Past, Present, and Future Collide in X-Men Trailer

Toward the end of the summer I took a week and reviewed every entry in the X-Men film franchise, ending with a look toward next summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. After my first review series I was pretty much sick of the mutant movies and wanted nothing to do with them for a good while. That good while ended just a few days ago when the new trailer was released.
The past presented in X-Men: First Class, the present from the original trilogy, and the future alluded to at the end of The Wolverine are brought together in what looks to be the best addition to the franchise to date. While this trailer doesn't make the movie look like the series' savior that has come to fix all of the inconsistencies that riddle the X-Men movies like I hoped for, it still makes me excited for all of the mutant-attacking, government-reacting, wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey action with which this movie will undoubtedly be filled.
Director Bryan Singer is at the helm again and seems to be taking the series in an incredible direction that have fans like myself going crazy with anticipation. Days of Future Past features an all-star cast, bringing back franchise regulars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Sir Ian McKellan, as well as returns from James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Katniss Everdeen Jennifer Lawrence. Cast members from the original trilogy will also be brought back to the silver screen including Halle Berry's Storm and Ellen Page's Kitty Pryde. And Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage plays the villain, Bolivar Trask.
This little guy builds big robots that look like vacuum cleaners.
I am very much looking forward to X-Men: Days of Future Past and am eagerly awaiting May 23 to see it.
