Can you guess which movie the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer is attached to?

November 11th, 2015 by Matt Gault Comments


We know you’re already uber-excited about for the next instalment in the X-Men franchise. After X-Men: First Class and Days of Future Past, we’re itching to see Bryan Singer’s latest effort in the hugely popular mutant franchise.

But, if you’re seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens (who isn’t?), you have one more reason to get excited as it’s been revealed that the first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer will be shown before the film.

With ​the J.J. Abrams movie expected to achieve the widest worldwide release of all time, interest in the upcoming ​X-Men​ instalment will considerably intensify when its promo arrives alongside the sci-fi next month. This is a huge score for the X-Men crew as basically everyone in the world will see their trailer before Star Wars.

The film’s writer/producer Simon Kinberg told ​Collider​: “I can in fact confirm that information. Our first trailer will be on Star Wars: The Force Awakens​.

“It’s our first thing out there so it is somewhat of a teaser but it’s certainly longer than a minute and it has a ton of cool stuff in it.
