It's here, "X-Men" fans -- the trailer for "X-Men: Apocalypse." It starts out quietly enough, with Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) telling Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) that she saw "the end of the world" and "could feel all this death," as Xavier reassures her it was just a dream.

But it was not just a dream. It was an all-too-real nightmare when the original mutant, En Sabah Nur, a.k.a. Apocalypse (Oscar Issac), rises up to claim the world as his own.

"I've been called many things over many life times -- Raja, Krishna, Yahweh -- you are all my children and you are lost because you follow blind leaders. But I am here now. I'm here for you. Everything they've built will fall and from the ashes of their world, we'll build a better one," says Apocalypse in voice over.

He's after four followers to help him take down the world as we know it -- the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

"He got that from the Bible," says Alex Summers, a.k.a. Havok (Lucas Till). "Or the Bible got it from him," says Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne) ominously.

As Apocalypse tries to control the X-Men, Xavier gasps that he's "never felt power like this before" -- and fans get a glimpse of the newly-bald Professor X.

"X-Men: Apocalypse," co-starring Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Olivia Munn, Evan Peters and Nicholas Hoult, opens May 27, 2016.
