Jessica Chastain & James Mcavoy: Banged Up in the Big Apple

Posted Friday August 3, 2012 4:45 PM GMT

Putting their bodies to the test for their latest movie, Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy got into character for "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" in New York City, New York on Thursday (August 2).

Sharing a laugh after a very physical scene, "The Help" actress could been seen getting into an argument in the middle of the street with her "Wanted" co-star moments before a NYC taxi slammed into McAvoy sending him skidding across the pavement.

Told in the husbands perspective, the unique Ned Benson film follows the story of a married couple and how their relationship changes after his wife decides to go back to college.

"The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2013 and will be followed up with a separate film that will be narrated with the wife's perspective.
