If this is the apocalypse, than hot damn… I’m liking it.
After photo teases since all the way back before X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST was even released, the first trailer for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is finally here.
X-MEN: APOCALYPSE marks the mutants’ cinematic return as Bryan Singer is back as director for the sixth — and presumably final (sadly) — time since the franchise came to the big screen in 2000. This is also wraps up the ‘First Class’ trilogy of X-films, so where the franchise goes after this, nobody knows. All I do know, however, is that the 10-year-old me who grew up reading and watching the X-Men couldn’t be happier with the films Fox has provided. Yes, I even enjoyed the “bad” ones.
Oscar Isaac arrives as the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, alongside newcomers Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Lana Condor as Jubilee, Ben Hardy as Angel, and Olivia Munn as Psylocke. They join returning cast members James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Lucas Till, Rose Byrne, and Evan Peters.
X-MEN: APOCALYPSE hits theaters May 27, 2016.
