Apocalypse' Box Office

Apocalypse' Box Office

It's a good thing the X-Men and the Avengers and all the other superheroes zipping through the multiplexes these days exist in (mostly) parallel universes. Despite the diminishing returns of the X-Men series, they have accomplished at least one inarguably impressive feat: taking a supporting antagonist like Mystique and transforming her into a great, complex leading character, worthy of her place in Apocalypse as a mutant role model to Xavier's gifted youngsters. After all, now that Magneto has been possessed by Apocalypse, that would likely shake things up for the X-Men of the future again.

Now, during a recent podcast appearance to promote X-Men: Apocalypse, writer and producer Simon Kinberg opened up on where he believes they may have gone wrong with it. So, there's no reason why he coulndn't do the same to get the current X-Men cast-who are currently in the eighties-in sync with Trank's modern-day Fantastic Four. Sure, these two characters are intrinsically linked to the X-Men and the franchise is essentially founded on their opposing principles, but there comes a time to get off of the shoulders of giants and begin walking your own path. Now in post-production on his X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer is back on Twitter today with a peek at his editing bay.

So we thought it would be interesting to take them to Alkali Lake, and that they would naturally, potentially… that the Weapon X program would be there, and maybe that was a place to find Wolverine. I just read on facebook that the rebooted Fantastic Four X-Men: Apocalypse Online movie will be set in the same universe as the X-Men: First Class movies with the possibility of a tie-in movie ala The Avengers. Holy Hell (2016) , a documentary about a man who spent nearly 25 years as the videographer for a cult, is at 58 percent.

When it becomes clear this rock-beast cannot be stopped, the surviving Chechen rebels make a run for it - and that's when a hail of gunfire finishes them off. The X-Men has been one of the most popular superhero franchises in comics for more than a generation, and the big screen adaptations helped kick off the current wave of superhero films, including X-Men: Apocalypse, which arrives in North American theaters this weekend. The world of the X-Men is packed with relatable themes, from the simple school setting to more complex ideas about alienation and persecution.

Granted, X-Men kickstarted the current cinematic superhero revolution to much acclaim but after the initial two entries in the franchise, public and critical reception began to dwindle, as did box office returns. If we don't have a human and relatable anchor to these fantastical stories, these fantastical CGI heavy movies tend to feel hollow and pointless - a trap that Apocalypse fell into at times. The sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past," which was a mutant-origins time-travel saga, Apocalypse" begins — after beginning in ancient Egypt, that is — in 1983, 10 years after most of the events of Past." Those had resulted in an uneasy détente between boring regular humanity and the superpowered mutants who walked among them.
