20th Century Fox recently released a new trailer for Dark Phoenix. The latest trailer features a deeper look at the setting of the film. Some highlights include a look at the team’s outlook of the situation and features a preview of some of the potential repercussions of Jean Grey’s actions.
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 spiraling 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.
Personally this trailer did not do much for me, although I think I will most likely see this film in theaters. The setting looks alright, although the costume work is really lackluster and it is not helping with my overall impression of the film so far.
Dark Phoenix will premiere in theaters on June 7.
