Is it possible that this upcoming film may be doomed to lose out financially because they are following the same formula? I mean, it certainly helps that you have Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore with Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan and Hugh Jackman. But we're missing Famke, James and Halle which I strongly believe only combined WITH Patrick, Ian and Hugh guarantee box office success.

I say this because First Class had a Wolverine cameo and that wasn't enough for the bigger blockbuster numbers. XOW had a CGI Patrick Stewart/Xavier cameo in it, but it also failed. Hate it all you want, but the last top-selling X-Men film was X3 and it had everyone in the line-up together.

In other words, will Days Of Future Past have that IT factor that made big movie magic without half of its classic cast in place?
