I just think that it's way too early to predict big things now based on trending, tweeting and an incomplete leaked lowres trailer. And that while the film has some factors going for it, it also has other factors working against it. At the very least, we'd need to see the first official trailer, with the finished special effects and everything.

Maybe the new stuff like time travel and robots will get the audience's interest, but then it's not like they were never seen on screen before. And dystopian movies are honestly dime a dozen these days. Will the public think them special because they were never used in an X-Men movie? Maybe, maybe not.
If a movie has been continuously trending for months before its release, its a sign that it would perform very well. The Wolverine/First Class didn't have that, so it make sense why those two didn't perform great at the box-office.
