‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Trailer #3 Ramps Up the Action

Fox has given us a third trailer for their upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, and it’s heavy on the action and heavier on the 90s rock-song remix. Yes, that’s a riff on Filter’s “Hey Man, Nice Shot.”

Here’s the trailer:

And the official synopsis:

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.

Talk about over-the-top destruction. Rebuilding that Sydney Opera House is gonna be a tough task. X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 27.
