There is a ton happening in this first intense trailer that lets fans hear this new threat speak and it is glorious
The X-Men have had a lot of adventures together in comics and some of these have recently been brought to the big screen. Some of the films were good, some were okay and a few of them were downright amazing. In 2014 they decided to tackle Days of Future Past and it has become the most successful film in this franchise to date. A sequel to this picture is coming out next year and the first trailer is finally here and this is what we know from it.
In early civilizations there was a man named En Sabah Nur but fans know him better as Apocalypse. He is the first and most powerful mutant to ever live and there was a time that he was worshiped as a god. Over time he amassed the powers and abilities of other mutants and this made him immortal and invincible. After a slumber that lasted thousands of years he awakens to a world that he finds to be a total disaster. He decides the only thing to do is recruit a team of mutants to help him cleanse humanity and create a new world order where he will reign. As the fate of our world hangs in the balance it it is up to Raven and Charles Xavier to lead a team of young mutants against this powerful threat to try and save humanity. Who will join this powerful mutant on his mission? Just how strong is he really? And what kinds of powers does he have against his own kind? And will this team be able to stop his plans before it is too late?
This movie looks just amazing. There is so much going on here and it is not crazy to think it may be tough to put it all together in a way that fans will enjoy but others can understand too. But this writer is confident with this team after they did such a wonderful job on Days of Future Past last year. The villain is the strongest the world has yet seen in this cinematic universe and it is going to take a lot to stop him. The film is bringing back some of the older mutants fans know and love and is also going to add some new ones like Nightcrawler, Angel, Jubilee and Cyclops as well as a Storm, Jean Grey and Psylocke. The special effects are stellar and it great to hear Apocalypse speak and see that he looks like a truly dangerous foe and not a strange purple looking being. Overall this writer loved every minute of this trailer and cannot wait to see this movie when it comes out.
If you are a fan of the X-men then you must watch this trailer. If you enjoyed Days of Future Past then this is surely a trailer you must not miss out on. X-Men: Apocalypse comes out May 27, 2016.
