Today, X-Men fans are getting their first look at the mutant saga’s next chapter with the first trailer for “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
The highly anticipated movie, which opens on May 23, 2014, combines the cast of the original “X-Men” series (“X-Men,” “X2” and “X-Men: The Last Stand“) and the cast of 2011 prequel “X-Men: First Class.”
The storyline involves Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), who, at the behest of a mysteriously resurrected Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and former foe Magneto (Ian McKellan), travels back in time to assist a young Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) in preventing a war that decimates the future.
Director Bryan Singer, who helmed the first two superhero installments in 2000 and 2003, returns to the franchise, as well as actors Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus). “First Class” stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast) and Lucas Till (Havok) will also return.
