Spoiler Alert! The following may contain content that may give away important details about "X-Men: Days of Future Past" movie. Otherwise, read on.
"The ultimate 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 an epic battle that must change the past - to save our future," Twentieth Century Fox wrote on IMDb.
The superhero film that is based on the characters of X-Men comics is the third installment for "X-Men: The Last Stand" in 2006 and "X-Men: First Class." Also, the new X-Men is a follow-up for the movie "The Wolverine" in 2013.
According to an IMDb trivia, Hugh Jackman, playing the role of Logan/Wolverine, is said to have raised his own record for the "most times a comic book character has been played by the same actor in theatrical films" with seven times portrayal of the said character.
Consider this the real spoiler because Wolverine, played by Jackman, is going to be the time-traveler who will bridge the past and the future. Wolverine is also the only character in the movie who will show up as an "ageless immortal character." In the comic "Days of Future Past," however, it was Shadowcat.
The shooting of the superhero film went on under the working title "Hello Kitty." Why is that? The trivia stated that because the title was referred to an X-Men member Kitty Pryde.
Huge stars Hugh Jackam, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will be part of the movie.
According to the trailer of X-Men: Days of Future Past posted on YouTube, the superhero film is set to hit theaters on Mar. 23, 2014.
