The comic-to-film trend isn’t going to end anytime soon. Hollywood now sees the comic book world as a previously untapped gold mine, and they’re going to milk it for all its worth. I say let them milk it! I’ve been a reader of comic books since 1992, and there are enough stunning and mystifying story arcs and comic characters out there to produce another 50 top notch pictures. In fact, that’s what we’re hoping the future brings us: more riveting transfers of legendary tales.
You know you’re dealing with an amazing franchise when the worst of the bunch (X-Men: The Last Stand; we’re not even considering X-Men Origins: Wolverine, as that really wasn’t an X-Men movie) is an awful lot better than your average superhero flick.
The truth is, X-Men is a blockbuster money making machine because the films are well crafted and thoroughly nurtured, From the looks of this brand new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer, we’re in for another amazing adventure.
X-Men: Apocalypse is directed by Bryan Singer who works from a screenplay written by Simon Kinberg. Expect plenty of familiar faces as James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne, Evan Peters, and Lucas Till all return to reprise their roles. Olivia Munn, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Oscar Isaac and Lana Condor also join the cast.
Check out the trailer below.
Synopsis: 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, 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 with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
