The teaser campaign for X-Men: Apocalypse just leveled up with a new retro-styled teaser from 20th Century Fox. Modeled like an old-school prime-time network television special from the 1980s — TV used to be a destination event before streaming, kids — this new teaser has gotten me more pumped for this movie than any trailer before it.

Titled In the Footsteps of... En Sabah Nur — Apocalypse's real name — the teaser treats the villain as though he, and the mutants that came after him, are real. Check it out:

Y'see? Pretty amazing. It'd be even better if the whole special was produced and put on the Blu-ray release.

X-Men: Apocalypse lands in theaters May 27.
