James McAvoy becomes bald Professor X in first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer

McAvoy's Professor X joins forces with Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique as Sophie Turner's Jean Grey predicts the X-Men's downfall at the hands of first mutant Apocalypse


The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived – James McAvoy becomes the bald Professor X we all know and love in the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse.


The leader of the X-Men teams up with old pal Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) as new recruit Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) predicts death and destruction is coming thanks to Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse.

The evil newcomer is assisted by four horsemen, one of whom UK viewers will recognise as EastEnders’ own Peter Beale (Ben Hardy) – and, of course, Michael Fassbender’s Magneto.


X-Men: Apocalypse opens in UK cinemas on 19th May 2016
