The ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ trailer is here — and it's awesome
Just a few days after the epic trailer of Captain America The Winter Soldier hit the web, comic book fans now have even more reason to rejoice. The trailer for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Day's of Future Past has landed and it's nothing short of phenomenal.
"Though there is a great deal of humor, the overall tone is a bit darker than previous films, particularly because of the stakes," said director Bryan Singer on Twitter recently.
Singer's return to the franchise caused a great deal of excitement, especially since it was him that got the ball rolling for Marvel, with 2000's X-Men, and later X-Men 2, until Brett Ratner got his hands on X-Men The Last Stand, and botched up the franchise which Singer until then, had done so well at establishing. Matthew Vaughn redeemed the series though with X-Men First Class, and with the actors from that film, coming together with the original ensemble star cast, expectations from this mammoth venture are nothing short of sky high.
In the film, Wolverine (Jackman) is sent back in time to undo the mistakes made by the younger mutants, the outcome of which could alter the future for mutantkind forever. The film is based on a 1981 storyline in the comics of the same name.
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class, in an epic battle that must change the past—to save our future.
X-Men Days of Future Past stars Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters, Josh Helman,and Boo Boo Stewart and releases 23 May 2014.
