X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailer Crosses Generations

The characters from the original X-Men trilogy must save their future by changing their past selves.

Marvel released the official trailer for upcoming movie X-Men: Days of Future Past today. There are many familiar faces in the film, and both the original X-Men cast and their younger selves in X-Men: First Class feature in the film. Wolverine must travel to the past to stop a war before it begins.

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen reprise their roles as Professor X and Magneto, and James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender also reprise their roles as the younger selves of the two characters. Many other actors are back, such as Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Halle Berry as Storm, Anna Paquin as Rogue, Shawn Ashmore as Iceman, Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde, and of course Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Some of the older characters should not be around for Days of Future Past because of events in X-Men: The Last Stand, but director Bryan Singer has said there will be an explanation for their return. In addition, Peter Dinklage, known for his role as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, stars as the antagonist, Bolivar Trask, a character who considers the rise of mutants as a threat to humanity.

Singer has worked on two previous films in the series, X-Men and X2. Days of Future Past is not only a sequel to X-Men The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class but is also a follow-up to this year’s The Wolverine. The upcoming movie will be the first to mix both original and younger selves in one movie.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled for release on May 23, 2014.
