New 'Days of Future Past' Footage Debuts on Instagram

X-Men: Days of Future Past one sheet - P 2013
Ahead of the vague promise of "surprises" next week, Fox has released nine seconds of new footage from this summer's mutant mashup movie.

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.
