While the trailer of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, starring actor Chris Evans, was released on October 24, the first look into X Men: Days of Future Past, starring actors Hugh Jackman, James Mackavoy and others, was released on October 29.

Captain America’s trailer shows the titular character fighting for the honour of his country, against his best friend, a brainwashed assassin, Bucky Barnes, played by actor Sebastian Stan. The trailer has already crossed the one crore mark and the comments on Twitter and YouTube are nothing but positive.

Caleb Cook, a YouTube user wrote, “Probably Marvel’s best trailer on popularity vs. excitement generated basis. He is not one of my favourite characters, but now I want to watch the movie.” Another Captain America fan, Diana Rico, wrote on Twitter, “I guess I’m the only one excited for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It is awesome”. The first official trailer for the fifth film for the X-Men franchise, X Men: Days Of Future Past, has already crossed one crore hits and the response is nothing but of anticipation. Rahul Nayyar, a YouTube user wrote, “It is just too good. They will move in time now to save the war!! that is just epic !”.

Another user on the video sharing platform, John Smith wrote, “If this is the trailer, I can’t really wait to watch the film. Will we see Hugh Jackman a bit younger”?
