Three X-Men: Days Of Future Past Featurettes Reveal Even More New Footage
20th Century Fox waited nearly five full months between trailer releases promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past, but now it's safe to say that the media blitz is on. It began with a clip from the opening scene of the film released on Sunday, which was followed by an amazing new trailer on Tuesday and a pair of featurettes on Wednesday. The studio really, really wants to make sure that you're excited for their next big comic book movie, though, so that's why today we're getting yet another three new featurettes, courtesy of Norton.
Unlike the videos that came out yesterday, which centered on two very specific scenes being filmed during the movie's production, these new ones are a bit less focused. What they do bring to the table is some brand new footage that hasn't been featured in any of the trailers yet, pus a bit of commentary from various members of the cast (but mainly Hugh Jackman). The first one is at the top and you can watch the two others below:
As I mentioned in my write-up of Tuesday's trailer, I am concerned that this marketing might soon turn into overload. Sony has spent the last few months producing so many trailers, clips, TV spots, stills and posters for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that I basically feel as though I've already seen the entire film. Right now I think I've seen the perfect amount from X-Men: Days of Future Past - enough to encourage speculation by not enough to reveal spoilers - and I hope things stay that way.
X-Men: Days of Future Past finds director Bryan Singer returning to the helm of the franchise for the first time since X2 and begins in a future where mutants have been forced underground by incredibly dangerous robots called Sentinels. In order to try and prevent this disastrous world from ever coming to be, the X-Men elect to send Wolverine's consciousness back in time to 1973. There his mission is to unite the young Professor X and Magneto and stop a cataclysmic event that changes the world completely. The all-star cast includes Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Daniel Cudmore, Adan Canto, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bing Bing, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Lucas Till, Peter Dinklage, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, and Evan Jonigkeit. Look for it in theaters on May 26th.
