Little known fact: One of my favorite ways to unwind is to watch gag reels. While I’m basically an entertainment-consumption machine, when I need a break from movies and TV series I fill the time by watching my favorite casts from my favorite projects make arses of themselves. I always jump at the chance to see the actors cutting loose, having fun, and making light of the often absurd scenarios that they’re being charged with bringing to such serious life. Today I’ll share with you the newly released gag reel for X-Men: Apocalypse.

In the gag reel below, you’ll see nearly all of the stars of X-Men: Apocalypse goof around or botch a seminal moment, and there’s some definite gold scattered around. Enjoy!

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, 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 with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

That star-studded X-Men: Apocalypse gag reel includes the likes of James McAvoy Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Alexandra Shipp.

You can get X-Men: Apocalypse in Digital HD now, but if you’d prefer a hard copy you’ll have to wait for October 4.
