Wolverine travels through time in 1st X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST - Official Trailer (2014)

It’s finally here! The first trailer for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has arrived, and it finds everyone’s favorite mutant heading back in time to save the world.

Despite the fairly convoluted pitch — with Logan (Hugh Jackman) sent back in time to stop a war before it begins, while simultaneously tying together the modern-day and prequel-era First Class casts — it seems to work.

The first thing that stands out is Singer's vision, and it's easy to see he's back in the director’s chair. This footage and cut definitely showcase his trademark bombast. Even without Professor X’s (Patrick Stewart) voiceover, you just feel the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been.

Highlights? Young Beast looks positively awesome, “Patience isn’t my strongest suit” is a great line, and there definitely looks to be some berserker snikt-ing to go around for all you Wolverine fans.

The film stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin and Peter Dinklage. Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think.

The X-Men sequel is set to open May 23, 2014.
