The ol' supercut a bunch of random shit together trailer style.
Honestly, this isn't that much different than a Nollywood trailer.
Professor X is a BAD PROPHET

"From Bryan Singer: Remember? The two X-men movies that didn't suck? THAT GUY!"
I seriously can't remember this happening before, where a director's left a series and then returned, especially in Singer's case, where he defected to a DC archetype. It's like Tim Burton going and directing more Batman films after the movie franchise went to shit in the 90s (say what you will about Batman Returns; it was still pretty good compared to what came after it before the Nolan reboot.) I'm very optimistic that this will be awesome.
To be fair though I haven't seen the new(ish) Wolverine movie, which I hear is pretty good.
You mean Bryan Singer, the guy who thought what the Superman franchise needed was for a remake of the Donner version of Superman, except he's a rapist and deadbeat dad, and Lex Luthor's a fucking idiot real estate scam artist? Where Superman solves every problem by lifting something?
Singer isn't all that and a bag of spandex.
BUT all the writers are the people who did First Class PLUS the main guy from Last Stand.
From BRYAN SINGER, the director of those other X-Men movies and uh, we assure you nothing else, please please please don't look him up on the IMDB or anything.
Usual Suspects and Valkyrie were really good. I watched Superman and was bored, but Superman's always been boring to me except for the Allstar stuff, which I doubt a studio would approve of.
Bryan Singer? Maybe he's a good director or something but his "comedy" routines are dog shit.
I thought First Class was easily the best X-Men movie. The first two Singer ones were fine at the time but have aged pretty badly, and they're not even that old.
I really didn't have a problem with any of them, except for Wolverine (the original one) but I was told NOT to see it, because I like Deadpool.
"...and for god's sake, don't remember Jack the Giant Slayer... oh you never saw it. Forget we said anything. So, from the director of X-Men and X2..."
The first movie where every line of dialog is epic enough to be in a trailer for it.
"Do you know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning?"
"Is the future truly set?"
No, since this film's main purpose is to retain the rights to the X-franchise and keep it out of Disney/Marvel's hands. That means it'll get rebooted by DisMar eventually after even more reboots by Fox. I guess that makes it more like the comics, in a way, but it sucks that Patrick Stewart probably won't be up to tackling the role of Professor X when Fox finally gives the IP up.
As for the film itself... meh. I'll wait for it to hit Netflix or whatever.
What's really odd is that this film will have Quicksilver in it, even though he's going to be a major character in the next Avengers movie, so basically for the first time in modern Hollywood history, two actors will be playing the same comic superhero/villain concurrently in different franchises.
It's silly because at the end they will try to get some kind of agreement so everyone appears in the innevitable Infinite Gauntlet movie.
Well, at least Halle Berry's hair looks cool. Punk Storm is best Storm.
Wait, no, it's not even a full on mohawk. Fuck this movie.
Also, Blink looks fuckin' retarded.

Damn, I saw the awkwardly pretentious title and assumed it had to be a fan film.
I'd argue they have all been fan films.
This movie does not delve deep enough into the complex socio-racial issues that underpin this pro integration masterpiece.
Also I am perpetually undersexed man-child who reads comic books written for children.
First Class sucked, and this will suck, too.
Wasn't Bishop the one that went back in time? I guess the studio wants to take no risks here. So, they are sending Wolverine just because.
Originally it was Kitty Pryde. Bishop appears in the future but does not become a regular X-Men character until later on from this storyline.
There have been a few time travel stories involving Wolverine. It helps that they lampshade him being alive in so many eras by saying his healing factor makes him really long-lived or some shit.
If this is like other "OMG grimdark X-future" stories, you'll see his adamantium skeleton in a tank of bubbling liquid in some lab in the ruins of civilization.
Bryan Singer can't direct action to save his life. This is going to blow.

The last trailer had the line, "We need you to hope again."
I think they were talking to the audience.
Hey this one actually turned out pretty good! This coming from someone who didn't like First Class.
Easily the best one since the first two.
Holy shit did Apocalypse suck though.
