Join Oli and Luke in this week’s Flickering Myth Podcast for…
…something a bit different. Oli and Luke went on their first podcast date together, watching a preview screening of Warcraft, followed by a Q+A with director Duncan Jones and actors Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton and Toby Kebbell. This means they had to record the episode upstairs in a generic coffee shop in London Waterloo Railway Station.
Like a football match with extra time, this is an episode of two halves: firstly, Oli and Luke’s immediate thoughts on Warcraft – the release that was meant to kickstart the video game movie craze – and secondly, a spoiler-FULL review of X-Men: Apocalypse. And then, for the extra time…
POST-CREDITS SEQUENCE – Oli sits down with X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer to talk about difficult third movies, whether he makes fun of X-Men: The Last Stand, and how long did it take to shoot the Quicksilver scene?
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
