Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

I still think a movie like this works sort of like the Expendables - having all the names on it is a bigger draw than just having the one name.

Or, more topical, it would have been like having Avengers posters that only mention Robert Downey Jr. (or even more specifically, having a poster with Chris Evans or Samuel L. Jackson that says "Robert Downey Jr.).

I think it will be the highest grossing of the franchise. The buzz for this film is enormous.

I agree. I just wonder how "enormous" it will be. Especially since no previous X-Men film has earned past $250 million domestically at the box office.

Which is the budget of this one, so it'd better make a bit more than that.

^^^^
Worldwide is what really matters most. It's not 1995 anymore.
It should strive to match it's budget though, I'd agree to that.

I think the poster with Hugh Jackman's name over the Magnetos might have been a mistake. I saw the same poster over at Coming Soon, and it didn't have any names on it at all.

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

Now there is another viral marketing website for the film: http://www.25moments.com/

Some minor spoilers there (such as a couple of characters that are mentioned as being dead by the point of the post-apocalyptic future -
). It also definitively places The Last Stand in 2006 and indicates that the future events occurring in at least
if not later.

I'm eager to see this film but that scene played more like a video game cut scene.

That scene was pretty cool. I loved seeing Bobby use his ice slide, it's finally starting to look like an X-Men movie should

That was a pretty exciting clip.

Apparently a new trailer is coming on Tuesday.

I was just thinking today that it's been nearly 14 years since X-Men came out. Since then, we've had two actors play Superman (3 if you count Tom Welling), Ben Affleck has become the second actor to be cast as Batman since then, we're on the second iteration of Spider-man since 2001, there have been two different takes on the Hulk (and I'm being generous and counting the Norton/Ruffalo incarnation as one), two Punishers, 2 Catwomen, 2 Blades (including the tv show, though the first Blade movie predated X-Men) and the second modern incarnation of the Fantastic Four has gone into production. Yet the core cast of the first X-Men movie are returning to reprise their roles. How cool is that?

Its very, very cool!

I think it will make this film stronger. Days of Future Past has more weight with having the future portrayed with actors with a lot of history with the characters.
