"Gravity" just used it for their TV spots. It's from the movie "Sunshine"

Well, there was a naked blue chick doing acrobatics...that has to count for something.

Based on your post and what I saw, I'm guessing that the future version of the characters are in a timeline different from the one we saw in the other X-men movies.
Not necessarily...it could be that the present of the continuity that the earlier films were set in has gone horribly wrong, and they're backtracking its historical cause to an earlier point. Indeed, they went horribly wrong for us several years ago. This could be their way of doing a reboot so that the new cast is free to explore their own stories into the present timeframe.

I usually reserve judgement for the final product (or at least I try to), but this trailer is pure awesome and it's not even the main one.
It's the bits'n'pieces-they-have-in-the-can-early-trailer only.

makes me want to wake up in my older body in may next year and watch the movie now.

Ahhhh so excited for this movie!

Minor wish: the "present"/future characters (the old cast) gets a lot of screen time; Kitty especially since she was so integral to the original story but won't be as much here.

Wow, the trailer looks great. Remaining cautiously optimistic... but very optimistic nonetheless.

Yeah, it looks good. Wolverine as the vehicle for time travel, though, bothers me because he won't get destroyed by a Sentinel.

I nearly cried like a little pussy watching that trailer. With the X-flicks there are some good ones. Some not so good ones. And some godawful ones. This is gonna be a great one! Mutant and proud muthafucka! Bring on 2014!

Maybe Morph will show up and get destroyed by a Sentinel. Then Wolverine can yell, "Moooooooorpphhh!!!!"

The trailer says that everything depends on Wolverine's sensitivity, which in past movies translates to emo. Further, it was jamming in Wolverine in place of Scott that screwed up the Phoenix on screen so far. Is this really promising?

I really liked the trailer, and I appreciated the atypical tone, even if it was the result of not having the flashier effects done yet. The first two X-Men movies and First Class are still among my very favorite superhero movies. Hopefully this will be the best yet and be a great bridge between the two series.

Kitty as the time traveler doesn't work anymore due to the film timeline. Logan is the logical choice, it's not just Wolverine for Wolverine's sake.

I don't understand why there is so much resistance to this notion.
