If you enjoy sensational, thrilling, action-packed time travel movies, then X-Men: Days Of Future Past will be the film for you. Director Bryan Singer shows off his exceptional talent as he brings together a balance of humor, action, and serious drama, according to Mirror.co.uk. And it all starts right from the X-Men’s hair-raising opening scene.
X-Men: Days Of Future Past moviegoers will be gripping their seats as they see the earth crumbling in total devastation due to robots called Sentinels. It is up to the claw-bearing hero, Wolverine, to travel back in time and strategically arrange for Magneto and Professor X to form an alliance in order to save the future of the earth in perfect X-Men style. And in 3-D, of course.
As with any time travel movie, X Men: Days Of Future Past had to develop younger and older versions of characters. James McAvoy plays the younger version of Patrick Stewart’s character Professor X. The 73-year-old actor confessed to the New York Daily News that it seemed like a flashback. And when he watched X Men: Days Of Future Past, he said as he watched McAvoy, “I felt as if I were looking at myself on screen.”
Many details were carefully designed and followed in order to make the time travel in X Men: Days Of Future Past seem realistic. According to NewsDay.com, working on getting the actors to match vocally was a huge challenge. Both Stewart and McAvoy alternated their British and Scottish accents to blend as both the younger and older characters.
X Men: Days Of Future Past will be the blockbuster summer sensation. Business Insider states, “Currently the movie (‘X Men: Days Of Future Past’) is sitting at 94 percent on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. While we still have a week before its release, that’s better than ‘Godzilla’ at 74 percent and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ which sits at 53 percent.”
