Fanboys can rejoice — X-Men: Apocalypse has finally been released and it will make an excellent addition to your superhero movies library. X-Men: Apocalypse is the third installment of the rebooted X-Men series. In this third film, humans continue to hate and fear mutants. Mutants are divided over this issue. One side, led by Apocalypse, believes mutants are superior and deserve to rule over all humans. The other side, led by Professor Xavier, believes mutants and humans can co-exist peacefully together. BTW, Stan Lee, the creator of Mavel Comics, makes another cameo. There’s also an extra scene at the end of the credits (fast forward to the very end). X-Men: Apocalypse is available now on Digital HD, Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and DVD. Note: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent me the movie for review on my blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.
New Blu-ray and DVD movies this week include X-Men: Apocalypse (Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy), American Horror Story: Hotel (Lady Gaga), Swiss Army Man (Daniel Radcliffe), The Purge: Election Year (Elizabeth Mitchell), and Vikings Season 4 (Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen). I’ve already seen the new X-Men film (review) and season four of Vikings, so I’m hoping to see the other new releases. They all sound interesting — especially American Horror Story (Lady Gaga is in it). BTW, the trailer for Swiss Army Man looks pretty funny.
