Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Across the world, children are born with an extra twist to their chromosomes that allow them to exhibit superhuman abilities: fire a beam of force from their eyes, sprout wings that allow flight, or read men's minds. These 'children of the atom' are often feared and despised by the world, forcing these mutants to resort to desperate actions. However, one group of mutants have banded together to show the world that it need not fear their kind. Apart, they are simply scientific curiosities, freaks and monsters - but together, united by their shared belief, they are more. They are the uncanny X-Men.

- Dougray Scott was cast to play Wolverine. He had to leave the project because of his work on Mission: Impossible II (2000).
Hugh Jackman took cold showers to help him create the character Wolverine's trademark "berserk rage."
There were three types of Wolverine claws - plastic, wood, and steel - and more than 700 individual claw blades were used by Hugh Jackman and his four stunt doubles.
When in full Mystique makeup, about 60 percent of Rebecca Romijn's body was covered in prostheses.
Most of the eye effects were done by using special contact lenses that the actors found very uncomfortable to wear. Rebecca Romijn-Stamos (Mystique) could only wear her lenses for an hour at a time and had only 10% vision. Halle Berry (Storm) was supposed to wear opaque white lenses for the scenes where she uses her weather-control powers. However, she found the lenses unbearable, so her eye effects had to be done entirely through CGI.
