NEW TRAILER: X-Men: Days of Future Past

Bring it.

Stop.

Before you carry on, watch it again, and then look at the poster below (which is also awesome).

XMen DOFP Poster

Days of Future Past (DofP) is the next instalment of the X-Men franchise and, as you can see from the trailer, combines the casts from both the original X-Men films (1, 2, and 3) and those from the rather excellent prequel (of sorts), First Class.

If you stayed past the end credits after watching The Wolverine, you would’ve already known that something else was in the works. Well, this is it. Based onĀ the 1980s comic book of the same name and back in the extremely capable hands of original director Bryan Singer, DofP looks set to be amazing.

I am, somewhat unsurprisingly, extremely up for this. Yes the X-Men film hit rate has been patchy, but I’ve got a good feeling about this one.

Oh, and don’t think that’s it after this one either. X-Men: Apocalypse (yeah, you know) is being lined up after this with the third Wolverine film to drop straight after. So that’s three X-Men universe-based films (that we know about, X-Force has been rumoured for some time too) to look forward to.

What do you think? You in or out?

NEW TRAILER: X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST #DofP

It’s here…

So that looks suitably epic then.

Anyone familiar with the #DOFP storyline will know that in the original it’s Kitty Pride that gets sent back in time. But in this version, it’s looking like our friend Wolverine will be the one making the jump back. If any of you stuck around for the post-credits scene after The Wolverine, you might already have an inkling about this already.

Whatever happens, this crossing of the streams of the two cinematic X-Men timelines is set to be pretty damn awesome and with original (and equally awesome) director, Bryan Singer, at the helm DOFP can’t come quick enough!

This is only the first trailer. Next time around we might get to see a sentinel in action…
