WATCH: X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer debuts

September 27th, 2018 by Todd Black Comments

Ever since the delay of X-Men Dark Phoenix, it was unclear when we would get the first official trailer, but now we have it.

The trailer debuted on the Late Late Show With James Corden, and the tone of the film is as dark as the Phoenix we know is coming. Even in the song in the background sings “This is the end”.

There are many things that can be dissected here. The fault of Charles Xavier for restraining Jeans’ powers, the resurgence of Magneto who acts as both hero and villain depending on the scene. The split in the X-Men over what to do with Jean, and the death that is being teased at Jean’s hands.

Sadly, we’re going to have to wait a while until the movie is out, as it releases on February 14th, 2019.

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 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 stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp and Jessica Chastain. Direction comes from Simon Kinberg.
