New Movies This Week: ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ ‘Blended’
It’s been like three whole weeks since we’ve had a new major comic-book movie hit theaters, so you can all relax now—the X-Men are back! As are Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, in their their third rom-com together.
Your favorite mutants are back, this time joining the universes of the original ‘X-Men’ trilogy with that of ‘X-Men: First Class.’ In this tale, Wolverine is sent back in time to help prevent the creation of a terrifying future in which mutants (and humans) are hunted by super-robots called Sentinels.
