Studios often release two versions of a movie trailer for their upcoming releases. The first one is the teaser trailer. This trailer is usually not very long. It can be anywhere from 30-seconds, up to a full two-and-a-half minutes. Then, as the release date gets closer the studio will release the official movie trailer, which is always considerable longer. Last night, October 24, the first trailer from "X-Men: Days of Future Past" was released online. The trailer is only 7 seconds long. You may have heard of term "teaser trailer", but this is ridiculous.
Check out the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" for yourself by clicking the video. They do manage to pack a lot of mutants is such a short time frame. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Storm (Halle Berry) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) from the old X-Men movies, all can be seen. Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult), from the newer X-Men movie also appear.
Obviously, not much can be made about the plot in a 7 second span, but they do cram a whole lot of action into that time. You can count on a longer trailer to be released before the year is over. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" open May 23.
