Filming won’t begin until next spring, and the movie won’t hit theaters until the following year, but 20th Century Fox is starting the ball rolling very, very, very early on “X-Men: Apocalypse.” And that it happens to coincide with the upcoming release of “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” on home video is probably not a coincidence. Welcome to Movie Marketing 101, folks. But we will say, we do like the care and effort that went into this four minute viral video.
Running like a truther documentary you might stumble across on YouTube, the clip gathers up a bunch of science types to ruminate on the next stage of human evolution….in other words, mutants. But of course, it isn’t long until talk turns to the threat humanity faces when the next thing in the evolutionary chain comes along. This has been the long-running thread of the X-Men movies, so why stop now?
