Check out this awesome new international trailer for director Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix. It has some new footage from the first trailer, and it also works as a reminder, that yes, this movie is going to finally be released.
The last two films were average at best, though, so we’ll just have to wait and see how this turns out to be. Fox reportedly asked Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to review the script and tone for the film, so hopefully, he helped direct the creative team in the correct direction.
In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling our of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite – not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
Dark Phoenix star cast includes James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sophie Turner, and Alexandra Shipp. Jessica Chastain will be taking on the role of a mysterious villain in the story.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix will hit theaters on June 7th, 2019.
