Roser, a senior from GHS, was kind enough to put together this short promotional video of our upcoming Thursday night showing of X-Men: Days Of Future Past (details here). Check it out below:



XMENMONDAY.png

Continuing our celebration of Teen Tech Week, we'll be showing last year's X-Men: Days Of Future Past this Thursday night beginning at 6:30 pm.  It's a thrilling and fun entry in the long running series, with Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) travelling from a horrible future (sometime in 2023, the film implies), where mutants and humans are hunted down by the menacing Sentinel robots, to the year 1973. 

It's deduced by Wolverine and the surviving X-Men (along with former enemy turned ally Magneto) in the future that the 1973 killing of the Sentinels' creator, Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) by the mutant Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), somehow resulted in a devastated future Earth.  By going back in time, Wolverine must team up with younger versions of Professor X (James McAvoy), the Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Magneto (Michael Fassbinder) to prevent Trask's assassination and the subsequent creation of the Sentinels.  But the younger Magneto has his own plans...

Thanks to a solid screenplay by Simon Kinberg based on the 1981 comics storyline by Chris Claremont & John Byrne, and equally powerful direction by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Days Of Future Past has more exciting plot twits and turns (and inside jokes;  LOTS of inside jokes!) than most recent science fiction films.  Jackman, Dinklage, Lawrence, McAvoy, Hoult, and Fassbinder gives fine performances alongside a great cast, including Patrick Stewart (the present day/older Professor X), Ian McKellan (older Magneto), Ellen Page, Halle Barry and one or two very surprising cameos.  And the climax not only fixes some dangling loose ends and dramatic missteps  from recent X-Men films (especially 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand), but also successfully sets up possible new storylines for future films in the series! 

So come by and check out X-Men: Days Of Future Past this Thursday night!  The film starts at 6:30 in the second floor meeting room.
