Sophie Turner Goes Nuclear
If you haven’t heard, Disney recently acquired 20th Century Fox, the studios that owned the X-Men brand and make the movies. Shortly after the takeover, Fox Exec Emma Watts announced that:
“The upcoming Dark Phoenix will be the perfect sendoff for our X-Men team.”
That moment is almost upon us, and now, 20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for Dark Phoenix.
This final installment of the X-Men universe follows Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as she navigates her relationship to the Phoenix, a powerful cosmic entity that manifests itself in her body. After she takes out one of her own, it’s left to the X-Men to either rein her in or take her down.
Here’s the trailer:
Here’s the synopsis:
“The X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe when one of their own, Jean Grey, starts to spiral out of control. During a rescue mission in outer space, Jean is nearly killed when she’s hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. The X-Men must now band together to save her soul and battle aliens that want to use Grey’s new abilities to rule the galaxy.”
Starring alongside Turner is Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Alexandra Shipp (Storm) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler). Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), and Evan Peter (Quicksilver) all make a return in the movie, along with Nicholas Hoult (Beast).
Dark Phoenix is set to be released on the 7th June 2019.
