The X-Men: Apocalypse trailer hit this morning and for the most part it looked awesome! The movie stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, Josh Helman, Lana Condor, and Ben Hardy. A lot of people basically! The movie will premiere in theaters on May 27th 2016.
I’m still not entirely sold on the look of Apocalypse and think he still looks stupid looking. I thought he would have a more menacing voice like in the cartoon but I’m more fine with that. They don’t want to get all Bane-y with his voice I suppose. But maybe Apocalypse will turn out to be cool and the costume will just be a minor thing that people hate? At least he doesn’t look like Grimace anymore! I’m sure Bryan Singer will do a good job with it despite the fanboy nitpicking. You get to see first looks at the new characters/actors playing characters like Jean Grey, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Jubliee, and others. Plus, we finally got a glimpse of Xavier with a bald head at the end of the trailer too! I’ll definitely be watching this opening weekend despite what I think of Apocalypse.
