X-Men: Days of Future Past is an upcoming 2014 American superhero film, based on the fictional X-Men characters appearing in Marvel Comics and on the 1981 Uncanny X-Men storyline "Days of Future Past" by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. Directed by Bryan Singer, it is the seventh film in the X-Men film series and the third X-Men film directed by Singer after 2000's X-Men and 2003's X2. It stars an ensemble cast including Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Nicholas Hoult, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman and Lucas Till. The story is written by Simon Kinberg, Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman, with Kinberg writing the screenplay.

Days of Future Past acts as a sequel to both 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand and 2011's X-Men: First Class, as well as a follow-up to 2013's The Wolverine. Principal photography began in April 2013 in Montreal, Canada and ended in August 2013.[1][2] The film was shot in 3D and is scheduled to be released on May 23, 2014.[3]

Premise[edit]

The X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class in a battle that must change the past – to save their future.[4]

Cast[edit]

The cast features characters from the original trilogy of X-Men films and the prequel X-Men: First Class.

Director Bryan Singer stated that "Hugh of the future is sent, his consciousness is sent into his younger self [and] Hugh gets to play both parts because [Wolverine] is ageless."[5]
Singer described the younger Xavier as being "a very different beast from First Class' feckless playboy. He's a wounded animal, bearded, long-haired, filled with rage at the way the world has treated him."[8] According to Stewart, there will be an explanation for Professor X's return after he was vaporized by Jean Grey in X-Men: The Last Stand.[9] Professor X's return was previously alluded to during a post-credits scene in X-Men: The Last Stand and a mid-credits scene in The Wolverine.[10]
Singer described McKellen's role as "also a fixture in the future war, facing an enemy so monstrous that it forces former foes to band together."[11]
Singer stated that Mystique "is less innocent, evolved, getting closer to where Mystique was in X-Men 2."[12] Lawrence revealed that Mystique is split off from Lensherr and Xavier and she has one mission of trying to assassinate somebody. She added "we’ve seen her [Mystique] in the future and what she becomes and this is kind of a turning point for her."[13]
Singer described Storm as "one of the last surviving X-Men in this post-apocalyptic world".[14] Berry stated that "there’s something very revealing and shocking about Storm in this movie. There are some things you find out about her that I think give you much more insight into who she is." When asked about if her pregnancy affected Storm's role, she replied "I wasn’t in as much as I was meant to be. My ever-growing belly was posing a constant challenge! What I could do was getting more limited so the role that I play is so different from what it could have been, due to my surprise pregnancy."[15]
Singer described Pryde as the prime facilitator and that Pryde's phasing ability enables time-travel to happen.[17]
A military scientist and the head of Trask Industries who created a range of robots called Sentinels whose purpose is to hunt and destroy mutants.[18] Dinklage stated that Trask "sees what he’s doing as a good thing — [his ambition is] definitely blind and he’s quite arrogant. He’s strove all his life for a certain respect and attention." He also stated that Trask is up against Richard Nixon.[19]
When Ashmore was asked about what can be expected to see how his character's relationship with Rogue has evolved since X-Men: The Last Stand, he replied "they’re constantly having these relationship issues so we’ll see what happens."[20]
Sy described Bishop as the guy from the future and that he fights for survival.[21] Singer revealed that Bishop and along with Warpath, Sunspot and Blink are not fresh recruits. He stated "they’re more refugees that are living day to day in this hideously ruined world. They don’t have much hope in the future. They’re on the run and they join forces with the remaining X-Men to try to do this one last attempt at fixing the world."[22]
Peters described Quicksilver as "very fast, he talks quick, he moves quick. Everything else is very slow compared to him, it’s like he’s always at the ATM waiting for the bastard in front of him to finish."[27]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner reported in August 2006 that renegotiations would be required to continue the X-Men main film series. Newer cast members of X-Men: The Last Stand were signed, while the older cast members were not.[31] Donner stated, "There is forty years worth of stories. I’ve always wanted to do "Days of Future Past" and there are just really a lot of stories yet to be told."[32] She later pitched Bryan Singer on doing a fourth installment of the previously established X-Men franchise, following the completion of X-Men: First Class.[33] In March 2011, Shuler Donner revealed that the film was in "active development at Fox," saying, "We took the treatment to Fox and they love it... And X4 leads into X5".[34]

20th Century Fox envisioned the 2011 prequel X-Men: First Class as the first film of a new X-Men trilogy.[35] Donner compared the franchise plans to be similar to the darker, more mature content of the Harry Potter film series.[36] Early reports had Matthew Vaughn and Singer returning to direct and produce the sequel, respectively.[37] While still attached to the project as a director, Vaughn stated, "First Class is similar to Batman Begins, where you have the fun of introducing the characters and getting to know them, but that takes time. But with the second one, you can just get on with it and have a rollicking good time. That's the main difference between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight."[38] Describing how the next movie could open, Vaughn stated, "I thought it would be fun to open with the Kennedy assassination, and we reveal that the magic bullet was controlled by Magneto."[39] Singer has stated that the film could be set around the civil rights movement or the Vietnam War,[40] and that Wolverine could once again be featured.[41]

Pre-production[edit]

In November 2011, Simon Kinberg who co-wrote X-Men: The Last Stand and co-produced X-Men: First Class was hired to write the screenplay of the film.[42] In May 2012, 20th Century Fox announced a July 18, 2014 release date for the film.[43] The release date was later moved up two months earlier for a May 23, 2014 release.[3] In August 2012, the title for the film was confirmed to be X-Men: Days of Future Past. The film is said to be inspired by Chris Claremont and John Byrne's X-Men comic book storyline, "Days of Future Past". The comic book storyline ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 in 1981 during Claremont and Byrne's run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.[44]

In October 2012, Matthew Vaughn left the director duties to focus on Mark Millar's The Secret Service 2014 film adaptation. He is still attached to the film as a producer.[45] Bryan Singer was later announced as the director of the film. This is the third time that Singer is directing an X-Men movie.[46]

John Myhre and Louise Mingenbach were hired as production designer and costume designer, respectively. According to Singer, Mingenbach, who worked previously in X-Men, X2 and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, will no longer produce the usual black leather costumes that were featured in the original trilogy.[47][48] John Ottman who collaborated with all of Singer's works since X2 has confirmed to work on the music and the editing of the film.[49] Richard Stammers revealed in an interview that he is working on the film as the visual effects supervisor.[50]

Singer stated that the story will partially be set during the 1970s and former United States president Richard Nixon will be a character in the film. He also stated that the film will be the biggest movie that he's ever made,[51] and he revealed that he approached film director James Cameron to talk about time travel, string theory and multiverses.[52]

Casting[edit]

"I decided that the next time I got myself involved in a movie that had a huge amount of attention already that I would use Twitter. As a way of connecting with fans, principally. And also as a way of clearing up misunderstandings so that people know. You know, they may hear that an actor is cast or hear somebody is going to be in it, but until I say it's so, that's the confirmation."[53]

—Bryan Singer explaining the Twitter presence of the film.

Director Bryan Singer used the online social networking service Twitter to reveal casting announcements of the film.[53] In November 2012, Singer announced that James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult will be reprising their First Class roles. Later in the same month, he announced that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will reprise their respective roles as the older versions of the characters played by McAvoy and Fassbender.[6][7][54] In December, Singer announced that Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Wolverine.[55] In January 2013, Singer announced that Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore and Ellen Page will reprise their roles of Rogue, Iceman and Kitty Pryde.[56] In February, Singer announced that Peter Dinklage will star in the film as the main antagonist.[57] In March, Singer announced that French actor Omar Sy has joined the cast.[58] Halle Berry confirmed in an interview that she's returning to reprise her role as Storm, which was followed by announcement from Singer that Berry will be in the film.[59][60] Singer tweeted a picture of headshots of the cast, which confirmed that Daniel Cudmore will return as Colossus and that Fan Bingbing and Booboo Stewart had joined the cast.[23] In April, Singer announced that American singer and songwriter Lady Gaga has joined the cast as Dazzler,[61] but it was later revealed that it was an April Fools' Day prank.[53] Singer retweeted a photo of himself, Adan Canto and confirmed cast members Stewart, McKellen and Ashmore, which was followed by a confirmation from Canto that he had joined the cast.[62] In May, Singer announced that Evan Peters had joined the cast as Quicksilver.[63] In June, Australian actor Josh Helman was cast in a role.[64] In July, Singer tweeted a picture in Twitter of actor Lucas Till at the set of the film, which confirmed that the actor is returning as Havok.[29]

Filming[edit]

Principal photography on X-Men: Days of Future Past began on April 15, 2013 at Mel's Cité du Cinema in Montreal, Canada and ended on August 17, 2013.[1][65][2] Olympic Stadium, Montreal City Hall and McGill University were also used as locations for filming.[66][67] It is the first X-Men film to be filmed in 3D.[68] The film was shot using Arri Alexa-M cameras with Leica Primes and Fujinon Zooms.[69] Chris Claremont revealed in an interview that he will be consulted for the film.[70] Additional filming in Montreal took place in November 2013.[71]

Visual effects[edit]

Moving Picture Company and Digital Domain are working on the visual effects of the film.[72][73]

Music[edit]

Director Bryan Singer's regular collaborator John Ottman will work on the score of the film, in addition to being its editor.[74] Ottman will be the first composer to score more than one film in the X-Men film series, having previously scored 2003's X2.

Release[edit]

X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled to be released in 2D and 3D theaters on May 21, 2014, in various international markets and on May 23, 2014 in the United States.[75] It will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.[3]

Marketing[edit]

The cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con International.

In June 2013, 20th Century Fox presented a set tour video of X-Men: Days of Future Past in CineEurope conference in Barcelona, Spain, with director Bryan Singer as the tour guide.[76] The set tour video was later attached to the home video release of the 2013 film The Wolverine.[77] In July 2013, Singer, writer Simon Kinberg, producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Hutch Parker and cast members Evan Peters, Omar Sy, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Peter Dinklage presented at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con International. Footage from the film was screened.[78] In August 2013, Singer presented footage from the film at the Fantasia International Film Festival.[79]

For the theatrical release of The Wolverine, a mid-credits scene teasing X-Men: Days of Future Past was attached.[80] The scene, set two years after the events of The Wolverine, depicts Logan going through an airport security checkpoint while a commercial for Trask Industries plays in the background. All of a sudden, Logan notices that all the metal objects around him start to shake and levitate. He whirls around to find Magneto, who claims he needs Logan's help to combat a threat to all mutants. When Logan asks Magneto why he should trust him, all the people around them freeze as Professor Xavier approaches Logan and assures him that Magneto is telling the truth. Adam Pockross of Yahoo! Movies described the mid-credits scene as the coolest part of The Wolverine and stating, "Boom! And that's how you tease the next film: by giving us so much to chew on, yet so few answers."[10]

In October 2013, the first official trailer for the film was released.[81] Jason Callina of The Herald News gave the trailer a positive response stating "it is fantastic to see characters that I grew up with in the flesh.. we still have to wait till the end of May to see if Fox succeeded, but for now they have my interest."[82] However, Ben Child of The Guardian criticized the trailer for the amount of characters that will appear in the film, stating "overloading the movie with superheroes might please fans of the comic books, but the rest of us will be chewing on our own spleens when the umpteenth brightly coloured dude turns up to spout one line of dialogue, then drop off the map."[83]

In addition, two viral websites were launched before the release of the film: Trask-Industries.com in July 2013[84] and TheBentBullet.com in November 2013.[85]

Promotional partners[edit]

In July 2013, CKE Restaurant Holdings, Inc. and 20th Century Fox announced a promotional partnernship for the theatrical release of X-Men: Days of Future Past. The upcoming promotion includes advertising, in-restaurant merchandising, collectors’ cups and a new film-themed burger from CKE Restaurants such as Hardee's and Carl's Jr. Zachary Eller, senior vice president of marketing partnerships & promotions at 20th Century Fox stated "their fun and irreverent advertising campaigns are a great fit with our film and we couldn’t be more thrilled to join together to feed mutants everywhere!".[86]

Sequel[edit]

In December 2013, Singer announced the upcoming X-Men film, titled X-Men: Apocalypse. The film is scheduled to be released on May 27, 2016.[87] Apocalypse will be a direct sequel to the film and will be directed by Singer.[88]
