Tonight you can catch some early screenings of X-Men: Days of Future Past in the later evening (check your local theater listings), but with hours to go before general audiences see the film this weekend, why not take a look at the X-Men films from the 14 years previously with this cool retrospective video. The nicely edited piece moves chronologically according to the narrative through the films starting with X-Men: First Class, moving through the original trilogy, and ending with The Wolverine before teasing the latest sequel. And everyone will be thankful that there's no reference to X-Men Origins: Wolverine anywhere.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is directed by Bryan Singer and written by Matthew Vaughn and Simon Kinberg. The sequel features cast members from the original X-Men franchise like Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Daniel Cudmore along with X-Men: First Class cast members like James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Michael Fassbender. The present day X-Men are in danger from a mistake in the past, and Wolverine is sent back in time to fix it in order to avoid a dark, terrifying future timeline. 20th Century Fox will release Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past in theaters everywhere on May 23rd this weekend. Go watch it tonight!
