Jamie Bell as fellow policeman Ray Lennox and Oscar-winning actor Jim Broadbent as Robertson’s psychiatrist Dr Verme Rossi.
Facing a promotion, Detective Sergeant Robertson stops at nothing to ensure his success, including turning his colleagues against each other, sleeping with their wives and ignoring everyone but the tapeworm that grows inside him.
The explosive ‘red-banded’ trailer for the film offers a brief glimpse of the dark and grimy world inhabited by Robertson, including (but not limited to) snorting cocaine and downing vodka in his car. It’s a far cry from the clean-cut Robbie Turner, portrayed by McAvoy in Atonement opposite Keira Knightley.
Despite the film’s ties with Edinburgh – part of it was filmed in the capital – there is no place for a premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Benefiting from Welsh’s input in both the screenplay and the production, Filth is the fourth work by the Leith-born novellist to be made into a film, following Trainspotting, the Acid House and Ecstasy.
Danny Boyle’s version of Porno – the long-awaited sequel to Trainspotting – is rumoured for release in 2016.

Earlier on this evening, James attended the Laurence Olivier Awards with wife Anne-Marie Duff, where he was nominated for Best Actor for his role in Macbeth. Unfortunately he did not win, but congratulations to Luke Treadaway for his role in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Pictures from the red carpet have been added to the gallery (thanks to Luciana for the HQs)– enjoy!

Today is James McAvoy’s 34th birthday, and we here at James McAvoy Fan wish him the most wonderful day with his friends and family. After getting to see James live on stage last night for an incredible performance of Macbeth, I am so excited to follow James’ career over the next year, especially with projects like Filth, Eleanor Rigby and X:Men on the horizon. Feel free to leave your birthday comments!

However, I am now in the process of bringing us bang up to date, and to start I’ve added pictures of James from his last 5 public appearances. Enjoy!
