X-films. History of X-men films

X-men: Days of Future Past posterWith the new X-men film in UK cinemas, it gives us a chance to look back at all the films that have spawned from the comic books.

Most of this post will be old trailers from the films. Possibly the poster but who knows…

The franchise as a whole is good. They have done some dubious films. The first Wolverine springs to mind. With very sub-par special effects from a film that should have had better ones. They have also done great ones. the first X-men movie and the first of the “prequels” are in this category.

So, without further ado, I give you the X-men films. Only the ones that came after the 2000 films, X-men.

First, let’s hit the original trilogy. From a great start & then it goes downhill from there…

X-Men (2000)


X2 (2003)

X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)


2011 saw the franchise get a prequel film. that spawned, not only a sequel to First Class but to the original series as well.

X-Men: First Class (2011)

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

In last place, we see the two Wolverine films. “Origins” isn’t that bad a film. What let it down was the CGI. It has the look of it being abandoned as money was tight. That spawned a, sort of, sequel in 2013 with Wolverine.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)


The Wolverine (2013)

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
