A couple days ago, 20th Century Fox gave us an amazing poster of the FOUR horsemen and women, Magneto, Psylocke, Storm and Archangel. Along with their savior, En Sabah Nur, also known as Apocalypse. They are doing the right kind of promoting, especially since Apocalypse accompanies the X-Men in the title. It's only right to advertise their menacing opponent in this poster, which is flushed to appear as if it were a comic itself.
Then they gave us another, instead with Professor X, Beast, Nightcrawler, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Quicksilver and Mystique. Begs to ask where is Jubilee though? But it delivered well.
Today, they've graced us with a new trailer. Here.
X-Men Apocalypse picks up in 1983, where Apocalypse has awaken to stop the humans from ruling. First, he finds Ororo Munroe (Storm) in her home land Cairo, taking her under his arm from there. Alexandra Shipp states this to Collider.
SHIPP: Yes, yes I do. Which is the first, kind of my first opening scene, is you see me in Cairo, and he’s speaking whatever ancient language because he’s just woken up and I’m speaking Arabic. I’m trying to communicate with him, and then he has this moment where he figures out where he is, what’s happened, what date it is, and he … Apocalypse doesn’t need to say much. All he has to do is just be like, “I’m here, I’m what you’ve been looking for”. And you just feel it right in your gut, and you’re like, “Right, you are exactly what I’ve been looking for. You are exactly what I need right now.” I think that he can see that, and he could also see the power. I feel like when you’re the most powerful, you’re also the most self-conscious about it.
Apocalypse aims to destroy what humankind have built. Like these images of Jean Grey's vision in the first trailer. Around 00:07.
