Following Thursday’s Instagram tease of the new trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, we have an exclusive look at more aspects of the highly anticipated new film, which hits theaters May 23. Patrick Stewart maneuvers in his new hover-chair as Professor X, Jennifer Lawrence dons full blue mode (and yellow eyes) as Mystique, and Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage addresses the U.S. president as Bolivar Trask, the creator of mutant-hunting robots called Sentinels.
The new film, inspired by Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s beloved 1981 comic-book storyline of the same name, unites the cast from the original X-Men films (Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, etc.) with those from 2011′s prequel First Class (Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult) in a time-bending adventure. The plot follows Wolverine (Jackman) as he travels from the bleak future to the 1970s, sent by Professor X (Stewart) and Magneto (McKellen) to change certain key events.
Bryan Singer, returning to the franchise after directing the first two X-Men films, says Days of Future Past will take viewers on an emotional ride. “The stakes are high, not just for the world and the future but also the stakes of some of the characters,” says the director. “Clearly there was enormous fragmentation between the characters that happened at the end of First Class. That left the characters on a certain path. This movie will show you where those paths lead.”

Did the condom-industrial complex (or “Big Propha,” as we conspiracy theorists like to call it) secretly finance Contracted? Probably not. But this new horror film from writer-director Eric England (Madison County) does sound like the ultimate in safe-sex commercials. Najarra Townsend (Me and You and Everyone We Know) plays a young woman named Samantha who contracts a gruesome disease after spending the night with a mysterious man (You’re Next screenwriter Simon Barrett) in what is being hyped as “a zombie film like you’ve never imagined.”
Contracted — which co-stars Texas Chainsaw Massacre II actress Caroline Williams and Charley Koontz from Community — is released theatrically Nov. 22 and will also be available on VOD from that date. But you can check out both the film’s new poster above and trailer below.
