‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Set Photo Teases ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ Influence

X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer loves to teases his fans with Instagram photos while filming. The latest photo shows how massive a set they have built for the film as it looks like Apocalypse’s tomb.

Singer admits in the post his love of practical effects and memories of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Ancient mutant Apocalypse is unearthed after 5,000 years and recruits his four horsemen; Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Angel (Ben Hardy). The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse try to reboot the world through destruction.

The film is set in 1980s and we will see younger versions of previously-seen characters.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens in theaters on May 27, 2016.
