Out This Weekend: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ 

WATCH: Jennifer Lawrence, Jimmy Fallon and John Oliver Play ‘True Confessions’
Did JLaw just admit to taking an Ambien before filming a scene in the Hunger Games series?

Here’s all the details on this star-studded mutant showdown.

Every trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse has explosions, lots of ominous one-liners, missiles launching and Jennifer Lawrence looking pretty amazing (when she isn’t blue). But what’s the movie about? We’ve got all the info you need, just in case you and your buds decide to check out this summer superhero flick.


Who’s in it?

This cast is kinda ridiculous: Lawrence, James McAvoy, Sophie Turner, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Olivia Munn, Evan Peters and Tye Sheridan.


What’s it about?

The world’s first human, who goes by Apocalypse, has risen with a plan to annihilate the human race and restore balance to the planet. Professor Xavier and his X-Men must reunite to stop him before it’s too late.

Why should I care?

With a host of incredible actors and the franchise’s original director Bryan Singer at the helm, you’re going to get a wild ride filled with everything the summer movie-going experience is about: stunning special effects, a devious villain and lots of spandex.
