Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, director Bryan Singer returns with spectacular sequel X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. The film marks his fourth in the mutant-filled comic-book franchise that he began some 16 years ago with the original X-MEN movie.
The time we’re heading to the 1980s to pick up with Professor Charles Xavier’s band of younger mutant misfits, who must unite to take on the might of Oscar Isaac’s psychopathic sub-titled super villain, En Sabah Nur, and his Four Horsemen.
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.
