The concluding chapter in the X-Men prequel trilogy is almost upon us, but before you get all misty eyed over saying farewell some of your favourite superheroes they have to survive the apocalypse first.
Once again directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men Apocalypse finds Professor X (James McAvoy) with a new band of mutants that include young versions of Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Jean Grey (Sophie Turner). The School For Gifted Youngsters faces an even bigger threat than prejudice from the outside world, an ancient mutant (Oscar Isaac) awakens and sets about cleansing the world of its impurities. After a brief alliance in Days of Future Past, Magneto (Michael Fassbender) is once again on the opposite side to Professor X and is enlisted by Apocalypse to become one of his Four Horsemen.
Also featuring new incarnations of classic characters such as Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), and Angel (Ben Hardy), Apocalypse promises to bring the trilogy to a suitably grand conclusion.
Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner and Olivia Munn, X-Men: Apocalypse is released in the UK on May 19.
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with 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.
