In a new featurette for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, Coldwell Bankers (perhaps fittingly) takes us on a tour of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. With comments from director Brian Singer, stars Sophie Turner and James McAvoy, as well as production designer Grant Major and others, the mutants’ home is described as the center of the X-Men universe, and this time around, it’s double the size of previous movies.
With the new inclusion of a library wing, a huge main hall, and a beautiful office, there’s definitely a lot to take in for what seems like a massive set. Singer said it also gives them the chance to do something “new and surprising.”

Here’s the official synopsis for X-Men: Apocalypse:
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
