20th Century Fox just unveiled the opening battle sequence from "X-Men: Days of Future Past," showing some of the mutants battling a Sentinel from the future. Check it out 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 James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Lawrence, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart. It's set to hit theaters on May 23rd.
They made them way too animated. We wait all these years for them, since the beginning tease of X-3 and they f*** them up.
most likely this is going to be the first 10 to 15 minutes of the movie and the rest will be focused on the cast members from first class.
I'm excited about this movie but I'm not getting my hopes up for the sentinels and post-apocalypse scenes, most likely going to be a let down. I do love the new cast members though, I wish Matthew Vaughn was still directing it. What he did with X-men first class was amazing. X-men first class wasn't perfect by any means but it is definitely the most clever and entertaining of the franchise.
I wish they would just stay true to the material.

Sentinels: too small.
@DriveMemento: x-men first class was such a pile of excrements. the hellfire club was a hand full of whackos. i mean...the hellfire club! it should be...THE HELLFIRE CLUB!

This plot description is for the comics version, not the movie, right? Or am I remembering wrong?

Agreed. I'm not watching it either. Don't want to ruin it for myself.
First Class was a thousand times better than the the previous three films but in no way is it better than X2 or, in certain elements X1. My biggest problem was the teen cast, a very overused element these days. The only two who were worth the time and effort were McAvoy, Fassbender, and maybe even Bacon who helps mold Magneto's persona. The other problem was no ground for atmosphere. The story was impressive, but X-Men movies need to be dark because they are always on the brink of war or, in the case of this new film, the war is already here.
It so far is a hit and miss. Some of the effects look half-done and I am worried the original cast at this point are a ploy to get people to see the film. I am worried they will simply focus on the First Class cast and jump once or twice to the future. I'm hoping, based on what looks like a scene between young and old Prof X the stories will run parallel and collide in that moment which means a very nice, interwoven complex story. But if they are just there for a couple scenes then really what is the point? So here is hoping for a great film. It be nice to see the X-Men return in full glory. Seasoned acting, dark atmosphere, and a solid thematic story.
Complain about the Sentinels all you want, but its actually the only aspect of the film I've seen so far that I like. So what if it doesn't look like the 90's cartoon. If i wanted the 90's cartoon, i'd watch the damn 90's cartoon. At least here it kind of makes sense, since the sentinels need to be easily adaptable to face all types of mutants.
I do feel that if they really are magnetic plates, they should be suceptible to any of Magneto's powers, but i guess they can negate foreign magnetic fields, or some other comic science bs.

Gone = more boring Fincher drivel starring the worst actor alive, Ben "titchin" Affleck.
f*cker hasn't made a truly good movie since...well since Fight Club, and Gone looks like a really lame episode of CSI Las Vegas, like yet another poorly-paced police procedural.
