The Sentinels Attack In A New X-Men: Days Of Future Past Clip
And explore the movie's timeline...

If you read our report on 20th Century Fox’s presentation from this year’s CinemaCon a few weeks ago, you may have seen us mention the clip the studio showed from X-Men: Days Of Future Past. A cut-down version of the clip is now online via MTV. 

Taken from the film’s opening, the scene is set in the dark alternate future where mutants have been hunted into near extinction by the lethal Sentinel robots unleashed by Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). But in their determination to wipe out mutant kind, the robotic warriors have also laid waste to many human cities as their war spread across the globe. We catch up with some of the remaining mutants as they come under attack from the latest wave of the living machines. It does not go well for our heroes…

With the release date now a little over a month away, 20th Century Fox is acutely aware that there is a lot of narrative ground to cover in a story that spans the years between 1973 and the dark future world we glimpse above. To help fill in some of the events in between and show how the situation between mutants and mankind soured so badly, there is a handy timeline guide chronicling 25 specific moments.

Those include the end of X-Men: First Class in 1962, where Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and the rest ended up part of the Cuban Missile Crisis. From there, we leap into events that span a decade between that and 1973, where we pick up the story of the younger Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). There’s also mention of the plotline, hinted at in a previous viral site, that Magneto was implicated in the assassination of John F. Kennedy and imprisoned.

The rest we shall leave you to see for yourself, but it’s a fun little blend of real-life events and X-Men related news, even including the 'real' reason for the Mad Cow disease outbreak. From the looks of it, the timeline even tries to squeeze in events from other X-movies.

With Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page, Daniel Cudmore, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore and others back, including most of the First Class cast, Days Of Future Past is out on May 22.
