We’re now little under a month away from the arrival of X-Men: Apocalypse and to celebrate, 20th Century Fox has pumped out another two TV spots for Bryan Singer’s biblical blockbuster.
Teeing up Apocalypse’s crude awakening, which portends all kinds of danger for our band of mutants, both snippets can be found below. Indeed, they arrive in tandem with a new image for Bryan Singer’s threequel, and it’s one that features a cute Easter Egg.
Starring Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey and Tye Sheridan’s Cyclops, the still places the young stars in a music shop, where a bespectacled Cyclops is brandishing an album by Dazzler, the mutant-turned-entertainer from the original comics. Expect that to be one of many nuggets of fan service buried in Fox’s final feature.
Alongside Turner and Sheridan for X-Men: Apocalypse are James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Nicholas Hoult, along with the Four Horsemen themselves – Michael Fassbender, Olivia Munn, Alexandra Shipp and Ben Hardy.
Matthew Vaughn may have introduced us to the First Class, but after bending minds and genre conventions in Days of Future Past, it is Bryan Singer that is set to bring the curtain down on Fox’s mutant tentpole – for now, at least – when X-Men: Apocalypse looms into theaters on May 27.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped 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.
