X2: X-Men United

X2: X-Men United

-One day, a mutant called Nightcrawler infiltrates the White House and tries to kill the President. This now sets up a chain reaction of security on the issue of mutants. Elsewhere, Logan is trying to discover how he came to be. A scientist named William Stryker finds the Cerebro machine, which Professor X uses to locate mutants and the school in which these mutants attend. Also, Mystique is planning to break her leader, Eric Lensherr, aka Magneto, out of his plastic prison. When Stryker and his forces invade the school, the only ones who escape are Logan, Iceman, Pyro and Rogue. They seek refuge at Bobby's house, where Bobby's younger brother calls the cops on them after Wolverine gets violent. Throughout the movie, the mutants must fend off cops and Stryker's forces.

Did You Know?
-The same trainer that Angelina Jolie used in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider also worked with Hugh Jackman during this movie

-On Yuriko(Lady Deathstrike)'s computer are the following files: Guthrie (2), Paige (Husk), Samuel(Cannonball), Harada, Keniucho (Silver Samurai), Kane, Garrison (Weapon X), LeBeau, Remy(Gambit), Lensherr, Eric (Magneto), Maddicks, Artie, Madrox, Jamie (Multiple Man), Xi'an Coy Mahn (Karma), Maximoff (2), (Wanda (Scarlet Witch) and Pietro (Quicksilver), McTaggart, Kevin (Proteus), Moonstar, Daniel (Moonstar), Munroe, Ororo (Storm), McCoy, Hank (Beast), Callasantos, Maria (Feral), Cassidy (2), (Sean (Banshee) and Tom (Black Tom), Cheney, Lila, Creed, Victor (Sabretooth), DaCosta, Roberto Angelo (Skin), Gibney, Kyle (Wild Child)

-Alan Cumming had to undergo 10 hours of makeup to transform into the German speaking mutant Nightcrawler

-The fight between Deathstrike and Wolverine took 3 weeks to film
-Kelly Hu has only one line of dialogue in the entire movie
-The red scar on Cyclops' neck to show he was being controlled was added digitally
-When Hugh Jackman was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, he was talking about some of the stuff that happened during the movie. During the filming of one of the Weapon X scene flashbacks, it was required that Hugh Jackman run in the corridor, in which he was completely naked. When he turned the corner, all the female cast members were there, including James Marsden's mother, who were waiting for him, cheering and waving dollar bills
-The final scene in this movie showing Cyclops, Professor X and Wolverine, it shows Wolverine's hair a little longer. It was because at the same time, Hugh was shooting Van Helsing and his hair was longer. So he had to wear a wig of hair for this movie so it appeared shorter
-Neil Patrick Harris lost out on the role of Nightcrawler to Alan Cumming, who speaks very fluent German
-The song that Pyro turns on in Cyclops' car is "Bye, Bye, Bye" by N*Sync
