20th Century Fox has confirmed the third and likely final theatrical trailer for X-Men Apocalypse will come out tomorrow.
The new trailer may resemble the footage shown at CinemaCon earlier this month, albeit with some alterations. Lucky audience members in attendance saw an epic confrontation between James McAvoy’s Professor X and Oscar Isaac as the titular villain, a humorous scene where Quicksilver reveals to Mystique that Magneto is his father, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) leading Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) on a rescue mission to save the professor, and an amazing fight sequence with Psylocke vs. Cyclops and Nightcrawler vs. Storm. Following the exposition heavy scene in previous trailers explaining Apocalypse’s “Four Horseman,” Xavier pleads to his former friend turned enemy Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto (Michael Fassbender) not to join forces with Apocalypse.
A big surprise character will make an appearance at the end of tomorrow’s trailer as Heroic Hollywood previously reported, which is a significant change from the CinemaCon footage that is sure to excite fans.
Worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilization, the immortal Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) becomes the first and most powerful mutant. Awakening after thousands of years, he recruits the disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and other mutants to create a new world order. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Professor X (James McAvoy) and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) lead a team of young X-Men to stop their seemingly invincible nemesis from destroying mankind.
Directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men, The Usual Suspects) with a screenplay by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Fantastic Four), produced by Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men, X-Men: First Class), Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, and Hutch Parker (The Wolverine, In Time), the sequel to 20th Century Fox’s critically acclaimed 2014 film X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled to be released on May 24th, 2016 in North America in 3D and 2D.
