'X-Men: Apocalypse' cast party celebrates end of filming
Bryan Singer didn’t cancel the apocalypse, but it’s mostly wrapped. The filmmaker announced on social media that the main unit work on X-Men: Apocalypse has finished, and while there’s still some second unit filming to be done, the stars partied it up.
Olivia Munn, who plays Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, posted photos from the film’s wrap party on Instagram. “A director and his #horsemen,” she wrote along with a photo of herself posing with Ben Hardy (Angel/Archangel), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), and Singer. The three actors and Michael Fassbender (Magneto) portray the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, the main mutants enlisted to join En Sabah Nur (Oscar Isaac).
Elsewhere, Munn posed with Hardy and her trainers, Karine Lemieux and Ken C. Tran. These folks taught Munn those impressive katana and martial arts moves.
As an added bonus to the evening’s festivities, a list of custom cocktails were offered. Singer posted a photo of the menu, which included drinks called The Apocalypse, The Cyclops, and The Mystique, among others.
X-Men: Apocalypse also stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Sophie Turner (Jean Grey). The film takes place in the ’80s when an ancient mutant, Apocalypse, arises with a mission of global disaster. According to Singer’s tweets, there’s still a couple more weeks of second unit shooting to do before post-production.
The film is set for release on May 27, 2016. Check out more photos from Singer, Munn, and Shipp below.
