Did you know that mutants may have been partially responsible for President John F. Kennedy's assassination? Neither did we. Blending historical events with fantasy is nothing new in cinema. We saw this with "Forrest Gump" and many other imaginative and amazing movies and now it looks like "X-Men" Days of Future Past" is utilizing the same technique.

A new viral campaign called "The Bent Bullet" has emerged with an attempt to expand the conspiracy around JFK's assassination even further. The campaign suggests that Magneto (played by Michael Fassbender) may have been tied to the events that day and the morbid and heartbreaking outcome.

Check out the video below:

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" will hit AMC Theatres on May 23, 2014

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
