Back in 2000, the X-Men films kickstarted the modern superhero genre, and we’ve been enjoying some excellent storytelling since then. Granted, it’s not all been successful – every geek cringes when they think about X-Men: The Last Stand or The Green Lantern.
Thankfully, the newest film in the mutant realm, X-Men: Days of Future Past, looks to be a return to form. Bryan Singer is back at the helm, and if this trailer is anything to go by we’re in for a hell of a ride. At the very least, it teases the film’s time-travel premise (helping the name make a lot more sense) and shows us how the two X-Men timelines come together: old and wisened Professor X, from the first films, gets face-to-face with his younger self, from X-Men origins, and inspires him to help save the world.
