The next installment in the X-Men franchise, Days of Future Past, is close at hand — and that means the hype machine is being kicked into eighth gear. Twentieth Century Fox's latest gambit is 25Moments.com, a "fictional experience from the world of X-Men." The micro-site is intended to set the stage for the new film, in which various X-people travel through time to find themselves (literally). The result is an alternate history lesson in which President Nixon chills with giant killer robots and babies are born made of metal thanks to the Chernobyl disaster. Is it a tedious, viral click-through? Yes. Is it amazing? Also yes. Here's a closer look at some of the best shots from the site.
"Congressional investigators seeking evidence of an improper relationship between Trask Industries and the Nixon White House are stymied when they discover that 18½ minutes of a meeting between Bolivar Trask and President Nixon have been completely erased." 20th Century Fox
