IF you're not in the mood for the busy crowds at the theatre, and re-runs on Netflix just aren't doing it for you anymore, TELUS* has the answer for you!
 
'X-Men: Apocalypse' is now available on TELUS Optik TV!!
 

Summer vacation has officially come to an end. That means school and work are back in full swing, and it’s the perfect time to chill and veg out with a movie night this weekend. So grab your remote, some popcorn, and your favourite blanket and get ready to cozy up to some of the biggest blockbusters of the year!

If you’re an Optik TV subscriber, you get early access to purchase the most popular movies up to a month before they are available to rent or on Blu-ray. For those movie buffs out there, that's reason enough to sign up to Optik!

Last weekend, Optik subscribers got early access to Captain America: Civil War (the highest grossing movie of the year!). This weekend, Optik customers can be among the first in Western Canada to get X-Men: Apocalypse (see trailer below), weeks before its October 4th launch date. How’s that for Marvel-ous news?! Pun fully intended!

Right now there are five movies available early on Optik TV. From action-packed blockbusters to hilarious comedies to spooky horror movies, there’s something here for everyone.

 

X-Men: Apocalypse
Worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilization, Apocalypse becomes the first and most powerful mutant. Awakening after thousands of years, he recruits the disheartened Magneto and other mutants to create a new world order. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Professor X and Raven lead a team of young X-Men to stop them from destroying mankind.

Captain America: Civil War
Political interference in the Avengers' activities causes a rift between former allies Captain America and Iron Man. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, the Avengers must pick a side. Whose side are you on?

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising
Now that Mac and Kelly Radner have a second baby on the way, they are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs. But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighbourhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a hard–partying, out-of-control sorority, led by Shelby. Mac and Kelly are forced to team up with their charismatic ex-neighbour and now secret weapon, Teddy, since the ladies of Kappa Nu aren't going down without a fight.

The Conjuring 2
The supernatural thriller brings to the screen another real case from the files of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

Now the heroes in the half shell must team up with April O'Neil and their new, hockey-masked ally Casey Jones, to battle their enemies and face their biggest threat ever: the notorious Krang.
