Yes, you read that right.
20th Century Fox is errr…. sparing no expense to market their latest X-Men film X-Men: Apocalypse in Japan. The film is opening much later in the land of the rising sun compared to the rest of the world and the marketing department is banking on the biggest breakout character of the year to drive butts into the seats for them.
Deadpool appears at the end of the trailer and begins to share some facts from the film. It is great to see him back on screen after the much successful outing in Feb and reminds you why you love the dude so much. X-Men opens on August 11 in Japan while Deadpool has been playing since Jun 1st.
Check out the trailer below (Deadpool joins at the 2:30 mark):

Read the official synopsis below:
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.
