By Matt O.

20th Century Fox has released another new featurette for the upcoming Bryan Singer directed X-Men: Apocalypse focusing on the film's story. The new video features a few new shots, but nothing to spectacular, although it does feature the cast and crew talking about some cool story elements. Check out the new featurette below and than sound off in the comments section with your thoughts.

"Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped 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 is set to hit theaters on May 27th.
