Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-Men: Apocalypse, opening in theaters everywhere May 27, 2016.
Fox just released the film’s trailer that introduces us to the God of all mutants, Apocalypse, while also proving that pictures aren’t always worth a 1,000 words. I think we all vomited in our mouths when we saw photos of Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac. Now, seeing him in action, he’s pretty chilling. The way Singer shot Apocalypse makes him feel huge, no, massive, and the God-like presence is sold perfectly.
It’s also pretty awesome that X-Men: Apocalypse bounced between past and present, again, which are so great for the film’s characters and pre-existing universe.
But the biggest selling point, for me anyway, is that X-Men: Apocalypse will debut Jubilation Lee (aka “Jubilee”), played by Lana Condor and Psylocke (Olivia Munn), two of my favorite Marvel characters. It looks as if Psylocke is one of Apocalypse’s “Four Horsemen”?
My only complaint? NO CABLE. Maybe Rob Liefeld’s awesome creation will eventually see a place in the Marvel cinematic universe. But it doesn’t look like it will be in X-Men: Apocalypse.
“Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible.
Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.“
The film features James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Olivia Munn, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Lucas Till, Josh Helman, Lana Condor, and Ben Hardy.
