The Fox era of X-Men comes to a lackluster end after almost 20 years as Dark Phoenix is a boring, lifeless rehash of prior X-Men movie plots and character motivations.

Mystique leads the X-Men into battle against Apocalypse and his Horsemen in the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, which also teases the appearance of a certain clawed Canuck.

Combining the best of the old trilogy with the Wolverine/First Class movies, Days of Future Past is a blast of mutant awesomeness as Wolverine travels back to the 70’s to stop a dark future from occurring.
If you weren’t excited for Days of Future Past already, this new, action packed trailer should do the job.
