'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Unleashes a 'Very Brady' Trailer Tease (Video)

The Instagram video is the latest creative effort from studios to tease upcoming trailers

A new “X-Men: Days of Future Past” trailer teaser makes 20th Century Fox's follow up to “X-Men: First Class” look like “A Very Brady Sequel.”

The Instagram post (below) features nine characters in nine boxes — accompanied with footage of them in action — to tease the next trailer for the May 23 release directed by Bryan Singer.

The sixth installment of the Fox franchise, based on the Marvel comics, bridges the gap between the first three “X-Men” movies and “First Class,” the prequel directed by Matthew Vaughn. “Past” also serves as a link to James Mangold‘s 2013 hit, “The Wolverine,” which was one of the first studio tentpoles to take advantage of social media video-sharing services to release mini-previews ahead of the trailers audiences see in theaters.

With the world in flames after giant robotic mutant eradicators called Sentinels wage war with mutant kind, Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back in time to convince the younger versions of themselves to stop the Sentinels before it's too late.

“Days of Future Past” welcomes Singer back to the director's chair, who hasn't helmed an “X-Men” movie since 2003's “X2.”

Joining Singer are new cast members including Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) as Sentinels creator Bolivar Trask, Omar Sy (“The Intouchables”) as time traveler Bishop, Chinese actress Bingbing Fan as Blink, and Evan Peters (“American Horror Story”) as Quicksilver.

Here's the teaser:

    DoFP is the 7th, not the 6th. Xmen 1-3, XMen Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine, XMen: First Class.

    I know people who write articles are typically Communications/English majors and have difficulty with Mathematics, but even my 3 year old can count to seven.

      That was way harsh Tai.

    • mrbrockpeters

      Too bad. My dog can count to ten.

      U mad bro ?

  • Darcy

    What is up with Beast? He looks like a blue Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy). Hey wait, Ron Perlman actually played a Beast (Beauty and the Beast tv show). Wow, six degrees of separation.

    • Victor

      and Hellboy

    In the same amount of time they could have given us a snippet of a battle with a Sentinel, and it would have been 10x more effective than all the teaser trailers and the 25 variant covers for Empire magazine. I'll wait for word-of-mouth reviews on this before I decide to see it or not.

  • Dr Truth

    Another superhero flick? Enough already

    • donald

      I'm sure that they will take your request into consideration as they make another billion grossing movie

  • Eli G.

    why is wolverine in the middle…if it's the x-men, then xavier must be in the middle.

  • mrbrockpeters

    Here's the story, of a man named Xavier,
    Who was busy with some mutants of his own,
    All of them had super powers, like their professor,
    The youngest wore gloves.

    Is that Jonah Hill playing Beast ?

    When did Jonah Hill get cast in this ?

  • Carl Forrest

    Middle of left column looks like Ron Burgundy
