@maxxx676: Is Days of Future Past even going to be a real sequel to First Class? I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to it.
What did you all think of January Jones as Emma Frost
@maxxx676: They already did ask JJ if she was going to play in Days of Future Past and she said no. She could very well be casted once again as Emma in another movie involving the First Class crew when it deals with them. So the last scene in FS wasn't wasted just because Emma isn't in the next movie, she could be in the one after for all we know.
She was horrific. It doesn't matter if her lines were horrid, any actor worth their salt can make movement speak volumes. Emma belittles just by her facial expression and January translated that into stony frozen ice/blank stare.
So -- it was her. Had she bothered to look into the character, she would have realized the importance of getting across Emma's cutting personality. Even if the director wanted to show her as Shaw's arm candy and martini server, Emma still should have had some haughtiness to her. All we got was an ice princess.
Completely dull. She had all the gravitas of an oatmeal cookie. Personally, I don't think she even looked good in the lingerie getup.
Part of the blame falls to the script I suppose, but Jones just didn't have the 'Emma look' either. Nor the Emma voice. Emma Frost should be a commanding, self-assured and beautiful in the sort of upper-class bourgeoisie way type of lady. Not stiff, and emotionless with deadpan lines.
All that being said, Frost had a relatively minor role in the entire movie, so I can live with it.
^lmao! The lingerie looked cheap too and in the outfit with the miniskirt, boots and babushka hat she looked like a freezing cold majorette. I like Emma Frost thick, the way the Dodsons draw her. January Jones is too straight up and down to pull off curvy, even with a ridiculously padded push-up bra. Part of the problem was the 1960's attire, but it looked good on Magneto. I still want the boots he was wearing when he was sitting outside on the steps.
