With ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘ opening tomorrow, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ is following the superhero movie formula by releasing a ton of clips. The latest features Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine looking for Professor X and instead bumping into Nicholas Hoult‘s Beast.
What’s great about this clip is it suggests the film will have some levity, as the previous scenes have mostly focused on the action in context of some very serious scenes, and while this does feature some mutant battling, it’s also funny. Then again when the mutants are fighting for there very survival against the Sentinels, it’s harder to crack jokes.
For the record, there are now four minutes of the movie online, with a special preview scene attached to ‘Spider-Man,’ which also likely runs around a minute. For those worried about spoilers, the film is currently listed as being 130 minutes long, which means less than four percent of the film is currently viewable (though the number goes up if you include trailer footage). Here’s the film’s synopsis:
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’. ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ takes its name from the comic book by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. Though official plot details are currently under wraps, the original story shows the last remaining members of the X-Men living in an apocalyptic future where giant robots called Sentinels stalk the Earth and mutants are hunted down.The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
