Let's go to war with this new explosive trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse

“You’re not students anymore. You’re X-Men.” 20th Century Fox has unleashed an explosive new trailer for director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

The mutant-filled superhero film sees the return of Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert), Lucas Till (Havok), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast).

The final movie in Singer's new X-Men trilogy (the one begun with X-Men: First Class) also introduces Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Lana Condor (Jubilee), Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Ben Hardy (Angel) and Olivia Munn (Psylocke).

The exciting new trailer offers a peek at the mystical origins of the first mutant, En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse (Isaac), and we also have a look at Angel’s feathered wings, before Apocalypse got his hands on him and turned them into those lethal razor-blade thingies. From the looks of things, the stakes have never been higher for the X-Men (and the world). Check it out:


Below is the official movie synopsis:

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

X-Men: Apocalypse will blast into movie theaters on May 27, 2016.
