After sleeping for nearly a millennium, the world’s first mutant Apocalypse comes back to life. He is utterly displeased with the turn of events over the last few centuries. Since he can change bodies and imbibe fresh powers, he decides to take things in his hands. As he builds his army of four horsemen, Professor Xavier and his students are faced with the cumbersome task of stopping the evil force that will end the world as they know it.
At one point in the film, four of Xavier’s students watch Return Of The Jedi and one of them quips. Presumably, it was a word of caution for this film. The first hour is well crafted with ample thrills a young boy comes to terms with his powers and Magneto has denounced his former mutant life and is comfortable being the family man, content with singing lullabies to his daughter.
X-Men Apocalypse is directed by Bryan Singer and backed by Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Hutch Parker & Bryan himself under the production banners Marvel Entertainment, Bad Hat Harry Productions, The Donners’ Company, Hutch Parker Productions and Kinberg Genre. It features the ensemble cast that includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn & Lucas Till.
So far as per the prediction reports, X-Men: Apocalypse is expected to collect the opening business of near about 7.5 – 8 cr on Indian screens. With such great hype and promotions, it won’t be difficult for the movie to register good weekend total. But there is one more hurdle in its way, the much awaited Hindi movie Sarbjit, which is getting super positive reviews from critics after premiere.
