Yep great trailer - looking forward to this. I must admit I wanted them to do a direct sequel to first class with the new cast - but this trailer does make it look promising...

If it's a Marvel film - how come it's not part of the phase 1 / phase 2 stuff??

Bryan Singer is an awful film-maker, sadly this film is going to have some great trailers but ultimately end up being a very poor or mediocre film.

You can't replace a quality director like Matthew Vaughan to him, big loss!

Perhaps a reference to the Moody Blues concept album Days Of Future Passed

Because the rights to the 'X-men' part of the marvel universe were sold off before Marvel got their act together to create their 'shared' universe. The same with both Spiderman and Fantastic Four, which the rights are owned by different studios.

The trailer is awful with a ripped off soundtrack to boot. I can see this being a massive flop at the box office next year.

does look good! , but I would have liked a straight forward sequel to FC, I kind of think that xmen 1-3 and the 2 wolverine films have had their time

Yep, I agree.. but maybe the franchise was just too limiting having to 'fill in' between the two sets of films. This way they can bring back the 'big guns' in terms of characters, rather than depending on second string mutants.

The trailer was fine and gave an emotional edge to it highlighting the seriousness of what is/was happening.

The soundtrack is likely not finished or in the early stages of being done.

This will not be a massive flop when it's released. Trust me.

Box office figures..

2000 X-Men: $157m
2003 X2: $214m
2006 X-Men Last Stand: $234m
2009 X-Men Origins Wolverine: $179m
2011 X-Men First Class: $146m
2013 The Wolverine: $132m (potentially more to make when bluray releases)

First Class performed badly when you consider a film just about Wolverine has pulled in almost as much money. So it's perhaps understandable that they decided to merge the two worlds.. in particular giving a key role to Hugh Jackman, who let's face it is the biggest star of the franchise.

Interesting that the entire series isn't that 'big' in terms of box office.

Compared with
Spiderman: $800m
Iron Man:$585m
Man of Steel:$662m
Captain America:$368m
Thor:$449m

and the sequels made even more...

Hell even Daredevil made $179m...and that's seen as one of the worst 'modern' superhero films.

Love Storm's new look!

Glad to see Shadowcat, Rogue and Iceman are in this! Gutted about no Cyclops though.

Can't wait!

I was kinda the same. It started off well climaxing at the ancient ruin place for me. Very somber too (which is fine, just not what i was expecting).

Me too. I hope it means his powers are going to be near maxium potential, if he is going to be fighting alongside Magneto.

You're comparing US grosses for the X-Men movies against worldwide grosses for the other Marvel/DC movies.

The worldwide totals are:

2000 X-Men: $297m
2003 X2: $407m
2006 X-Men Last Stand: $459m
2009 X-Men Origins Wolverine: $374m
2011 X-Men First Class: $355m
2013 The Wolverine: $407m (and counting)

Given that the budgets for the more recent X-Men movies have been less than your typical Marvel Studios movie they have been great earners for Fox.

The worldwide appeal of Jackman paired with crossing over the casts of the previous movies are gonna make DOFP the highest grossing film of the year next year in my view. That great trailer only strengthens that opinion for me!

Ah yes..I see oops.

But I disagree it's going to make the highest grossing film next year!

Spiderman 2, Transformers, The last Hobbit, Hunger Games + many others will take more..

Ripped off soundtrack? How many teasers have the actual soundtrack from the film in them? Example; Man of Steel's teaser used music from Lord of the Rings. Its common practice, being that the soundtrack won't be complete at this point.

I hope Shadowcat isn't going to be sidelined and this be another Wolverine movie, as she had a big role in the comic

The soundtrack sounds as if it's from Sunshine as they've obviously not completed it. At least we didn't get the Inception horns....

...Fast 7, 'Train Your Dragon 2, Godzilla, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes...'tis a packed schedule.

For DoFP to perform the way some of these obviously will it'll need to click far beyond its core fanbase. The Jackman/Lawrence factor will doubtlessly be in its favour, but I imagine it'll simply boil down to the film itself. No-one except the most fervent of fanboys expected Avengers Assemble to do the kind of business it did, but its colourful, accessible, fizzy fun vibe made it just as suitable for the casual audience, who are more often than not the deciding factor in any box-office giant.

It's not hard to see DoFP doing better than any other X-men iteration so far - it's a very steady, successful franchise - but a jump into the super-league? They thought that about Star Trek Into Darkness...

Jennifer Lawrence is more popular now than ever, I'm sure her Hunger Game crowd will make it gross higher. We have Magneto and Prof X back, so this brings in some of the older folks.

Bringing back Wolverine is another huge plus, I can see this film doing around $800 million worldwide or more now.

Star Trek doesn't appeal to kids, this does.

I barely remember seeing as many teens coming to see Star Trek 2 this year, when compared to End Games where the majority of the audience are under 18's.
