"X-Men: Apocalypse's" Xavier Profiled In "Flush & Fabulous" Retro Promo

The marketing team behind "X-Men: Apocalypse" has really played up the film's '80s roots. In addition to vintage arcade games and parody album covers, a number of videos have been released that play up the film's retro setting. The latest video perfectly parodies "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," the syndicated TV series that showed off the luxurious lives of '80s celebrities. It even features "Lifestyles" host Robin Leach doing the voiceover. The video, titled "Fables of the Flush & Fabulous," profiles reclusive millionaire Charles Xavier and his school for gifted youngsters.

Previous '80s-themed VHS style videos include mystery series "In The Footsteps Of..." and an enrollment video for the Xavier School.

Directed by Bryan Singer, "X-Men: Apocalypse" opens on May 27.
