As part of our weeklong run-up to this Friday’s release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, we’re looking back at the nearly 15 years of mutant-mad X-Men films, in which the mutants did battle separately and together. But today, we pit Charles Xavier’s protégés against themselves by ranking, in reverse order, all the previous six X-Men films (including the two Wolverine ones). We don’t yet have the time-travel technology that can tell us where Days of Future Past will stand in the canon, but we’ll teleport back here Monday to put it in its place: 6. X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) The most ambitious entry in the X-Men series is also the weakest.
While Wolverine can heal himself, Hugh Jackman, 45, is but a mere mortal. Over seven X-Men/Wolverine films and countless sets of razor-sharp claws, the accident-prone Australian has suffered his share of punctures and painful injuries.
On Saturday night, Yahoo Movies presented the live red carpet from the world premiere of “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and naturally all eyes were on returning star Jennifer Lawrence. Lawrence told Yahoo’s Ben Lyons, “I actually brought it to ‘X-Men’ from ‘Hunger Games.’ We play it obsessively, and I brought it to these guys. They really liked it.” She added, “And I am the best, thank you for asking.” [Photos: 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' New York Premiere Red Carpet] Lawrence’s co-star Hugh Jackman — no stranger to the circle game, himself — said that sort of childish fooling around is just part of the job. Well, let’s make it elementary school.” Jackman did say that with “Days of Future Past” being his seventh time playing Wolverine (including his cameo in “X-Men: First Class”), he does feel like the upperclassman on the set.

The “X-Men” franchise may have looked much different if the comics’ most celebrated writer had gotten his way: Chris Claremont wanted Bob Hoskins, who died Tuesday, to play Wolverine. Claremont is the writer responsible for the most famous “X-Men” storylines, including the “Days of Future Past” story that inspired the new film of the same title. A decade before Bryan Singer brought the Marvel Comics mutants to the screen, Claremont envisioned an X-movie produced by James Cameron, directed by Cameron's then-wife Kathryn Bigelow, and starring Hoskins (pictured) as Wolverine and Angela Bassett as Storm.
The future is now as the latest trailer for “X-Men: Days of Future Past " has landed in the present, and with it a shocking revelation: the potential death of at least one major graduate of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. We’re speaking of Ororo Munroe, aka Storm, the weather-controlling badass beauty played by Halle Berry in the original “X-Men” trilogy. In recent weeks, Berry and director Bryan Singerrefuted speculation that her role had been considerably cut from the final version of the film. Emphasis on the “cut” in today’s trailer: at the 26-second mark, Storm appears to get ambushed by a Sentinel (one of the mutant-stomping robots created by Peter Dinklage’s Bolivar Trask).
