Flixist Community Discusses: X-Men: Days of Future Past
by Nick Valdez

X-Men: Days of Future Past is the seventh X-Men film. Let that sink in for a moment. From the time the X-Men series began we've had world politics change forever, several global warming scares, and three different incarnations of the Hulk. It's been a wild ride. Days of Future Past is like a time capsule of the 00s, a time where heroes wearing black leather is still cool, things don't need to make sense, and old men are fearsome villains. 

But was it all worth it? Although I thought it was good in my review, did the Flixist Community agree? Thanks to Flixist Community Discusses, we'll discover why DOFP may or may not be successful in what it set out to do! 

Gathered from the comments (from both the opinions post and the review) and Twitter, here's what the Flixist Community thinks of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Spoilers ahead!

Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past photo
Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past
by Nick Valdez

The X-Men movies have a troubled past. Three out of the six previous films have been critically ripped apart. Yet in spite of their dubious quality, each of the X-Films have done extremely well commercially. Basically, no matter how bad we might say the franchise has gotten, there's still a desire to see each one. I know I still watch these movies hoping they'll nail it someday. 

But where does that leave the seventh film in the X-Men series, Days of Future Past? After rebooting the franchise, rebooting Wolverine's origins, changing directors multiple times (and will sadly have to do that once again thanks to recent unfortunate events), and creating a continuity so convoluted no one knows what's going on anymore, Days of Future Past has quite the mountain to climb. 

Luckily for both fans of the X-Men and fans of comic book movies in general, Days of Future Past says "F**k all that" and delivers the best X-Men film to date.

Final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past photo
Final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past
by Nick Valdez

It looks like they've saved the best trailer for last. As X-Men: Days of Future Past gets closer to its release later this May, we finally have a trailer that is as great looking as the first one. We have a good amount of plot without spoiling any of the details (such as Wolverine's mode of time travel), some neat character shout outs (and a good, hard look at Quicksilver in stupid looking googles motion), and the set pieces are full of zazz. Oh and those Sentinels look fantastic. 

Fox may have trouble with its posters, but these trailers really make the X-Men pop. I'm hoping the film can live up to this. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23rd.

And while you're waiting, why not give the Flixist X-Cast a listen? It's good stuff.

Apocalypse showing up in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse? photo
Apocalypse showing up in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse?
by Matthew Razak

UPDATE: According to Twitter, Fox's next X-Men movie is titled X-Men: Apocalypse and is releasing May 27, 2016. No other details have been released at the moment. Original story below.

Are somewhat obscure Tweets a valid news source? It seems like we're getting bigger and bigger stories that way as directors and actors Tweet whatever they want without any care to the fanboy pandemoneum it may cause. Case in point, Zack Snyder's recent Tweet that read: "#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!"

I mean, this one isn't too hard to figure out, cut come on! That's just mean. Snyder is most likely telling us that the next X-Men film will release in 2016 and that Apocalypse will be in it. It's weird, though, that two big announcements (three if you count Snyder possibly confirming himself as director) like this landed in a simple Tweet. Villains are usually especially hidden until closer to the film's completion to help drive up speculation and interest. Wonder if the Fox people are scrambling like mad.

Then again, maybe Snyder is just Tweeting his dream for the next film.
