Los Angeles - Nicholas Hoult has teased details of X-Men: Apocalypse.

The 25-year-old actor - who plays the part of Beast in the sci-fi franchise - isn't allowed to reveal too much information as the film is being kept "under wraps", but he admitted Ex Machina star Oscar Isaac will take on the role of a mutant called Apocalypse and it will be set in the 1980s.

Asked what he is allowed to say about the film, he said: "It's under wraps. But Oscar Isaac is playing a powerful mutant called Apocalypse. It's set in the 1980s and reintroduces some of the characters from the previous films but with more stories from when they were younger."

Meanwhile, the About a Boy star also admitted it took him "about three days to read" the movie's script.

He told Metro newspaper: "I'm a pretty fast reader, so it normally takes me about an hour-and-a-half to read a script. This one was sent in a convoluted way.

"It kept logging me out, so then my password wouldn't work, and then my name was imprinted all over the top of it so I could hardly read it. It took me about three days to read."
