Let’s ease into this first day of the new year with some photos teasing one of the most anticipated films of 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Most of these images are new, but I peppered in a few from past weeks that I hadn’t run yet.
Assuming you can tear your eyes from that image of a stunningly gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence smiling at the camera and move on with your life — I know I had trouble doing that — you might spot director Bryan Singer in the mix; he’s wearing a plaid shirt and sitting on the hood of the car and standing next to Prof. X. This movie adapts a popular time-traveling storyline that sees Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) travel into the past to try to prevent a dystopian, mutant-hating future from coming to pass.
The movie stars the cast from X-Men: First Class — including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Lawrence — and the cast from the earlier movie trilogy — Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Jackman and possibly Anna Paquin (but probably not) — playing versions of their characters at different ages.
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23.
