The new trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse dropped yesterday, and as is the norm for super-hero trailers now days, it had an eerie cover of an old pop song.


This was a cover of Coldplay’s “Don’t Panic” – a song best known for being on the soundtrack of what was a formative movie for some of us older millennials: Garden State.

Then I did this and I’m not sorry.
