In early 2010, 20th Century Fox decided to update its X-Men universe with younger versions of the famous superhero. The result was 2011’s X-Men: First Class, which impressed its cast. James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) lead the Marvel blockbuster.
Three years later, the sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters and unites the two existing X-Men universes into one grand time travel story. JENNIFER LAWRENCE returns to play a pivotal role as Mystique. You can watch the film today as it is available on Disney+.
Future and past merge in X-Men universe
X-Men: Days of Future Past adapts the plot of the comic book series of the same name. The story takes place in a dystopian future in which mutants are tortured and imprisoned in concentration camps. The Sentinels rule the earth. Meanwhile, the second plot unfolds in the 1960s, when an attempt is made to prevent this future.
Although X-Men: Days of Future Past was well received by both critics and audiences at the time, 20th Century Fox later decided to release an expanded version of the film, dubbed “The Rogue Cut”. This adds an additional 17 minutes that piece together unused material from the original story and also create an entirely new subplot.
