First X-Men Apocalypse Trailer To Debut With Star Wars: The Force Awakens

It looks like Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to bring us a couple of exciting new trailers for next year's films: In October, we heard that the first Captain America: Civil War trailer would debut during the new Star Wars film; and now, we know that 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse will also debut with it.

This isn't the first time it was reported, but with Collider's quote from the studio, it seems to be officially confirmed. "I can in fact confirm that information," said executive producer Simon Kinberg, who also works on Star Wars. "Our first trailer will be on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It's our first thing out there so it is somewhat of a teaser but it's certainly longer than a minute and it has a ton of cool stuff in it."

X-Men: Apocalypse is being directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past), based on a script written by Simon Kinberg (Fantastic Four). The cast includes Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Munn, Rose Byrne, Michael Fassbender, Sophie Turner, Oscar Isaac, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, James McAvoy, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Lucas Till, Ben Hardy, Josh Helman and Lana Condor.

X-Men: Apocalypse will be released in U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.
