Back before X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, 20th Century Fox delivered a retro commercial for Xavier’s School for the Gifted, looking like it was ripped straight off a VHS tape. The video featured Jubilee, and she probably got just as much screen time there as she did in the final movie despite being all over the marketing materials leading up to the movie. Now Xavier’s School for the Gifted gets one more retro push with another viral video arriving just in time to promote the arrival of X-Men: Apocalypse on home video.

It’s only been four months since X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, but it feels like it’s been much longer. That might be a testament to just how forgettable of an X-Men sequel it was, even though I did find enough to enjoy in it to keep me from simply hating it. Now we’re being reminded of the film again as it’s now available on Digital HD and will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD on October 4th, and the release of the film on home video has provided us with confirmation of one particular detail in the forthcoming Wolverine 3.
The Marvel Comics villain Mr. Sinister has been confirmed to be a villain in Wolverine 3, which as we already know will mark Hugh Jackman‘s last time playing the adamantium-clad mutant. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

In a summer filled with high profile duds, X-Men: Apocalypse reigns supreme. At least Independence Day: Resurgence was audacious and insane and totally bonkers. At least Suicide Squad was bad in ways that generate great conversations. Bryan Singer’s fourth X-Men movie, and the eighth film in the franchise overall, is the kind of movie that takes two and a half hours of your time and exits your brain while you’re still watching it. It’s the kind of bad movie that doesn’t even have the decency to leave an impact.
Although the Blu-ray and DVD for X-Men: Apocalypse doesn’t arrive until next month, a deleted scene from the film has arrived online and it’s…well, it’s interesting. I wouldn’t call it a good scene, but it’s the kind of weirdness that the final cut desperately needs.
