First and foremost the X-Men movie is still filming until the end of October So you still have a chance to spot Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Fassbender.

Among the many wonderful things that make being a Montrealer a fun and authentically Canadian experience is — you guessed it — hockey.
From its speed and tradition to, of course, its fandom, hockey is (in the opinion of most who live in the Great White North, anyway) one of the greatest sports. Montreal Canadiens fans will know this to be especially true.
But just because our hockey season may look a bit different this year, doesn't mean we can't continue to celebrate by making our homes feel like we're at a Habs game IRL.
Every Molson Export FANatic Saturdays will kick off with a Habs-themed trivia hour from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m EST, hosted by Bell Centre's in-game host Michel Kunta, and it's all about putting your Habs knowledge to the test.
First-place winners will score a $250 gift card to Tricoloresports.com, the Montreal Canadiens' official store. Second place will land a $100 gift card and third place gets a $50 gift card.
Advance registration is required so be sure to snag your spot to flex those know-it-all muscles and ultimate bragging rights.
Q&A Presented by Molson Export
Next, get ready to put those thumbs to work because after trivia is a live Twitter Q&A starting at 6:00 p.m. with special contributor Marc Dumont, formerly from The Athletic.
The session will, naturally, focus on all things Habs, acting as a "week-in-review" where fans can weigh in on what's happening with the team now (in 280 characters or less, of course).
Each Saturday one lucky fan will receive a special prize from Molson Export.
To participate, fans need to submit a question to the Q&A via Facebook or Twitter. Whichever fan has their question selected and answered by Marc during the Q&A will be Le Vrai Fan and get a retro Canadiens jersey!
Following the Twitter Q&A is a 30-minute DJ set live on Twitch. Kickstarting the first FANatic Saturday on April 3 is DJ Special K. You can also look forward to the likes of DJ Shash'U (April 10), Pat Boogie (April 24), TIZI (May 1) and Fafa Khan (May 8).
Whatever your musical flavour, get ready to kick that pregame party into high gear because each DJ will be cranking the tunes until the puck drops.
All you have to do is tune into Montreal Canadiens' social channels to catch a glimpse of the featured star cheering on the Habs.
To date, celebs like David Hasselhoff, Bob Saget, Erin Andrews and Bruce Buffer have been featured. It's anybody's guess as to who will check in with fans next, but one thing's for sure: it's always well worth the wait.
Think everything from jerseys and player T-shirts to headwear, socks and pyjamas. New items exclusive to the weekend event will be offered each week (this Saturday, April 3 you can get 25% off selected hoodies and sweaters), so be sure to check back often for official Habs gear you're going to want to make your own.
Wherever you choose to celebrate the Habs every week, tune in to Molson Export FANatic Saturdays from 5:00 p.m. EST for trivia, special programming, cash prizes, celebrity check-ins and more every single Saturday that the Montreal Canadiens play, home or away.
At the end of October, Emile said police informed his partner of a tip they'd received, accusing the owners of violating public-health rules.
Emile said he and his partner had been filming workouts for social media and training clients one-on-one in the gym.
According to Emile, the SPVM officers told them they could resume what they'd described.
On the next visit, said Emile, police suggested the owners cover the gym's windows to block out spies.
Hours later, Emile said police returned with a different story: after checking with higher-ups, gyms had to be completely closed regardless of who was inside them in order to adhere to Quebec's rules.
The SPVM confirmed that police intervened at Centre U Fit but would not comment further.
Quebec's public health loopholes
Audrey Roy Cloutier, a spokesperson for the Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions in Quebec, explained that the official decree says "usual activities where the public is invited" are suspended.
However, it's unclear whether gym owners can continue to use fitness centres for unusual activities without the presence of the public, such as filming online workouts.
We asked Quebec's Ministry of Health and Social Services about this but, as of November 13*, had not received a response.
Roy Cloutier told MTL Blog that if police are faced with a situation that "raises questions" — in other words, could be seen as breaking rules — prosecutors are available to advise them 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
She also said each police report is analyzed by the province's criminal and penal prosecutors who make decisions case-by-case — including on the severity of the penalty or fine.
Gym owners continue to film online workouts for social media
In a press conference on November 3, a reporter asked Health Minister Christian Dubé about gym owners filming themselves for online workouts.
"Gym owners obviously have... some of them have been very vocal about the closures, but some are trying to survive by offering online training sessions from their closed locations," said CTV's Kelly Greig.
"Yet, we're hearing that police consider that illegal, even if the owner is alone in their gym. So, why is that? What is the rule specifically on this?"
Dubé replied that he hadn't heard about it.
"Let us check on that," he said. "We asked people to be innovative, and if there is one way to find a solution... Let's look at it."
Horacio Arruda, public health director, added, "What we don't want is groups to be together. If you're using your own [...] gym and it's not your home, I think there is no reason for that being a problem in the public health perspective."
Both officials promised to look into it. Arruda said he would "make sure that it's not an interpretation of what is written in the ministerial order."
So far, no word.
As Montreal's fitness professionals wait for further instruction, some have continued to host workouts on Instagram and Facebook Live for their clients.
Some have even continued training clients one-on-one at their private gyms.
Are they allowed to be doing this? Can they get in trouble for it? No one seems to have a straight answer.
2020 has been full of unexpected events, to say the least. And Montreal's most recent is, hands down, the McGill fight club activity that allegedly took place on Monday, November 9, which is said to have been organized by first-year students living in the university's residences.
