New 'Days of Future Past' Footage Debuts on Instagram
Teasing what is being described as "a full day of X-Men surprises" on Monday, a new nine-second mini-trailer for this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past has made its debut online, promising a drowning Wolverine and scowling Professor Xavier.
The clip appeared on the official X-Men movies Instagram account, accompanied by the caption "A full day of #XMen surprises is just around the corner. Follow along on Twitter at @EmpireMagazine and @XMenMovies to see exclusive reveals on January 27th." What kind of surprises we can expect are unclear -- another trailer? More character reveals for Days of Future Past? Or, perhaps, more information about the recently announced X-Men: Apocalypse?
For now, there are nine seconds of fast-cut action from Days of Future Past to study. Why is Wolverine in a straitjacket? Is that Warpath with the knives? What's going on with Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique and Michael Fassbender's Magneto? All -- or, more likely, some -- will be revealed on Monday.
