The cinematic 'X-Men' universe has been running (mostly) strong for a decade and a half now with Bryan Singer at the reins for the most part. His latest and fourth (ninth total) installment in the franchise will hit theaters Memorial Day weekend in the form of 'X-Men: Apocalypse' which looks to followup the events of 'Days of Future Past' and continue the trend of convoluted blockbuster titles.
This film will follow the mutants that we have known for so long as they attempt to combat the first mutant ever, Apocalypse who is garnering a following of his own with the hope of making mutants the dominant race on earth. We will see the return of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and plenty of others from the most recent films and will see the addition of Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Olivia Munn (Psylocke), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) and Alexandra Shipp (Storm) along with my other fresh faces.
While this trailer has plenty of action, apocalyptic imagery and glimpses of fresh faces, I can't say I'm entirely satisfied with it. Beyond sort of establishing tone this trailer does little for me. I hardly get an idea of the scale of Apocalypse's powers, have almost no idea of the story (I filled gaps in myself) and see some pretty rough looking CGI. This is only the first trailer for a movie that is over five months away so all of this can be addressed before release but this is all we can base anything on at the moment.
What are your thoughts? Does Apocalypse look dope as shit or kind of like a Power Rangers villain? Is Fassbender going total grunge with the flannel even though this takes place in the 80s? Does butter side down really taste better on toast? Are you tired of seeing Jennifer Lawrence give speeches while standing in a ruined city surrounded by broken down buildings?
