X Men: Days of Future Past, New Posters and Movie Trailer – in the run up to the movie’s release on 22 May in the UK and 23 May in the US, the studio has issued new posters and a brand new trailer for X Men: Days of Future Past.
The posters show stars Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence in their roles as Storm, Wolverine and Mystique.
One of the new posters shows Wolverine posing with his bone and adamantium claws fully extended and not looking a happy boy! In the background Jennifer Lawrence is shown in her skintight blue make-up as the shape-shifting mutant Mystique.
Although many sci-fi movies are seen as fairly lightweight when it comes to acting talent this cannot be said about this particular movie. Both Halle Berry and Jennifer Lawrence are Academy Award winners and Hugh Jackman has been nominated for Best Actor as well as winning a Tony, an Emmy and a Golden Globe. Other top acting names in the new movie are Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Anna Paquin, Peter Dinklage and Michael Fassbender who are also all award-winning actors.
As you can guess with this sort of cast being assembled the producers are expecting some pretty big box-office figures from X Men: Days of Future Past. They will need to be good figures too as the estimated cost of producing the new X Men movie is around a quarter of a billion dollars ($250m).
There has been plenty of publicity for the new movie too with a special train being launched at Euston Station in London last month. This featured characters from the movie on the exterior of the new train and the event was attended by 2 of the new movie’s stars, Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy.
You can expect to see plenty more in the lead up to the movie’s release next month with magazine features from the movie’s main stars, giant billboard posters and maybe even another trailer release to look forward to.
