Second Full-Length ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Trailer Coming Soon

New X Men Days of Future Past Photos Second Full Length X Men: Days of Future Past Trailer Coming Soon

The marketing for X-Men: Days of Future Past has primarily focused on highlighting its massive ensemble cast of new and returning characters from the long-running franchise. We’ve seen photos and promotional art for the characters over and over again (not to mention 25 different character magazine covers), but relatively little on the actual footage front, which is odd considering its fast-approaching May release date. When compared to overabundance of trailers and clips from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, also releasing in May, it’s especially noticeable.

The one Days of Future Past trailer we did get four months ago however, happened to be the same teaser we saw at Comic-Con last summer, and while we expected Fox to show at least something during the Super Bowl, the studio did not. This is finally about to change for the next X-Men film, the most expensive superhero movie ever made.

Two weeks ago director Bryan Singer released 6-second teaser and last week, Hugh Jackman teased the following, seemingly revealing that there would be something new and cool coming for fans looking forward to X-Men: Days of Future Past. The most obvious guess is that it’s going to be a new trailer.

And just days later, we discovered that the British Board of Film Classification has rated a second full-length trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past with a runtime of 2 minutes and 28 seconds. Finally! With the first trailer focusing on re-introducing the characters from the original X-Men trilogy and returning stars from X-Men: First Class, alongside the idea of there being two time periods explored in the film, this second trailer will ideally tease the greater threat the mutants are battling against, and better yet, finally show some of the Sentinels in action – giant mutant-hunting robots.

With trailer classifications occurring shortly before their release, we can assume the trailer and Jackman’s tweet to Good Morning America above are definitely related. The timing also coincides with the international release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier which debuts on March 28th in the UK but two days earlier in other regions, a full week before it opens in North America. It’s a safe bet the new X-Men trailer will be attached.

In related news, Total Film debuted a new still from X-Men: Days of Future Past, featuring stars Hugh Jackman, Nicholas Hoult and Michael Fassbender doing their thing in the ’70s time period of the film. They’re standing together and not against each other, indicating that at this point in the film they’ve been at least partly successful in attempting to recruit young Magneto’s help.

What one thing are you most looking forward to see in the second Days of Future Past trailer?

  1. News? or blog-hit drivel?

    • Drivel rating 93%…………

    • Drivel? Man, I guess I shouldn’t have put so many words and discussion points into this post late in the evening…

      • Haters be hating Rob

        I appreciate the news on this movie – as X-Men is my favorite franchise…

  2. I’m still gonna wait for the homevideo for this one, but seriously… this 2nd trailer is long overdue. I mean, many people still don’t know about this movie. Many people as in general audience, not fanboys/girls.

    The first trailer was played when I watched The LEGO Movie, and the comments around me was either they were clueless about it, or other negative comments like ‘Bah, looks boring’. So far I think only die hard fans knows more to be excited about this movie.

    • I think its because its the 7th X-Men movie and people are getting burnt out on it. Especially since the teaser didn’t show anything that mindblowing that distinguishes it from previous X-Men films. Aside from combined casts.

      • How do you get burnt out on a movie series that only ever releases once every 3 years (Apart from the recent Wolverine and First Class, which were very different compared to the previous films) and has been named one of the greatest comic book movie franchises of all time? You can’t tell me it’s because no one was interested in it.

        For the record, who were you sitting with? Children? The X-Men films aren’t so old that only adults over the age of 50 even remember what they were about.

        I remember when there was crazy hype about this movie when the first trailer came out and people were singing it’s praises. Now suddenly everyone’s against it for some reason.

        • For me it just looks more of the same. Its like the Amazing Spider-Man 2, I’m more excited for the sequels and spinoffs than I am this current film. I’m more pumped for Apocalypse and X-Force than Days of Future Past.

        • “Now suddenly everyone’s against it for some reason.”

          I’ve been against it since the first trailer because it just hasn’t looked impressive yet.

          That’s what a trailer’s meant to do, give you an impression of the finished movie and help you decide whether to spend money on it or avoid it and right now, it’s hovering directly over the “AVOID” section of my built-in Film-O-Meter.

    • Damn, you’re lucky then.

      When I saw The LEGO Movie, they only showed age appropriate trailers so other than Muppets Most Wanted, I had to put up with crap like Rio 2, some Tinkerbell trailer, the animated Tarzan movie trailer and a few other horrendously bad children’s movie trailers that weren’t notable enough to remember.

    • Thats stupid man, I just pictured you running around your theatre pre-Lego Movie asking everyone what they thought of The X-Men trailer, pretty sure it didn’t happen and you just heard what you yourself think of the movie and projected it onto everyone else.

      And who besides the studio should care about people’s awareness? Marketing is what they use to sell movies and has little to do with quality.

      • I dunno, I was sat in the cinema screen on one side of the room watching The LEGO Movie and could clearly hear a 3 year old on the other side of the room talking to its older sibling as if they were sat right next to me. Unless you only see movies that constantly throw noise at you or where everyone is talking at once for hours.

  3. It’s about time a new trailer came out but regardless of the trailers, teaser clips etc it’s fair to say this is gonna make Fox a fair chunk of change if The Wolverine can gross over $400mill X-Men will do just fine.

    • This could be the first X-Men film to cross $500 million. This film comes out the week after Godzilla so it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out. I personally hope Godzilla stomps the sh*t out of X-Men.

  4. This movie is very underrated right now. It could be the best xmen yet. Simply can’t wait. Any movie with Wolverine is good minus the prequel of course :)

  5. I am I the only one who thinks the man in the painting above their heads (in the black suit above Hoult’s character) looks exactly like wolverine? Like perhaps in the first time travel experiment they sent him too far back into the civil war, and someone painted him? Or is it The Wovie-Shining, and he’s always been running this hotel…

    • For the record (if we’re counting X-Men Origins) Wolverine actually was alive during the Civil War. He fought in it, actually.

    • It’s a famous painting of the french revolution, not the civil war. It’s “La liberté guidant le peuple” (Liberty leading the people), by Eugene Delacroix.

      • Thanks. I guess that explains the guy on the right of the painting wearing a French beret… Doh!

  6. This next trailer is the one that is gonna reveal Cyclops saving the day, right? I am correct, am I not? I mean, this is where the franchise finally redeems itself and brings back Cyke as the main man, no doubt. I am right about this, right?! RIGHT!?


    …{is anybody out there hearing this?…}

    • Was James Marsden confirmed to be working on the movie? If so then maybe, if not, well no then…


      • Ah well I found this on the interwebs so…

        “James Marsden was busy filming Anchorman: The Legend Continues (aka … 2) and so he was unable to be a part of X-Men: Days of Future Past”

        • James Marsden working on Superman Returns was also the reason he was killed halfway through The Last Stand.

        • Marsden was seen sitting next to Halle Berry on her flight from Vancouver to LA after she’d wrapped her scenes as Storm early in the film’s production so….

    • A reintroduced, younger Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse seems more likely.

  7. It’s about time we got another trailer, it must be a lot of special effects this time around because they’ve been in post production for a while. I just hope this second trailer reveals more of what the movie will be about and what we can expect once it premieres. I don’t doubt this movie will be enjoyable. Will it be the X-Men film that does the franchise justice….probably not, but it’ll definitely be enjoyable. Who knows, Bryan Singer might surprise us….just being hopeful!

  8. Fox got me five times already. Took some time but I finally learned my lesson. I passed The Wolverine and will pass this one too.

    • You should watch the Wolverine but stop the film after he gets knocked out with those arrows in the village. After that the film spirals right down the crapper.

      • He gets knocked out by arrows?!?

        • Not quite. You have to watch to see :)

      • I wouldn’t say it was that bad. It did feel like they tacked the ending from a different movie onto it or it was a case of “the movie is getting too long, wrap it up!”

        I saw the “twist” coming a mile away.

  9. The Wolverine was a good film. I did enjoy it and I’m looking forward to watch DoFP. I haven’t grown tired of the X Men.

  10. This is just comical now. Fire your marketing department and stop “teasing”. FOX and Singer must think there aren’t any other comic book properties coming out this year and this movie is really annoying me.

    1) One poorly made trailer
    2) One big hoopla about still magazine photos
    3) More still photos
    4) 7 second teaser (might as well be still photos)
    5) Another 7 second teaser (Might as well be still photos)
    6) A tweet announcing a surprise in two weeks

    Pathetic. Most people only have so much money to spend on movies. In the next 6 weeks along the promotional efforts for Cap, Spidey and Godzilla have peaked my intrests and will get my money.

    DOFP has annoyed me with there poor marketing and little “me too” moves whenever another film actually gives their fans some substance to chew on.

    Well that’s my rant.

  11. So while I f*king hate Fox for not including Cyclops in the movies, and just generaly f*cking everything I loved about the X-Men up, I am getting a bit excited for this movie. Let’s hope they have a heavy focus on Fassbender and the others from the First Class movie.
