Xavier’s students graduate to X-Men in explosive new Apocalypse trailer

[quote style=”boxed”]”I feel a great swell of pity for the poor soul who comes to my school looking for trouble.”[/quote]

That’s always been one of my favorite Professor X quotes from the first X-Men movie. Then, in 2000, it was spoken over a plastic chessboard in response to Magneto’s not-unkind “Doesn’t it ever wake you up in the middle of the night — the feeling that, someday, they’ll come for you … and your children?” The classic exchange, originally between the Ian McKellen Magneto and Patrick Stewart Xavier, gets quoted here in the new trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse as a trucker-chic Michael Fassbender and still-hirsute James McAvoy resume playing their younger incarnations in the 1980s — and face the coming of the Four Horsemen and the mutant Armageddon they herald.

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 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.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens May 27 for the Memorial Day weekend.
