Final ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Trailer: Wolverine’s Team vs. The Sentinels

Published 4 months ago by , Updated April 16th, 2014 at 7:37 am,

After an eight-year long wait, (most of) director Bryan Singer’s original X-Men film roster – last seen in 2006′s X-Men: The Last Stand returns for another super-powered mutant adventure in just a matter of weeks. X-Men: Days of Future Past brings back the heroes and villains played by Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Shawn Ashmore, Ian McKellen and Halle Berry (& more!) and sees them share screen time with the core cast of 2011′s prequel X-Men: First Class.

Days of Future Past, the most expensive comic book film ever made, is the first Marvel movie to introduce time-travel, a common plot device featured in the comics, and thanks to its introduction, fans get to see the X-Men franchise veterans listed above joined by First Class stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence and Lucas Till.

Like previous films in the series, X-Men: Days of Future Past deals with anti-mutant hysteria but takes it to the extreme. Mutant-hunting machines called Sentinels were created in the ’70s (Nixon era) thanks to a man named Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), and over the years future iterations of the machines evolved, ultimately lost control and nearly destroyed the planet. Now, the remaining mutants left alive must band together for one last mission to send Wolverine (Jackman) to the past and prevent this post-apocalyptic future from ever becoming a reality.

The first Days of Future Past teaser introduced the returning characters and the core story element of using time travel to save the world, and the second X-Men: DOFP trailer focused on the action, showcasing the new and returning mutants using their super powers and battling the Sentinels. After some questionable marketing involving some less-than-stellar promo art and some burger-related commercials, the final trailer is now here for Fox’s 2014 superhero tentpole. Check it out and see how it compares to what we’ve seen from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which releases just a few weeks earlier.

Wolverine, the star of the franchise and of this movie in particular (we even get two versions of him!), gets all the screen time as the final trailer focuses strictly on his mission to the past and efforts to recruit and unit the most important mutants capable of helping out in the ’70s. We even get to see new characters like Quicksilver and Bishop in action, with their powers on display.

Fans will notice a few inconsistencies that the movie will attempt to explain, from Beast no longer being blue and furry, young Charles Xavier walking, old Wolverine having adamantium claws, etc. We don’t know why these things have all been altered, but the movie will offer explanations for all of them (we hope) according to Singer.

Still, the trailer is the best one yet for the film, offering plenty of action, spectacle, mutant powers, giant robots, and of course, a little bit of character humor. If anything, seeing Hugh Jackman still owning the role of the iconic Wolverine is a strong selling point for longtime fans, even if he’s supported by one of the most impressive film casts ever assembled in summer blockbuster. Excited?

Stick around for our in-depth analysis of the new trailer and be sure to check out the 100+ high-res photos and breakdown of the previous trailer!

  1. been kinda apathetic about this movie (not in a negative way, mind you. I have been looking forward to it, just not actively) but now that it’s close I can feel my excitement flaring again. :D

    just the fact that they seemed to have gone all out in this, with both the effects, acting and emotional stakes makes me very hopeful about it.

    it truly feels like now that comicbook movies are established as a no brainer success 90% of the time, they can finally afford to indulge themselves with all the creative depths the genre has to offer without constantly having to justify their own existence throughout the movie, fearing the weirdness will put the audience off.

    in short, I have high hopes for this one!

    • This looks really awesome, looking forward to this and hope it will deliver. :-)

  2. I’ve seen Xmen, X2, X3, xmen origins wolverine, the wolverine and first class, so im gonna see this. This trailer actually sold me.

  3. I like what i’ve read about the movie… but this trailer sucked. Maybe I was expecting something better…
    And what’s with the music. Isn’t that the Puff Daddy track in the Godzilla Sountrack from de 90s?

    • Godzilla, the single best soundtrack ever?!?

      • I know you don’t know any better so I won’t hold it against you…but referring to that song as the Godzilla song/soundtrack made me die a bit inside…

    • No… that song is called Kashmir by Led Zeppelin. P.Daddy just used the guitar riff for his song.

    • Led Zeppelin created the original song. The song is called Kashmir. There was a cover done for Godzilla.

    • I’m going to weep for the children now.

  4. I’ve been thinking and partly believe having Wolverine be the central character to carry the X-Men movies is not an entirely good choice. Granted there are more fans for the character but that leaves out the millions that want more. I’m crossing my fingers on this movie only in the hopes that other characters can get some attention and their own movies. Iceman anyone :)

    • For sure, Wolverine bores me, plus he already has his spin off movies, why does he need to be the one carrying the movie? He’s the most boring x-men, boring powers.

      • You say that as if the comics themselves never capitalized on Wolverine’s popularity by making him front and center of pretty much every issue he had a part in. Hell, on the original Days of Future Past covers, Wolverine is front and center even though Kitty was the real ‘main character’. At least the films are being honest about it.

  5. This film has the potential to be one of the greatest Comic-films ever created. Only second to TDK. I really hope they dig deep into the mutant-phobia aspect of the story.

    • It’s in there, big time. Even Beast is killed and wiped out by the Friends of Humanity during a protest march that ended really badly.

      25moments.com

      They really went all out to adapt the story of Days of Future Past to the big screen, word for word so I think it’s going to surprise people. They will have the newspaper articles of mutants killed. The concentration camp and oh yeah, the Sentinel war with Nimrod facing off against all the X-Men at one time. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some shockers.

  6. One thing they also need to answer is where the sentinels were in all the other movies – they appeared in The Last Stand briefly, but barely. And since it’s a pretty direct follow-up from The Wolverine, they can’t have been existing the whole time in the background (plus the mutant-phobia seemed to decrease when Beast got a high-up government position, though perhaps he was killed, hence why he ‘didn’t make it’ as Wolverine says).

    • Beast was killed by a group of mutant haters. Its on the 25moments website

    • That is exactly what I was thinking! All of these other X movies seem to have existed without the bother of ANY sentinels mentioned or seen. So what changed?

      Unless someone else went back to the past and changed something (Mystique or Magneto kill the president)….and Wolvie goes back. If so, that begs the question, “who sent them back, or how did they go back?” So,…why not just stop the assassination?

      At the end of The Wolverine mid credits scene, Charles and Magneto find Wolvie 2 years later and warm him of the “Dark forces,… building a weapon that could bring the end to our kind”. So apparently in that timeline, it seems that they were just starting? Grrr

      This seems like it might just be so convoluted overall, but i will watch it and try to enjoy it. Wish someone would really think out ALL OF THE ISSUES.

  7. I love watching a completely functional commercial only to find the actual video is choppy, loads slowly, and eventually just stops working. Totes worth it.

  8. Hey Screenrant, why don’t you get some decent bandwidth?

  9. Can I say Phenoix

    • You can’t spell it.

  10. This is possibly the worst article I’ve ever read.

    Which of the 800 links IS THE ACTUAL TRAILER?

    Ridiculous click-bait. Won’t be visiting this site ever again. NOTE TO ADVERTISERS, THIS SITE IS P@SSING PEOPLE OFF

  11. Despite the crappy and unfunny jokes Tony Stark/Avengers alike (we are going to be friends, you just don’t know it yet….eerrr), the trailer is awesome. But the dark tonality of the previous trailers were better, at least for me.

    Also, I keep thinking this movie is going to be much more about Xavier and Magneto than Wolverine. After Magneto escapes from the prison and the guys are united, I wonder what will be Logan’s part..because on the previous trailers, was all about Charles and Eric.

    And for those who were bitching out saying that the only action future of the future characters would be that opening scene…we got a lot of Blink, Colossus and Bishop fighting against Sentinels on the Chinese Temple.

  12. Still not convinced that this one won’t suck as much as ALL of the other X-Men films. After the mess that has been the “Marvel Universe” of films, I truly wish that Hollywood would just stop screwing up my childhood.

  13. Just out of curiosity…shouldn’t the professor be in a wheel chair? Why is it that he is standing up in half the movie trailer?

    • i love how people who NEVER read the comics act like they are qualified to review the movie’s plot and character development. although everything in the comics can’t be included in the films, at least read them first before judging what’s doctrine and what’s filler.

  14. Oh great. The X-men are wolverine’s team now. I am glad he got a promotion considering he wasn’t even second command in the comics…or third or fourth for that matter. I am just glad Fox isn’t doing Ninja Turtles. Say what you want about Michael Bay, but at least he hasn’t killed off Leonardo and made raphael the leader.

  15. So basically this is Wolverine 3?

    • LMAO.. I like this

      • Nope this is First Class sequel.. Wolverine 3 is in talks atm. Apocolypse *typo, is going to be First Class 3
