It’s been a bumpy ride for the marketing of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse and we all know that if there isn’t enough good footage to make a good trailer it’s a pretty damming indication of the quality of the end product. This brand spankin’ new trailer is the best of the bunch, but it’s still not doing much for us, in terms of our dear old friends anticipation and excitement.
Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine pops up for a brief moment, so that might do something for you. There’s also a lot of unconvincing CGI, which didn’t do anything for us.
“Since ancient times, the first and most powerful mutant, En Sabah Nur, also known as Apocalypse—immortal and invincible—has been worshipped as a god. But when Apocalypse awakens from a hibernation of thousands of years, he is disgusted to find out what the world has come to and decides to change it. He recruits four followers (four horsemen) to help him with this task of destroying humanity and building a better world, led by him, from the ruins. Raven and Charles Xavier lead a team of young X-Men to face Apocalypse and defeat him.“
X-Men: Apocalypse stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Oscar Isaac, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Evan Peters and Tye Sheridan and is set for release in May, 2016.
