X-Men: Apocalypse (Official Trailer)

Back in February, Dennis brought you his thoughts on the new X-Men: Apocalypse and, let’s just say he was a bit, umm…non-plussed. And I agree! Not only is the whole idea that FOX is making the first X-Men­ movies null and void pretty weird, irritating and annoying, it remains unclear as to why they are doing this. Is it in service of ingénue Jennifer Lawrence and her Raven/Mystique character? I hope not as that’s never been all that popular of a character and honestly, Rebecca Romijn was way better. Anyway…

I also didn’t like that first trailer because it honestly looks like a video game. Particularly the shots of the various X-Men showing off their powers with really, really bad CGI backgrounds. However, this new trailer adds a bit more backstory and some depth and that cuts down the offensiveness of the aforementioned CGI. We also get a lot more Oscar Isaac as the titular Apocalypse. Still, I dunno,. Looks pretty shabby. I guess we won’t have to wait long to find out as the film drops on May 27.
