    Seems like things have changed from when Rothman and FOX wanted to kill this franchise quickly and sweep it under the rug with X:TLS

    Marvel's success with the Avengers and related films have made everyone rethink whatever franchises they have. Add to that Disney's promising plans for Star Wars, Warner's success with Harry Potter, and the prolonged series of Twilight and Hobbit films, and Fox's new attitude makes sense. Of course, what's going to hurt is when the studios realize the marketplace can only support two or three of these franchises per year.

    I think the trailer looks very promising, by the way. Singer said that most of the visual effects are not finished and therefore this trailer would be a character piece. Combine what he showed here in this trailer with epic battles with giant robots and this could be pretty damn cool. Here's hoping, anyway. And could a mod please just merge this thread with Oscar's main thread?

    Hard to judge by a trailer, even one as good as this, but I have high hopes that this will be the movie of the summer next year. There's nothing else I'm as intrigued by.

    Also, if this thread isn't to be closed, the date should be changed in the title. The movie comes out May 23.

    Since this is a sequel to First Class and the original cast got their 3 movies already, I'm fine with this except for maybe the continued focus on Wolverine.

    Anna Paquin was fine in the version of the character portrayed in these films, but her Rogue wasn't really much like the comic character at all. If she was only to be in one scene in this anyway, I don't think the cut is a big deal. Anyway, I believe the below pic is the focus of this film. image.jpg

    It would have been cool to see the character again but yeah, it's not like she could have had too significant of a role if she was in one scene. Plus, movies are so bloated and overlong today that I'm glad that Singer is apparently willing to drop cool but ultimately superfluous scenes rather than making a needlessly lengthy movie.

    I was under the impression that this was going to be filmed and shown in 48fps like The Hobbit. However, I just looked into that to see if there was more info and apparently that is not the case. Looks like they were considering it but decided against it. http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/15/x-men-days-of-future-past-filmed-released-in-48fpsThat's fine with me, as I didn't like the look of The Hobbit: AUJ in 48fps. I'd like an improvement to the blurry motion in 24fps film, especially for things like pans that become a blurry mess. But the "improvement" demonstrated with AUJ is not the solution I'd personally prefer.

    Fassbender looks eerily like Charlton Heston in the photo.

    Most likely, everything from the previous movies in risk with the different upcoming. The paradox of Scott and Jean being in the movie would be they will battling to protect where Jean destroys Xavier and Cyclops.
