X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailer

Unless you live in New York City -- where it premiered on May 10 -- you'll have to wait until May 23 to see the star-packed summer blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past. In the meantime, though, we've posted the official trailer for what's possibly the best flick in the 7-film X-Men franchise.

Check out the trailer above for a sneak peak at the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. In keeping up with the traditional of Hollywood trailers, it doesn't reveal much about the film's plot (which is probably a good thing), but it does show some pretty awesome action sequences along with the destructive robots dubbed Sentinels.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is a sequel to both X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class. It takes place in 2023, an era when sentient robots known Sentinels are actively seeking and exterminating mutants. Of course, the humans aren't exactly well off in the future, either, as the Sentinels view them as being a precursor to mutants.

Without diving too deep into the plot, the remaining X-Men (many of whom are dead in 2023) have devised a plan to change the course of history so that Sentinels no longer exist. They'll use Shadowcat's (Ellen Page) transportation ability to send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back to the 1970s to stop an assassination that ultimately triggered the rise of the Sentinels. This plan brings Wolverine, Magneto and Professor X together in attempt to save the world for both mutants and humans.

So, how is X-Men: Days of Future Past fairing with the film critics? Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 94% on the Rotten Tomatometer, and IMBD has it rated at 9.2 based on 7,000+ user votes. Granted these ratings are from an early screening, but I think it's safe to say this is going to be a killer X-Men flick. And with the all-star cast of mutants (see list below), this is one movie you don't want to miss this summer.

  • High Jackman - Wolverine
