It looks like director Bryan Singer is taking the 1980s setting of "X-Men: Apocalypse" seriously, based on a new behind-the-scenes photo of two new mutants.
On Thursday, Singer shared a snap of actresses Lana Condor and Sophie Turner on set, looking every bit the '80s part: they sport high-waisted jeans, neon, exaggerated shoulders, and of course, wacky, overly-teased hairdos. Condor and Turner, who play Jubilee and Jean Grey, respectively, were apparently shooting a scene at an arcade on what Singer said was their second day of filming.
Based on this photo alone, it looks like audiences are in for a winkingly-retro treat, much in the same way that "X-Men: Days of Future Past" embraced its 1970s setting. The rest of the cast includes "X-Men" regulars Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Evan Peters, and Lucas Till, and newcomers Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee Ben Hardy, Tye Sheridan, Olivia Munn, and Oscar Isaac.
"X-Men: Apocalypse" is due in theaters on May 27, 2016.
