X-Men seems like the most buzz-film for next year's summer!
For the first time in nearly a decade for its series, the front-runner seems to be X-Men: Days of Future Past. Online buzz for the film has been audible as it promises to unite the original cast with their well-regarded, younger counterparts from 2011's First Class. Yes, the X-Men franchise slipped from its box office peak after 2006, but as The Avengers proved, sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Days of Future Past will feature a large ensemble led by Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy (among many others) with Bryan Singer returning to direct the mutants for the first time since 2003's X2. The recent move to a Memorial Day weekend opening--just three weeks after Spidey--indicates that Fox has a lot of confidence in it. The sequel has consistently been one of the most discussed movies on Twitter.
Oh the power of bringing back the original cast!
I hope it delivers next year!
