The good folks over at 20th Century Fox have unleashed a new video featurette for their upcoming mutant-filled movie X-Men: Apocalypse, centering on the Four Horsemen. That'd be Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Angel (Ben Hardy), Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender).

The video features interviews with director Bryan Singer and stars Michael Fassbender and Olivia Munn, who chat about Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) and his new posse. There's also some cool snippets of new footage in there to help while away the time before we can finally get to see the movie.

Have a look:


Taking place in the 1980s, X-Men: Apocalypse is the last in the new trilogy of films kicked off by X-Men: First Class and followed by X-Men: Days of Future Past.

It will introduce younger versions of Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Angel (Hardy) and Storm (Shipp) as well as introduce new characters Jubilee (Lana Condor) and Psylocke (Munn).

Apocalypse also sees the return of Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Fassbender), Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne), Havok (Lucas Till), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Quicksilver (Evan Peters). Oscar Isaac will, of course, play the movie’s villain, En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped 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 the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens May 27, 2016.
