With X-Men: Days of Future Past opening next weekend, 20th Century Fox has provided us with five movie clips and nine minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the film. If you’ve ever wanted to see what it’s like on set, you’ll really enjoy the clips of Bryan Singer directing the cast and seeing your favorite actors in between takes. 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.
Hit the jump to watch the X-Men: Days of Future Past clips and behind-the-scenes footage. The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, and Halle Berry.
Here’s the official synopsis for X-Men: Days of Future Past:
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. 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.
