20th Century Fox released a final trailer last night for the X-Men Days of Future Past movie set for release on May 23, 2014. In it we get a bit more backstory about what Wolverine has been sent back to do and how he goes about doing it.
(Some spoilers ahead)
Ok, I have had my reservations about this movie even though I have been extremely excited for many months at the prospects. This trailer looks fantastic! Again, as with almost every X-Men movie to this date, Wolverine appears to be the central focus of the storyline as he is sent back in time to get Charles Xavier to rectify a wrong. We don’t know what that wrong was yet, but could it be this?
This through-line is somewhat divergent from the end of X-Men First Class, but I assume will find out more once the movie comes out. The action looks apocryphal and Magneto appears to be a greater threat to society then in previous films. There is no minimization of the mutant powers here.
I don’t want to go on too much, but I can’t wait to watch this with a big bag of popcorn and a smuggled-in bottle of water.
How do you feel about this trailer? Do you think too much of the storyline has been exposed?
