Okay, so that grown woman was me.
I admit I’m not nearly cool enough to be a true superhero genre fan. But the past and present mash-up idea is pure genius, especially in the movie sense, that the first full trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past made me shed some tears even though the X-Men story doesn’t have any special meaning for me.
Putting all those big stars together in the same movie with a cohesive story… wow. Sure, it’s been done wonderfully before but this one has a different sort of great promise. Here’s the trailer. Let it take your breath away. Let it give you goosebumps. And remember: there’s no shame in tears.
X-Men: Days of Future Past, to be distributed by 20th Century Fox, is scheduled for theatrical release on May 23, 2014.
