X-Men: Days of Future Past Viral Trailer.

The first publically released trailer for X-Men: Days Future Past is here, however it is not actually a trailer for the film as it is a viral marketing campaign and commercial for Trask Industries, the fictional company in the X-Men universe that creates the Sentinels, which are used to turn North America into a dystopian world where Mutants are segregated into concentration camps. In the Days of Future Past comic book storyline, which was written in 1980, something happens in that year to that causes the segregation of Mutants and a much older Kitty Pryde from the X-Men is sent back in time to change the past. However, the film is apparently going to take a much different route because the future part of the comic takes place in 2013, and the whole time travel thing is going to fix the continuity errors that First Class caused. Sometime in the future I need to write a review for the comic storyline.
To go along with this trailer, there is a website for Trask Industries, which you can check out here. Basically, Trask wants to eliminate the "Mutant Threat" and thus the X-Men must fight for survival. Also there are some cool posters that have been released, which I have posted below featuring both young and old Magneto and Professor X. After Star Wars Ep. VI and Avengers 2 this is probably my most anticipated upcoming film. What are your thoughts about Days of Future Past? Please comment below. Sometime after the Wolverine, hopefully within the next two weeks, I have an X-Men Retrospective and Preview talking about the previous X-Men films and the upcoming ones, including X-Force.

  1. Thanks for the link and the Magneto pic.

    This movie will hopefully take the franchise back to the series high of the first 2 movies.


    1. No problem, and thanks for the comment.

      Hopefully it will, although I also liked First Class along with the first two X-Men films.


    2. Oh yes, First Class. I forgot about it. It is definitely on par with the first 2 X movies.


  2. I'm really getting excited about this film. I'd be very interested in reading a review of the Days of Future Past comic story line since I've never read it.

  3. Too much talking, not enough actions or powers.

    there is something missing in X-Men Days of Future Past


One rule: No strong profanity. If you want to link to one of your posts, please do; I am always interested in other reviews and such.
