We’re a mere three weeks away from the debut of X-Men: Days of Future Past, and to celebrate, we’ve got three clips to share.
Fox is releasing footage left and right, but so far it has done a pretty good job of whetting our appetite without spoiling the main course. That appears to continue in these new videos, which highlight meetings between characters like Beast and Wolverine, young Magneto and Xavier, and Mystique and Bolivar Trask.
If you’re a fanboy's fanboy, your head may very well explode while watching our first clip, which features Peter Dinklage’s Trask and Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique. It’s like Tyrion Lannister squaring off against Katniss Everdeen, only somehow cooler. There’s some good action in this encounter, with Mystique laying a beatdown on a whole room of armed men.
Things get a little more dramatic in our second clip, which features the younger Magneto and Xavier having a tense disagreement on an in-flight plane. Fassbender and McAvoy do a nice job of giving it all gravitas – it’s easy to imagine scenes like this spiraling off into pure melodrama with lesser actors.
And finally, we end on a lighter note with this snippet featuring the first meeting between Wolverine and Beast. No description beyond that is really necessary, but this is easily the funniest of the new videos. Check it out below.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will try to end the war between humans and mutants on May 23.
