X-Men: Days of Future Past teaser posters ROCK!

x-men days of future past teaser posters

Fresh from the heels of the recently concluded Comic Con, here are a couple of teaser posters of next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past movie, slated for a release in May '14. The movie itself is an adaptation of the classic 1981 X-Men story arc of the same name spanning over 2 single issues of the monthly Uncanny X-Men comic books. I know all this from memory as I remembered vividly reading the TPB sometime in the 90s.
In a nutshell, if memory serves me right, the plot of the comic dealt with the relaunch of the Sentinel programme as a result of the assasination of some Senator in order to restore order and to purge mutants. In a cruel twist of events, the Sentinels turned the table and ruled the US for themselves! And it involved some time travel to the year.....*ready for this??!!*.......2013. Many mutants were killed (or slain as per the iconic comic cover with Wolvie and Kitty Pryde in front of the 'slain/apprehended' poster) and it was left to the few remaining ones to prevent the events to have ever taken place by engaging in some time travel.......ok, you know what, just get the TPB and read it yourselves....you get the picture. Haha.

Anyway, back to the teaser posters above. I think it's a clever mash-up images of Fassbender/McKellen and McAvoy/Stewart resulting in even brilliant teaser posters that more or less hints (to those unfamiliar with the comic story arc) that there will be time travelling involved and we'd get to see both the 'young' and the 'old' versions of the characters in the movie. Brilliant. Simply brilliant. Hope more images/teaser posters pop out after this.
