Watch the First Trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse

"I've never felt power like this before."


The first trailer for the latest X-men movie was originally scheduled to debut with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But with Star Trek Beyond, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Independence Day: Resurgence among the big movies also expected to have trailers screened before The Force Awakens, Fox have brought the first look at X-Men: Apocalypse forward. It's now online and can be watch right here:

X-Men: Apocalypse is directed by Bryan Singer, who made the first two movies in the series and returned for 2014's Days of Future Past, which has become the most successful film in the series to date. It is due for release on May 27, 2016, and stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, and Rose Byrne.

An official synopsis for the film was also released by the studio this week. It reads:

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.

Last month it was reported that reshoots on the film are scheduled to take place in Montreal in January, and that Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman might be involved.

It has not been confirmed if Jackman is returning for the film--and is nowhere to be seen in the trailer--but it has been rumoured that he would make an appearance before moving onto 2017's Wolverine 3.
