James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman star in the first X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer
After all the stills and set photos, we finally get a peek at X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. And the verdict? Well, check it out for yourself below, but one thing that can be said about it is that they’re really going for “epic”. My hunch from the trailer is that most of this incredible cast is going to be relegated to supporting roles, with most of the screen time coming from James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman. Frankly, there’s just not enough time to fit in decent storylines for everyone. If nothing else, the first trailer should get people talking and speculating about what’s to come. X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will combine both casts from the X-MEN series that will include Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Nicolas Hoult, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Jason Flemyng and Peter Dinklage. Directed by Bryan Singer the film is set to hit theaters on July 18th, 2014.
The official synopsis for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST: 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.
