When new teleporting mutant Nightcrawler (Alan Cumming, Goldeneye) appears inside The White House and attempts to assassinate the President, the X-Menss world is thrown into danger. Rebel baddie Stryker (Brian Cox,Manhunter) is behind it and plots an elaborate plan to capture all mutants including the pupils at Professor Xaviers (Patrick Stewart, Star Trek) School for the Gifted. It is then up to the indestructible Wolverine (Hugh Jackman, Swordfish) to discover the truth about what is going on, and in the process, the story behind his own identity. Meanwhile, the villainous Magneto (Ian McKellen, Lord of the Rings) breaks free from prison with the help of his shape-shifting comrade, Mystique (Rebecca Romjin-Stamos, Femme Fatale), creating more cataclysmic events for the X-Men. As danger beckons, the mutants call upon their powers to an even greater extent.
Dr Jean Grey (Famke Janssen, Goldeneye) reaches extraordinary new levels using her powers of telepathy alongside weather-manipulator Storm (Academy Award winner Halle Berry, Monsters Ball), life-force zapper Rogue (Anna Pacquin, Buffalo Soldiers), laser beam Cyclops (James Marsden, Disturbing Behaviour) and the cool Ice-Man (Shawn Ashmore). United with further newcomers including the iron claw-clad Lady Deathstrike (Kelly Hu, The Scorpion King) and fingertip firestarter Pyro (Aaron Stanford), X-Men 2 contains the most spectacular array of super-hero powers you have ever seen!
