Next week, 20th Century Fox will release a new trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and so today they’re release a teaser for that trailer (ugh).  For those not familiar with the story, the movie 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.  20th Century Fox seems fond of releasing trailer teasers for the movie, and this one is in a 3×3 grid reminiscent of The Brady Bunch.  Mystique is such a Marcia.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer teaser.  The film also stars Jennifer LawrencePeter DinklageEvan Peters, Ellen PageShawn AshmoreHalle Berry, and Patrick Stewart.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 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.

    so dumb, not just the trailer for a trailer thing but the flipping around instagram sh*t video thing. blah They tried to promote this film the way a film should be promoted in a social network world, but it’s just turning into a mess now. Back to the basics guys, back to the basics.

    A trailer for a trailer. No thanks Fox.

    promotion for this movie has truly been a mess. This might possibly the most ambitious and awesome movie to release this year. just look at the cast god dammit .. but marketing people at fox are just ruining it. I just dont feel excited about it anymore. :(

    • Tom

      At least it isn’t being marketed by the same guys promoting The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

      • Marvin

        but I want more crappy dubstep in my trailers.

      • cruzzercruz

        I’ve been so overexposed to The Amaazin Spider-man 2 that my initial disinterest has turned to flat out hatred.

  • Pk

    Jesus beasts makeup looks cheap!!

  • Tom

    So the rumor that Halle Berry will be cut entirely is wrong.

    • Oliver Queen

      The rumour was the she was cut “almost entirely” which sounds to be legit.

  • Oliver Queen

    This doesn’t include any new footage. WTH??

  • McA

    Yeah, not too crazy about Beast’s new look. I think I prefer the First Class look though it was just ok.

    • eternalozzie

      1st Class made Beast look epic so of course Singer has to crap all over it to change him back to Frasier-Beast.

    X-Men (2000) – $296m worldwide off a production budget of $75m
    X-2 (2003) – $407m worldwide off a production budget of $110m
    X-Men 3 (2006) – $459m worldwide off a production budget of $210m
    Wolverine (2009) – $373m worldwide off a production budget of $150m
    First Class (2011) – $353m worldwide off a production budget of $160m
    The Wolverine (2013) – $414m worldwide off a production budget of $120m

    Interesting that given these grosses (as well as the ever looming spectre of the law of diminishing returns… although adding more X-Men may buck that theory) Fox would give Singer a $250m-odd production budget for a film which is part of a series whose top grossing entry sits 142nd all-time.

    That of course doesn’t speak of the possible merit(s) of this latest film, which may be the best and highest grossing entry yet; no one will know how it performs in those regards until its released.

    Additionally, I know the profitability of a film lay beyond simply its box office returns, but the guy at the helm has been in charge of some other rather expensive productions which failed to deliver the coin (Superman Returns cost $270m and grossed $391m, Jack & the Giant Slayer cost $195m and grossed $197m).

    It’s merely a musing of mine to consider why a studio would make such an outlay on a series and director which has never cracked $500m worldwide and is now in its seventh iteration/variation.

    Based purely on numbers, something I’ll say again has no bearing on the quality of the final product, it seems Fox think everyone wants more of this series. To put it in perspective, even the lowest grossing Spider-Man (The Amazing Spider-Man) did $752m worldwide…

      Cool story bro.

      • Seanpb

        Just think it interesting to consider what lead to such an investment on a series and director that has never been *that* big of a draw, is all.

        Your numbers show a return of over 1.5 billion dollars. If you subtract maybe a few hundred million across the board for marketing all the films and then add some more back on for merchandising you have every reason to continue pumping out these movies.

      • Seanpb

        Once you had marketing on top of the production budget, as well as contemplate the studios receive about a third of the total gross that number is far less impressive.

    They hype trailers now because they give away the entire movie in them.

  • Dede

    Enough of this BS. We can wait for the actual trailer. Fox is od’ing.

    My comment is for any movie that puts out trailers for trailers. You can easily pick a few movies that don’t give away every detail and action sequence but for the most part I won’t bother paying to see a movie that is shown to me in a couple three minute trailers months before release.
