There hasn't been a shortage of X-Men: Apocalypse posters lately. We've gotten one-sheets for every single main character, including the New Mutants, The Four HorseMen and the title villain. Today, we get the international IMAX poster, which brings them all together for war! Professor X leads the charge, as Apocalypse looms in the background ready to strike.
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-Men: Apocalypse. 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. Reprising their roles from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past are Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggert), Evan Peters (Quicksilver). New cast members include Oscar Isaac as the villainous Apocalypse, Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler.
X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters on May 27, 2016, putting it up against Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass, setting up what could be a huge box office showdown. This latest X-Men movie will close out the prequel trilogy that includes X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. The studio is also working on the spinoff Gambit, which will start production later this year, while also developing The New Mutants.
Bryan Singer is directing X-Men: Apocalypse from a script by Simon Kinberg, based on a story the director and screenwriter crafted together with X2: X-Men: United writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty. Check out the latest poster featuring the entire cast. Hopefully, we'll get a new trailer soon, which is rumored to reveal one very big surprise!
