FantasiaFest 'Days of Future Past' Footage Description

The footage description of Days of Future Past shown at Rated X: A Night Withe Bryan Singer

During a special panel at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal director Bryan Singer showed 2 minutes of exclsuive footage from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.  Now we have footage description from the event! Thanks to @MartinDP for the heads up:
It begins with the 20th Century Fox and Marvel logos, then cuts to an eye filling the screen ala the opening shot of “Blade Runner.”

WOLVERINE: What’s the last thing you remember?

We see fleeting shots of Hugh Jackman’s older Wolverine (with patented “Days of Future Past” white streaks in his hair), Halle Berry’s Storm with shorter hair (though not a mohawk) creating tornados in the distant dark clouds, Shawn Ashmore’s Iceman and Ellen Page’s Kitty Pryde looking all lovey dovey while Anna Paquin’s Rogue looks on angrily. Trouble in paradise!

PROFESSOR X: I had a glimpse into the past. You’re going to have to do for me what I want to do for you.

Omar Sy’s super-strong/energy-absorbing Bishop with copious dreadlocks, along with several other members of Magneto’s Mutant Brotherhood.

Wolvie, the Professor and Magneto taking shelter in an ornate Indian temple, lit by glowing orange fires of a post-apocalyptic, battle blasted landscape. Later shots show the location on fire and Wolverine not looking too happy about that.
James McAvoy’s long-hippy-haired/bearded Young Professor X blowing dust off the Cerebro helmet.

MAGNETO: You’ll need me as well, side by side to end this war before it ever begins.

Mustachioed Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask seated at a big wooden desk in front of some sort of United States government board of inquiry

WOLVERINE: So I wake up in my young body and then what?

Wolverine sent back in time via a machine made up of blue metal glowy things giving his head electric shock treatment. The suits most of the mutants are wearing have a much greater suit of armor feel to them, darker with grooves in the material.
Shirtless Wolverine getting shot full of bullet holes, which of course all heal up tidily in a jiffy.

PROFESSOR X: Find me. Convince me that all of this is going to need the two of us.

We catch 1970s protesters in the street, with an angry looking Richard Nixon (is there an other kind of Nixon?) looking on in contempt, “Watchmen”-style. The Oval Office seal is opened to reveal it’s a hatch in the floor leading to some room below. A coup-in-progress, perhaps?

WOLVERINE: And where do I find you?

MAGNETO: A different past. A darker path.

Michael Fassbender’s Young Magneto in the X-Mansion courtyard pulling a fallen blue

Mystique towards him with his mind, looking pissed.

PROFESSOR X: Logan, I was a very different man. Lead me, guide me, be patient with me.

Shots of Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique with her face/skin in normal J Law mode, then at least one prominent close-up of her in loveable huggable naked blue form with a tear streaming down her cheek.

WOLVERINE: Patience isn’t my strongest suit.

Nicholas Hoult in full Beast make-up screaming with terrifying vigor directly into the camera, staring someone down (besides the audience).

A glass room shattering over the head of an unidentified character.

YOUNG PROFESSOR X: I don’t want your suffering! I don’t want your future!

The final image is a close two-shot of Stewart in the Indian temple face to face with his younger McAvoy self.

PROFESSOR X: Please, we need you to hope again.
