X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer

Here it is, and Newsarama has 10 Things Worth Noticing about it:

As we've noted previously, "DOFP" shows a dystopian future where mutants are hunted down to almost extinction. In the comics (X-Men #s 141-142) Kitty Pryde's mind is shunted back to her younger self's body in the hope of convincing the X-Men to thwart the assassination of Senator Kelly (seen fairly prominently in the first X-movie). It's his murder by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants that is the catalyst for the mutants' deadly future. However, in the film, it'll be Wolverine's mind which does the "switching" (and why not, as his character and Hugh Jackman are much bigger draws than Kitty Pryde/Ellen Page).

As this is one of my favorite comicbook storylines ever, I'll certainly be heading to the theatre.

This looks amazing. I can't wait to see it.

They've already planned a sequel, too, Hube. X-Men: Apocalypse will be released in 2014 and take place in the 1980s.
