New X-Men: Days Of Future Past Trailer Online
Tough times ahead – and behind – for the X-Men

24 March 2014  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

A new trailer has hit the internet for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and this gives us our best guide to the plot yet. It also showcases bigger action scenes than any that we've previously seen – we started counting Sentinels but ran out of fingers – and a Patrick Stewart voiceover that recalls the opening of the very first film. Take a look at the trailer below – and have a gander at the latest poster further down the page.

The story this time, of course, sees Hugh Jackman's Wolverine have his consciousness sent back to his younger self, in order to attempt to change a nightmarish future where mutants are an endangered minority hunted by unstoppable robot sentinels and the world is a blasted battleground. The younger Wolverine then somehow has to pull young Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) away from, respectively, self-pity and a pro-mutant crusade, and try to get them to change the course of history. Easy! Oh, except that Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) is at the heart of the whole problem, and changing her plans won't be easy.

Judging by the new poster below, Lawrence's role is front-and-centre (or they're really trying hard to cash in on her massive Hunger Games popularity), Wolverine has an itchy ear and Professor X the Elder has a floating wheelchair with flames coming out the bottom.

The film also features Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Nicholas Hoult, Fan Bingbing, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Evan Peters, Daniel Cudmore, Omar Sy and Shawn Ashmore, and hits cinemas on May 22.

Looks brilliant. I was impressed with Singer's take on Superman in the past and I eagerly anticipate this! It's Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Peter Dinklage and Jennifer Lawrence in the same movie. I am having an overload of awesomeness! More

I am not watching the trailer!
Nope, not even a little bit! I'm am genuinely excited about D.O.F.P and don't want to spoil the joy of seeing the trailer at the cinema. I'm kinda hoping that it will be attached to tonight's showing of Cap'n America, otherwise I might have problems! Incidentally does anyone know when the forum will be up and running again? I have a desire to add some more of my "witty" posts. Also I'm kinda worried I broke it because it was fine till I tried to join in the Dusk till Dawn conversa More

Another Awful Poster
Trailer looks great but I can't believe how horrendous that poster is. How people get paid to create something so bad for a major release is completely beyond me. More

low X-pectations now
anybody remember how excited they felt when they saw the first X-Men trailer? It had attitude, it was fresh, new, and cyberpunk. This just doesn't do anything apart from emo - badly. Consider X-pectations lowered. More

Why does Patrick Stewart look like the guy from that insurance advert that drives the invisible car towards Snoop Dogg? More

What is that poster about about?
That is one the most camp, unintentionally funny posters I have ever seen! It looks like the cover of one of those 80's films that spent all its money on the poster and had nothing left for the film. More

Cant wait for this even if I have a few minor worries (Its more Hips-ilver over avengers Quicksilver here) I'm really interested in where they are going to take the x-verse from here Marvels done a great Job bringing its large cast together but X-men has been juggling lots of characters in a large shared universe for much longer.

At Last (I hope).
Could this finally be a great X men movie? It looks the part but trailers can be deceptive. Let's hope it lives up to the promise. More
