“Dark Phoenix” Teaser Trailer Arrives – Jean Grey Is Mad!
The long-anticipated X-Men sequel is here, bringing us a fan favorite character into the Fox series – The Phoenix. However, this movie is skipping straight ahead to when Jean Grey goes berserk and becomes the malevolent Dark Phoenix! Today, we get our first look at the film thanks to this new trailer.
Watch the teaser trailer for “Dark Phoenix” Below:
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.
There had been rumors circulating about this film, saying it had not ben well-received by test audiences. While this teaser is only the first look at the film for the public, I will admit it is a little underwhelming. When you think about Jean Grey as The Phoenix, much bigger stakes tend to come to mind. Here, we see her take down a helicopter, get mad at the X-Men, and look emo. I hope our next trailer gives us more info and something more exciting to look at, so for now we head into this movie with a bit of trepidation.
“Dark Phoenix” hits theaters on June 7, 2019. It stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.
