“X-Men: Apocalypse” is still shooting in Montreal, Canada and boasts of an epic third installment in the trilogy that started with “X-Men: First Class.” Even though the movie has been filming for about five weeks, a rough cut was shown at the San Diego Comic-Con and received a unanimous applause from everyone who saw it. However, a pirated copy of it also made it online. Read on.
According to MNR Daily, fans were completely blown away when an exclusive footage of the movie was cut into a trailer and shown at the Hall H at the event. The footage was enough to get audiences excited about the movie. It was perhaps that was the reason why the footage probably taken from a smart phone also made it online. The panel was attended by everyone who is a part of the movie and were accompanied with Hugh Jackman, Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg. Before the footage was shown, Mr. Singer mentioned that the footage was an unfinished one, but that did not stop fans from applauding for it.
Leaving aside the leaked footage, one question still keeps popping up in every fan’s mind. What can be expected from the movie? How are the characters in the movie looking like? Answers to questions like these have been given by Entertainment Weekly (EW) in their upcoming issue where from the first look to what will happen in the movie has been described.
According to EW, almost 10 years will have passed since the events of the previous installment. Charles, Erik, and Raven will be busy with their own lives but only before their paths crossing each other again. It was because a God-like mutant, who will awaken from his Egyptian tomb, declared the world as a chaotic one where war and destruction is prevalent. As reported earlier, he will choose his four horsemen namely Psylocke, Storm, Angel and Erik himself who has been leading a quite life in Poland. As soon as Erik comes in the equation, Raven who has been on a mission to rescue other mutants starts to seek and protect him.
That’s when the reunion between Charles and herself is said to happen as Charles is teaching other mutants to control their abilities. What follows is an epic mutant war where fans will hope to see Charles, Erik and Raven along with other mutants united to fight against the megalomaniac Apocalypse.
