X-Men: Apocalypse

Story by Jack Foley

TWENTIETH Century Fox have released a new promotional image for X-Men: Apocalypse.

Entitled Defend, the poster focuses on the heroes who will line up against Apocalypse (played by Oscar Isaac) and The Four Horsemen. These include a now bald Professor X (James McAvoy) and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence), who feature prominently on the poster.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped 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 (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.

X-Men: Apocalypse will be released in cinemas and IMAX across the UK and Ireland on May 18, 2016.
