First 10 Minutes Of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Screens At CinemaCon
Fox unveiled a lengthy action sequence (which makes up about the first 10 minutes of the movie) from Bryan Singer's Days Of Future Past at CinemaCon this evening, and we have a detailed description of it for you after the jump. Be warned: Major SPOILERS ahead!
Some descriptions of the X-Men: Days Of Future Past footage Fox screened at CinemaCon today are coming in, and as usual Badass Digest provide the most detailed breakdown. The action sequence involves the Sentinel attack on the future mutant's base, and Kitty's attempt to zap Bishop's mind into the past while her teammates sacrifice themselves to buy her time. Yes, sounds very much like Bishop will also play a part in the '70s-set portion of the movie along with Wolverine. Anyway, here's the description.
"The sequence was in the future, and Sentinels are dispatched to find and kill mutants living underground. Their delivery system (and the world) is reminiscent of The Matrix, but once the Sentinels - who can adapt to any situation and change their form - drill into the secret base it gets real good. The mutants on hand: Sunspot, Iceman, Bishop, Kitty Pryde, Blink and Warpath. Kitty Pryde and Bishop immediately run off while the other X-Men keep the semi-liquid metal robots busy. There are good action beats using the characters’ powers, especially Blink, whose portals allow Warpath to do some really fun run and jumps onto the Sentinels. Iceman glides around on an ice slide, and Sunspot becomes a being of lava and fire as he blasts robots. Kitty and Bishop (who uses Sunspot’s fire to charge his big dumb gun) are running off to a closet someplace. Bishop lays down and Kitty starts massaging his temples, and it becomes clear that she’s sending his consciousness back in time. The others are buying them minutes… with their lives. A Sentinel snaps Sunspot’s neck. Iceman has his head popped off and is crushed underfoot. Blink gets skewered. Warpath gets blasted to smithereens. But it was worth it! As the Sentinel breaks into the closet, blasting fire, Kitty looks up and says, “Too late, asshole!” and everything disappears. The past has been changed."
Sounds pretty good; but It'll be very interesting to see how this fits in with what we already know from the story. Thoughts?
