New Trailer and Poster for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, and James McAvoy

     March 24, 2014


20th Century Fox has released a new trailer and poster for director Bryan Singer’s highly anticipated superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.  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 trailer is terrific.  It shows the darker tone that Signer mentioned, and the character drama looks as strong as the action scenes.  As for this new poster, it’s just awful.  If you’re going t o pay millions of dollars for a marketing campaign, perhaps it’s best to find a person who understands composition rather than making it look like Professor X farted an explosion.

Hit the jump to check out the new trailer and poster, and if you missed any of Steve’s extensive set visit coverage, click here.  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, Daniel Cudmore, and Bingbing FanX-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D on May 23rd.

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.

    Incredible trailer! Fassbender looks like he’s going to steal the movie!!

    • Neven

      He already stole the first one!

    • 80sRobot

      Wish he could steal a better spot on the poster.

    • Ur name here

      The sentinel at the end fires just like the destroyer from Thor

  • Isak

    Couldn’t help but notice that at the end of the trailer Anna Paquin is still listed as starring.

    • Stan

      I noticed that also. So I think she’s in this but they are keeping very quiet about her role and involvement. This trailer was so amazing. I am so pumped now.


        Ha. Bryan Singer is really trying hard to not tick off Anna Paquin. She will be a glorified cameo. The real question is why is she the Rogue we know from the comics in the future? She still seems mousy

      • Old Soldier

        Who cares, as long as she does not fly.

  • Grayden

    When will the studios realize in-house posters are lame. Commission an artist to do a print a la Mondo.

    • MITIOR

      Mondo posters are not very commercial for regular movie goers. They are cool (some) but they’re aimed towards the fanbase.

      • Grayden

        Ok, first let me preface by advising you to read what I posted again. Neither did I say they should have Mondo make the posters, nor anything about the commercial viability of the prints; Simply that they should commission an artist to do a poster a la (read: like, in the vein of, similar to) Mondo. The studio could use that artwork in promotional materials and adverts. If they wanted to, they could do giclee prints or do a mass print off for retailers.

        Point being, the work being done by artists of Mondo fame and beyond is exceedingly better work than anything done in-house by photoshoppers.

      • MITIOR

        In the words of an old master “Anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering”.

    • The_Smirking_Revenge

      I actually like that poster. Reminds me of the old Star Wars posters. I’d hang it on my wall.

  • cruzzercruz

    This type of poster made more sense for Thor: The Dark World because of its cosmic scope.

  • Bob

    There 2 for 2 in trailers in my book. Both trailers epic in their own ways. The first setting the stakes and the epic tone. This one delivering on them.

    • George

      That first trailer was terrible. The editing was totally jarring, and it felt like they just slapped together two different trailers into one. This trailer was a helluva lot better, and actually had a cohesive soundtrack to it as well.

  • The Destroyer

    This looks excellent. This is my most anticipated movie of the summer.

  • Generic

    Awesome trailer.. Fart-tastic poster, seriously what the hell were they thinking.


    100% On The Trailer!!! 50% On The Poster!!! This Movie Is Going To Surpass Its Budget Quick!!!

  • vpuik

    Ok, that looked pretty good. Now, please let there be some real action in this. I know Singer is a drama director, but for the love of everything holy it’s a superhero movie!

    • milo

      Based on the opening scene of X2 with Nightcrawler in the white house, I’d say the guy is capable of directing action.

    In a crowded library, trying not to laugh my ass off at the poster.

  • Jan

    Wolverine looks like he wants to chop up the entire X-Men cast.

    • AERW


      • Old Soldier


  • jk

    Am I the only one disappointed that the Sentinels don’t look more like they do in the comic book?

    • JBug

      I love the look of the future Sentinels. They appear a lot more threatening. I never understand how a bunch of giant robots were so dominant over the X-Men.

      • Andrew Sanders

        Not really sure about the future sentinels myself-look like a mash up of T2′s T-1000 & Venom. Quicksilver still looks lame,but apart from that,reckon this is looking pretty sweet.
        Isn’t the Scarlet Witch also set to make an appearance,alongside her bruv,Quicksilver?

      • Mekt_Ranzz

        Quicksilver looks like a child of the 70s, which is appropriate for this film. And just so you know, Evan Peters is playing him, so unless you don’t watch American Horror Story, you should know that the character is in good hands.

  • randommale7

    For a movie all about Xavier and Magneto’s relationship the poster is sadly all about Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence…why can’t mainstream audiences know McAvoy and Fassbender?

    • bidi

      i was thinking the same thing. at least the trailer was heavy on those two and surprisingly light on Jackman

    • Mike

      Jennifer Lawrence is the biggest movie star in the world, and The Wolverine made more money than First Class.

  • Marlboroliteman

    They should have at least given Professer X a magazine to read while he’s dropping a deuce.

    • HeSaidSheSaidMv

      He just reads people’s minds instead.

      • George

        lol well played sir/maam!

  • JBug

    I guess they are going all out with Iceman. I was really hoping they would, but now that I’ve seen what it’s going to look like, I’m a little apprehensive.

  • Cylcops-they kicked me out

    The poster: Professor X farted and explosion…and…Wolverine us trying to smell it!!!

    • Marvin

      And old Magneto staring at Wolverine’s crotch.

    • TheMattedScreen

      Not to mention Beast bursting from Mystique’s nether region.

  • Wilsonvolleyball

    I wonder if they made the Sentinels look like Iron Man on purpose in that poster…

  • TigerFIST

    Finally iceman doing ice slides!

  • Hey Bub

    epic trailer, looks great. Hopefully the story is not all over the place! And I thought Xavier died in X3? Does that mean Cyclops and Jean are back too?

    The poster, lol, these posters crack me up because the more famous you are the bigger your face is on the poster. Mystique gets a ton of space because of Jennifer Lawrence gain in popularity lately.

    • The Destroyer

      Watch the beginning of X3 when Xavier is talking about ethics, and then watch the post credits scene. That will explain Xavier’s death and resurrection.

  • lobtaylor

    Now that is awesome!

  • kps

    Quicksilver looks so dumb it’s distracting. He’s only in the trailer for a second in the background but yet he’s all I can focus on. Like a bad song you can’t get out of your head. Throughout all the epic set pieces and cool fanboy moments, he’s going to be the one tormenting me.

    • Luciano Jose Marin

      You are Dumb, Douchetard!

    • Mekt_Ranzz

      Yet another would-be critic who doesn’t know who Evan Peters is. Watch American Horror Story and I promise you’ll feel differently about this Quicksilver.

  • Website sucks

    So the entire Collider Staff wrote this article? Copy and pasted the synopsis and typed 3 sentences, one is a fart joke. Collider has really gone to shit. Bash other websites credibility or copy what others already report, have the worst opinions when it comes to whats popular. IMDB needs to stop bringing me to this God awful movie fanboy website. If you think the poster is trash good luck in the future with the media dictating every opinion you have. Trailer looks pretty damn good and the poster is legit. Matt Goldberg, youre terrible at what you do Guy. Sincerely, The Internet

    • TheMattedScreen

      Before you mount your high horse and criticize Goldberg, you might want to edit “your” to “you’re” – just a thought.

      • Website sucks

        Sorry kid. Didnt mean to make you cry. Good luck in the future corrcting grammar on the internet, you got a lot of work to do.

      • TheMattedScreen

        It’s a thankless job but someone’s got to do it…incidentally, there’s an apostrophe in “you’re.”

      • Grayden


        It’s really THAT easy.

      • TheMattedScreen

        Good catch, even I missed that one!

    • Mike

      You sound like a bitter, wannabe writer who couldn’t make it. I only have one question for you. It’s a bit unoriginal, so bear with me: Umad?

  • TheMattedScreen

    One could almost say the Professor farted an Xplosion!

  • JBug

    Sentinels look like the Destroyer from Thor and IMO that’s not a bad thing.

  • cineast4

    That poster is one of the worst things i’ve seen in a while, good god…

  • cineast4

    That poster is one of the worst things i’ve seen in a while, good god…

  • YodaRocks

    Aaaaand the video became private. Anyone has another link?

  • Matt

    Looks like Old Professor X is riding a volcano in the poster


    Fassbender is the man. Its cool to see them bring back the metallic stress balls from the first film. Those will be awesome weapons a la the floating quarter. Why did they show us Storm’s end? We know Berry was wrong for the role but dang. Looks like they will be giving us shocking deaths in the initial future segments. Magneto looks like he is down for the count too.. How will they pull of the vaporized Wolvie shot from the comics? You know they will allude to it

    • 80sRobot

      How do we know that Storm gets killed? The trailer cuts away just before the Sentinel strikes. I say that’s certainly a tease!

    • The Destroyer

      My guess, is that most of the x-men will die at the beginning like in the comic book, and then Wolverine goes back into the past and if he successfully changes it, then their death’s will be erased. So it’s an emotional thing for him, he’s trying to save his friends’ lives.

  • Dmula

    Looks good,I’m pumped

  • Raffy

    Better…. Trailer that is.

  • Radikum

    The poster makes it look like Professor X is farting a ball of fire! LOL

  • TigerFIST

    I’m not confident about this movie but hope I’m proven wrong and it’s AMAZING! Help me understand this though. Quick Silver is the son of Magneto. So how long is the distance in time from the X-Men First class to Days of Future past. Quick Silver looks like he’s in his lower teens and who did Magneto have sex with? Also arent Quick Silver and Scarlett Witch Twins? How old is quicksilver supposed to be?

    • Mekt_Ranzz

      You ask a really great set of questions. I would guess that Magneto simply had relations with women that we don’t know about before X-Men: First Class. But, according to the comics, while in a Nazi concentration camp, he became involved with Magda, the eventual mother of Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch.

  • Sam

    Professor X has a fire fart coming out of his ass…impressive.

  • James Bored

    Poster looks weird. Patrick Stewart farts fire and Wolverine still got his Adamantium claws – what timeline is this? Last time we saw him is his Adamantium steel was sucked up by the Silver Samurai?

  • Phil

    Bye Bye Storm?

  • eternalozzie

    good trailer … bad poster … Nimrod looks pretty cool

  • MJ

    Awesome trailer. This and the new GodZ international trailer are the best trailers so far this year. I am not as enamored with the Captain America Into Darkness trailer and preview footage….whoops, I mean Captain America Winter Solider, of course! ;-)

  • Amanda

    Oh man that poster really does look like he farted an explosion. Looks like someone just discovered photoshop and went a little crazy on it. Good trailer, although it didn’t make me any more excited.
