The new ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ trailer features a really good cast with the likes of Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender and respected actors such as Oscar Isaac and James McAvoy. Great casts don’t necessarily mean great movies, but it’s nice to know that high level of dramatic skill is being invested into these productions.
Also, the premise of the film looks promising and intriguing, plus Bryan Singer is at the helm, who has been known to be the best director for the franchise. Can it be better than X-Men: Days of Future Past? We’ll have to wait and see. ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will be in theaters May 27, 2016.
Official synopsis: 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.
