James McAvoy & Patrick Stewart Talk X-Men: Days of Future Past Encounter

It was a huge opening for X-Men: Days of Future Past, as the film took in over $111 million at the domestic box-office. That’s the fifth best Memorial Day weekend to date, right behind last year’s Fast & Furious 6 ($117 million). The franchise’s next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse is set for a 2016 debut on the same calendar weekend.

One of the many memorable sequences of X-Men: Days of Future Past features a disillusioned Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) getting a few moments with his more mature (and future) self – Professor X (Patrick Stewart). The film’s theme of hope amidst adversity and tragedy is best exemplified in this sequence, and although it’s a dramatically charged moment, Stewart claims he and McAvoy didn’t over analyze the scene.
