X-Men: Days of Future Past Trailer 2 Review

The new trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past hit the web and has definitely surpassed expectations. The first trailer was very positively reviewed and the expectation for the second trailer was very high. The trailer is action packed and raises some question about what direction the film will go, in a positive way. It seems as if, judging from the trailers alone that the X-men will return to form with Bryan Singer, who directed the first two X-Men films, returning.

The trailer was very interesting as most of the footage in the trailer was new unseen footage rather than recycled footage from the previous trailer. This was really good and can only help to promote the film.

A criticism of the X-Men films as a whole is that their seem to be many continuity issues. One such continuity error is that in X-Men: First Class Mystique and Xavier were shown to be very close with a brother/sister relationship however in the first three X-Men films Xavier and Mystique were represented to not actually know each other. These continuity problems will most likely remain unanswered. With this new X-Men film using time travel as one of major themes, they run the risk of making more continutity issues rather than resolving them.

X-Men: Days of Future Past, judging from the trailer alone looks as if it could have the potential to be one of the best comic book movies to date.
