Yes, 2016 is chock-full of superhero movies, probably the most we’ve ever had in a single year. And yes, maybe X-Men: Apocalypse wasn’t as high on my radar as most of the others up until recently, but that’s obviously not the case anymore. The next X-Men continues to look great, the stakes are higher than ever and I’m genuinely curious to see how they’ll get out of this one and where they might take the series next. I mean you can only one-up yourself so many times before it turns into a joke. Also I’m curious to see Deadpool‘s impact on the box office of this X-Men film.
“Since ancient times, the first and most powerful mutant, Apocalypse—immortal and invincible—has been worshipped as a god. But when Apocalypse awakens from hibernation and decides to end humanity, Raven and Charles Xavier lead a team of young X-Men to face Apocalypse and defeat him.”
This is Bryan Singer’s fourth X-Men movie behind the camera. Starring in X-Men: Apocalypse are Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Evan Peters, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee and more.
X-Men: Apocalypse opens May 19th in the UK and May 27 in the US. That’s only three weeks after Captain America: Civil War. Too much fun right? I know.
