Check out a brand spanking new behind-the-scenes featurette for Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which features the director talking about why he came back and what’s in store for fans. Plus, you also get to see some new footage. Basically, lots of cool people flying around coolly and shooting stuff out of their hands and whatnot. And apparently Mystique gets all sad at one point and cries. There’s nothing sadder than a crying Mystique.

I gotta admit, I’m pretty excited for this movie, and it sure looks like Singer has come back full-bore. If this is, indeed, Fox’s jump-start into their own cinematic universe, it sure looks like a whiz-bang way to go about doing it! (Kids still say whiz-bang, right?)

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, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, and Nicholas Hoult.

The future comes home this May 23rd.
