You’ve seen the most recent (and supposedly final) trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. To complement it, stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender took part in a 20-minute question and answer session in which they fielded inquiries about the new movie. But this isn’t the place where Fox’s well-oiled marketing machine suddenly breaks down and all manner of secrets are revealed. No, this is just the place where you get a sense of how much fun it might be to hang out with these three actors for a little while. And that is pretty good, given their personalities and easy chemistry together. Read More »

After some intense promos and clips (and a couple of truly WTF Carl’s Jr. commercials), Fox has released one final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer.
As usual, the video has mutant heroes battling mean humans, terrifying Sentinels, and their own inner angst across two different timelines. What’s different is that this particular trailer plays up Wolverine’s role in the whole thing. Though he doesn’t tend to be much of a team player, desperate times call for desperate measures, so this one has him running around the ’70s trying to get the gang together.
Watch the video, which includes tons of new footage, after the jump. Read More »
The MTV Movie Awards came complete with a barrage of clips and ads, and one of the most significant was a minute-long clip from Bryan Singer‘s new X-Men film. Here, the Sentinels attack early in the X-Men: Days of Future Past storyline — or early in the movie at least, despite these events taking place in one possible future for the mutant race.
Here you’ll see a variety of mutants, from Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) and Colossus (Daniel Cudmore) to Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Blink (Fan Bingbing), Bishop (Omar Sy), Sunspot (Adan Canto), and Warpath (Booboo Stewart). All work together as the mutant-hunting Sentinel robots attack. You’ll see more of how the Sentinels operate, and get a sense of how the mutants are employing teamwork to defend themselves — not that it will likely do them any good, given how effective the Sentinels are.

If nothing else, the marketing department at Fox is doing a great job with the “viral” ad campaign for X-Men: Days of Future Past. A new Days of Future Past video and slideshow website runs through 25 big moments in modern human history, showing along the way how mutants, and those who are concerned with them, have played into the evolving course of our times. Bolivar Trask works with Richard Nixon, and eventually has a hand in Guantanamo. Familiar mutants are present at important points in time, and one fan-favorite character has a significantly revised origin.

X-Men: Days of Future Past doesn’t open for another few weeks, and its sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, isn’t coming for another two years. Nevertheless, inquiring minds already want to know what Bryan Singer has planned for us in 2016, and the director is more than happy to deliver.
In a new interview, Singer and producer/writer Simon Kinberg revealed some new details about the film, including its relationship to the source material, its connection to X-Men: Days of Future Past, and which other mutants we might see. (Hint: Mystique won’t be the only blue one around these parts anymore). Hit the jump for more info.

Up until now, the X-Men: Days of Future Past version of Quicksilver has been relegated to still images. Even without knowing how he’d look in motion, fans have had plenty to say about the punk metallic look of the character. Now, his movements have been revealed thanks to commercial for fast food burger chain Carl’s Jr. It shows Quicksilver in action, which seems like very odd place to reveal the movement of a character whose design has generated such polarized responses. Check out the Quicksilver Carls Jr commercial below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Thursday, two new X-Men Days of Future Past posters were revealed. They were not very good. Today, nine more have hit the web. Nine. Unlike those two, these don’t appear to be theatrical. Instead these look like the $8 poster you’d purchase at Wal-Mart or Spencer’s Gifts and, surprise surprise, that actually makes them kind of cool. (Some of them at least.) Others are the same simple composition that plagued these two. Still, you’ll get some new glimpses at Ian Mckellen, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence and others. Check out nine new X-Men Days of Future Past posters below.
