New X-Men Apocalypse trailer attached to The Force Awakens

The first teaser-trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse will be released alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Co-writer and producer Simon Kingberg confirmed: “Our first trailer will be on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s our first thing out there so it is somewhat of a teaser but it’s certainly longer than a minute and it has a ton of cool stuff in it.”

A short teaser-trailer has already been shown at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, but a new trailer will appear in theatres in the UK on December 17 – when the new Star Wars film is released.

A trailer for Captain America: Civil War is also set to be shown before screenings of the seventh instalment of the sci-fi franchise.

The latest X-Men movie will see the eponymous villain, Apocalypse, as the main antagonist to Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and his team. Apocalypse will be played by Oscar Isaac, who is also set to star in the new Star Wars film as Poe Dameron, a resistance pilot.

In the film, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) will take on a new leadership role within the X-Men team. Kingberg said: “I think the movie explores her struggle, which is sort of the result of Days of Future Past. If you think about the end of Days of Future Past, in front of the entire world she stops Magneto and saves the President and cabinet, and so this movie certainly explores 10 years later what it is to wear the mantle of that responsibility.”

The film was initially billed as a wrap-up of an X-Men trilogy. However, director Brian Singer has also reportedly described it as a “potential rebirth of younger, newer characters”. Among the new generation is a young Jean Grey, a role that will be assumed by Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in HBO series Game of Thrones
