Paired with MacFarlane while talking with reporters at a Million Ways To Die In The West press conference in Los Angeles earlier this month, actress Charlize Theron revealed that she never really has any inclination to film in New Mexico again due to weather conditions that made her fear for her life during the comedy’s shoot.

There are so many nods to fantastic moments in the X-Men universe in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and I mentioned my favorite to Hugh Jackman, which got him talking about the number of Easter Eggs in the film.
Chris Pratt Predicts Guardians Of The Galaxy Will Be Better Than Star Wars And Other Things We Learned On Set
I’ve said it time and time again, but it truly bears repeating: James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy remains one of my most anticipated films for the rest of the year.
