Trailer Watch: X-Men: Days of Future Past final trailer

This is the most standard action movie trailer yet for X-Men: Days of Future Past, but also the best overview of the plot of the actual film (not to be confused with the premise/basic set-up of sending Wolvie back in time in order to blah blah blah).

Pretty cool stuff. The movie finally comes out on May 23, 2014.

Trailer Watch: X-Men: Days of Future Past official trailer 2

Via the official X-Men Movies YouTube channel comes the latest trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, joining the cast of the original X-Men movies with that of X-Men: First Class.

X-Men and X2: X-Men United director Bryan Singer returns to the director’s chair (he also produced X-Men: First Class, but Matthew Vaughn directed that puppy). In this new trailer, it looks like Bryan Singer’s gotten better at action, though some of the effects are kind of goofy. (In all likelihood, the Beast will never look good with practical make-up.) The story and the emotional beats that come with it will be the star, though, and that’s where Singer shines.

What do you think?

Trailer Watch: X-Men: Days of Future Past

Singer has gone back to the X-Well with X-Men: Days of Future Past, which comes out on May 23, 2014. Reuniting a ton of X-Men cast and the X-Men: First Class cast, the film is intended (in part) to fix some of the continuity fuck-ups of the series — I’m looking at you, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: The Last Stand, and while it could just be that I’m a sucker for the Sunshine soundtrack, which underscores most of this trailer, I think this looks pretty solid.

Trailer Watch: Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo trailer

The new trailer for Michel Gondry’s next film has a little more plot and a little less Lumineers than the first one, but it’s beautiful. Keep this one on your radar. Mood Indigo stars Audrey Tautou (Amélie), Romain Duris, and Omar Sy (The Intouchables, X-Men: Days of Future Past).

The film is based on the novel by Boris Vian. Its synopsis follows:

In a world where you can travel around on a pink cloud or literally be swept off an ice-skating rink into a hole, Colin, a wealthy young man and inventor of the cocktail-mixing piano, wants to fall in love. With the help of his cook Nicolas and best friend Chick, he meets Chloe, the incarnation of a Duke Ellington tune. But soon after their wedding, Chloe falls ill. She has a water lily growing in her chest. Ruined by medical expenses, Colin resorts to increasingly desperate methods to save his beloved’s life…

Mood Indigo opened yesterday in France and Belgium. It doesn’t have a US release date yet.
