Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) is apparently taken by Apocalypse's crew, so Mystique is left to lead the young mutants in their attempt to defeat the new villain. "It's all of us against a god."
Mystique: "I'm not a hero."
Beast: "The students look up to you."
JLaw is the most famous person in the movie, so it's not really a surprise they'd beef up Mystique's role and put her at the center of the trailer, if not the entire movie. But she doesn't get the end cameo -- that goes to Wolverine's claws, akin to "Captain America: Civil War" giving the end shot to Spider-Man.
Hugh Jackman teased Wolverine's appearance in the trailer:

Here's the film's synopsis from 20th Century Fox:
"Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped 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."
