Comic Book Movie Buzz: X-Men Days of Future Past gets an epic final trailer

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.

MY THOUGHTS (some SPOILERS):

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.

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?

GEEK: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST MAKES THE COVER!

We get a first look at the new Summer Movie Preview cover of Entertainment Weekly featuring the iconic characters from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This epic is set for only one film, but will be packed with many mutants and a rich storyline of time-travel, assassination, redemption, salvation, and betrayal. Just who does any of these things is the real question. I have to admit that I miss Rebecca Romijn a bit, but J.Law will do.
