It’s 2023 and the tit­u­lar mu­tants are be­ing hunted to the brink of extinction by a fleet of ma­raud­ing ro­bots known as the Sen­tinels. A-lis­ter X-Men – Pro­fes­sor X, Mag­neto, Wolver­ine and Storm – take refuge in Mon­go­lia, where Shad­ow­cat does some hoodoo to send Wolver­ine back to 1973. His mis­sion is to stop Raven/ Mys­tique from killing Bo­li­var Trask, the para­noid mind be­hind the Sen­tinel pro­gramme, an act that his­tor­i­cally turned hu­mankind against mu­tant-kind. But can Wolver­ine rally the de­pressed younger Xavier and the im­pris­oned younger Mag­neto to get be­hind the cause? Fun. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 130 min
