So it’s been quite the hiatus on my blog. The reason, laziness, busy at work and lack of creativeness has kept me silent. I’ll try and make more of an effort to post stuff at least once a week. I know friends and family want something to do on their down time.
Anyways, this is kinda of old news, but I literally just saw a rough cut of the X-Men First Class sequels trailer, and to say the least, it looks pretty epic. Whats great is that it combines the original cast with the new one, an adaptation of the story arc with the same name. Days of Future Past will involve Sentinels, time travel and a dystopia future where mutants are hunted down and kept in camps. So here’s the description of what I’ve seen.
“Soft piano music plays”
Professor X’s voice (Patrick Stewart) – Whats the last thing you remember?
“Flashing quick scenes of a dark future with Wolverine and Storm”
Professor X’s voice (Patrick Stewart) – I just had a glimpse into the past”
“More quick scenes of Iceman, Rogue and Shadowcat”
Professor X’s voice (Patrick Stewart) – You’re going to have to do something for me what I once did for you
“Scenes of the X-Mansion, Prof X infront of the door leading into Cerebro, small children running in the X-Mansion”
Magneto’s voice (Ian McKellan) – You will need me as well
“Quick glimpses of Bishop, Warpath, Forge, Blink… possibly the futures Brotherhood of mutants”
“Cuts to a scene with Storm, Wolverine, Colossus, and Iceman… looks like they are entering a dark doorway”
Magneto’s voice (Ian McKellan) – Side by side, to finally end this war, before it ever begins
“Cuts to a scene with Wolverine standing with Prof.X over a dark landscape”
Wolverine voice (Hugh Jackman) – So, I wake up in my younger body, and then what?
Professor X’s voice (Patrick Stewart) – Find me, convince me of all this
“Scene of a young Prof X scanning his eye on Cerebro’s doorway”
Magneto’s voice (Ian McKellan) – It’s going to take the two of us
Wolverine’s voice (Hugh Jackman) – Alright, so where do I find you?
“Scene showing Michael Fassbender holding a gun, slowly gripping it tighter at someone”
Magneto’s voice (Ian McKellan) – I’m down a different path, a darker path
“Quick scene showing Mystique’s face, with a tear running down her face”
Professor X’s voice (Patrick Stewart) – Logan, I was a very different man
“Scene showing a young professor entering Cerebro, blowing dust of the helmet”
Professor X’s voice (Patrick Stewart) – Lead me, guide me, be patient with me
“Scene showing a young Professor X reading Wolverines mind”
Wolverines voice (Hugh Jackman) – Patience was never my strongest suit
“Scene of Wolverine screaming, with bright lights on either side of his body, getting so bright you can’t see his face anymore…. dark future scene with a building under attack and the X-Men are ducking for cover. Michael Fassbender levitating with a sinister smile…. quick scenes of a barricade giving way with angry protestors, a human form Mystique, a secret room opening up in the white house with armed guards leading the President into…. three men unloading their guns on Wolverine, Wolverine staring back at them with the bullet holes healing quickly. Very quick scenes of more angry protestors running in the streets with Mystique walking amongst them, changing her form to several different people. Richard Nixon looking up at a monitor, Beast holding Magneto’s body under water, trying to drown him.
The final shot is young Xavier encountering old Xavier, looking each other dead in the eye, and old Xavier says the following…..
“Please. We need you to hope again”
Then sequels title comes up: “Days of Future Past.”
