PRESS STATEMENT FROM 20TH CENTURY FOX:
The ultimate X-Men villain rises in the biggest battle of beloved superheroes in X-Men: Apocalypse as seen in the latest official international trailer reveal.

X-Men: Apocalypse will bring the audience into a world never-before-seen as they try to stop their greatest nemesis in his plan of global destruction. Being the first original mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, Apocalypse is also the most powerful who amassed many of the other mutants’ powers making him immortal and invincible.

To stop Apocalypse’s path of global destruction, Raven/Mystique and Professor X must convince Magneto to abandon Apocalypse and join them and a new team of young X-Men.
An epic showdown is about to happen in cinemas nationwide on May 18, 2016 (in the Philippines) when the X-men confronts their most legendary and most powerful enemy in X-Men: Apocalypse, from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
