X-Men: Apocalypse Drops Teaser on Instagram

X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters in three months, on Memorial Day, so we've got more teasers, trailers and clips coming our way. This little taste of why the film's got Apocalypse in its' title was dropped on Instagram, highlighting what looks like potentially the darkest X-Men film yet. 

Check it out here.

Here's the film's boilerplate, in case you haven't been keeping up with Apocalypse news: "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."
