Fox has unveiled the first posters for Bryan Singer’s X-Men Days of Future Past featuring the young and old versions of Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy) and Magneto (Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender). The film “will straddle the 1960s setting established in 2011’s X-Men: First Class and the future of the original trilogy, where mutants are a hunted minority.” Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Peter Dinklage and Ellen Page also star. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
“The storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men’s failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men. She succeeds in her mission and returns to the future, but despite her success, the future timeline still exists as an alternative timeline rather than as the actual future.”
Nothing will ever top these First Class posters:
