When the X-Men return to the big-screen in May of 2016 they will face a new (and also super-old) nemesis: Apocalypse, an ancient Egyptian mutant hellbent on world domination. Onscreen, Apocalypse will be portrayed by Oscar Isaac, the rising star of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ and ‘A Most Violent Year,’ and, later in 2015, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ where he plays Poe Dameron. In the comics, Apocalypse typically looks sort of like you see him above, with elaborate blue armor, slate-colored face, and inhuman blue lips. This look, it’s pretty clear to me, would not translate to film (at least not in a way that wouldn’t evoke instantaneous laughter from viewers).

Chandor is the definition of “gregarious.” He likes telling long stories (to the point he drove the film’s publicists crazy trying to keep everything running on time, until they just kind of gave up), which I suppose makes sense considering his profession. Chandor is the true definition of “storyteller,” in that he conceives a story and follows it through from start to finish—whether that’s on film or in a Park Ave. hotel. Though, Chandor admits he’s a “loudmouth,” but commends himself on not revealing a big secret about Oscar Isaac’s role in the new ‘Star Wars’ movie.

‘A Most Violent Year’ Trailer: Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain Fight to Protect Their Family

On paper, 'A Most Violent Year' doesn't sound like anything special. It's a story we've seen a hundred times before: a criminal finds his bloody business creeping into his family life, threatening to tear down everything he's worked so hard to build. However, when you put J.C. Chandor in the director's chair and cast people like Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in the lead roles, what was once old starts to feel new again.

J.J. Abrams is famous for keeping secrets. His whole schtick as a director is the “mystery box”—finding pleasure in the unknown, and in the tease of that uncertainty. He didn’t show the monster in the trailer for ‘Cloverfield’; hell he didn’t even show the title of the movie in the trailer for ‘Cloverfield.’ If J.J. Abrams could release a movie without telling you anything about it, he probably would.

Following the debut of that first awesome trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ we’ve been dying to know more about the newest installment in the franchise. Among the things we’d love to know: how much of the set is practical, and just what is the deal with that crazy lightsaber? The actors involved in the film have been fairly tight-lipped, but Oscar Isaac, who was also recently cast in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ as the titular villain, has opened up in a new interview to shed some light on ‘The Force Awakens.’
