The trailers for Twentieth Century Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse have gotten increasingly better as time has gone on, and the special effects have been improved… even if I’m still not a huge fan of the whole “Mystique becomes the leader of the X-Men” story beat in the last trailer. Following the announcement of a surprising Easter egg featured in the film as well, two new TV spots for Apocalypse have been released online, featuring a ton of new footage from the film.
Both of the international spots include new looks at Apocalypse and his mission, which seems to include taking down Professor X personally, and laying waste to the entire X-Men mansion. One of them also happens to feature a shot of Olivia Munn’s Psylocke conjuring up a dangerous psychic whip.
Check out both of the new spots below:
Still, even with all of the exciting new, younger versions of the main stable X-Men team members included, the thing that gets me the most excited for this film is Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse. After already establishing himself as one of the best dramatic actors working today, and flexing his blockbuster muscles in The Force Awakens - seeing him take on one of the most powerful and iconic villains in the X-Men comics is an exciting thought for anyone who’s been following Isaac’s career over the past few years.
… That psychic whip looks pretty cool too though.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set to hit theatres on May 27th.
