This month we thought it would be nice to cozy up and close out the year by showcasing a couple of movies that we like. We'll be screening one of Tracy's favorites, X-Men: Days of Future Past, from 2014. With an all-star cast that includes Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence and Halle Berry, this latest X-Men instalment sees Wolverine getting sent by the X-Men to the past in an attempt to prevent a calamitous future for both humans and mutants.
