Fox has released the first trailer for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', which features Halle Berry reprising her role as Storm. The stunning actress shot the film while pregnant with her son Maceo Robert Martinez, who was born on October 5th in Los Angeles.

At the time, Berry revealed that the production would have to shoot around her pregnancy and that her role would still be integral, despite her growing baby bump, saying: "Storm probably won’t be as badass as she was going to be because we won’t be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that. She’ll be different than we originally planned her to be but I still think she’ll be an integral part of this new X-Men movie."

Due in theaters on May 23, 2014, the forthcoming film picks up after Matthew Vaughn's 2011 prequel 'X-Men: First Class', which chronicled the mutant superheroes' origins as young people in the 1960s, discovering and learning to manipulate their powers.

Directed by Bryan Singer and written by Vaughn and Simon Kinberg, the latest film in the 'X-Men' series also stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Daniel Cudmore, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Michael Fassbender.
