Dark Phoenix trailer: The X-Men battle for Jean Grey’s soul
Delays saw X-Men: Dark Phoenix moved from November last year to February, and it now has a new release of early June. There’s been a lot of reshoots to reshape the last act, and the release of the latest trailer seems to show things are likely to stick to schedule now. As we know, this is another attempt at adapting Chris Claremont and John Byrne comic book story "The Dark Phoenix Saga", after 2006’s forgettable X-Men: The Last Stand. The new trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix dropped in the early hours on Jimmy Fallon. Check it out above.
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 spiralling 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 weaponise this force and rule the galaxy.
Simon Kinberg directs, with the cast starring Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Sophie Turner, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Alexandra Shipp.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix opens in the UK on June 7th.
