The shot above is the image released to celebrate the wrap of shooting on Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past, which finished it’s last days over the weekend.
The pic shows the film’s core characters. While we know that the film really brings together the cast of Singer’s original movies with the cast from the First Class prelude, Comic Con footage and other materials that have emerged since really suggest that this is a story about the evolution of Charles Xavier, with fellow First Class teammate Beast along for the ride and Wolverine as a guiding force. And so there’s your core trio.
But Days of Future Past may only be the next chapter in Fox’s evolving strategy to develop more and more films based on the Marvel characters licensed to the studio. Fox also has Fantastic Four on the way, and an X-Force movie in development. With that pic out of the way, the bigger topic is the potential connectivity developing between the X-Men movies and Fantastic Four. Read More »

Maybe it’s because it was confirmed during Comic-Con, but I still haven’t fully wrapped my mind around the fact X-Men: Days of Future Past will feature Sentinels. Though we got a glimpse in X-Men: The Last Stand, everyone’s favorite mutant super team has yet to truly tangle with the huge, evil robots on screen.
Director Bryan Singer will finally change that on May 23, 2014 when X-Men: Days of Future Past is released. The film blends the casts of the original X-Men trilogy with the stars of the prequel X-Men: First Class to tell a time traveling story that will expand and change the X-Men universe. You can read much more about the movie here but, below, check out an official blueprint that’s been released of the Sentinels. Read More »

Earlier this month, we got our very first peek at a Sentinel from X-Men: Days of Future Past thanks to the Trask Industries display at San Diego Comic-Con. Earlier this week, we got a closer look at the Sentine’s body via the Trask Industries website. Today, we can finally feast our eyes on a full-sized Sentinel, courtesy of director Bryan Singer‘s Twitter addiction. Hit the jump to check it out.

Here’s your first official video look at a couple of the big elements from Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Or, to be pedantic, one giant element and one human one. The video below is an “advertisement” for Trask Industries, a high-tech firm focused in part on national security. The head of the company is Bolivar Trask, played by Peter Dinklage, and in addition to the portrait above you’ll see him briefly in the video below.
The most famous product of Trask Industries may be Bolivar’s brainchild, the mutant-hunting Sentinel robots, and you’ll see one or two of them below, too, in their early versions. We saw some basic hints of them at Comic Con, but this is a much better look. Read More »
UPDATE: We’ve added the high resolution, non-watermarked images, as well as the Sentinel viral posters from SDCC.
X-Men: Days of Future Past won’t be out until next summer, but the marketing has already begun. It started at Comic-Con with the reveal of a Sentinel viral campaign, and continued in the Hall H with a big-time panel. Now Fox has revealed two striking teaser posters featuring Professor X, played by Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy, and Magneto, played by Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender. Check them out below.

Earlier this year, director Bryan Singer made headlines when he revealed the 2014 sequel to X-Men First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past, would not only bring back the First Class cast, but most of the cast from the original trilogy too. That created all kinds of questions, even though many fans are familiar with the time travel storyline of the title.
So how do you get fans excited for a film that’s over a year away and still filming? You bring the whole cast to San Diego Comic-Con‘s Hall H and present a brand new trailer that lays out some of the story. That story shows Professor X (Patrick Stewart, once James McAvoy) and Magneto (Ian McKellan, once Michael Fassbender) sending Wolverine (still Hugh Jackman) from some kind of desolate future into the past, to meet up with their younger selves, played by McAvoy and Fassbender.

Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past is still casting, or cast members are still being announced, at least. The comic book saga already boasts a slew of original trilogy actors, a host of prequel series stars, and even a bunch of series newcomers. Now it has cleared some room for rising Aussie actor Josh Helman.
That name may not immediately ring a bell, especially if you’re not from Down Under, but he’s quickly making his presence known in the States. He last starred in Jack Reacher and will soon appear in Mad Max: Fury Road. Hit the jump for more details on his casting.
