Exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Image From X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Image From X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Say hello to Bryan Singer's '70s mutants

Were you worried that X-Men: Days Of Future Past would be less groovy than its predecessor, X-Men: First Class, after swapping the swingin' '60s for the '70s? Worry no more! This exclusive new behind-the-scenes image from the new issue of Empire (out Tuesday, December 31) proves that the principal cast, and director Bryan Singer, are styling as hard as ever in their Starsky & Hutch-style threads.

This film, as you must know by now, sees a story split between a post-apocalyptic future where mutants are hunted and killed by robots called Sentinels, and a 1970s past where they might just be able to turn the tide. Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) team up to send Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) consciousness back in time to his younger self to unite their younger selves (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, respectively) and change the course of history. Easy!

The film also stars, oh, everyone who's anyone. Or to be specific, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Evan Peters, Ellen Page, Lucas Till and Daniel Cudmore. X-Men: Days Of Future Past hits UK cinemas on May 22, 2014, with a sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse following in 2016. 

For more on Days Of Future Past, read our trailer breakdown here. If you'd prefer a look ahead to Apocalypse, read that here.

The new February issue of Empire hits shelves tomorrow, and that has much more from our set visit to Days Of Future Past, so pick it up at your local newsagents or in digital form.

RE: Nicholas Hoult is not blue...
L: Emilysj92 I'm intrigued- why is he not hairy and blue like at the end of the first film? Yet in some of the photos from the shoot he is- I'm not familiar with the Beast character, is it something he can turn on and off? he movie involves time traveling. Maybe some of it took place before he became Beast? More
