X-Men: Apocalypse Soundtrack Tracklist; 80s Album Covers Released

X-Men Apocalypse Posters Highlight Heroes and Villains

[Potential minor spoilers for X-Men: Apocalypse ahead.]


The soundtrack of a movie not only sets its mood, but its track listing can reveal a lot about the plot of the film. Some soundtracks have even revealed key plot details, such as Star Wars: Episode I where tracks such as 'Anakin Defeats Sebulba,' 'Qui-Gon's Noble End,' and 'The High Council Meeting and Qui-Gon's Funeral' revealed details such as the podrace outcome and the death of Qui-Gon Jinn.

The soundtrack for X-Men: Apocalypse is now available for preorder, and its track listing may provide a few minor spoilers as well. If nothing else, the track names give fans an idea of how the film will unfold.

A preorder page for the Apocalypse soundtrack appeared on Amazon, revealing the full tracklist and the soundtrack's album cover. The soundtrack is arranged by John Ottman, and its listing doesn't contain much in the way of direct spoilers. It does give fans an idea of how far into the film some characters may appear, however. The full track listing is as follows:

Speaking of albums, the X-Men Movies Facebook page released a set of album art pictures that reimagined classic 80s songs as being about the mutants from Xavier's school. A total of six covers were created, spoofing on songs such as 'Sunglasses at Night' and 'Let's Dance'. You can see the covers below:

X-Men: Apocalypse - Jean Grey - School of the Telepathic Mind
Jean Grey - School of the Telepathic Mind/Boy George - Church of the Poison Mind
X-Men: Apocalypse - Quicksilver - I Run
Quicksilver - I Run/Flock of Seagulls - I Ran
X-Men: Apocalypse - Nightcrawler - Let's Bamf!
Nightcrawler - Let's BAMF/David Bowie - Let's Dance
X-Men: Apocalypse - Hank McCoy - Hungry Like the Beast
Hank McCoy - Hungry Like the Beast/Duran Duran - Hungry Like the Wolf
X-Men: Apocalypse - Scott Summers - Optic Visor at Night
Scott Summers - Optic Visor at Night/Corey Hart - Sunglasses at Night

It's kind of a shame that the 80's album covers aren't part of a larger marketing push, with the various cast members recording X-Men-based covers of the songs in question. It would be silly, sure, but it could also be a fun little marketing add-on like when Robert Downey Jr. lit up the Eiffel Tower in Iron Man colors to help promote Captain America: Civil War. There's no guarantee that the actors would even be able to hold a tune, but that's what auto-tune is for.
