‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Trailer (Video)

October 29, 2013

The first ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ trailer has hit the Web! Brian Singer directs an all-star cast — Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and others, both returning cast and newcomers — in the highly anticipated superhero movie.

This glimpse of the upcoming movie, the latest installment of the Marvel comic book franchise, has fueled excitement. It is a sequel-prequel to the previous X-Men movies — ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and ‘X-Men: First Class’ — and as such, it brings back the beloved mutant characters from both movies.

The trailer offers much that its intriguing as it finds Hugh Jackman (picture above) as The Wolverine, along with the mutants as they confront challenges in two different time periods. It serves to bring together a staggering number of characters all in one movie.

It all comes about when Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) send Wolverine back into the past so that he warn their younger selves — portrayed, respectively by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender — of what can happen. The mastermind of this disaster to come is the villain Bolivar Trask, portrayed by Peter Dinklage (‘Game of Thrones’). The stakes couldn’t be higher, as he has created the Sentinels, gigantic robots whom he has programmed to destroy all of the mutants.

Also generating much enthusiasm is the return of the original director Brian Singer, who first rose to fame with ‘The Usual Suspects.’ He directed the 2000 movie ‘X-Men’ as well as ‘X2′ and ‘X-Men First Class.’ Thirteen years after the start of the highly successful series of movies, he is still on board directing a script by Matthew Vaughn and Simon Kinberg.

The movie also costars Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Fan Bingbing, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart and others. It opens in theaters on May 23, 2014.
