Twentieth Century Fox released the first trailer for “X-Men: Apocalypse” on Friday.

The film follows the storyline from the comic series, in which Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), the first mutant who has been alive since the days of ancient Egypt, awakens from thousands of years of suspended animation and is disgusted with the world he finds.

Apocalypse recruits a team of powerful mutants to wipe human beings off the planet. Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) must team up and train a new group of mutants to stop him.

The film reunites much of the cast from “X-Men: First Class” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” including McAvoy, Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult. Newcomers include Sophie Turner, Kodi Smitt-McPhee, Tye Sheridan, and Olivia Munn.

Bryan Singer returned to direct the project, along with writing the screenplay with Michael Dougherty,
Dan Harris, and Simon Kinberg. Kinberg and Singer are also producing with Lauren Shuler Donner. Stan Lee, Todd Hallowell, and Josh McLaglen are executive producing.

“X-Men: Apocalypse” will premiere in theaters on May 27.
