Hands up if you’re excited about X-Men Days of Future Past…because I am, and as if to fuel the already excited X-fans who caught a glimpse of the instagram teaser last week, the release of the first full-length trailer couldn’t have come at a better time. It features all the favourites – Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Shadowcat (Ellen Page), Beast (Nicolas Hoult), Magneto and Prof X (young and old – Fassbender, McAvoy, McKellen & Stewart), and that’s just naming a few of them – the full cast list is really something special.

It might be the seventh outing into the world of mutants and their X-Men counterparts, but this has a whole other feel to it. It feels darker, sadder, more important somehow, and that’s just what we got from 2 minutes and 18 seconds. Topped off with John Murphy’s epic Adagio In D Minor accompaniment, this has got to be one of my favourite trailers of 2013 so far.

Enjoy these visuals becasue Days of Future Past isn’t out until May next year. Yawn.
