Film Plot Summary

 

Film Notables (Awards, Facts, etc.)

The seventh installment in the X-Men film franchise - a sequel to the last two X-Men films from 2006 and 2011. The priciest and most complicated X-Men film to date. The superhero film combined the casts of both the original X-Men Trilogy (including Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Prof. Charles Xavier, and Ian McKellen as Erik Lehnsheer/Magneto) and Matthew Vaughn's prequel X-Men: First Class (2011) (featuring James McAvoy as a younger Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, and Jennifer Lawrence as Raven/Mystique).

The story involved time-travel - the X-Men had to alter the past to save the future - a dystopia ruled by robots (known as Sentinels) who were rounding up mutants in camps for extermination. A distant-future Wolverine consciousness was sent back to the 1970s by the X-Men to prevent war, by brokering peace and uniting friends-turned-adversaries Charles Xavier and Magneto, in order to prevent the rise of the Sentinels.

This was director Bryan Singer's third X-Men film, following his helming of the 2000 and 2003 films.

With a number of new mutant characters, including Bishop (Omar Sy) who could absorb energy, Blink (Fan Bingbng) with the ability to open teleportation portals, Quicksilver (Evan Peters) - a 70s-era mutant with super-speed, Sunspot (Adan Canto) who could harness solar power with powerful heat blasts, and Warpath (Booboo Stewart) - a Native American mutant warrior (aka James Proudstar) with super-speed and strength.

With a production budget of $200 million, and box-office gross receipts of $224 million (domestic) and $714 million (worldwide).

The next film planned in the series was X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), again directed by Bryan Singer.
