Shot on EPIC DRAGON: X-Men Apocalypse

20th Century Fox released the final trailer for the upcoming superhero blockbuster, X-Men: Apocalypse. Directed by Bryan Singer and shot in 3D on RED EPIC DRAGON by cinematographer, and longtime Singer collaborator, Newman Thomas Sigel. The trailer features new scenes and epic battles, including a comic book inspired duel between Cyclops and Storm, while also teasing us with a glimspe of a very familiar hero:

This time around the X-Men are up against the immortal Apocalypse (played by an unrecognizable Oscar Isaac). Worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilization and awakening after thousands of years, Apocalypse recruits the disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and other mutants to create a new world order. Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence in usual badass mode) leads the team of good-guy mutant warriors to save a captured Professor X and stop their seemingly invincible nemesis from destroying mankind.
