Today’s the day people, there is finally a full trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Let’s watch!
This is actually encouraging. The character designs in this don’t look quite as terrible as they did in the magazine covers a couple of months back (although there are a few people in the background that do look awful, Quicksilver I’m looking at you) and the films looks to have a pretty big scope.
I’m left wondering how much of the “future” X-Men (that is, the original trilogy cast) we’re actually going to see in this. Looks like they might contact the past versions of themselves (the First Class cast) and then the younger cast will just run with the plot. There’s a shot of what looks like Storm about be killed but she’ll get out of that probably, right? Or maybe get killed but then the timeline will be reset at the end of the movie? Right?
My thought here is that this movie has a lot of potential but that potential could go either way. That is, it could be amazing or it could be a goddamned mess. Bryan Singer has pulled this size of cast/scope off before (with X2) so here’s hoping.
Also released today is a full poster, you can see it below.
So yeah, mixed feelings over here. What do you guys think?
X-Men: Days of Future Past is out 23rd May.
