X-Men: Days of Future Past opens tonight at midnight, and although the movie is getting all sorts of tie-in promotions in the US, this promotion by the Hanshin Tigers managed to take the tie-ins up a level while deftly avoiding copyright infringement claims. To advertise their upcoming game, the minor league Japanese team recreated the movie's poster.

X-Men set to open in Japan on May 30, while the baseball game is set to take place on May 31 and June 1. Uncanny timing.


I'm going to say what we're all thinking: Jennifer Lawrence is a way hotter Mystique, but how is she at outfielding?
