The first full trailer to X-Men: Apocalypse has finally unleashed its bad self upon us, and the epic scale of Bryan Singer’s highly anticipated follow-up to Days of Future Past does not disappoint!
Apocalypse, Earth’s immortal first Mutant also know as En Sabah Nur, awakens after a thousand year sleep in 1983 to discover a world he sees fit to conquer. Apocalypse recruits four disheartened Mutants to become his Four Horsemen to help wipe the planet clean for his new regime. Charles Xavier and his expanding X-Men team must put a stop to it all, and this trailer spares little as far as providing us with a first look at the film’s epic scale.
From 20th Century Fox:
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.
