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.
Watch the X-Men Apocalypse campus tour video after the jump.
This video unfortunately isn’t nearly as cool as the one used to tease the movie before it hit theaters. It mostly just uses footage from X-Men: Apocalypse, but just with a 4:3 aspect ratio and artificially created tracking problems and dated graphics. It’s still amusing in just how cheesy the video is in its attempt to recruit students for the school, but it could have been better, which is exactly what most people thought of X-Men: Apocalypse.
If this isn’t enough retro X-Men action to tickle your fancy, check out the recently revealed deleted scene from X-Men: Apocalypse which features Cyclops, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler and Jubilee going to a shopping mall and living the wondrous lives of teens in the 1980s. It’s a scene that should have stayed in the movie, even if it feels like it belongs in a John Hughes take on X-Men instead of the movie we ended up seeing on the big screen.
X-Men: Apocalypse is now available Digital HD and hits Blu-ray and DVD on October 4th.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
