Okay so the start of the week saw the final trailer to the third installment of the kinda rebootish X-Men trilogy hit the inter-web and I just gotta talk about it! So a word of warning if you have not seen the trailer there will be a spoiler warning in effect!The main plot from what I gather is this; Worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilization, the immortal Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) becomes the first and most powerful mutant. Awakening after thousands of years, he recruits the disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and other mutants to create a new world order. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Professor X (James McAvoy) and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) lead a team of young X-Men to stop their seemingly invincible nemesis from destroying mankind.
Nice premise if you ask me – we finally get to see a younger (better) version of the famous mutants bare arms and fight for what they believe in…. but again another trailer (which is the 4th) comes along and kinda… well spoils some exciting moments for me!
I’d advise you to take a gander because if you don’t you’ll be lost reading ahead! But yeah checkout Sansa ❤
Anyway it (as usual) starts off with the back story of both Raven and Prof X and there seems to be some trouble in the air, then we see the birth of blue Poe Dameron as he recruits his four horsemen, that’s cool we got that in the first trailer… all good so far!
Then we’ve got some teary eyed Fassbender clutching his possible bae, I know.. sad momo!
Then we are overpowered with EPIC destruction shots… that could have been saved for the release! (Sydney are fecked!)
Insert giant Blue Poe Dameron!
So, okay we ain’t doing too bad so far – maybe an epic shot or two that was unneeded but sure apparently trailers nowadays need their money shots! But then it goes downhill!
Right, I know in DOFP they hinted at the possibility that they might go down the root of having Magneto being Quicksilvers papa, which of coarse is really fun and made for a nice little Easter egg but why the hell have Fox gone and ruined it in the trailer here?
It makes no effing sense and ultimately leaves that previous Easter egg tasting rotten!
Moving on before I go all Hulk on their ass… we get even more epic unneeded money shots! Why because… money? I honestly don’t know!
Jesus, more action-explosion stuff.. like this is a nearly 3min trailer like? Don’t pull no BVS shite like!
…… God I spoke too soon.
Thats right, Byran Singer and co. have blown their load in the final trailer! Why oh why would you even give a whiff Wolverine showing up?
This trailer has left me feeling gutted – like is there actually anything to look forward to now? Any surprises?
I honestly would have lost my shit in the cinemas if I didn’t know – but now I will be expecting him to probably show his stubbly face in the third act!
Like, have studios not learned from our pals over at Warner Bros. who gave the entire BVS plot in the final trailer leading up?
I guess not.
Anyway, that my little Midweek Opinion. What did you think of the trailer? Yes? No? Maybe so?
Till next time – nerd out!
