Next week, 20th Century Fox will release a new trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and today they released a teaser for that trailer, when will this dumb trend end. For those not familiar with the story, the movie finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants. 20th Century Fox seems fond of releasing trailer teasers for the movie, and this one is in a 3×3 grid reminiscent of The Brady Bunch. This brand of advertising is getting tiresome, just release the trailer. We don’t need teasers or extended teasers for a trailer. The Trailer is enough.
The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Evan Peters, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, and Patrick Stewart. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for X-Men: Days of Future Past:
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.
