Trailer: X-Men: Days Of Future Past

The final trailer for the latest X-Men movie, with the original director who started the franchise with X-Men and X2 – Bryan Singer – returning to bring the story full circle with Wolverine being sent back in time from the future to prevent a war.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past is released in the U.K. on 22nd May.
