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?
Here is the first look at the new trailer for #DOFP! Unfortunately, the music is awful and predictable and there isn’t anything more than what we got from the Instagram teaser. However, if you love these characters then you will love the latest incarnation of the franchise.
>> Here is a video of Jamie Foxx discussing the Sinister 6 and Channing Tatum talking about his desire to play Gambit, in which he appears to be extremely well versed.
Expect the obligatory shot of him at Marvel headquarters.
>> Google announced that it bought Bump, and why haven’t I used this app yet?!?!
>> A couple of stories about Agents of SHIELD which starts next week. I can only imagine that it will get a post-Super Bowl ratings number.
>> Comics afficianado, Jim Lee discusses his role in comics:
>> Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan seem to win the internet every other week. This week they let Elmo in on the fun.
>> Man vs Food becomes Man vs Fat!
>> From Buzzfeed: 35 Pictures from Breaking Bad that will “blow your mind.”
>> Somehow an athletic director for a university bilked the school out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
>> Very sad story of police abuse.
@EW has new cover art from the upcoming epic Fox feature with mash ups of Magneto and Professor X.
Professor X, Magneto, Colossus, and BISHOP!
