The X-Men: Apocalypse trailer is set to screen ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens next week, but fans can catch their first look at the latest X-Men film from director Bryan Singer ahead of Star Wars‘ major release. Follow up to 2014’s critical and financial smash hit, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Apocalypse finds the X-Men in the 1980s. James McAvoy returns as a wiser, balder Professor X with Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, and Lucas Till as Havok. Franchise newcomers Tye Sheridan, Olivia Munn, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Ben Hardy, Kodi McPhee, and Lana Condor join as Cyclops, Psylocke, Storm, Jean Grey, Angel, Nightcrawler, and Jubilee, respectively. The Force Awakens’ Oscar Isaac stars as the titular villain, Apocalypse, an ancient evil who resurfaces to threaten all of mutant and humankind.
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped 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 opens May 27, 2016.
