This week’s movie releases have a little bit of everything – superhero showdowns, historical dramas, and a horror-filled fright-fest to keep you on your toes. We take a closer-look at the movies you can watch this weekend:
Hyped-up as the biggest X-Men movie to date, X-Men: Apocalypse introduces the titular mutant who emerges after thousands of years to recruit followers in an attempt to purge the Earth and establish a new world order. Now mankind’s only hope of survival is Raven, Professor X and the team of young X-Men tasked with defeating the endlessly-powerful nemesis before he reigns supreme. James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult all return, along with Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Oscar Isaac joining the franchise to play Apocalypse.
