    I think they should be far more concerned about not making any money rather than worrying if Sir Ian's schedule will come into conflict. As much as I love X-Men, there is no denying that Hobbit 3 will completely obliterate its box office on July 18th (and if I'm not mistaken, films take in the highest portion of earnings during the first weekend). I'm a little surprised they haven't announced a new date, and I wonder if it's a matter of pride (moving would mean them admitting a certain amount of defeat) or if they're waiting to see how production goes along before determining if they can bump it up or push it back.

    They are probably waiting til next year, or at least see how The Hobbit: Unexpected Journey and The Wolverine will perform at the box-office.

    But like I said before, they should move the release of DOFP while there are still vacant dates for July 2014.

    They might be able to feed of the success of Avengers. Although they're not the same studio, a good majority of people are aware they both come from Marvel, and will thus go to it in the hope of something like Avengers.
    I think this time they should really work on publicity, like The Avengers. When XMFC came out, it was little focused on, despite getting amazing reviews. Again, they should take a leaf out of The Avenger's book.

    Could they market the film as "Marvel's X-Men: Days of Future Past"? Or can only Marvel Studios do that?

    :doh: Oh God, I really hope they don't include "Marvel's" in the title.

    Its not necessary, Avengers would still be that huge at the box-office if they didn't include "Marvel's" in the movie title.

    Interesting question...perhaps we'll see it play out. Although with Marvel, it wasn't a "can"...but rather a "must."

    Marvel had to include Marvel's in the title for The Avengers [just as they had to call the UK release Avengers Assemble] because of rights issues dealing with the the unrelated 1960s British TV series...and the 1998 film debacle/adaptation. Marvel were probably "talked to" on both sides, through Europe (Canal + owns the TV rights) and Hollywood (feature film rights last known to be held by Jerry Weintraub).

    You can tell that Feige doesn't like to talk about this stuff:
    http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/ne...feige-on-uk-avengers-assemble-name-video.html

    Anyway, on topic, I don't think you'll see that from FOX, but I do expect to see the typical Marvel logo at the beginning of the film.

    I'm pretty sure the only thing they do is show the Marvel logo at the beginning of the movie.

    Now that Bryan AND Pat are back, I hope we get a voice over/cerebro doors opening again. During the press for First Class, Singer said he saw those openings as sort of the X-Men's version of a James Bond opening. Hope he gets it back.

    It just always makes the films feel more epic. Especially if the theme of the film is really good (like in X2).

    I like it. Makes the movies seem more special and it's no different than what Disney does with some of their movies.

    I have no problem with it, since they are based on Marvels comics its not like they are giving a false statement or anything. No Harm done either way imo.

    I agree. What are the chances of getting Ottman back to score?

    It would be great to hear the X-theme from X2 redone in DOFP but a little different obviously...
    Actually the Phoenix music was great too, makes me so giddy.

    yeah, I thought about X2 theme too. I imagine it would be exciting to hear it for second time on a new sequel, since all of us already heard it years ago.

    it would be an epic moment, in some way. specially during the actual movie, before final battle or something. And on the end credits

    I couldn't agree more! I hope they bring back the voice-over and the cerebro door at the beginning. X3 had a voice-over at the beginning but Brett Ratner scrapped it :o.

    Bryan uploaded a new pic on twitter, here

    There's a dude sitting next to him on the private jet (?). It's certainly not Kinberg. Question is, is it someone (new from the film crew) that we know?

    Possible but it could conceivably someone helping on the rewrites.

    I hope they stick to the slightly vintage theme of First Class.

    I love X2's theme and I have definitely missed the voiceover/dna/cerebro door intros. They were amazing and unique to the X-Men movies and they built anticipation to the movie. Especially since the opening scenes on both of Brian's movies were emotionally powerful like the Concentratin camp scene in X1 or stunning in terms of action. That Nightcrawler white house fight scene is still at the top of my best superhero movie openings.

    'Every few hundred millenia...Evolution leaps forward'

    That was amazing the first time with Prof X but I absolutely loved it the second time when Jean said it. Talk about an amazing, emotional ending

    It was an homage to Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan. What a great ending to both films!
