When “X-Men: Apocalypse” debuts in theaters over Memorial Day Weekend 2016, a careful scan of the ending credits will reveal that five graduates from The Art Institute of Vancouver helped to bring the film to life.

The movie, which premiered in offshore markets during the weekend of May 21, earned over $100 million in just two days, according to Deadline Hollywood. It’s expected to provide tough competition to “Alice Through the Looking Glass” for top movie in the United States over the holiday weekend.
