20th Century Fox has released the first full trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Those who saw the leaked trailer from Comic Con earlier this year will notice that the new trailer is quite similar, but there are plenty of new scenes and this time it’s in HD.
Director Bryan Singer said on Twitter that this X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer is more of a character piece as the VFX still require work. Those expecting big mutants vs. sentinels action scenes will probably have to wait for the next trailer, but this one does a very good job of setting the story up. In short, Wolverine has his mind transferred back in time in order to stop the assassination of a “key figure” – at the hands of Mystique – in order to avoid annihilation at the hands of the Sentinels.
Watch the trailer below:
Nicholas Hoult as Beast, who has a new look. Much improved.
Fan Bingbing as teleporting mutant Blink
Ian McKellen and Shawn Ashmore return as Magneto and Iceman
Halle Berry as Storm conjuring lighting outside a mountain-top temple. Sentinels approaching?
X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Daniel Cudmore, and Omar Sy. Post-production is currently under-way and 20th Century Fox has set a May 2014 release.
