The first trailer for director Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been out. There hasn’t been much fuss among fans about this film, which is totally acceptable considering it’s been a long time since we’ve seen a great X-Men film, not including Logan and Deadpool.
That being said, this latest X-Men film looks like it actually could be a good and entertaining film. I like what I’m seeing in this trailer, especially the intensity building up around Jean Grey.
I think most fans are just excited to see what Marvel Studios ends up doing with the characters once they get their hands back on them. But, in the meantime, we have this, and after watching this trailer, I’m looking forward to watching it.
In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men face their most challenging and powerful enemy: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a liberation 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 weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
X-Men Dark Phoenix sees the return of many people namely James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sophie Grace, and Alexandra Shipp. Jessica Chastain will be seen performing the role of a mysterious villain here.
Well, let me tell you “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” is set to hit theatres on February 14, 2019.
