Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman and more in new images from X-Men: Days of Future Past
The first trailer for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is due to hit the interweb on Tuesday, but to get us ready for it, Fox has released a handful of new images from the ambitious sequel. We get great looks at a wide variety of cast members, including everyone’s favorite adamantium mutant, Wolverine. There’s just something about seeing Hugh Jackman in his Wolverine haircut that gets me excited for this film.
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 of the comics (via Wikipedia) is: The storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men’s failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men. She succeeds in her mission and returns to the future, but despite her success, the future timeline still exists as an alternative timeline rather than as the actual future.
