Here Are Some Images Of The New X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Train

If you're not big on train travel, you may be after this! Most films based on comic books begin viral marketing by showcasing images from the movies on trains, and Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past has done the same, with Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy there to endorse the project.

We haven't yet gotten much in the way of marketing for Bryan Singer's next film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, but it seems to have begun, as Virgin Trains has teamed up with Fox to bring us a new X-themed train. Stars Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) as well as James McAvoy (Professor Xavier) have arrived to endorse the train. Here's the catch, No Mutants Allowed.
















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.
X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender,, Ian McKellen, Nicholas Hoult, Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Halle Berry, Adan Canto, Fan Bingbing, Anna Paquin, Evan Peters, Daniel Cudmore, Ellen Page & Booboo Stewart. The film hits theaters May 23, 2014.

Good lord

Dat "Humans Only" seat is a masterpiece of guerilla marketing. This is pretty damn impressive
MrSotoMan - 3/31/2014, 8:24 AM
Wow those racist bastards!
gambgel - 3/31/2014, 8:36 AM
there is a better shot of the whole train on twitter, with 10 mutants or so on it, including Bishop and Beast
MrMartinMarvel - 3/31/2014, 8:37 AM
If I could only use one word to describe this, that word would be, impressive.
StarYeezus - 3/31/2014, 8:39 AM
The marketing team is certainly not [frick]ing around. I'm impressed.
JoeMomma29 - 3/31/2014, 8:40 AM
This is original and pretty impressive.
MsDarkPhoenix - 3/31/2014, 8:41 AM
Is Quicksilver on the train too?? :P

Just kidding!! Actually, I'm impressed!!! This is great!! And Wolvie and X are so badass, breaking the rules and stuff :P
SuperCat - 3/31/2014, 8:41 AM
Damn, that's a pimped out train. Nice!

@SuperCat

Where'd you get that footage of Quicksilver??
Batmaniac - 3/31/2014, 8:45 AM
That's pretty cool.
SuperCat - 3/31/2014, 8:50 AM
LOL @ StarYeezusTheNeonKid

That's f*cked up!

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes > Xmen: Days of Future Past
sKeemAn - 3/31/2014, 8:52 AM
That is some awesome marketing. They shouldhave some mutant only seats as well.
MercwithMouth - 3/31/2014, 8:54 AM
Sweet.

I do have to argue that we've seen ALOT of marketing for DOFP. Hell, when was the last time a movie released 25 magazine covers in one day? There also been a lot of social media marketing, the only thing that was lacking was footage. And the way everyone whines about seeing too much TASM2 Footage, isn't that what you want?
MrCBM56 - 3/31/2014, 8:55 AM
Really cool.
Lawliet - 3/31/2014, 8:56 AM
THAT BLINK IS [frick]ING HOT! NEXT TO JENNIFER LAWRENCE!
Enphlieuwince - 3/31/2014, 8:58 AM
Not bad. Not bad at all... FOX is coming out the gate strong with this one.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/31/2014, 9:07 AM
This looks really cool. Way to get inventive with marketing Fox. Sony just throws like ten trailers at you with Spidey 2. Excited for what may be the greatest cbm teamup film ever!
ATrueHero1987 - 3/31/2014, 9:10 AM
Neat!!
IM53 - 3/31/2014, 9:13 AM
I wasn't impressed at all until trailer 2. I'm intrigued but the jury is still out.
ButthurtKurvos - 3/31/2014, 9:14 AM
Blink, Mystique, Kitty and Storm should all star in the mutant version of "The L Word". Add me into the mix as well.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/31/2014, 9:17 AM
J Law looks done as hell!!!! Blink looks hot as well
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/31/2014, 9:17 AM
Fine as hell i meant
Nomis - 3/31/2014, 9:18 AM
As much as I hate these "X-Men" movies, gotta admit, that's pretty clever marketing.

And the "Human Only" seating actually pay homage to the comic book source material!!!!! :O
ElDarkside - 3/31/2014, 9:19 AM
I agree with @merkwithmouth

The marketing is unique with this movie and I love that were not getting 5 trailers.

It's important that people keep talking about this movie and releasing little nuggets here and there, ie. 25 covers or 6 second vids, etc. is making that happen without giving too much away.

I also love the bent bullet stuff with Magneto and the viral site showing videos before the movie even starts, especially important to see that boliver trask is a super smart individual and not to be messed with. (And we have hardly seen him in trailers, if at all)

Gawd I want to see this movie now dammit

Reminds me of Heroes where Hiro Nakamura time travels on a train.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/31/2014, 9:51 AM
@ChereyBomb haha going down...in history

Couldn't agree anymore @ElDarkside and @Merc
CherryBomb - 3/31/2014, 10:06 AM
So someone deleted my post because it had two women kissing.
I hate the homophobia of this site.
Destined - 3/31/2014, 10:08 AM
Nice promo for them.
pointman - 3/31/2014, 10:26 AM
Look at how.............jackman towers over him......................
NeoBaggins - 3/31/2014, 10:30 AM
This is beyond dope. I'm tempted to express how I'd like to ride that train, but there will be no easy set-ups for computer comedians.
nowtheresaBATman - 3/31/2014, 11:11 AM
@cherry
Homophobia might not of been the reason...some of the fanboys on this site are still afraid of either catching cooties or that change that happens in their pants from just looking at stuff like that.
CherryBomb - 3/31/2014, 11:13 AM
@nowtheresabatman

Haha probably.
It's just ridiculous how we can have floods of highly sexualised images of women on here. I post a TV poster which is approved to be appropriate for advertising of women kissing and it gets deleted.
