On the fence about seeing X-Men: Days of Future Past this weekend because you’re not totally up to speed on all the events that have transpired in the film’s cinematic universe so far? Don’t fret – this video from Vulture will have you caught up on all the mutant shenanigans in a measly three minutes.
With six films in the franchise, getting through all the pertinent X-info in 180 seconds is pretty impressive – but the video pulls it off, covering not only the main X-Men films, but also the spin-offs in Wolverine and First Class. You’ll learn about Xavier and Magneto’s tortured relationship, the central humans-vs.-mutant conflict, how Mystique ties into the greater narrative, and more.
Naturally, this clip is filled with a few SPOILERS, which makes sense since it’s trying to give you all the pertinent info on the previous six movies. That being said, if you don’t want to sit through all six of those films between now and this weekend, or if you’re just looking for a refresher on what happened, this is your quickest way to get prepared for Days of Future Past.
If that’s not enough X-goodness for you this morning, then perhaps you’ll also enjoy this new video showing each and every one of Mystique’s transformations over the years. MTV put the clip together, and we have to admit that watching the transformations never really gets old. See if you agree. [via io9]
