X-Men: Apocalypse

I would like to watch X-Men Apocalypse starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Alexandra Shipp,Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn and Lucas Till. It features an immortal psychic mutant named En Sabah Nur who ruled ancient Egypt until he was betrayed by his worshippers, and entombed alive. En Sabah Nur’s lieutenants, the Four Horsemen, die protecting and preserving him. He is revived in 1983, but decides to destroy the world and remake it in his image. En Sabah Nur begins recruiting new Horsemen, beginning with Cairo pickpocket Ororo Munroe.(storm)

In Berlin, while investigating an underground fight club, mutant Raven Darkhölme (mystique) discovers champion Angel, who possesses a pair of large feathered wings on his back, and the Nightcrawler, who can teleport. Raven rescues Nightcrawler. En Sabah Nur then recruits Psylocke who leads him to Angel, whose injured wings Nur replaces with metallic ones. Meanwhile, Alex Summers (Havoc) introduces his teenage younger brother Scott, (Cyclops) to Professor Charles Xavier’s at his educational insitutute in Westchester County, New York, where he meets Hank McCoy and Xavier’s protégé Jean Grey. Raven also brings Nightcrawler to the institute, and informs Xavier about the threat of En Sabah Nur, leading Xavier and Alex to consult with Moira MacTaggert.

In Poland, Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto) is almost caught for his part in the attack on the White House. Sadly his family are tragically killed in the crossfire. En Sabah Nur later approaches the infuriated Erik and takes him to Auschwitz, where he upgrades his powers. Erik destroys the camp and joins Sabah Nur, completing his new Four Horsemen. En Sabah Nur hacks into Xavier’s mind while Xavier is using the mutant-locating computer Cerebro, and later arrive in the mansion which is destroyed and kidnaps Xavier. Peter Maximoff (Quicksilver) manages to evacuate the mansion, however Alex dies. William Stryker’s forces subsequently arrest Hank, Raven, Peter, and Moira, believing them to be involved in En Sabah Nur’s attack, and take them to the Weapon X facility however they are rescued byScott, Jean and Nightcrawler with help from Stryker’s brainwashed experiment Logan, whose mind Jean partially restores.

En Sabah Nur asks, Erik to use his powers to control Earth’s magnetic poles, causing widespread destruction across the planet and mass casualties. Luckily the others arrive in Cairo and battle the Horsemen, managing to rescue the professor. Finally Erik (Magneto), Storm, Professor Xavier and Jean Grey combine forces to battle Apocalypse (En Sabah Nur)in an exciting showdown.
