With the upcoming Batman V Superman and Marvel’s Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse has gotten lost in the mix.  The newest trailer for the Bryan Singer directed X-Men film is here, and it certainly promises destruction and mayhem.  With a somewhat weak first trailer, X-Men: Apocalypse has totally redeemed itself.  We get a better look at Apocalypse himself, and more of his backstory.  The biggest difference between the two trailers is that with the newest one, the effects seem to be coming together and much more polished.  X-Men is beginning to take shape and look like an actually movie.  But, who am I?  Judge for yourself.

Check out the trailer below:

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

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 27th, and also stars Michael FassbenderJennifer LawrenceNicholas HoultRose ByrneTye SheridanSophie TurnerOlivia MunnLucas TillEvan PetersKodi Smit-McPheeAlexandra ShippJosh HelmanLana Condor, and Ben Hardy.
