PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
The X-Men send Wolverine to the past in a desperate effort to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.
Angel, Azazel, Riptide, and Emma were originally going to return, but when the filmmakers decided to go with the "Days of Future Past" story, they had them all killed off.
The future: a dark, desolate world. A world of war, suffering, loss on both sides. Mutants, and the humans who dared to help them, fighting an enemy we cannot defeat. Are we destined down this path, destined to destroy ourselves like so many species...
The entire idea of there being anachronisms in this film is a goof in itself. Since this is an alternate universe with multiple examples of advanced technology, along with events that never occurred in our reality, virtually any "anachronism" can be explained by non-parallel development. Maybe Pink Floyd debuted for the Christmas shoppers. Stark or Trask may have advanced the armor and arms for 'Nam. If any parallel realities exist, MP3s might have been obsolete by 1980. Everything is theoretically possible.
SPOILER: The X-Films' title sequences features a weapon used by the villain of each film, backed by the X-Men's Cerebro device. In this film it is Boliver Trask's Sentinel machine, which is a mixture of circuitry and Mystique's cells.
