We have tickets to be won to see it in 4DX, on the huge IMAX screen and our first prize is four tickets for an X-Men triple bill event.

The triple bill - starting on Tuesday, May 17, at 6.30pm - will feature the entire X-Men prequel trilogy, which began when James McAvoy (Professor X) and Michael Fassbender (Magneto) took over the roles made famous by Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen in 2011's X-Men: First Class.

Days Of Future Past followed, in 2014, now comes the latest instalment, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Our lucky first prize winner and three guests will win tickets to see all three films, shown in order, at the triple bill event.

Four runners up will each get a pair of tickets, two to see the latest film in the 4DX theatre, with motion seats and atmosphere effects, and two others to see it on the IMAX screen.

It’s ten years since the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past and the world faces an even greater threat when Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), the world’s very first mutant, reawakens after thousands of years.

Disillusioned at the state of mankind, he assembles a team of powerful mutants, including Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Angel (Ben Hardy), to help create a new world order.

X-Men: Apocalypse, cert 12A - out on Wednesday, May 18.

It’s up to Professor X (James McAvoy) and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence), as well as their team of young X-Men, to stop Apocalypse and save the world from destruction.

Director Bryan Singer returns to the franchise he launched in 2000 with the first X-Men movie as he takes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence into the 1980s.

And expect more of Quicksilver (Evan Peters) – the breakout star of 2014’s Days of Future Past.
