You’ve seen Olivia Munn jump in a giant chocolate pie, but have you seen her slice a car in half? You will in the latest trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse that aired during last nights big sporting event game.
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.
Though the X-Men are not part of the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe, the last couple of movies have been a lot of fun, so I’m willing to kick back, eat some popcorn, and watch the crazy-ass stunts on the big screen.
