New X-Men Trailer Goes Back to the Future

Building off a tease in the closing moments of last summer's The Wolverine, Twentieth Century Fox is getting ready to return its entire brigade of Marvel mutants to the screen in next June's X-Men: Days of Future Past, which also brings director Bryan Singer back to the director's chair after more than a decade away. The time-tripping tale, starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender, uses the comics' classic "post-apocalyptic future" storyline of the same name as a means to bring the together the original trilogy's cast with their younger First Class-era selves. Our first look at the film (which also brings Halle Berry, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and others back into the fold) arrived today via the teaser trailer from Fox. Given that this is just a teaser, the focus seems more on showing the characters and scope rather than the specifics of the plot. And on that score, consider me sufficiently teased.
