As promised, 20th Century Fox just unveiled the official trailer for "X-Men: Days of Future Past," which is a sequel to the original "X-Men" trilogy and the "X-Men: First Class" prequel. Check out the trailer below.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" has Kitty Pryde sending her mind back to her younger self in order to warn the X-Men that Senator Robert Kelly's assassination will result in a future where Sentinels rule the United States and mutants live in internment camps.
The new movie stars Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Lawrence, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart. It's set to hit theaters on May 23rd, 2014.
Talk about laziness. They took out the "Time" score they originally had from "Inception", which in my opinion fit perfectly, and replaced it with the theme from the movie "Sunshine". They used the "Sunshine" score in the "X-Men: Wolverine Origins" movie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCTDVNgNUeY)On top of that, the sound editing in this trailer must have been done by a 9 year old (The part where Wolverine screams sticks out).
This is the same trailer we saw leaked from Comic-Con a few months ago, and the only thing they did was change the music and add a couple new scenes? Why did we have wait this long again?
Sorry, it's the morning here and I'm a grump.

Captain America 2 is still the trailer of the year.

The "Time" music is from The Thin Red Line score by Hans Zimmer, it was never used in Inception.

It does look as if it's posturing a lot of "drama" but without having any real edge, if that makes any sense. It's also looks a bit too stagy and costumey ...if THAT makes any sense. Berry, in particular, doesn't even look like she belongs in the movie.
Still, it's only a trailer. There may be more impressive aspects that's being reserved for the next trailer, or for the film itself.

It's called "Journey to the Line" originally. I think "Time" is used very briefly in Inception.

So they're gonna have 2 different QuickSilvers then?!? Would really b nice when Marvel gets back the rights to X-Men and Spiderman so there will be more cohesion between all of Marvels characters
yer its "Journey to the Line and time is played in the final scene of inception. Also so sick of trailers using the what do you see from Sunshine so annoying especially watching people say I love that from kickass no its from f*cking sunshine matthew vaughn is a retard and cant think to use original music in the most dramatic scene in his movie

The trailer was good.
I hope Singer doesn't destroy the series with this because Matthew Vaughan kind of save the series with X-Men: FC.
also had to agree with what someone else said here...halle berry looks like halle berry instead of storm

Wow...that was surprisingly interesting. I look forward to this but hope that Beast gets more screentime this time around. He added one of the more of the conflicting characters in First Class. I have to admit I am confused. Xavier said that he was a different person in the past but, at the end of First Class, it seems like he is more than willing to fight for people. I guess the 70's really did suck if he gets all depressed. LOL On a more serious note...this is the X-Men I've wanted for years! Back to the atmospheric root of the first two Singer-helmed films. While the costumes are back and forth an improvement, again guy who actually thought the black tactical suits made sense, everyone seems more to have a direction and more drama is edged into this film. So bring it on is all I can say! The only thing is I want to see the Sentinels in action. Get a better idea of how they function.

This doesn't look THAT good. I hope it's just a boring trailer.

The trailer looks decent but it doesn't grab me by the nuts.
Sleuth1989writes: on October 29th, 2013 at 3:19:42 PM
The problem is they have a bunch of new characters that are just there in the trailer but no explanation to them or Singer's interpretation of them. We need another trailer once the film is complete to give an idea of it. Also, it feels like some characters are out of place in where they should be. Like why isn't Magneto the one attempts to assassinate someone and not Mystique? What jump has occurred since the first one where she wishes to kill? As I stated earlier, why is Xavier's school closed for 10 years after being open for only a few? Lot of unanswered questions. This can mean two things. One, Singer didn't cover all the basis of connecting all the films like he said he would. However, I have faith in his ability so I'm going for the hopeful second option that there is a powerful backstory to all the strange development that ties everything together and the major shift in character development. I will say that the 70's is perfect considering the revolutionary nature and desire for change. You also have racism which will help Magneto's cause subtextually.

As long as this film repairs some of the franchise damage done by X-Men 3, whatever the film, it can't help but be a positive direction for the series.
Venom1970writes: on October 29th, 2013 at 9:19:42 PM
Looks great, no complaints here.
minkowskiwrites: on October 29th, 2013 at 9:26:22 PM
^^Agreed. Just actually watched it. Emotionally manipulative, but Singer and Co. didn't invent that technique.
Great use of non-diegetic music, and a quickening pace to the trailer that really belies it's two minute plus run-time.
And I say that as anything other than a fan of either The X-Men or Bryan Singer.
minkowskiwrites: on October 29th, 2013 at 9:30:15 PM
Strong cinematography, too. Not sure if Singer has a constant competent DP, but whatever the case may be, he knows how to frame the show with a rousing eye to balance, the rule of thirds and gripping composition. Every frame of that trailer is well-shot in the most technical sense.

""X-Men: Days of Future Past" has Kitty Pryde sending her mind back to her younger self in order to warn the X-Men that Senator Robert Kelly's assassination will result in a future where Sentinels rule the United States"
WHY. Why do you still type this, Alex, when even the trailer you f*cking post underneath it shows that its clearly professor x sending WOLVEf*ckINGRINE's mind back in time.
Where in the f*ck are you copying and pasting your articles from.

Could be good, although there's a whiff of 'don't worry, everyone you liked from the good movies is back' desperation to it.
Generally, you all cover my gripes so thoroughly I don't feel the need to chime in after the fact wicked redundantly, but I had to finally sign up for this sight just so I can ask, "WHAT IN THE STINK IS UP WITH THE ANOREXIC WARPATH?!?"
Given the retirement home Magneto they keep wheeling out for these X movies, I know Sonny Landham isn't too old for the Warpath job! Ha.
