Following the timely leaking of a few seconds of footage on Wednesday, a new trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse has arrived to vastly improve everyone's week. For those keeping up with X-Men trailers, that means we get more of this:

With Professor X putting together a (hopefully) unstoppable group of next generation mutants to take on Magneto and company, with only the fate of the entire world at stake, what could possibly go wrong? In a fitting move of potentially post-apocalyptic dystopia, this latest trailer features a very mood-appropriate cover of an old-ish Coldplay track. Well played, Bryan Singer.

X-Men: Apocalypse stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne, Olivia Munn, Nicholas Hoult, and way too many others to list here. Peep the official synopsis, if you're into more words, below:

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.

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27.
