Opening this weekend is director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. As most of you know, Days of Future Past 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 the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants. The film also takes place in the future, so we’re going to see the original X-Men cast and what will happen if Wolverine fails. I caught a screening last week and am very happy to report the film is great. It’s loaded with awesome character moments and tons of mutant action. You’re all going to love it.

At the New York City press day, I landed a great video interview with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy. They talked about the ambition of the sequel, signing a multi-picture deal to play the characters, future movies, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel, and so much more. Hit the jump to watch the interview.
