^Well that was by different people, so it's not entirely fair to judge DoFP by The Last Stand.
Didn't think I was. All I was saying is that the Phoenix storyline got screwed up about as badly as it could be, and that a DoFP movie that knocks it out of the park would make up for that. The fact that different people were involved is relevant, that's quite true.

That being said, the DoFP trailer looks good. Cautiously optimistic...

Damn, didn't think it was possible, but that actually got me really excited to see an X-Men movie again.

With one teaser trailer, Bryan Singer managed to bring back all the sense of magic and wonder that had been missing from the franchise for quite awhile. Here's hoping the actual movie is able to follow through.

The trailers for The Last Stand and First Class got me excited for those movies, but then I ended up thinking the films themselves were awful...so we'll see.

That was awesome.

The only thing I'd say is we know what that 'awful future' is and why they're trying to change, but to the non-comic fans and general movie-going people seeing that, I don't think they'd have a clue what's going on.
Still, I imagine their curiosity would be peaked though

Fantastic trailer. I think this has the potential to be the best X-Men movie yet.

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

I liked the trailer but I'm worried that I'll set my expectations too high, like I did for the first X-Men movie. With all the bases they plan to hit in this movie, I'm also worried they'll leave something out. Can this movie be as good as it could be, or will it spell doom for the franchise?

As a kid, I read countless numbers of comic books, with X-Men being the most dominant. When the first X-Men movie came out, I broke down every trailer, still, or clip I could find which spoiled much of the movie. I don't wish to do that with DoFP but at the same time I do.

But that's me, conflicted on matters that any sane person would consider moot.

I am neither pleased or displeased by that trailer. I should be excited by what I just saw, but I'm not. I had the same reaction to the Captain America trailer. I think I'm immune to trailer hype. Very interesting.

I didn't think much of the trailer, either, although I really hope the movie is good.

I thought this was one of the most emotional trailers that I've seen in a long time. Agreed with JacksonArcher about the focus on character and the links between characters. I think that was an important choice. It also did a great job of hinting at the plot as well. I think the next trailer will probably be more action oriented. Also Peter Dinklage's Trask sitting at the microphone stand was such a simple image but relayed so much. I believe too that was "Inception" music used as John Ottman hasn't written his score yet.

And Singer said in his Twitter Q&A the other day that the action sequences weren't finished yet, so none could be included.

I thought it was overdone. It looks like the kind of trailer people will be making fun of in 10 years. Nice to see a lot of the old gang back tho.

I don't know anything about this "awful future" so whatever it is will be a surprise for me. 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. I haven't been following this thread so I don't know if that's been talked about already.

Inception probably. It's the new Requiem for a Dream.

Bravo to Bryan Singer for releasing an atypical movie trailer for a superhero film. Nice to see a trailer without a bunch of stuff being destroyed....
