Sneak Peek new images of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence as the shape-shifting mutant 'Mystique', on the Montreal set of director Bryan Singer's currently shooting 3D Fox feature, "X-Men: Days Of Future Past":
"Days Of Future Past" adapts Marvel Comics' "Uncanny X-Men" (1981) issues #141 and #142, written by Chris Claremont and illustrated by John Byrne.
The story alternates between present day, in which the 'X-Men' fight the 'Brotherhood of Evil Mutants' led by mutant shape-shifter 'Mystique' (Lawrence)...
...and a future timeline caused by the X-Men's failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating 'Senator Robert Kelly' :
"...the story begins 30 years in the future. In the 'present' the year is 1980, and 'Kitty Pryde' has just joined the X-Men.
"While in the 'future' 'Kate Pryde' is a middle-aged women running for her life, trying to meet up with an elderly 'Wolverine' in a now-destroyed New York City.
"The future is bleak; an assassination of a presidential hopeful senator in 1980 led to a series of events that allowed the robotic 'Sentinels' into taking over North America.
"The Sentinels are ready to move overseas to spread their control world-wide...
"...but the rest of the world is ready to launch nuclear weapons to prevent that from happening.
"The surviving 'X-Men', who are very few, are 'Storm, 'Colossus', 'Wolverine', newcomer 'Rachel' and Kate herself.
"They are assisted by 'Magnus- Magneto', confined to a wheelchair..."
"The Days of Future Past' storyline was also adapted for the "X-Men" Animated TV series, with another alternative future story, focusing on bounty hunter 'Bishop' and the idea of a traitor within the ranks of the team.
