Old meets new in first posters for X-Men: Days Of Future Past

The first official posters have arrived online for X-Men: Days Of Future Past , and we’re happy to say that they’re brilliant.

Given just how terrible the photoshopping on the promotional one-sheets for X-Men: First Class was, we were a little wary of anything attempting to combine the old and the new, but these new efforts really do hit the spot.

The two new posters combine Xavier and Magneto’s older and younger selves, giving us James McAvoy peering out of Patrick Stewart’s head, and Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen making a rather convincing hybrid.

The new film will see the X-Men forced to avert a terrible future in which mutantkind has been almost entirely eradicated, with the survivors slung into nightmarish concentration camps.

Directed by Bryan Singer and co-starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 22 May 2014.
