The superhero film’s ensemble cast returns to battle Magneto’s (Ian McKellen) newly-formed army of mutants, who prove themselves a powerful force to be reckoned with. At the same time, a new “cure” that eliminates the x-gene divides the mutants, with some of them interested in a “normal” life while others believe that it will be used to exterminate their species.
Canadian Connection: Mostly filmed in British Columbia. Several cast members are Canadian.
