X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
April 11, 2015  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

For this 2014 entry in the film franchise that first established Marvel as a movie powerhouse, the storylines are split between past and present, as in The Godfather Part II. Except here, in this genre, what happens as Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) travels into the past can affect the future significantly. In fact, everyone’s counting on it. Meanwhile, this new film gives a much more prominent role to one of its cast members, who has become more of a movie star every year, largely because of her work in other films: Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique. And Raven.
