FAIRFIELD — The mutant superheroes get their time at movie theaters beginning Friday with the arrival of “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen star in the action film, partially set in an alternate future where surviving mutants have been penned in concentration camps. Giant robots patrol America in the future and most of the X-Men have been killed.
In the present day, the X-Men are forced to stop a key event from unfolding in order to keep that future from becoming a reality.
It’s rated PG-13.
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore pair up again in “Blended,” a PG-13 comedy about two single parents who, after a blind date, decide they never want to see each other again. Fate intervenes and the two, along with their children, are stuck sharing a suite at a safari resort.
