In the original comics version of Days of Future Past, the X-Men travel into the distant future of...2013. Which, of course, is actually before the present day of X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2014 (the movie instead travels to 2023). This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes back to the future with X-Men: Days of Future Past!

There's one mutant in this X-Men film that you probably don't remember from the comics: President John F. Kennedy. According to the film, the 35th President of the United States was actually a mutant whose power was “telepathic persuasion”. (The film also posits that Magneto was the one responsible for JFK’s assassination.)
