Good news everyone. IMAX Corporation have confirmed that Marvel Studios upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse will be released and digitally re-mastered into their mesmerising IMAX 3D format in virtually all major territories, including: Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Taiwan, South Korea and the U.K.
Speaking on behalf of IMAX, their Senior Executive Vice President Greg Foster explained: “After the record-setting worldwide success of Deadpool earlier this year, we are thrilled to keep the momentum going with our partners at Fox by offering overseas movie-goers the opportunity to see X-Men: Apocalypse — the most thrilling installment yet of this global and iconic franchise — in IMAX 3D”.
Set for release on 19 May, the movie will take place ten years after the events of 2013’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Since their exposure to the world the mutants have received a mixed reception; with some believing they are holy figures. Because of this, worshipers reawaken the immortal mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who possesses God-like powers. Therefore, it becomes the X-Men’s responsibility to prevent this terrifying being from destroying all life on Earth.
Returning mutants include James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and Evan Peters (Quicksilver). New cast members will also be present, such as: Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Oilivia Munn and Tye Sheridan who will play Storm, Psylocke, Jean and Cyclops.
