20th Century Fox has dropped just the right doze of anticipation pill ahead of the 2019 Valentine’s Day release of the newest X-Men instalment Dark Phoenix.
The official trailer for Dark Phoenix was released on Wednesday night to the excitement of the franchise’s global fans. The 2-minute trailer features Sophie Turner who plays the villain character Jean Grey and a bit of the chaotic childhood that turned her into a mutant.
Other features include flashes of Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy who play Mystique, Magneto, and Professor X respectively.
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 spiralling out 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.
