We would not be here if we were cynical about new movie releases, even the really huge blockbuster ones as part of a huge franchise that has been responsible for some wondrous astonishments and preposterous old tosh using exactly the same set of characters.

So, at this point, as the first trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past hits the internet and the mighty pairing of Sir Ian McKellen with Sir Patrick Stewart from X-Men, meets James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender from X-Men: First Class, through the grizzled fizzog of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine (from that movie about the wolverine, I forget the name), it’s entirely legitimate to take whichsoever stance feels most comfortable.

You can cock your snooks, you can yehaw and caterwaul, it’s up to you. Personally I’m off to the chemists to get some cream for this strange lumpy rash that seems to afflict the skin on my arms and the back of my neck about two-thirds of the way through this clip.

Yeah, at about the point McAvoy starts shouting. Every time.
