Earlier today we got a new viral video & four X-Men: Apocalypse Entertainment Weekly covers for their upcoming issue. Now to go alongside those covers, EW has released a few new images from the film which feature a number of cool shots including Sophie Turner as Jean Grey unleashing her powers and ‘Apocalypse’ alongside three of his four Horsemen. While the film hasn’t received glowing reviews, it’s currently receiving strong word of mouth from fans and I’m excited to check it out myself next week. As someone that grew up during the 80s, curious to see what kind of vibe that brings to the film. Check out the new images and let us know what you think in the comments section afterwards.
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.
Only the strong will survive when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
