20th Century Fox released a new clip from X-Men: Days of Future Past during tonight’s MTV Movie Awards. The follow-up finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants. This clip gives us a look at the advanced sentinels, but what’s really striking is how director Bryan Singer is using the mutant powers to create some exciting new set pieces. It’s particularly cool to see Blink’s portal ability and watch Iceman finally ride an ice trail.
Hit the jump to check out the X-Men: Days of Future Past clip. The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Evan Peters, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Lucas Till, Omar Sy, Adan Canto, Booboo Stewart, Daniel Cudmore, and Bingbing Fan. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D on May 23rd.
