Boy howdy! Looks like it could be either great or a convoluted mess with the time travel elements. Also, as much as I adore John Murphy’s score from ‘Sunshine’ it’s time to retire this song from future use in trailers (along with Clint Mansell’s score from ‘Requiem for a Dream’).
That said, the trailer works. It’s enough to hook me in but doesn’t reveal all that much about the flick other than the broad strokes.
20th Century Fox has finally released the first trailer for Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” starring Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, and Shawn Ashmore.
The film will be based on the comic book storyline “Days of Future Past,” which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel’s mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” is set to hit theaters on May 23, 2014.
