A mixed critical reaction is unlikely to stop the latest X-Men movie being a big hit at the box office, as it closes the ‘First Class’ trilogy focused on the the younger incarnations of the characters.

As expected, the movie will be getting a steelbook release, and HMV have the UK exclusive, with pre-orders live now. The release date is still TBC, though it will contain the 3D version of the movie in additon to 2D.

Pre-order: HMV

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-Men: Apocalypse. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

    No word on a 3D disc being included? It was for The Days of Future Past Steelbook so I really hope they include 3D again.

    So-called “Critics” have absolutely no idea what makes a good movie these days. It’s like they have some special formula that dictates a score based on who directed it and who stars in it and they don’t even watch the movie. IMDB 8.1 says all I need to know about this and as always, the critics have it wrong… again.
