80s...Mutants living in the 80s! X-Men Apocalypse (2016) trailer sure looks busy

There is a bit of dialogue in this trailer that could be considered as a spoiler.

What I am still missing here is the genuine period atmosphere (the film takes place in the 80s) which made the last two movies so refreshing. I hope there is some of that in the full movie.

The sixth instalment (spinoffs not included) of the X-Men-saga hits theatres May 27th.

    Exactly. I was hoping to see Jennifer Lawrence dressed in lycra, complete with leggings and a sweatband. Actually, she does have a big 80s perm.

  • Dee-abolik

    I want Wolverine with a mullet.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Hell, yeah!

  • I_am_better

    Ah. Snikt.
    You’re right – nothing really says 80’s here. Would’ve expected a bit more kitchy wardrobe.

  • I_am_better

    They like to get the landmarks.

  • Stalk?
  • Dee-abolik

    oh lord, when will he learn when to keep his mouth shut?

  • Stalk?

    If JLaw is leading the X-men, I’m not seeing this shit!
    Cyclops or GTFFO!

  • Stalk?

    Perhaps after this incident…?

    Never gets old. XD

  • Dee-abolik

    Embarrassing… sometimes you have to blank out the private persona to stay a fan of someone. Art vs. artist, etc…

  • Stalk?

    I always knew Glen was batshit but he was a genius when he helped to shape and form the Misfits. Here’s his response to Louis Farrakhan’s rhetoric back in the day. LMAO Glen is Cray-cray alright.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    needs 80’s soundtrack

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    What an idiot. He totally deserved that. The big guy was calmly stating his case until he got pushed. And let’s say nothing of the pathetic sycophants braying at the end.

  • Stalk?

    I’m just disappointed that Danzig didn’t get a chance to use his so called “Jeet Kwon Do” skills. LMMFAO

  • Toruk_Makto

    They turned Cyclops into one of the X-babies. At this point the “25” year old Mystique is the seasoned vet. This is what happens when shit-stains are in control of once great characters.

    I can’t wait for the “New Mutants” to hit the scene. The only way for it to make sense is if they all rolled up on Big Wheels.

    X-men movie producers/creatives/executives —– I FUCKING DESPISE YOU ALL!
    If I ever come across any of you fuckers in person my next stop will be the correctional center….but it will be worth it. 🙂

  • Dee-abolik

    I thought the same.

  • Negasonic Middle Aged Warhead

    CGI Reagan calling mutants an evil empire.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    LOL.

    You really wanted this guy as Wolvie? Can’t take him seriously after that thrashing. Wolverine is short and hotheaded, but he isn’t a pussy.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Yep. They’re slowly turning X-Men into a YA franchise.

    Next stop: X-Babies. For real. Actual X-Men kids. They have to capture the pre-teen market, too.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Also needs a Yamaha DX7 synth soundtrack, and some New Wave songs like in the first Terminator. And maybe a Phil Collins ballad during the end credits.

  • Stalk?

    LMAO but i still have love for The Misfits and Samhain!

  • Only if it’s Depeche Mode, U2 or Vangelis.

  • Mullets are evil.

  • Dee-abolik

    Yes they are.

  • I_am_better

    They kinda have shoulder pads on those uniforms – can that count as an 80’s fashion thingy…?

  • CoolHandJuke

    Does Jubilee go to town on herself in this?

  • Speaking of Sophie Turner, Game Of Thrones returned!!! Yeah!!!

  • KilliK

    yeah, more rapes !!!

  • KilliK

    more like a 90s thing..

  • KilliK

    will it be as boring as the previous one?

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    What? I remember criticizing DOFP when it was released, and you coming to its defense! Did you change your mind about it?

  • KilliK

    well, a bit. I enjoy the movie but it still misses the spectacle of the comics.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    And it’s the Mystique and Wolverine show. And, going forward, increasingly so the former. The Cow has become the new Jackman.

  • KilliK

    unfortunately, that seems to be case. :/

  • May karma never knocks on your door.

  • Toruk_Makto

    I’m fairly certain he was just being facetious. Giving the show a little poke..no pun intended.

  • It’s not the intention, its the tone.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    His tone was sarcastic. And, let’s face it, that show has become notorious for its exaggerated and unrelenting nihilism and misery, now almost to the point of parody.

  • Toruk_Makto

    Oddly, that’s one of the reasons I stopped watching it.

    A lot of harsh things went down in the books but I never got the impression that these things happened simply for ‘shock’ value or because George thought it would just be cool. There seemed to always be an underlying (meaning/message/lesson) to take from such events (for example…a character is given several signs they should get out of dodge..but due to a character flaw decide not too..etc).

    I found that whenever Benioff and Weiss’s sensibilities were transparent in the writing that this was not the case. In fact…it struck me as the exact opposite. They seemed to revel in making things ‘shocking’ but failed to provide any associative reasoning behind such acts. Which, ultimately, in my opinion, left the events hollow.

    Bottom line I don’t like their writing and don’t appreciate their sensibilities…which frankly, strike me as a rather juvenile.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Yeah, the show has become ludicrous. That’s what happens when you deviate from the source material and give inferior writers free reign to make up their own shit. Reminds me of the Jackson/Walsh/Boyens Hobbit situation.

    The producers got greedy. They should’ve waited for Martin to finish his books, no matter how long it took. Although, I suppose most of the show’s fans have never bothered to read them so perhaps only a small percentage of viewers will even know or care about that.

  • KilliK

    yep.

  • KilliK

    exactly.

  • KilliK

    btw, Asi, your boy Duncan looks like that he has created an epic fantasy movie masterpiece. I saw the new trailer of Warcraft which they showed exclusively in PAX, and it was fucking amazeballs.

  • Toruk_Makto

    I find I’m quite excited about the movie. I hope it’s as good as it looks.

  • KilliK
  • Seeing is believing. But i’m far, far more interested in MUTE.

  • It didn’t read sarcastic but enthusiastic.
    And i’m sure he can tie his own shoe laces.
    And as for complains about the dark tone being almost parodic, no, that’s the tone of the show SINCE THE BEGINING. That’s what the show is. The show certainly is not “My Little Pony”. And that dark and nihilistic tone is what seperates it from the rest, it’s what makes it great.

  • KilliK

    are you gonna watch Warcraft if it’s good?
    and yeah, Mute looks interesting. But I dont understand how he ll pull out a Blade Runner-sque world with the budget of an indie film.

  • KilliK

    if rapes make it so great, as you say, then you must understand why you and I both share the same enthusiasm for this show. So, why were you so annoyed in your first reply to me above? dont you like the show for being dark,nihilistic and rapey?

  • If the word of mouth is good, i might check it out. I know next to nothing about Warhammer, never played the game, i know nothing about the mythology of the saga, etc, etc. The trailer made me think the movie was done professionally and it sure looks like they spent a lot of money making the movie but that’s it, i’m neither warm nor cold to the movie.
    But it’s MUTE that’s really catching my attention.

  • Bop

    It is unbelievable how much impact the DX-7 made in the 80s. I have it at home and I will never part with it. That thing can make crazy sounds.

  • Bop

    It doesn’t. It is right up there with Uwe Boll vs The Critics.

  • Bop

    Danzig, master of the Jeet Kwon KO.

  • Bop

    X-Babies?

    Now I will have nightmares about it becoming true. Thanks, Turd.

  • KilliK

    it’s Warcraft, not Warhammer.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

  • Well, there you have it, my point exactly.

  • KilliK

    no, I dont have it, what’s your point?

  • Stalk?

    Well, at least Boll can defend himself. Glenn acted like a snotty brat only to get “schooled”!!

  • Stalk?

    BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

  • That i don’t know much about Warcraft. And by that i mean very, very little.

  • Bop

    If I didn’t live in this pussy country in which every punch is seen as assault I would definitely Danzig some motherfuckers. Way too many Danzigs around these parts.

  • Bop

    I am scared shitless, dude.

  • Stalk?

    Hahahahahah!?
    That’s a good term for getting KO’d!
    There’s been times i waned to Danzig a motherfucker too.

  • Full Frontal Throttle

    This is starting to show some promise. Marvel heroes once again kicking it and sticking it! BOOOOM

  • southafricanguy

    Looks fucking awsome to me. Bring it on
