Behold the First X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer

"I saw the end of the world. I could feel all this death." This comes from the young Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), who tells this vision to Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). "Jean," Charles says, "it was just a dream." Um, Charles, you do remember that one Jean Gray is an "Omega-level" mutant, right? Let's assume she doesn't just have pointless dreams, okay? Also, the film's subtitle is Apocalypse.

Thus begins 20th Century Fox's first trailer for next summer's hotly anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse today, with director Bryan Singer once again back to direct. The film focuses on the eponymous character Apocalypse (Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Oscar Isaac in some seriously heavy makeup), the very first, and seemingly most powerful mutant who wants to bring all mutants together to start a new world order.

The trailer's packed with biblical references, big set pieces, and one very telling haircut. Check it out and let us know what you think.
