New "X-Men: Days of Future Past" Trailer Lands



    Get ready for more Mystique--and by that, we mean lots of Jennifer Lawrence's shapeshifting character in "X-Men: Days of Future Past"!

    The second trailer for the star-studded, Bryan Singer-directed movie hit the web Monday, and it's got all the J.Law, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender you could hope for!

    The action flick and sure-to-be blockbuster gives shows mutants--past and present---trying to fight Sentinels from overtaking the world. In an interview with Collider, the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director said this film "actually delves into being a time travel movie."

    "Once I took on that and figured out a methodology for it, I embraced the fact that like 'Time Machine,' 'Back to the Future,' 'Terminator,' 'Looper,' I'm now in that world or trench, but it's a very fun opportunity to see maybe this is a future," Singer said. "When you see the X-Men in this future, it's almost like you start off and it's sort of a dreary 'maybe' future, it's one you hope didn't happen, maybe it won't happen, and that's kind of what it feels like. So I went full out, that's why it's very dark and they're all militant and I wanted to make sure they all looked like they'd been fighting a war for ten years."

    "X-Men: Days of Future Past" hits theaters May 23.
