Thank god Quicksilver didn’t have to live through the days of dial-up.
In a new ad for British internet provider Sky Fibre and Fox‘s “X-Men: Apocalypse,” Quicksilver (played by Evan Peters) charms a fellow hotel patron that is having trouble with her internet broadband connection by dashing around the lobby and turning off the wifi-connected devices of fellow X-Men members that are throttling the connection. The scene’s action evokes Quicksilver’s iconic scene from “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and its background music — Redbone’s “Come and Get Your Love — brings to mind the classic soundtrack from “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
Of course, the promotional ad spot, which also features Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, and Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, begs the question of how the X-Men of the 1980s have found themselves in a hotel powered by 21st century internet magic, but it’s probably best not to worry too much about such things.
[Editorial Note: At the request of Skye Fibre, CBR has removed the embedded “X-Men: Apocalypse” video]
Starring Peters, Shipp, Smit-McPhee, Hoult, Sheridan, as well as Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Rose Byrne, Oscar Isaac, and more, “X-Men: Apocalypse” hits theaters stateside May 27, and is directed by Bryan Singer.
