The comic-book-film craze has taken over Canada! While DC’s Suicide Squad continues to shoot in Toronto, stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Olivia Munn recently touched down in Montreal to begin filming Marvel’s X-Men: Apocalypse, the latest film in the epic X-Men saga.
Jennifer, 24, was seen strolling through Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport this week surrounded by a large entourage and flanked by security officers, as frenzied fans vied for a glimpse of the Hollywood star. The actress looked chic and relaxed in a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans, a white tank top, a black leather biker jacket and Balenciaga studded leather mule sandals that retail for $1,143 (CAN).
The Oscar winner wore her blond hair in loose waves and accessorized with her favourite round sunglasses from The Row.
Her former flame and costar, Nicholas Hoult, arrived the same day, and managed to go slightly more incognito than his famous ex-girlfriend in a grey hooded sweatshirt and a baseball cap. Despite their split in 2014, it’s thought that the pair remain friends; Jennifer has since moved on with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, while Nicholas is rumoured to be dating Glee star Diana Argon.
Jennifer will reprise her role as Mystique for the last time in the upcoming film, while Nicholas will return as scientist Hank McHoy, a.k.a. Beast.
Also spotted in Quebec's largest city? Olivia Munn, who will portray Psylocke in the movie. Sporting a leather jacket and oversized sunglasses, the actress was seen exploring the cobblestoned streets of Old Montreal on one of her days off.
X-Men: Apocalypse has already begun shooting in several locations around Montreal, including the Cote-des-Neiges shopping mall and at John Abbot College on the city's West Island, reportedly near a football field. The fllm is due out in May 2016.
