See Olivia Munn Pull Out All Her Learned Psylocke Skills In Impressive Fight Sequence

We're all patiently waiting for X-Men: Apocalypse's debut trailer - and have spent a good amount of time wondering what will be featured. Perhaps how the Four Horsemen are assembled? Maybe the titular villain showcasing some of his metamorphosis powers? Another possibility is that we see more of Olivia Munn's moves as Psylocke - and if that's the case, the actress has given us another little preview of what to expect:

Munn has been training very hard all throughout the course of production on X-Men: Apocalypse, and she has been using her Instagram feed fairly frequently to show fans her new skills. This particular video showcases some of the sick moves that she has learned to perform with a sword - and it's pretty damn impressive. She definitely earns the fun little wink she adds at the very end.

Thanks to Olivia Munn's social media prowess, we've had some fun watching her progress and get better with her swordplay. Admittedly she started off pretty damn great:

But her wirework was a bit shaky with katana (and psychic dagger) in hand:

Now she has the skills to combine swinging a sword with complex martial arts choreography, and she looks great doing it.

After months of filming up in Quebec, Canada, X-Men: Apocalypse wrapped principal photography a couple weeks ago, and now director Bryan Singer will be taking it into the editing room and getting it ready for release next summer. We've heard rumors that the first trailer for the film is going to be attached to screenings of Ridley Scott's The Martian - which will be heading to theaters on October 2nd. If that's the case, we should see the preview drop online first in the next few weeks, so be sure to stay on the lookout!

In addition to Olivia Munn, the stacked cast of X-Men: Apocalypse includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Hardy, Lana Condor and Oscar Isaac. 20th Century Fox will have in in theaters on May 27, 2016.
