20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for director Bryan Singer‘s sequel/prequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.  The story 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.  This trailer is extremely similar to the footage they showed at Comic-Con this summer (right down to the Hans Zimmer score), which sent Hall H into a frenzy.  It does an excellent job of conveying the darker tone of the film as well as teasing the spectacle that will be on display, and I really can’t wait to see more.

Hit the jump to watch the  X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer.  The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ian McKellan, Patrick StewartPeter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, and Halle Berry. It opens in 3D May 23, 2014.

Here’s a 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.

    Well, without giving much away… That certainly looks pretty amazing!!!

    What!!! No Centinels!!

      If you can’t spell them right, you have no reason to complain.

      They are working on the effects, and they don’t want to spoil the experience.
      Teaser looks superb. Great to see them all coming back.

    • astro

      surely you wouldn’t want everything in the movie to be spoilt or teased in a trailer.

  • Michael Horne

    Great trailer – gives nothing away but touches on the general feel of the movie. Nice job.

  • axalon

    Jackman’s dedication to Wolverine is so impressive

  • jackjack

    In the Comic Con teaser the music was Zimmer’s “Time”, here it’s something different…

    • RefnFan270

      It’s part of “Journey to The Line” from his score for The Thin Red Line.

      • Fish

        Actually, it’s a combination of music from “Sunshine” and “Inception”

      • http://mattedscreen.blogspot.com/ TheMattedScreen

        ACTUALLY – opening is Adagio in D Minor from Sunshine – Midpoint action is Journey to the Line from The Thin Red Line – and Time from Inception

      • JBug

        I thought it was Pearl Harbor. Can somebody get to the bottom of this?

      • NICK НΛRT

        all this music was taken from hans zimmer’s score’s for the lion king and cool runnings

      • Craig

        you’ve just earned one internet!

        I thought I heard a little bit of his score for Matchstick Men and Black Rain – but I wasn’t sure

    • Josh

      Adagio in D Minor. John Murphy from the movie “Sunshine” (the first song)

  • Joseph M

    Comments disabled on YouTube. Not exactly a sign of confidence, although it may be about all the people bringing up the music thing. Good trailer, as it doesn’t give you all three acts in one brief sitting. A wee flash of a Sentinel would have sealed the deal, although I guess they’re still in post.

    • Snarky

      Comments were enabled when I checked. And yes, it was primarily people complaining about the music!

      • The Flobbit

        The music was so overpowering. It was like they were telling you, “This is a smart but gritty thriller, with high stakes and lots of emotional dialogue. At this moment you must feel sentimental.” Good trailer, though.

  • OhDawg

    Looks serious.

  • @SuspectedGeek

    All I want in life is to be a time travelling mutant @SuspectedGeed

  • mbmarquis69

    I like the tone. It certainly implies a much larger X-Men movie than we’ve ever seen. Eventually we will get a trailer that confirms this, but for now, this is great.

  • GunzOfNavarone

    I like the way the trailer hasn’t given too much away, it’s story – focused. I have a feeling there is going to be a ton of action and the reveal of the sentinels will come in later trailers, but so far, this looks cool. Some goose-bump moments there.

  • Michael

    This is great but what’s up with Fox using the same music in all their trailers? First Shame, then 12 Years A Slave , now this lol

  • McA

    Looked good… Just don’t want it to become the Wolverine show like the other ones (First Class excluded). Good to see Vaughn and Goldman still involved. Hope they keep some of the First Class score cues as well, particularly that Magneto bass-y twang. It looks great so lets hope this delivers. Fingers and toes crossed.

    Hope further trailers keep it character focused like this one. Hate it when they give the entire movie away.

  • pickaname

    One of the things I loved about X-men first class was that it showed that Xavier and Magneto aren’t some second-tiers and that they can lead a movie on their own shoulders (and lead it pretty damn well). It seems like from this trailer alone, Wolverine’s gonna be the ‘main’ character again (Logan, lead me, guide me, etc). As much as I love Wolverine, can we please give other characters the (very well deserved) spotlight. I mean, he just got his second solo movie. Other than that, I really like the trailer.

    • http://www.thepixelpuse.com/ Aj Meadows

      I’m with ya on that. I’m actually kinda sick of Wolverine. I just wanted to see another movie with Fassbender and McAvoy as the leads.

    • osarumen erhunmwunsee

      i agree. wolverine is so overused in x men movies. i bet you if marvel owned the right to xmen, they wont really focus on wolverine too much, they will make sure each character shines. agree?

      • Sayed

        I bet if Marvel owned the rights to xmen, the movie would have cheesy kid jokes in every scene. Don’t get me wrong, I love Marvel films. But I wish they could be a little more serious and cut down on the cheesy humor. I’m looking at you, Iron Man 3!

      • JBug

        There’s a time and place for everything. It’s nice to have both styles.

      • osarumen erhunmwunsee

        i agree with you. but with all their jokes in movies their movies are still successful. iron man that people complained about made huge money in the box office. superman didn’t made half of iron man 3 movie made despite the fact that man of steel was a serious movie. Thor, captain america, avengers, in fact every marvel movie made more money than man of steel. don’t get me wrong i love man of steel to the core. i love it more than avengers. man of steel fight is freaking awesome.

      I personally want to see more ian mckellen’s magneto. I feel like this is the last time we’re going to see him featured in a movie. Also, I want more Iceman, but only because I want them to develop his abilities.

      • jack

        Besides the next two Hobbit films

    • cloud720

      It didn’t seem like wolverine was in the trailer much. The lead me, guide me was instructions from the older professor x that will help the younger professor x. From that line I got that the movie will be about the change professor x will make.

  • andi

    blah. bland cinematography. bland digital (of course). over sentimental. classic bait and switch.

    • Snarky

      So… you’re saying they’re baiting us with a poor trailer and will switch it for an excellent film? Deal!

  • HE1NZ

    Another bland nolanized trailer

  • eternalozzie

    ugggg … they should have just named this movie “Wolverine and random other people who will have little screen time”.

  • stylus59

    Looks Great, hoping for the best. You never know with this director

      It is. And I’m not too Thrilled with the character design.

    Needs more Colossus. And fewer random mutants.

  • ryan

    there is more than Hans zimmer music. there is Murphy’s sunshine, the second most used score in tralers these days.

  • Archer

    That’s really Adagio in D Minor more than anything else. And that’s not Hans Zimmer.

    • Batzombie

      The second part is Hans Zimmer.

      • Archer

        Ah. It all sounds fairly seamless.

    Was hoping for a shot of a sentinal but oh well it still looks really good. Should be interesting to see which will do better this or the Amazing Spider Man 2 (financially and critically).

    • The Flobbit

      Oh, this will SMOKE Spider-Man to the ground. Guaranteed.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        I think it will come down to marketing and critic reviews. Both franchises have been in fatigue lately as shown by their diminishing box office returns but both are trying to spin a new light on their films. Should be interesting to see it unfold next summer.

      • The Flobbit

        Look at the facts: Spiderman 2, a B-director directing B actors (which is not to say talented): Garfield, Stone, Cooper, DeHaan, Giamatti, and Foxx. Foxx and Stone are the only ones with their grasp on A-list.

        Now we have a hugely successful franchise: X-Men, directed by an immensely talented director (To all you naysayers. Two scenes: Usual Suspects reveal, X2 president attack.) directing some of the biggest A-listers around: Jackman, Fassbender, MacAvoy, Lawrence, Stewart, McKellen, Berry, Page, Dinklage, and Paquin. He will bring in the Asian audience with Fan Bingbing’s Blink.

        Days of Future Past will SUH-MUH-OKE Spider-Man. But hey, maybe Sony will pull a World War Z? I doubt it.

      • JBug

        Was that supposed to be read like a Perry Cox diatribe? You nailed it.

      • The Flobbit

        Who the eff is Perry Cox?

      • Sten

        He’s the coolest guy in “Scrubs”. You should check it out because it was a good comparison: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-b6GIo1g68

      • The Flobbit

        OK, but was that a compliment or an insult?

      • scheebles

        I’m sorry, but MacAvoy and Fassbender are not “A-list” actors from the sound of what you are saying. More people know Giamatti’s name than Fassbender (I’m talking general public). I’m not disagreeing with your post, just that you’re reaching to say James MacAvoy is an A-lister and Paul Giamatti is not. Fassbender, too.

      • The Flobbit

        This year Fassbender has been in two high profile films: The Counsellor and Twelve Years a Slave. MacAvoy was in Trance. If they are not stars they are rising just as fast as Lawrence and Cumberbatch. Giamatti was in what this year?

        I don’t disagree with you, either, but Fassbender is very much an A-lister. Giamatti is more of a character actor, no?

      • scheebles

        The Counselor bombed. And Trance bombed even harder to the tune of $2 million dollars domestic. Total. Fassbender will be an A-lister this time next year because of 12 Years a Slave… but not just yet. Giamatti has been nominated for two Oscars in the last decade. Lawrence is a star already. Two Oscar noms, one win, a mega blockbuster franchise as the star, and then a supporting role in X-men. She’s huge.

      • The Flobbit

        You Americans, always thinking that America is the centre of the world, and that everyone revolves around you. Well it doesn’t. Fassbender is huge in England, with Shame, Prometheus, and X-Men: First Class making him a bonafide superstar. It doesn’t matter whether The Counsellor bombed or not, as he still was in the public’s eye and got a good deal of praise for his role.

        MacAvoy is rising faster than anyone, with British successes Welcome to the Punch, Filth, X-Men: First Class, and Trance giving him high publicity.

        Giamatti nominated for two Oscars in the last decade? He’s 46. MacAvoy has gotten two BAFTA noms in the last 6 years, and Fassbender has won more awards than most young stars.

        Whether or not Lawrence is a star already is debatable, but she is one part of a much bigger picture here. MacAvoy and Fassbender, not to mention Hoult and Page will carry the movie alongside of some of Hollywood’s heavy hitters. Look, I’m tired of this conversation since it seems nothing is getting through to you…

      • scheebles

        Hey, I’m not disagreeing with you. I MUCH prefer the X-Men cast. Fassbender is an amazing actor and I own Hunger and Shame. I’m just saying that you have to understand that MacAvoy and Fassbender are not box office gold A-listers. Giamatti isn’t either, but his name is more widely known at the present time. But there should be no debate about Lawrence. Hunger Games did $400 million in America alone and Silver Linings Playbook did $130 million in America. That’s back-to-back massive hits and a third one on the way that will top them both…

      • The Flobbit

        OK, ok, great! So Lawrence is a star, huh? Seems that not long ago she was a young actress with charm and a gritty performance in a drama film – Winter’s Bone.

        And mark my words, Fassbender and MacAvoy are on the way to big things. BIG. THINGS.

      • scheebles

        I’m pretty sure I said that this time next year Fassbender will be an A-lister. lol. Seriously, he will be, he’s an amazing actor with charm and charisma. It’ll just take the attention he’ll receive from 12 Years a Slave. Attention that he SHOULD’VE received for Shame but over here in America we’re so uptight about sex that everyone refused to talk about the dirty “NC-17″ movie.

      • The Flobbit

        I love Fassbender and all, but James MacAvoy seems to me the better actor – the more psychological actor. His Xavier goes from cocksure playboy (which MacAvoy pulls off with suave aplomb) to a raw, wounded animal scarred deep from a lifetime of pain. MacAvoy in Trance was a wonder to behold, how he quietly kept the audience riveted – not like Fassbender – Fassbender makes the screen his own by capturing it and chewing the scenery.

        That’s just my opinion, and both are incredible actors. In my opinion, the role of David in Prometheus – a soul who wanted so desperately to be human, but didn’t realize that humans are imperfect beings, and this conflicted with his perfect brain – is one of Fassbender’s finest performances, and the best thing about the movie.
        My god – that scene in the map room with David cradling the globe, with Harry Gregson-Powell’s amazing score…chills. up. my spine.

      • JBug

        Jennifer Lawrence and Hugh Jackman are two of the biggest names in Hollywood.

      • XS

        Diminishing Box Office returns?
        THE WOLVERINE is about to become the second highest grossing X-MEN film in the franchise. It stands at a 405 worldwide and with an impressive debut in China, it could pass by 410 and even scratch 420 million worldwide by the end of its run.
        X2 made a total of 407 Million in 2002.

        Sure… that’s what I call diminishing BO returns.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        I’m referring to domestic box office. The Wolverine was able to kill it overseas but made less in the US than any of the previous X Men entries. The studios depend more on what the films will make stateside as that is where most of their profits will be made. Remember, in China they only take 25% of the profit made. But yes worldwide you are correct.

      • Me

        It’s diminished domesitically..Globally not at all.. Kind of like what happened with Spider -Man 3

  • Jan

    Music’s laying it on way too thick.

  • bumber

    Yawn..Singer should stick to real world thriller genre rather than superhero segment. X-Men 1-2 and Superman Returns were all snooze fest. Give me Matthew Vaughn anytime..

  • MrBurrrns

    I’m afraid this will suffer from the same things as the previous movies – too many characters and in Singer’s case no proper big action scenes. Oh well, surprise us Fox.

    • JBug

      I don’t mind if the action scenes aren’t big if they’re organic. In X2, everything flowed really nicely. I hopeful that we get the same quality here.

      • The Flobbit

        Good point. Though that president attack in the beginning is brilliant. One of superhero films greatest action scenes, up there with the train fights in Spider-Man 2 and The Wolverine, the final battle in The Avengers, and pretty much EVERYTHING about X-Men: First Class.

      • MrBurrrns

        You guys are right of course. But they’ve been building this up for so long, I want to finally see some awesome mutants vs sentinels action. Bring it on! :)

      • JBug

        We got big mutant vs mutant in X3 and it didn’t pay off.

      • MrBurrrns

        Yeah, but we all know how the production of X3 went…

      • The Flobbit

        Wait until Summer 2014. You will get your prize!

    • JBug

      I don’t mind if the action scenes aren’t big if they’re organic. In X2, everything flowed really nicely. I hopeful that we get the same quality here.

    • mattinacan

      screw big action scenes, i’m not some retarded 13 year old waiting for the next transformers or fast&furious garbage. Just give me a great story and great acting.

      • MrBurrrns

        You can have great action without it being retarded, you know?

  • The Flobbit

    The music is a bit overpowering, and obviously they’re holding back the action scenes to get the CGI done, but Fassbender (one cool cat), Jackman (the anchor and these movies), and MacAvoy (brilliant as brilliant gets), not to mention the huge cast (Lawrence, Stewart, McKellen, Berry, Page, Ashmore, Paquin, Dinklage, Sy, and Bingbing) will definitely make this a compelling and cool movie.

    I love the political aspect of this, and the fact that Singer is back to managing HUGE casts. I only hope he can put a lot of action in there, and have a compelling villain, which is what The Wolverine suffered most from.

  • spartacus

    for heavens sake..theres just as much magneto and xavier in this trailer as there is wolverine..and not only that but theres two of each of them and people are still complaining wolverine is the centre of attention….maybe he will be, but for now about we just appreciate a kick ass trailer.

  • Faptain America

    It’s a great trailer to bring back casual fans who aren’t necessarily fact-checking Sentinel heights and costume colors every waking moment. It reminds people of the characters and clarifies why the old and new cast are appearing together.
    It would’ve been nice though to tease the villain for casual fans. Many people watching this trailer in the theater will have no idea what their beloved Dinklage is doing in an X-men movie.

  • The Flobbit

    I am going to go out on a limb here, but did anyone notice Hugh Jackman’s FREAKISHLY big arm veins as he chopped down that tree in The Wolverine? I mean, PLEASE tell me those were CGI, because that was unsettling.

    • Sten

      He used The Rock’s training advices, so go figure…

      I agree, but that’s DOFP in a nutshell. The future seems very tight/small. It’ll make the 70s feel bigger.

        Yep, i hope that Singer will be able to pull it all together and he probably will. Its just all the random mutants, leather outfits and bright colors that are a little unnerving

    Maybe I’m cynical, but was that not like one of the funniest trailers ever? It was just a bunch of people staring off-screen or at each other with voice over. Was this a deconstruction of Terrence Malick?

      Yes, her name is Fan Bingbing, or technically Bingbing Fan, and she is a superstar around here in China. She is a decent actress, and she is hot. I should know…I met her once at a movie premiere.

  • Alex Hajna

    Obviously I’m excited for this movie, but this trailer was a bit heavy-handed. Like they were trying too hard for a tone that I just wasn’t getting. I love the music (it’s actually three of my favorite scores of all time), but it didn’t fit the visuals, in my opinion.

  • Strong Enough

    Bryan singer betta not fuck this up!

  • Daz

    Hmm… My concern about this possibly being over bloated is growing… Hopefully it will mark the end of the original characters timeline and things can refresh for the next one. With new, younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey, etc. A mini-reboot. That’d the best outcome I think.

  • Ozweego

    Singer still playing up “The Usual Suspects” fame I see. Pretty bad when a director has to go that far back to grease a trailer for a 2014 movie

    • derp derp

      That was strange, all he needed to put was Xmen and X2 and people would understand it could be like the “better” xmen. Who gices a shit if he did usual suspects. That has got to be a hurt to your ego when you can’t put a superman movie on your resume

  • Jtypatrick

    Thin looks good, I had hoped to get a dal sequel for first class first. I hope that with time travel maybe it will clean up some of the issues with xmen films and first class. It will either be great or not.

    Looks a lot darker in tone, hope it doesn’t become bland but this trailer was excellent! Please don’t make it all about Wolverine though, I understand he’s the most popular character in terms of general movie goers but please please please let other characters shine. First class showed that Xavier and Magneto can lead a movie, don’t have them as background characters in this, and it’s great to see all the old gang back just don’t get overcrowded!
