The first trailer has arrived for “Dark Phoenix,” the last full 20th Century Fox “X-Men” film in the series before the franchise transfers over to Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios.
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, Evan Peters and Olivia Munn co-star in the film which opens February 14th 2019.
