Eagerly-anticipated 'X-Men' ensemble movie will open in cinemas next May (2014)

The first trailer for X Men: Days Of Future Past has been released. Watch it below.

The film has also been given an official synopsis, which teases: “The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.”

Director Bryan Singer shot the sequel to 2011’s X-Men: First Class from April to August this year (2013) in Montreal. His film boasts a massive cast featuring nearly every familiar face from the previous five X-Men movies.

Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy all appear, joined by Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page and Anna Paquin. The full cast convened at San Diego Comic-Con in July and Singer shared a memorable photo from the event.

Some of the film’s action takes place in 1973, Singer has revealed, and President Richard Nixon will feature as a character. X-Men: Days Of Future Past opens in UK cinemas on May 22, 2014 and a day later on May 23, 2014 in the US.
