'X-Men: Days of Future Past' (May 23)
Bryan Singer, director of the first two X-Men epics, returns – with a $200 million budget – to direct the seventh and most elaborate film in the franchise. Days of Future Past unites Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) with their younger selves (James McAvoy as X and Michael Fassbender as Magneto) from 2011's underrated X-Men: First Class. The gang's all here, including Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), who must prevent the blue-skinned Mystique (Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence) from killing the inventor of an army of killer robots, Bolivar Trask — who's played by Game of Thrones MVP Peter Dinklage. I'm sold.
