A clip revealing new X-Men mutants and their powers has been unveiled at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas.

In the first few minutes of the new X-Men: Days Of Future Past clip, mutants including newcomers Blink, Sunspot, Warpath and Bishop attempt to battle ruthless metal monsters using their special abilities, and some don't make it out alive.

The clip was unveiled at CinemaCon and introduced by Jim Gianopulos, chairman and CEO of 20th Century Fox, to cinema owners.

The seventh instalment of the Marvel franchise, due out in the US on May 23, brings back two-time X-Men director Bryan Singer, as the younger selves of X-Men Professor Charles Xavier (played by James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) join forces with their older selves (Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen) to fight species across two time periods.

Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Storm (Halle Berry) and many of the other X-Men also appear.

Among those featured in the clip, Ellen Page plays Shadowcat, Shawn Ashmore is Iceman, Bingbing Fan is newbie Blink (she can teleport herself), Adan Canto is Sunspot (he can store and convert solar energy), Booboo Stewart is Warpath (he has superhuman strength and his body can regenerate quickly) and Omar Sy is Bishop (he is able to release absorbed biokinetic energy).
