TRAILER: X-Men Days of Future Past

By Dave Bouressa

What happens when you take X-Men and mix it with just a dash of Terminator? Why, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', that's what!.The official trailer for Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' has officially hit the internet. Check it out.

After the success of 'X-Men: First Class', this film is sure to be a hit, especially when you have Wolverine jumping from Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, to James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. It will be nice to get some incredible Marvel films outside of the 'Avengers' territory.

However, the one thing to drive me nuts about this trailer is the music. It is unbearable when movie trailers use an overused and cliche soundtrack from another film-especially if it is a different composer. At 1:25 in the trailer, the music is entitled 'Journey to the Line', composed by Hanz Zimmer from the film 'The Thin Red Line" (Start at 4:20). If you are not going to put in the effort to have some of your own score be included into your own trailer, it certainly does not speak volume (no pun intended) to your own film's composer. It is like having a McDonalds commercial, but they didn't have confidence in the Big Mac, so they snuck a Whopper in there, nobody will notice, right?

'X-Men: Days of Future Past" hits theaters May 23, 2014.
