Epic First Trailer for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men Days of Future Past (2014) Movie Title Banner

Hey hey hey, the gang’s all here. And just in time, too, because it looks like it’s going to take the combined might of the “X-Men” and the “First Class” versions of everyone’s favorite cinematic mutants to take down the guy from “Game of Thrones” and his totally rad ’70s porn ‘stache. Though we really don’t see what kind of menace Peter Dinklage’s character will be in this first trailer, I get the feeling he’s very, very menacing behind the scenes.

Check out the first trailer for Bryan Singer’s very epic looking “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. I don’t know if it’s the somber music, but the James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart scenes gave me goosebumps.

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past — to save our future.

Starring Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Peter Dinklage, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and many, many more.

Fighting for the future next year, May 23, 2014.

    That was truly well done! I like how it’s about the story and the characters and not the action!

  • Juggernaut

    I have to say that i am extremely underwhelmed by that trailer. Hopefully the second trailer will turn me around.

    • Lexavi80

      Agree, but this is just the teaser. No special effects of any kind. No Sentinels.

      Is understandable that don’t blow minds just yet.

      I liked it for what it is. I have hope.

      • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

        I’d rather NOT see the sentinels and stuff in a trailer. give me something to look forward to. Blow my expectations away. I actually dislike the way a lot of trailers are cut now, as they give away many of the best scenes in the film, or sometimes show scenes that don’t even happen.

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      Why cause there wasn’t a bunch of spoilerific explosions and action? I actually liked that it was more story sriven rather than action driven. Plus between this and Singer saying how much time we will spend in each time period and how the time travel works makes me kinda excited.

        I’m all about character study and story driven plot. My main gripes with it are that Wolverine is yet again the central character and there was no mention of the Sentinel plot point.. I understand that this is only the first trailer and that the VFX with all of the components, Sentinels included I’m sure, were not ready in time to be added. I also understand that Wolverine is by far the most recognizable character in the series. However, First Class only had him as a cameo and that was by far my favorite X film to date. I just hope that the movie doesn’t dissapoint. Vaughn breathed a new life into the franchise and it would be a shame if that potential was not reached with this sequel.

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

          What’s there about the sentinel plot that can’t be gleaned from the viral stuff and interviews. Like I said if they show it all in trailers what’s the point of seeing the flick. Wolverine is the connective tissue between First Class and the first trilogy. Hence his major involvement, but it looks like we still get a focus on Young Xavier and Young Magneto as well as their older counter parts. I am just keeping my fingers crossed.

  • Cyclops

    Looks awesome, it should be the best xmen yet

  • edge007

    I like the bit about hope, but if this one ends with a neck snap like the last superhero movie supposedly about hope I’m out.

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      Get over that. Supes killed Zod in the comics, and just like there his hand was forced. If anything would you rather have let him slaughter all those people in front of him, and then have him hope that people would forgive him for not stopping him? When MoS comes out on Blu-Ray I have to do an editorial cause the hate for that film was kinda ridiculous. But that’s for another time.

      • edge007

        Nope. Not gonna. There were other ways to write around the neck snap. And quite frankly, in a world of heroes with feet of clay, someone who doesn’t have to resort to the same kind of methods as everyone else would’ve been a breath of fresh air. Heroes who kill aren’t unique anymore – it’s become the norm. While I understand the need to relate to these heroes, what this really seems to mean is we want them brought down to our level because actually trying to change is hard. No one wants to be lifted up anymore.

        And quite frankly, I find that sad. Honestly, I never even knew what an issue this was for me un until this movie. While I’ve never been a particularly spiritual person, what Jesus is to some people Superman is to me. And keep in mind, Superman isn’t even my favorite comic book character. That award goes to the Miller/Bendis/Brubaker iteration of Daredevil.

        • Aegon the Conqueror

          Let me guess, you loved the stupid way Supes killed Zod in Superman II?

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            Thank you. I was trying to save that one for the editorial as well. I have so much to say about the film. But again let’s put aside the whole Snyder/Modern hero aspect for a second and go back to the source material. In the comics Superman had already adopted his “no kill” rule when he was confronted with Zod and his people. And he still found himself in a situation that forced him to kill, not only Zod but his subordinates. There were three, and it has haunted Superman forever since. And there wasn’t as much uproar. The fact that it’s been decades of the big blue boyscout has given Superman that Jesus complex in pop culture. Here’s a question does a police officer shooting an armed criminal holding someone hostage bring him down to the level of the criminal? Does a soldier stopping a suicide bomber with a head shot bring him down to the same level as the bomber? Was it a shocking scene? Yes but I am with Snyder and Goyer on this, the death of Zod, and the extinction of his race (Minus those in the phantom Zone) and the destruction of Metropolis will completely change Supeman and put him on the path to the character most know.

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            I also really liked what Max Landis had to say about the situation. I’m paraphrasing but it went something like this. Superman is like an adult in a world full of children. He has a higher intellect and greater power. So being the good guy he is, he’s not going to use his powers to kill these kids.
            But Zod is something different. Zod is not a child, Zod like Superman is an adult and presents a credible threat. And therefore Superman can kill him, because he is Superman’s equal.”
            I want to enroll in a Cynic’s accurate view of Superheroes class 101 from this guy.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            I like most of that (except for the higher intelect, he hasn’t gotten there yet). But the whole thing about him not killing because he doesn’t have to is very good.

          • edge007

            I’m sorry, but I just find that repugnant. It’s not just his powers that make him Superman. In fact, that’s about the least appealing thing I find about him. It’s the fact that he’s always willing to do the right thing. The world needs at least one uncompromised hero without feet of clay, IMHO.

          • edge007

            Superman isn’t a police officer. Huge difference. It’s the same reason I have very little problem with Captain America killing. The guy’s a soldier. Essentially, they’re both human and more fallible (yes, even Captain America).

            Plus, the story you cite has to be one of the worst eras of Superman to date. I far prefer the Alan Moore take on Superman killing in ‘Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?’ The guy knew more than anyone else that Superman, above anyone else, shouldn’t kill, so the moment he did? He retired.

            Like I said, I just find it sad that know one wants to be better. They just want what’s convenient. Or they just want that “Fuck yeah!” moment when the bad guy gets his.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            See now you’re taking it too far. I wasn’t all like fuck yeah! I was like, well he did what he had to do. And you’re absoultely right he’s not a police officer or a soldier, but that being said in a situation where he’s fighting someone as powerful as him, and more viscious than him, it was him or everyone else. And he chose everyone else, and THAT is Superman. And again this isn’t the Superman you’ve grown up reading, this is before he gets there. Superman must now strive to be that ideal he was supposed to be. I am very sorry you feel people have been jaded, but if you ask me a hero can be flawed and still set ideals and be an exapmle to others. We cna pretty much see from here on out life, all life is precious to him. Hell it was to begin with. But backed against that wall he had no other choice. Can you give me another way out from where they wrote it. From that standoff where he has Zod in his arms and he’s trying to fry people? Can you give me another way out? One that doesn’t cause MORE destruction than already occured? More death of civilians and innocents?

          • edge007

            I’ve never stolen a thing in my life. I don’t need to do it to know it’s wrong.

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            No you’re just lying. So i guess that makes you lying thief.

            Off course you’ve stolen before. Besides being kryptonian doesnt mean your infallible. Course the guy is going to make mistakes. Im with Dedpool, when he snapped Zod’s neck, I sat in stunned silence. I understood, without condemning,or condoning.

  • Lexavi80

    Did you guys saw that the first half (or the future portions) of the trailer takes place in something that looks like a temple?

    Maybe we’re actually getting Apocalypse after all?

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      I had a similar thought. but I doubt it.

  • toybats

    Is this the sixth wolverine movie?

  • kwekwe

    too much wolverine… i mean i liked the character but this is just too darn much. cant they come up with someone better. i mean they frackin killed cyclops! and he’s proven to be a great strategist in astonishing… too darn much of wolvies.

    • Aegon the Conqueror

      Well movie version of Cyclops was extremely lame! Everything about him was lame! Even the actor who played him really is a lame person. Case in point, the reason why he died in X 3 was cause he’d rather play Louis Lane’s rebound guy in Superman (cue vomit) Returns.

      • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

        ROFTL!!! Yeah the movie version of Cyke was pretty bad. Worse even than the 90′s cartoon version (JEEEAAAAAN!!!!!) he had zero personality, and nothing to really do. He ended up a pawn in X2 for most of the film, and then dead by X3. I would love a reboot with A cyclops closer to the comics. Or hell just have him come back from death somehow (time travel tends to change things) and be played by a different actor.

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    Wow I really liked this! Liked how it focused more on the story aspect. The opening and closing snippets of music were amazing! Anyone know who it’s from?

    There’s just one glaring problem with this! It says “From Bryan Singer” NOOOOOOO!
