Fox has released a trailer for its upcoming comic book adaptation X-Men: Apocalypse, the eighth film set in the X-Men universe.
Take a look:
The film brings to the screen the fan-favorite villain Apocalypse, who first appeared in the pages of X-Factor #5 and #6 in 1986. Directed by Bryan Singer, the movie follows En Sabah Nur, the world’s first and most-powerful mutant, who has been worshipped as a god since the dawn of civilization. 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.
The film also stars Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, Josh Helman, Lana Condor and Ben Hardy.
It’s due in theaters May 27.
