With mutants on the edge of extinction due to their systematic elimination by the Sentinel program, long-time enemies Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) realize the only way forward for their survival is to unite themselves in the past. The man to convince their younger selves (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, respectively) this must happen is fan favorite and all around bad-ass Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). As the first trailer and now this second trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past clearly shows us is this task is easier said than done. But explaining the future situation to be dire to those with wounds so fresh should add a nice emotional layer to the pyrotechnics of this sequel (a lot of new faces are expected to make an appearance and an exit). Hopefully, the alteration of the timeline through time travel stays true to the story though — too often it opens glaring inconsistencies in previous films. You won’t find any issues in the embedded trailer, however, so check it out and enjoy!
