Watch: New Trailer For 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' Brings Back The First Class & More

So, what is “X-Men: Days Of Future Past“? The ultimately comic book team up movie or something more steeped in genre? For director Bryan Singer, it’s the latter that piqued his interest when approaching the sequel. 

“….this one actually delves into being a time travel movie. Once I took on that and figured out a methodology for it, I embraced the fact that like ‘Time Machine,’ ‘Back to the Future,’ ‘Terminator,’ ‘Looper,’ I’m now in that world or trench, but it’s a very fun opportunity to see maybe this is a future,” he told Collider. “When you see the X-Men in this future, it’s almost like you start off and it’s sort of a dreary ‘maybe’ future, it’s one you hope didn’t happen, maybe it won’t happen, and that’s kind of what it feels like. So I went full out, that’s why it’s very dark and they’re all militant and I wanted to make sure they all looked like they’d been fighting a war for ten years.”

And that war finds two generations of mutants coming together in ‘Days Of Future Past,’ with a brand new trailer dropping today to see how the gap is bridged. From the new class led by Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, to their older selves played by Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, plus the scores of mutants from past and present, Singer has a lot of balls in the air on this one. Can he pull it off?

Nope. Not going. First they take away Collosus' Russian accent and banded metal so he looks like a T1000 reject, and then I see him trying to punch super sentinel X (or whatever they are going to call the Nimrod/Mastermold/nano-magnetic hivemind mash-up). So I get it, fodder to show how bad the super-badguy is. But you won't get my money.


Awesome trailer!….really looking forward to this film.


Great trailer, lousy poster.

I hate these overly dramatic and emotional superhero movies where there's no sense of fun at all. I'm not watching guys in thights pontificating and crying for two hours.


wow!!! so cant wait….Storm….show us !!


posters still suck…

Well, that's fairly incredible looking. Glad they're not skimping on the future sections despite the massive CGI burden.

Nah, it actually looks cool.
