WATCH: X-Men: Apocalypse's Final Trailer

by | April 25, 2016 | Comments

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-Men: Apocalypse (in theaters May 27). 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.

    X-Men Apocalypse looks amazing. So excited, this could be the best X-Men movie yet. Can’t wait!

      LOL

  • Cody Travers

    Looking amazing. Can’t wait.

      I agree the visuals look solid, but then so did Batman v Superman’s, a prime example where great expectations plus wack filler storyline equalled great dissapointment.

        X Men movies have always been superior to the other competitive franchises in two ways, acting and story. MCU is all about action scenes and CGI, X Men, is not.

        • Juan Contreras

          You are kidding, right? Have you seen the reviews?

          • Oh man. Well, I for one have read some of the reviews, and some of their complaints are the ‘lack of humor’. What breaks a comic-franchise movie for me is if it contains that ‘balance’ of humor that is purposefully put in there to make it ‘family-friendly’ – that kind of sh!t is annoying because I’m not paying to watch an ‘Archie’ or ‘Garfield’ comic-movie, I’m paying to watch the ‘X-Men’. THOSE kinds of movies seem to put marketing above story: the last two X-Men movies were some of the best comic-franchise movies ever (for me, personally – I understand everyone’s different: some are persuaded by needless comedy in serious movies, while I find it out-of-place and unnecessary from a story-flow perspective) because they avoided stupid humor and kept the serious tone; making it more true-to-life (similar to the under-rated ‘BvS’, and I am not a SM or MB or even DC fan). If the critics are angry this movie has no humor and is more serious throughout, I think it is gonna be awesome. So, I hope you are kidding that you feel the need to follow the cries of what everyone else says and instead build your own anticipation about this movie – in the end, it’s just a movie; so in reality, I’m bashing critics who ‘can’t do’ and having my own opinion – but, it is fun to read some of the reviews to see just how much someone can criticize the work of others because it’s easier for them to bark than try. I will give everyone this though: I can see the ‘marketing ploy’ to pull audiences in with constantly pushing Jennifer Lawrence on us, and that itself is the same as adding unnecessary humor in that they both were just done to bring in the audience – I will say, I’m being a critic here, but we will see if it works.

    i’m too forever set in my ways about this franchise. Other than X2, they disappointed me and so I especially don’t like that they abandoned the older characters and have gone young. and i dont like lawerence as mystique.

    • Bundles Malone

      IMO Xmen films all dissapoint due to the original comics lack of depth being over-compensated for with too many bit-part disposable ‘super’ heroes.

      • MrPoster42

        Lack of depth in X-men comics? Maybe you should actually read them before making such an ignorant comment.

  • John A

    This looks horrible. Another save the world story against an all powerful super being. Yawn. And what is with all the Mystique screen time? OK its an Oscar winner but I don’t remember Superman centering it’s whole story around Marlon Brando.

    • Hammad

      You were okay with First Class being about Magneto and DOFP about Charles, so why the heck do you have a problem with Mystique being the main in this one?

    • MrPoster42

      They used Brando for exactly as much as they could get Brando to do.

  • Manny H

    Seems so out of place seeing Mystique as the ‘leader’ here; but as long as its good.

  • KingMarvel

    Archangel is my favorite character. I hope they don’t screw him up like, oh, always….

  • ajone

    Is this one of those “training the newbies to fight” movies as they rise up and etc? I’ve read a bunch of X-men in the past but don’t ever remember the Apoc. comics where Mystique trains anyone to fight Apoc. And I don’t think that Apoc. powers are even accurate. I think this movie is going to suck, 20th Fox needs to learn from Marvel, and follow the comics storyline better, the comics have really amazing story lines that you can make audience friendly.
