X-Men: Apocalypse Feature Trailer (2016)
Feature Trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse.
Apocalypse picks up ten years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past timeline, with Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) still estranged from one another. Their paths are forced back together when Apocalypse awakens in his tomb and, finding the 1980s era wanting, decides to give the world a forced evolutionary jumpstart.
His assistants, the Four Horsemen, are mutants familiar to X-Men comics fan. Apocalypse finds Ororo Munro, a.k.a. Storm (Alexandra Shipp) on the streets of Cairo. Angel (Ben Hardy) is participating in a fight club in Berlin. Psylocke (Olivia Munn) is working in Eastern Europe for Caliban, a mutant power broker. The final Horseman is Magneto, who has been attempting to live a normal life in Poland with a woman he loves.
Meanwhile, Mystique has been helping to rescue oppressed mutants, including Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and becomes involved in the struggle against Apocalypse when she hears what happened to Erik. This leads her to Charles Xavier, whose school for gifted youngsters has grown significantly over the past decade. His students include young Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) and Scott Summers, a.k.a. Cyclops (Tye Sheridan).
The X-Men franchise began 16 years ago with X-Men in 2000.
This is the first X-Men film in which Hugh Jackman does not appear as Wolverine.
The film was to be called "Age of Apocalypse," after the comic of the same name. But this was changed to simply "Apocalypse" for a more ominous title, as well as to avoid comparison with Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014).
Believe it or not, this will be Bryan Singer's fourth X-Men film. He also previously directed:
X-Men: X-Men United (2003)
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
Hard to believe the this will be the 7th film in the X-Men franchise! They have been able to keep the films going by mixing in films from the future to the past.
I did like seeing more of a presence of Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) in this trailer, who seems to play a much larger role. Plus I really like the design of Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) himself, which seems to be a great depiction of the ultimate villain.
We have little marketing so far for X-Men: Apocalypse, which has kind of made the film fall out of the forefront of my mind with so many BIG films coming out this year. There has only been one other trailer so far and a Super Bowl TV Spot. So, I literally "almost" forgot it was coming out soon with all the publicity for Batman v Superman and other big films. X-Men: Apocalypse will be going head-to-head with Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass, which they even already had a couple trailers and a slew of TV Spots already released. Maybe Apocalypse doesn't need as much publicity and can just rely on it huge fandom.
