Yesterday was a big day for poster releases for upcoming movies. Not only did the first ever motion poster for Vampire Academy movie get released, but we were also treated to the first posters for the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.
In case you missed it, the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past surprised us last weekend by making an appearance and presenting at San Diego Comic-Con! You can watch the panel below –
On Monday, official posters were revealed showing both Professor X (Charles Xavier) and Magneto (Erik Lensherr) in their days, both future and past, merged together in two separate and brilliant posters.
Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellan reprise their roles, from the original trilogy, as the older versions of Professor X and Magneto, respectively, while James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender return from X-Men: First Class as the young Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr.
Joining the main cast are newcomers Peter Dinklage (Bolivar Trask), Adan Canto (Sunspot), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Fan Bingbing (Blink), Omar Sy (Bishop) and Josh Helman (William Stryker).
The film also marks the return of Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast) and Lucas Till (Havok). Mutants returning from the original trilogy include Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), Ellen Page (Shadowcat), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) and the only mutant to have appeared in all seven X-Men films, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, for whom we found this poster online, which is probably fan-made and alludes to the fact that Wolverine never grows old! The next Wolverine movie The Wolverine is out this Friday, July 25, 2013!
Filming is still underway until at least September 2013, as mentioned by director Bryan Singer (who returns as director) on Twitter.
The film releases on May 23, 2014 and is based on the 1981 Uncanny X-Men storyline of the same name.
