'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Final Trailer Released: All Of Your
"In the future, do I make it?" Asks Nicholas Hoult's Beast. "No," Hugh Jackman's Wolverine simply replies.

It's cliché, but that stakes really couldn't be any higher for the X-Men in the final trailer for Days of Future Past before its release on May 23. With Sentinels killing mutants and humans alike, Wolverine's mind is sent back to his past self so he can convince Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) to work with Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and prevent a dystopian future from happening.

As revealed in the new trailer (to the tune of Led Zeppelin's Kashmir), Wolverine's first step is to rec...
