This summer's final X-Men prequel trilogy X-Men: Apocalypse debuted on Digital HD formats earlier this month, and as we wait for the Blu-ray and DVD release, a new gag reel has surfaced. We have already shown you a few deleted scenes thus far, but today we have a hilarious eight-minute gag reel, that shows the lighter side of these mutants on set. The fact that these bloopers clock in at a whopping eight minutes long is a good indication of how much fun the actors had while shooting the movie.
While it certainly is rare to get a gag reel as long as this one, this video, which surfaced on YouTube, is jam-packed full of comedy gems, many of them coming from Jennifer Lawrence. During numerous takes, the actress is seen calling for lunch, while another hilarious bit features her ad-libbing during a scene with Beast (Nicholas Hoult), where she admits that Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is her illegitimate son with Azazel, which Beast isn't exactly in favor of. We also get a number of humorous exchanges between Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, along with a scene where Jennifer Lawrence accidentally elbows one of her cast mates in the face.
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 (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.
Special Features on the X-Men: Apocalypse Blu-ray include Deleted/Extended Scenes with Optional Introductions by Bryan Singer, Gag Reel, Wrap Party Video, an hour long documentary entitled X-Men: Apocalypse Unearthed, audio Commentary by Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg, concept art and a Photo Gallery. We reported in May that most of the scenes featuring Jubilee (Lana Condor) weren't included in the movie, but there will be one on the Blu-ray and DVD that will show her using her powers. Another video from June broke down all of the scenes that were teased in the previews leading up to the theatrical release that didn't make the cut.
X-Men: Apocalypse brings the X-Men prequel trilogy to a close, pulling in $155.4 million domestically and $543.3 million worldwide, from a $178 million budget. Producer Simon Kinberg recently confirmed that the next X-Men movie is set in the 1990s, following suit from the prequel trilogy. X-Men: First Class was set in the 1960s, followed by X-Men: Apocalypse in the 1970s and X-Men: Apocalypse in the 1980s. Take a look at this gag reel from X-Men: Apocalypse below.
