Know What X-men Days of the Future Past is All About

XMen-v1-141-Days-of-the-future-past-1980-cover
Back in 1980, there was an X-men storyline called Days of the Future past which tells the story of a horrible future. That future is 2013 and they’re coming up with a movie of the same title. This movie joins the cast of the original X-men cast and the First Class cast, has been in development for the longest time, and now the trailer is HERE!

In the Days of the Future Past storyline, the mutants have lost and the world is ruled by the Sentinels, huge robots that are programmed to hunt and kill mutants. The mutant Kitty Pride or Shadowcat then travels to the past and possesses her 1980 body to try and convince the past X-men about the bad things that will happen. They try their best to prevent the future and *spoiler* succeed. The bad future doesn't go away though and ends up as an alternate timeline.

I loved this storyline and was able to read parts of it when I was in elementary. I didn’t really have the funds to read the entire series but I remember feeling really down when I saw the comic covers of the mutants being killed off.

In the upcoming movie based on this trailer, it seems that Wolverine is the person who they send back to the past instead of Shadowcat. It also appears that the 1980s Professor X is in a bit of a funk and looks always down… That’s just how James McAvoy is. It also feels like there will again be a lot of talking scenes… something that made the latest Wolverine movie suck. And there wasn’t any mention or showing of the Sentinels. None at all. Zero. Nada. Hopefully they’re prepping that for their next trailer.

X-Men: Days of Future Past” will open nationwide in the Philippines on May 22, 2014 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
