These X-Men Days of Future Past posters highlight one thing: the film is one of the biggest and most varied wild cards of the upcoming summer movie season. Normally, any X-Men movie would be a home run, but director Bryan Singer has really swung for the fences this time, attempting to link the new “First Class” continuity with the original storyline in a massive multiple-timeline action film featuring several dozen mutants, some at two different ages.
It’s a gamble. As we get closer to the May 23 release, you’ll read much more about the film. Russ was on set, I recently saw footage in Singer’s edit bay, and we’ll start to see more footage. But one thing is for certain – the film offers a myriad of options for artistic exploration. All those mutants; all those timelines; all those actors; it’s a cornucopia of comic book inspiration.
Which brings us back to these X-Men Days of Future Past posters. One site has been recruiting talented artists and fans to make posters for the film. Below, you can see a selection of our favorites.
Blurppy.com hosted a “Poster Posse” for X-Men Days of Future Past posters where dozens of artists created dozens of cool interpretations of the film. You can head to that link, and this one, to see them all, but I’ve grabbed a few of my favorites.
Again head to Blurppy to see even more posters. This is only about a third of the coolness on the site and it’s truly a testament to the film’s potential that they were able to get this many people to make this many X-Men Days of Future Past posters.
X-Men: Days of Future Past, directed by Bryan Singer, opens May 23. It stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart.
