OTRC: 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' final trailer released, Anna Paquin returns

Jennifer Lawrence and Hugh Jackman appears in a trailer for the 2014 film 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' (20th Century Fox)

The final trailer for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" was released on Tuesday, April 15, and it's filled with tons of action and focused on Wolverine.

In the trailer, which can be viewed below, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is seen going to the worn down Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, where he talks to a down trodden and shaggy-haired Professor Charles Xavier, telling him, "You're going to find this hard to believe. I was sent here for you, from the future, 50 years from now."

Wolverine warns Charles that in the future the Sentinels, giant robots who were initially created to hunt down mutants, began targeting everyone and that he was sent by future Charles to alter history and prevent the dystopian future from ever happening.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" features cast members from the original trilogy, like Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, who play present day versions of Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto, and Halle Berry as Storm, as well as "X-Men: First Class" cast members James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, who play younger versions of Charles and Magneto, and Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique.

At the end of the new trailer, a credit can also be seen for Anna Paquin, who played Rogue in the original X-Men trilogy. Paquin's credit in the trailer is significant because back in December, director Bryan Singer said that she would not appear in the film because her sequence in the movie had been cut.

The director explicitly told Entertainment Weekly at the time, "It was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though she's in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won't appear in it."

However, 20th Century Fox, the studio behind the film, confirmed to BuzzFeed on Wednesday, April 16, that Paquin does appear in the film. "Essentially, [it's] a cameo," a spokesperson for the studio told the site.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" hits theaters on May 23. Check out the trailer below.
