In a new trailer, Jean Grey loses control of her abilities and unleashes the Phoenix. She hurts those she loves, and ultimately could be what divides the X-Men once and for all.
In addition to it, Jessica Chastain reveals more about her evil character. And there are aliens who want to weaponize Jean’s power and rule the galaxy.
Michael Fassbender returns as Magneto together with Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Red Lotus (Andrew Stehlin), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and Selene (Kota Eberhardt). Main players Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Quicksilver (Evan Peters), and Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) also return.
According to the film’s original synopsis: 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.
Dark Phoenix arrives in theaters on June 7th.
