X-Men: Days of Future Past


xmendaysoffuturepastIn 2023, most mutants have been wiped out by man-made robots called Sentinels; with the help of Shadowcat (Ellen Page), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is sent back in time to 1973 to kill the Sentinel program before it’s born. A sequel to three X-Men movies (The Last Stand, Wolverine and First Class), this ambitious chapter brings Bryan Singer back to the franchise as director and unites two generations as the older mutants try to influence their younger, more irresponsible selves. The result is a dark, sprawling, exciting and handsome comic-book adventure in 3D with clever political touches, a magnificent cast and, unlike many other genre pics, it delivers in the finale as well.

Last word:Ā “This is a story about a bad future, not a bad situation with an individual, but a bad future and how do you go back and change that. So itā€™s a very simple conceit and I pitched it to James Cameron when I was in New Zealand and he put it into physics terms and I wish I could articulate the physics of it, the experimental physics. It deals with the notion that objects and things evolve differently and behave differently when theyā€™re observed and when theyā€™re not observed. So I play with the principle of the travel, in this case itā€™s consciousness that moves into your younger self, and that traveler is the observer and the observer perceives one thing while the rest of the world perceives something else. In this case, Hugh is the observer.” (Singer, Collider)
