A new teaser trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past was released via the X-Men Movies Instagram account this week.
The six-second trailer is a teaser for what will likely be another full two-minute trailer that is scheduled to come out on Monday, Jan. 27. The trailer features several action-packed scenes from the latest X-Men film.
The trailer opens on a shot of Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) tied up and struggling for air in a large body of water, likely suggesting the extent of the mutant-human war.
There is a large focus on Magneto in the teaser, who will be portrayed by both Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen as the character's younger and older selves. Magneto is seen sitting and meditating in a white prison cell in the teaser, a common residency for him.
Jennifer Lawrence makes an appearance as Raven Darkhölme/Mystique in the teaser, and is seen getting very close with young Magneto, though it is not clear what her intentions are. She is featured in another shot, staring blankly ahead as chaos surrounds her.
Older Magneto is seen standing side-by-side with Bobby Drake/Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), implying an intriguing new alliance. Young Magneto is seen again in his trademark helmet outside of prison.
The trailer ends with a shot of young Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) holding his hand up and using his powers.
Other shots in the teaser include a sneak peek at the new mutants and a scene with the government crawling into a secret hideout in the White House.
This teaser suggests that the plot will involve the U.S. government, with the X-Men likely waging war against them out of retaliation for the witch hunt against them.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled for release in theaters on May 23.
