With X-Men: Apocalypse being set in the 80’s, a lot of Fox’s marketing for the film involved retro style videos, including an enrollment video hosted by Jubilee and a documentary featuring Apocalypse. In addition, the X-Men Movies official Facebook page has released this third retro styled video, a tour of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. And it looks like it was pulled straight from the 80’s.
Some of the mutants highlighted in the video include Cyclops, Quicksilver, and Professor X, who can hear your thoughts. Yes, all your thoughts (as the video humorously emphasizes). Make sure to check out the clip below:
In addition, a deleted scene from the film has also been released via Twitter, featuring Professor X attempting to free Storm from aiding Apocalypse. Check out the deleted scene below:

The release of the retro video was to coincide with the release of X-Men: Apocalypse on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 4th.
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.
