Don't get me wrong, I really liked X1 and X2 for the most part, but after some really disappointing movies from Singer since, I am hesitant.
Still, considering they haven't even shown the Sentinels in actual moving form or a great many things that could or should be in there, I am still very interested.
P.S. McAvoy becoming Patrick Stewart I can get with, but how on earth is burly Fassbender supposed to end up as tiny Ian McKellen? Does his power eventually shrink his skeleton?
(Ironically I just looked it up and McAvoy is 3 inches shorter than Stewart and McKellen is allegedly only 1 inch shorter than Fassbender! But the perceived differences are huge.)
I'd like to see some squaring away with how Xavier took a bullet in 1970, making him paralyzed with Magneto splitting the factions... only to have Xavier walking fine with best bud McKellen in 1985.

That, does not work in this trailer. Either they need to pick different scene, or different song.
I like the current Dead Rising TV commercial. So happy together...
