If last week’s teaser clip offered up a sliver of new footage, 20th Century Fox is pushing full steam ahead today with the release of the second action-packed trailer for Bryan Singer’s mythic threequel, X-Men: Apocalypse.
For millenia, he’s been worshipped as a god – a former pharaoh and the first mutant, Oscar Isaac’s power knows no bounds in today’s all-new sizzle reel, as he sets about tearing our world asunder and building a new one from the ashes.

It’s a scorched Earth approach that puts Professor X and Co. firmly in the crosshairs, who stage a last-ditch resistance effort against Apocalypse in an attempt to fend off impending doom. Will they be able to topple En Sabah Nur and his capricious Four Horsemen? Time will tell.
Rounding out the star-studded lineup for Apocalypse are James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Nicholas Hoult, along with the Four Horsemen themselves – Michael Fassbender, Olivia Munn, Alexandra Shipp and Ben Hardy.
Building on the critical and commercial success of First Class and 2014’s mind-bending Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse is poised to rain down chaos ripped straight from the Old Testament on May 27.
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.
