20th Century Fox, via Empire, has released the above photo featuring Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique in full costume. Reaction to the film’s first trailer a couple of days ago was lukewarm at best, perhaps the latest installment of the current X-Men film can generate some excitement once it’s released.
We catch up with the mutant heroes in 1992, a time when they’re up and running as a superhero team. But when one rescue mission in space goes badly wrong, Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) is exposed to strange cosmic energy that unlocks the vast powers lurking within her. It’s something that Xavier has long tried to keep under wraps, but as Jean embraces her abilities, she comes under the influence of a mysterious alien with her own agenda (Jessica Chastain).
