“Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.”

If there’s one thing director Bryan Singer achieves with X-Men: Apocalypse, it’s channeling the excess and indulgence of the 1980s. The ninth installment in the X-Men series has too much of everything, including thinly written characters, stale end-of-the-world scenarios, and overblown CGI annihilation.

X-Men: Apocalypse - Four Horseman

Fox has released the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. Directed by Bryan Singer (who has directed four of the six X-Men films), the film stars James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawerence as the mutant superheroes who must lead the gifted young students into battle against the titular villain (Oscar Isaac), who some claim to be a god. And as if fighting the world’s first mutant wasn’t enough of a problem, things get more complicated when Professor X’s (McAvoy) former friend Magneto (Michael Fassbender) allies himself with Apocalypse.

Check out the full trailer below.

X-Men Apocalypse

The world needs the X-Men, again. Fox has just released the trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. Though the title heroes of Marvel have faced many mutant and human threats before, they have never faced one as powerful as the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac). Now, after awakening from a great slumber, Apocalypse has gained the powers of a god, and recruits Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and three other powerful mutants to be his Horseman to help him cleanse the Earth of humans.

So it’s up to Professor Xavier’s (James McAvoy) students to stop them from succeeding. Foes are now allies and former friends believe in the gospel according to Apocalypse. Check out the full trailer below.

Tye Sheridan

Tye Sheridan may not be the most recognizable name at first, but he does have a growing resume that will make him one.

The actor who has appeared in films such as Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life and the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse has just signed on for the lead role in Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One. The casting pretty much rounds out the principle roles. More on the story below.

FOX doesn’t seem to mind that they cannot play in the Marvel Studios sandbox.

Now in anticipation for X-Men: Apocalypse summer release, the studio has released a Super Bowl spot for the upcoming X-Men sequel , which you can check out here below.

X-Men Apocalypse Header

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse starring James McAvoy (Victor Frankenstein), Michael Fassbender (Macbeth), and Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), all of whom will reprise their roles as Professor X, Magneto, and Mystique, respectively. Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the titular villain. Directed by Bryan Singer, the film marks the end of the First Class Trilogy.

In the film, En Sabah Nur is considered the very first mutant of human civilization. Worshiped as a god, the immortal mutant has a collection of powers that no single mutant can stop. After millennia of slumber, Apocalypse will awaken, disappointed in the state of the world. He recruits four of the most powerful mutants he can find, which includes a demoralized Magneto, to create a new mutant world order. Now, the X-Men must ally themselves with former enemies to stop Apocalypse from succeeding with this plan. Check out the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse here below.

X-Men: Apocalypse Header

While the titular villain of X-Men: Apocalypse has received some harsh criticism for not looking like his comic book counterpart, fans were still be excited by the fact that the upcoming film, which will end the First Class trilogy, would feature Marvel’s first mutant. We haven’t seen much in terms of footage since San Diego Comic-Con last summer. Maybe that was because everyone was just hyped to see Deadpool, which got a momentous positive reaction by everyone in Hall H.

Now we have a slight idea of when the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse will be released. According to the film’s producer, Simon Kinberg, it will be attached to theatrical showings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. More on the story below.

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse

Once in a while the zombie apocalypse gets a comedic twist (Shaun of the Dead), which is something a bit refreshing considering the genre’s subject matter (a group of survivors forced to work together against a hoard of zombies). Paramount has just released the first trailer for Christopher Landon‘s Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse, starring Tye Sheridan (The Tree of Life, X-Men: Apocalypse), David Koechner (Anchorman, Piranha 3DD), Logan Miller (Night Moves, The Stanford Prison Experiment), Halston Sage (Neighbors, Paper Towns), Joey Morgan, Patrick Schwarzenegger (Grown Ups 2, Dear Eleanor), and Cloris Leachman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Young Frankenstein).

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Will Have A Mutant Fight Club Says Bryan Singer
space

x-men apocalypse header

The first rule of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club. But how could someone not break that rule when it involves mutants? In the many X-Men and Wolverine films we’ve seen, the mutants always seem to be at odds, with the human factor also posing a threat to peace between mutants and Homo sapiens. Each mutant conflict is almost always for the survival of humanity, but at times when we see Professor X and Magneto on opposing sides it’s for their respective ideology/

Now X-Men: Apocalypse will bring in a new fight to the mutants. A mutant fight club will be seen in the upcoming sequel according to director Bryan Singer. More on the story and images below.
