Hey. How are you? Me? I’m good. Just sitting here on a train, heading home from a few weeks vacation at my girlfriends place… but I’m heading home now and the amount of postage will increase, I promise!
So the latest trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past is upon us and right off the bat, I have to say that they are continuing strong with “doing things right”. Ever since the first we heard about it involving both the “old and the new” crew of mutans, the hype have been slowly growing to extreme proportions and nothing.. I repeat, Nothing, seems to point on any sort of letdown. This is one film that looks to deliver exactly what it promises and I for one, am getting really excited to see it.
I’m not going to delve into that whole “rip it apart and look at all its details”-thing that everyone seems to be doing, rather than just give you some random thoughts I have on it… and some of those thoughts are as follows;
The narrative – Beautifully done, with a magnificent Patrick Stewart voice-over. It might be the nerd in me talking, but hey.. the mans voice is phenomenal!
The music – Once again, they’ve done a great job choosing the soundtrack for the trailer. Will it be as good in the final product? We’ll just have to wait and see… but I highly doubt it!
The FX – we’re treated with glimpses on what one would argue is most of the mutants involved in the story and with that, some of the things they can do… and it looks awesome! No need to improve for the films release.
We are also treated with what looks to be a dramatic death-scene, and this new footage along with tons of rumors about who will be in it and so on… could this be the last we’ll see of Storm? Well, at least the Hally Berry-version, I’m sure.
Oh, that’s right, I almost forgot… we’ve been given the sweet delight of a new poster as well. Nothing spectacular, a lot of mutant characters cropped together in a pile at the center and the same template as most of the action-sighted films today. Looks cool though, I can’t lie… but that’s mostly because we have both Xaviers in it!
