Remember late last month when Olivia Munn posted a video of herself performing some wicked sword moves, and that other one with all the spin kicks? Well, this new video is kind of like those, but this one has the bonus of showing off just how surprisingly fast the actress' martial arts moves have gotten. Check her out below!
X-Men: Apocalypse may have wrapped first unit production, but the second unit is still filming up in Montreal, and it appears that Olivia Munn is still hard at work making sure that we all believe her as the fan-favorite mutant Psylocke. To this point, we don't know exactly how many fights the character will get into in the movie, or who she will be fighting, but what is clear from this Instagram video is that she's going to be using her legs as a strong asset.
Beyond Olivia Munn's training videos, not much has been revealed about the version of Psylocke that we will see in X-Men: Apocalypse - though we do know that she will be loyal to a seriously bad dude. As we learned last month at San Diego Comic-Con, the powerful telekinetic is one of the four mutants who are serving as the Horsemen of Apocalypse - a.k.a. the titular villain's personal guard. She is joined in this group by Michael Fassbender's Magneto, Alexandra Shipp's Storm, and Ben Hardy's Angel - though what isn't entirely clear yet is who each of them represent (War, Pestilence, Famine and Death).
Just for the hell of it, you can watch both of Olivia Munn's previous videos below, starting with the sword swinging:
And the second featuring a whole lot more kicks:
X-Men: Apocalypse is set in 1983 and finds a world that has been completely changed by the events featured in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Rather than being at odds, there is a degree of peace between humans and mutants - and some even worship members of Homo superior. This leads to a lot of trouble, however, as the first mutant known as Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) is awoken from a deep slumber, and begins a campaign with the aim of ruling the world. Standing in his way, of course, are Professor X (James McAvoy) and his team of X-Men. In addition to all the impressive names already mentioned, the movie also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Lana Condor. See it in theaters May 27, 2016.
