Two More Mediocre Posters for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
Fox has released two more character posters for their upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. These feature Colossus and Blick, and Iceman and Kitty Pryde, respectively. Like the posters last week, one character is in profile, the other is standing behind them, looking directly at the viewer. And like the posters last week, it appears to be sunset. Look, I appreciate that they’ve kept a comparatively tight lid on footage from the movie, as it’s nice to have at least a few surprises in the theater, but they aren’t exactly crushing it with the poster designs.
And here’s the thing: I am actually wicked excited for this movie. I like the young cast, it’ll be interesting to see them all, um, “interacting” with the old cast, and it’s always great to see Hugh Jackman do his Wolverine thing. I would be quite content if Bryan Singer were to just make X-Men movies until he dies, far, far in the future. But these posters are doing nothing for me. Hopefully they’ll kick it up in the 6.5 weeks to the release, or else just stop releasing this boring stuff, because it’s actually starting to cool my enthusiasm.
