Playing First 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Trailer Is Here and Jennifer Lawrence Is Ready to Fight

X-Men: Apocalypse is living up to its name in the new trailer.

In the this first look at the action-packed sequel, there's a new villain out to wipe out the world and start all over. Oscar Isaac portrays centuries-old mutant En Sabah Nur (a.k.a. Apocalypse), who awakes to find that mutants are not living up to his satisfaction.

He recruits Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) as part of his Four Horsemen crew that will help in his evil doing. EvenCharles Xavier (James McAvoy)appears to have gone to the dark side by the end of the trailer. We also get a glimpse at his bald head. "I've never felt power like this before," Xavier exclaims.

"Everything they built will fall," En Sabah Nur proclaims. "And from the ashes of their bones, we'll build a better one."

"That's why I'm here," she insists. "To fight!"
