"X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer has been tweeting up a storm (and tweeting about Storm) ever since he took the helm of the latest installment of the "X-Men" franchise, and on Monday he gave fans yet another taste of what they can expect from the film, revealing the first glimpse of Jennifer Lawrence re-applying her Mystique makeup.

The striking image shows Lawrence decked out in head-to-toe blue body paint, revealing every last curve of the Academy Award-winning actress's body. Her yellow eyes and red hair pop against her bright skin, and she's seen standing in front of a green screen backdrop.

This is Lawrence's second time appearing as the shape-shifting mutant (who Singer described as "vengeful'), having first stripped down in 2011's "X-Men: First Class." "Days of Future Past" promises to meld that world with the one seen in the first three "X-Men" films, purportedly featuring a time-traveling Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), who warns the mutants of the past about a catastrophic future.

Stars Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Anna Paquin, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender, among many others, are all slated to reprise their roles. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" hits theaters July 18, 2014.
