“X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST” TRAILER: Jennifer Lawrence in Body Paint, and More


The studio kept their word and followed up some teaser footage with a real trailer for the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s kind of disappointing. Oh, there are plenty of reasons to watch this thing. We get our first look at Omar Sy as the comic-book character Bishop, and Booboo Stewart as Native American mutant Warpath. (With a name like Booboo, you have to look scary.) Neither of those characters were around for the original “Days of Future Past” comics story. We felt you should know.

Also, there’s more of Jennifer Lawrence in body paint as Mystique. She looks like this…

We also get a glimpse of Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask, who makes the giant Sentinel robots that eventually kill all the mutants and necessitate some time-traveling by…well, in the comics, it was Kitty Pryde as Shadowcat. We kind of thought they might shake up the plot to showcase Jennifer Lawrence some more, but Ellen Page (as Kitty) still seems to be the one traveling through alternate realities. They’re going with calling Kitty by her code name of Shadowcat, too. In the comics, we’re pretty sure that she was still known as Sprite. That’s passing up on a good merchandising opportunity.

This is still a pretty classy trailer that doesn’t show us the mutant Quicksilver or any real action. Our favorite part is the meeting of minds between young Charles Xavier (played by James McAvoy) and Patrick Stewart as the older Professor Xavier. The trailer ends with the old Professor telling the young Charles all about the importance of hope. All we can think of is poor young Charles saying to himself, “‘Hope’? I’m going to be completely bald some day!” But maybe that’s just us. Check this out and judge for yourself how excited to get over this new footage. We mainly want to know how to drag Jennifer Lawrence towards us…
