They are in hiding, in prison and underground and they don't have the time to be "cute" and manicured. Gone are the days of X1, X2 and X3 where they live in polished get-ups, big ass mansions, cool jets, and hot technology. I wasn't thrilled with the hairstyle they opted for Halle Berry in this film when I first saw the leaked photo months ago, but now I'm 100% fine with it because I think it's a look that they are using to communicate a certain theme and tone.
THIS! Pause the trailer at 43 seconds in: They all look tired from the fighting. But You can see on Storm's face that she is battle weary. Empire Magazine has an article up now with Bryan Singer going through the trailer. He calls Storm, for the movieverse, "She’s one of the last surviving X-Men in this post-apocalyptic world"
. I think the future scenes will be a bit sad to watch for us folk who have been with the series since they started. But I can't wait, I think Storm will have her moment.
