After two underwhelming domestic trailers for the last of the Fox “X-Men” films, “Dark Phoenix” had a bit of a resurgence in buzz thanks to a much more impressive international trailer.
Well the 20th Century Fox domestic marketing department seems to have taken notes and have unveiled one more, dubbed the ‘final trailer’, which offers the most extensive look yet at the film and spells out many of the story beats.
The fourth film of the ‘First Class’ era, the story will adapt the seminal Marvel Comics storyline ‘The Dark Phoenix Saga’ in which Jean Grey is taken over by a dark cosmic entity that will tear her apart. In the process, the X-Men try to stop her from destroying the universe.
Set in 1992, the X-Men have become national heroes and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) starts sending his X-Men on increasingly dangerous missions until a space-bound rescue sees a solar flare strike the X-Jet, awakening a long-dormant power in Jean Grey (Sophie Turner).
Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, Tye Sheridan, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Evan Peters co-star in the film which opens June 7th.
