Futuristic mutants meet retro design in this fan-created movie trailer, which recalls the good old days of Saul Bass

From posters to opening credits, movie art has deteriorated over the decades. The artful opening credits and abstract designs of yesteryear have been replaced with gaudy CGI-laden scenes and unimaginative posters showcasing the stars, rather than a movie's themes.

The newest X-Men movie will likely fall prey to this trend. But at least one fan hopes the creators will go in a different, more retro direction. Vimeo user Joe D! put together this classy, Saul Bass-esque credits sequence, which includes a rendition of the '90s X-Men theme song and harkens back to classic superhero and James Bond openers.
