The crew at Screen Junkies released their newest video in their “Honest Trailer” series, this time taking on X-Men: Days of Future Past. If you haven’t seen the film, time travel is used to prevent deaths of mutants, even though you see the deaths happen, but it’s ok because they went back in the past and changed the future days. Hence, Days of Future Past.
Because time traveling is involved, and Professor Xavier sends Logan back to warn younger Professor Xavier about the future, younger Professor doesn’t believe him, Logan loses patience while present-day Logan stabs people unconsciously while back-in-time Logan tries to round up Mystique…oh no I’ve gone cross-eyed. Let’s just say it would’ve been interesting to see Logan run into himself a la Back to the Future. Screen Junkies make good points that this is basically Terminator, but with Mutants, and that this film essentially wipes out every other X-Men movie before it. Hollywood magic!
