From executive producers Joe and Anthony Russo (Avengers: Infinity War), director Lee Toland Krieger (Riverdale), and showrunner Adam Targum (Banshee), […]
X-Men Apocalypse may not have been a critical darling like Logan or a surprise smash hit like Deadpool, but Alexendra Shipp, who played Storm in the film, is willing to give the X-Men cinematic universe another shot. In an interview with ScreenRant, Shipp shockingly revealed that she would be willing to accept money in exchange […]
I have not seen X-Men: Apocalypse yet. It’s not for lack of availability. Something about it just didn’t draw me in enough to go see it in the theater. And even though I have it on Blu-ray, I have yet to sit down to watch it. The negative comments I’ve been hearing about it keeps […]
A deleted scene from X-Men: Apocalypse hints at a more 80s-centric film as Scott, Jean, Kurt and Jubilee make it to the mall. It’s a light and fun scene with callbacks to shopping center staples like Payless Shoes and — though not identified as such — Sam Goody‘s. Also of note: Kurt’s interest in Nike […]
Jonathan Rich writes for BleedingCool … On May 19th, I saw a link on Bleeding Cool about a retro-styled infomercial touting the benefits of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. It was clearly an attempt at viral marketing by 20th Century Fox in advance of X-Men: Apocalypse, but what many who viewed the site may not have realized was that […]
While the critical response to X-Men: Apocalypse tends toward the negative, one entertaining sequence in the film is Quicksilver’s reprise of his Days of Future Past rescue. It’s a fun sequence that manages to overcome its similarities to the scene in the earlier film and become equal parts thrilling and campy. In a featurette released […]
X-Men: Apocalypse marks the ninth installment in Fox’s attempts to dial in the right combination to get a hit out of Marvel’s classic team of Mutants. Even going in with a strong desire to enjoy the latest installment wasn’t enough to prevent coming away with the sense of bleak resignation that Fox’s path just is […]
20th Century Fox has released a “vintage” ad touting to benefits of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters in Westchester County, New York. Lana Condor‘s Jubilee stars in the promo, which faithfully recreates an 1983 commercial with cutting edge production values and hip electronic music. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kniQrk9jw0[/youtube] As a fan of low-rent commercials from the era, this […]
Stan Lee has famously made cameo appearances in many of the Marvel films and TV shows over the years – even a few others such as Mallrats and Stan Lee’s Lucky Man. He has been mistaken for Hugh Hefner and Larry King, played his own postman character Willie Lumpkin and was refused entry to the […]
Featuring familiar characters, a conclusion to a two-movie old storyline and the “two steps forward/one step back” approach to human/mutant relations, X-Men: Apocalypse may be the most X-Men movie ever made. Well, short of yellow and blue uniforms, anyway. Set ten years after the main events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the film sees […]
It’s 8-Bit heaven at X-Men: Apocalypse‘s retro Spaceport Arcade. It’s like going back to old Starcade at Disneyland before they turned into into exhibit space. Or like that slightly smelly mall arcade of yore. The site presents three playable games that reflect the era. Mutant Conquest is an inspired mix of Pac-Man and Atari‘s Raiders […]

In a new UK poster for X-Men: Apocalypse, Professor X takes the center position and strikes a familiar pose that just shouts “To me, my X-Men” without actually saying it. Of course, the mixed eye-lines of the other characters draws curious attention to unseen foes. X-Men: Apocalypse opens in the UK on May 18th and […]
In a new featurette, actors Michael Fassbender and Olivia Munn, and director Bryan Singer, discuss the four horseman of Apocalypse as they will appear in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.
