The latest trailer of X-Men: Apocalypse shows the oldest mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) rise after thousands of years hell-bent on cleansing the world of the strongest mutants, which means the destruction of humanity. He recruits four mutants for the purpose but one hurdle lies before him: The X-Men.

"Some believe that the first mutant was born thousands of years ago. He was some kind of god, and he's going to rise again," Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne) tells Charles Xavier (James McAvoy).

In one scene, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) calls on young mutant students to stop Apocalypse and his followers, which includes Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who in one scene says: "We'll take everything from them". In the preceding scene Apocalypse says: "You are all my children and you're lost because you follow blind leaders. No more false gods."

Besides, Apocalypse is shown recruiting Magneto, who plays the villain in previous instalments of the movie. Apocalypse drops all but Magneto to the ground and then hands over his helmet. The other Apocalypse followers are: Archangel (Ben Hardy), Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Storm (Alexandra Shipp).

The new mutant students Jubilee (Lana Condor), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) look for Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) to harness their power but Mystique tells them: "You're not students anymore. You're X-Men."

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theatres on 27 May.
