The Four Horsemen assemble in X-Men: Apocalypse featurette

The trailers for X-Men: Apocalypse (opens in new tab) have generally done a good job of showing the power of Apocalypse and his four horsemen - Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Angel (Ben Hardy), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), and Psylocke (Olivia Munn). With the film just over a month away from release, 20th Century Fox have unveiled a new behind-the-scenes featurette giving us a little more info on Apocalypse and his helpers, along with a few snippets of new footage. Check it out below...

X-Men: Apocalypse has a lot going for it; visually it looks spectacular, and big names like Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, James McAvoy, and Jennifer Lawrence mean it has one of the best casts you'll see in a movie, comic book or otherwise. As a big fan of Days of Future Past, I'm curious to see how this one plays out.

Directed by Bryan Singer and starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Munn, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Rose Byrne, and Nicholas Hoult, X-Men: Apocalypse will be released in UK cinemas on May 18, 2016 before making its way to US theatres on May 27, 2016.
