Storyline

In the future, the mutants and the humans who help them are slaughtered by powerful robots named Sentinels. Professor Xavier, Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, Kitty Pryde, and her friends meet at a monastery in China and Xavier explains that the invincible Sentinels were created using the DNA of Mystique that was captured in 1973 when she tried to assassinate their creator Dr. Bolivar Trask. Xavier tells that their only chance is return to 1973 using Pryde's ability to join Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr to convince Mystique to give up her intention. However, only Wolverine can withstand the damages of the time travel. Will he succeed in stopping Mystique and the Sentinel Program, and save the mutants and their human friends from annihilation?

Trivia

The addition of Evan Peters as Pietro Maximoff, a.k.a. Quicksilver, to the cast sparked wide discussion over the direction of the character, who was also slated to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Quicksilver had been discussed previously as a potential character in both X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and The Avengers (2012), but legal complexities over the license to the character resulted in his omission from both movies. However, in May 2013, Marvel and Fox Studios announced a resolution to the previous legal issues, and that Quicksilver would appear in this movie as well as an Avengers sequel, though under certain parameters: no reference to Quicksilver's membership in the Avengers can be made in an "X-Men" movie, and no allusion to his relations to the X-Men or Magneto (the character's father) can be made in an "Avengers" movie. The rights agreement between Fox and Marvel even goes so far as to stipulate the character cannot be referred to as a "mutant" in any Marvel movie. Additionally, the day after the announcement of Peters' casting, Marvel and Fox entered into a legal standoff over provisions of the rights agreement for the character, including the issue of whether Peters would be allowed to portray Quicksilver in any other movie outside the X-Men film franchise, possibly necessitating a second actor to play Quicksilver in any Marvel movie, resulting in two different versions of the same character appearing in two competing film franchises. Ultimately, Fox and Marvel decided to cast different actors in the part for the "X-Men" and "Avengers" movies, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson taking on the role in the latter sequel, thus preventing any connection between the two franchises and keeping the X-Men confined to a separate universe from those of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Quotes

[first lines]
Professor X: The future: a dark, desolate world. A world of war, suffering, loss on both sides. Mutants, and the humans who dared to help them, fighting an enemy we cannot defeat. Are we destined down this path, destined to destroy ourselves like so many species before us? Or can we evolve fast enough to change ourselves... change our fate? Is the future truly set?

Crazy Credits

SPOILER: There is a scene at the end of the closing credits: a mutant stands in front of a crowd chanting his name, as he telekinetically assembles a pyramid in the air. This leads into X-Men: Apocalypse (2016). See more »

Alternate Versions

In the extended cut, the following scenes are added:
  • There is additional footage of pictures of deceased mutants on a wall and there is extended dialogue, when Wolverine and the other mutants are discussing what can be done by going into the past and changing it.
  • There is an extra scene with Kitty Pryde and Iceman, before she sends Wolverine into the past.
  • The fight that Wolverine has when he wakes up in his past body is longer and grittier.
  • Wolverine gets into a car and tells an old girlfriend to lie low for a few days.
  • The whole sequence inside of the X-Mansion, when Wolverine is talking to Beast and Professor X about the future, is longer, with extra reaction shots and dialogue, from Professor X.
  • There is a small scene, where Iceman talks about going to find Rogue, since Kitty is losing a lot of blood, after being attacked by Wolverine.
  • The conversation that Charles and Raven have in the airport is longer and ends differently. Charles tells the others that he has no idea where Raven is going and they tell Charles that he needs rest.
  • There is a small scene of Beast asking Logan about his fate in the future, though, when he finds out that he is doomed, Logan eases him by saying that the future can still be changed. This scene was altered and came later on, in the film, in the theatrical version.
  • Raven goes to the X-Mansion to stay for the night, when she meets Beast and tells him that she has nowhere to go. The two share an intimate moment, on their own and Mystique tries to coax Beast into being proud of his appearance.
  • Iceman and Magneto go to the future X-Mansion and break in. There, they find Rogue, who has been experimented on. They take her out of the mansion, but Iceman sacrifices his life to save them, as soon as the Sentinels arrive. Magneto takes Rogue with him to Professor X, who fights off another Sentinel, and they escape the ruins of the Mansion. This entire sequence is inter-cut with the scene in the film of the younger Magneto going to retrieve his own helmet. There is even an alternate shot of him looking at the glass case, spotting the small coin that killed Sebastian Shaw, in the last film. In the rest of the 'future' scene, the arm of the Sentinel is stuck to the X-Ship, showing how the Sentinels find the X-Men in the end of the film. In the Theatrical version, it seems that the Sentinels just happen to come across them, later on.
  • Mystique goes into Cerebro and destroys the helmet, so that Charles can't track her down.
  • Rogue arrives with the other X-Men to tell Kitty about what has happened to Iceman and uses this moment of tragedy, for Kitty, to take her powers and carry on helping Wolverine stay in the past. All of the later scenes that take place in the future are now altered, by having Rogue be in Kitty's place, so all shots of Kitty, from this point on, have her sitting beside Rogue or on the floor. In the Theatrical version, all of the shots where Rogue is present, were changed to shots of Kitty and Iceman.
  • There is a short scene of the younger Charles, Beast and Wolverine talking about Mystique's sabotage of Cerebro.
  • There is more dialogue when Charles hides in the crowd, during the unveiling of the Sentinels, of the 1970's.

A new kind of super heroes movies (sorry for English mistakes)
13 May 2014 | by bthivetSee all my reviews

As a well known director one says, to make a great movie, you have to (as a director) believe your movie is the best ever made. In today's blockbuster standards, we do not see that at all. What I see when I watch a Marvel/Disney movie (just for the example), I feel as a spectator that directors want to make an entertainment movie, with an absolutely needs of huge action and explosion scenes, with a crescendo structure ending with a KABOOM (what an illustration^^). That's great, that make good blockbusters – but not great. I had high expectations with this movie, and yet I am not an X-Men fan and Bryan singer disappointed me a lot of times - but the trailer gave me chills and as French, I really wanted to see Omar Sy in a super-production (stupid but true).

Anyway, after seeing it, with 2500 X-Men fan in Paris, I was divided. In fact, I expected something else entirely. There is some plot holes, monotonous parts… However, after thought a lot about it, I have to say that is a masterpiece in super heroes' movies. Why? Because it is very different from what we see today, we are not waiting for a finale with explosions, characters just keep moving so the finale do not overdo it but is still very impressive visually. Plus, this movie is very human paradoxically: it speaks about usual mutants themes, but the very point of the movie is can we change, whether it be the past or our vision of the present. The intelligence of the movie is not to focus on changing the past but on writing the present.

But the most important thing that makes this movie great is that Bryan Singer loves this franchise and more than making a great blockbuster, he wanted to make a great movie relying on the characters. He was convinced of making the best movie ever and even if it is not the case, I felt it, so despite all is defaults, X-MEN DAYS OF THE FUTURE PAST is a great movie, maybe, one of the best super-hero movies ever made.

I advise you to stay till the end of the credits, the scene is just awesome.
