…and a dramatic scene starring Michael Fassbender that made him and Simon Kinberg cry.
X-Men:Apocalypse which will be the last movie in the franchise will premier on May 27,2016. Director Bryan Singer reveals exciting facts about the film during the San Pedro International Film Festival last October 9, 2015.
Watch the video below:
- The film is longer compared to the rest of the movies in the franchise
The X-Men movies, I usually I keep under two hours, but this one I may actually let be a longer movie because it’s sort of a wrap-up of six movies.
2. There’s an homage at the end of the trailer
There’s a scene – it’s gonna get spoiled because that decided to use it in the trailer which comes out, like six months, but it’s a really cool trailer – but the [homage] is kind of a wrap up of six movies. So, it might run a little bit long, but it’s not boring.”
3. Charles Xavier and Moira MacTaggert’s romance will be rekindled.
4. New characters are revealed
Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Sophie Turner as young Jean Grey, Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse and other of new characters.
5. Michael Fassbender made everyone cry for good reason
“Michael Fassbender did something so wonderful in this movie… We’re at the end of the scene, and he asked me not to call cut and when the scene was over, he continued and did something that made me cry in the tent; I’ve never done that before. The head of my company grabbed a Kleenex. Simon Kinberg, the writer who has no emotions at all, actually became emotional. It was so beautiful, I’ve never seen an actor do this for me and [Fassbender] just took the scene to a whole ‘nother level. It’s a heartbreaking scene, not a typical comic book movie scene at all, so let’s hope it makes the cut. But after he did it, I went up to him, hugged him and said ‘Thank you, Michael, for that gift. Now I need you to do it again.’ And he did it, and [frick]ing rocked it again… with full emotion.”
6. Trailer comes in six months…wait, what?! I think Singer mean six weeks, yeah, six weeks.
Synopsis: Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-Men: Apocalypse, opening in theaters everywhere May 27, 2016. 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 (Michael 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 help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from total destruction.
