X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST the Opening Battle Clip


X-Men: Days of Future Past debuted the opening battle clip during the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday and you can watch it below.

In the video, we see Shadowcat, Colossus and Iceman join new franchise mutants Warpath, Blink, Bishop, and Sunspot against future Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class, in an epic battle that must change the past — to save our future.

It’s particularly cool to see Blink’s portals, Iceman’s ice-surfing, Shadowcat’s phasing and Bishop’s energy absorption.

The Bryan Singer‘s X-Men sequel stars Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Evan Jonigkeit.

Fox/Marvel’s X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23.

Watch a clip which Ellen Page presented at Nokia Theatre in LA (above) and just imagine the kind of mutant-powered awesomeness that ensues after the clip ends.
