“Are we destined to destroy each other, or can we change who we are and unite?” Professor Xavier wonders aloud in opening of brand new “X-Men: Days of Future Past” trailer. “Is the future truly set?”

Mutant leaders better hope not.

In 20th Century Fox’s newest installment of the X-Men franchise, good and evil are forced to come together to save present-day mutant-kind from extinction. To do so, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) must travel into the past to end the in-fighting before it ever begins.

But the task of getting rivals Magneto (Michael Fassbender/IanMcKellen) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy/Patrick Stewart) to team up is no easy one, the trailer proves. It’s also a bloody one.

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin and Halle Berry. The superhero movie hits theaters on May 23.
