A final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, starring Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence, has been released. It is reported that X-Men: Days of Future Past is the second-most expensive film ever produced by the 201th Century Fox after Avatar with the budget of $225 million.
The latest chapter in the Marvel comics franchise is directed by Bryan Singer, and sees characters from the original film trilogy joining forces with their younger selves. In Days of Future Past, the X-Men ensemble battles for the survival of the species across two time periods, fighting to change a major historical event in order to save the future.
James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender will reprise their roles as Charles Xavier and Magneto from X-Men: First Class, and will be joined by Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan, who play the characters in the present day. Hugh Jackman once again takes the role of Wolverine, who is the only X-Man capable of travelling through time. Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry and Anna Paquin will also be returning to the franchise, while Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage will join as villainous scientist Bolivar Trask.
