X-Men: Days of Future Past is the next installment of the Marvel comic book series in which robots called Sentinels have been sent with tremendous power to kill all mutants. Mutants living in this current era decide to send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back in time to the 70's to prevent the production of the Sentinels, which appears to be the only solution available to combat the terror they are raining down.
The visual effects in this film are incredibly cool. First, X-Men in general has fantastic visuals because mutants don't exist. (Much like The Hunger games series, it has been overlooked in the makeup category, and it shouldn't have been.) Then, add in the amazing effects produced for the Sentinel robots, and it's easy to see how this film was finally nominated for this category. The Marvel universe films, in general, should be contenders each year for visual effects nominations, and this film is a very deserving for this one indeed.
