I had my hopes up we’d get a better adaptation of the storyline instead of a rehashed X3. I also hoped Fox realized we like good movies after DP and Logan did so well but here we are.

I just want Gladiator and the Shi’ar, man.

This looks like a rehashed X3 with Jean joining up with Magneto's Brotherhood and being used as a weapon.  On the plus side, they don't have the "cure" subplot and Cyclops might finally take part in a Phoenix story.

The disappointing part is, the last few movies focused on Mystique and Magneto with Jean having little involvement except the climax of Apocalypse.  There is very little build up to this.

Also, is Magneto the guy we should go to for the moral high ground?

I haven't seen a X-film in theatres since First Class (and haven't watched Apocalypse all the way through.) I don't see that changing with this one.

Aside form Logan and the Deadpool movies, I haven't really liked an X-Men movie since X2.  I'm not sure why people made a big deal about First Class or DOFP, either.  It's all been pretty "meh" for me.

I saw Deadpool 1 & 2 but I forgot about it being an X-Film lol I saw Logan on home release. But I do like all 3 of those. And I agree about FC & DOFP.

Meh on the trailer.  Man almost no cgi is none of it done?  Are were the reshoots that major?  As for the  X-films I loved FC and DOFP if for no other reason than it was basically a big middle finger to X3.

This. I don't see this flick bucking the trend. As others have said, it just looks like Last Stand all over again.

DOFP was superb and FC was solid but Apocalypse was barely watchable
