Sophie Turner stars in stunning first X-Men Dark Phoenix trailer

X-Men Dark Phoenix

Personally, though I like this cast a lot, the X-Men movies lost me a couple entries ago, and this somewhat flat trailer isn't doing much to change that.

Also worth noting is the brief shots of grieving X-Men at a funeral (implying some characters might actually meet their grisly demise) and a very brief shot of Beast and Mystique (played by former flames Hoult and Lawrence) sharing an emotional moment. Both X-Men: Days of Future Past and the absolutely awful follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse, essentially blew-up the film franchise timeline as we previously knew it.

Well, no more! Today the studio dropped a trailer for Dark Phoenix, the latest in its twisty-turny, continuity-burny X-Men series. Check out the Dark Phoenix trailer below! Jessica Chastain is the new addition who may or may not be playing a villain.

X-Men Dark Phoenix Jean

And they're always grim, right?

Dark Phoenix will tell the story of what is arguably the most important X-Men story, of Jean Grey and her relationship to the Phoenix, a powerful cosmic entity that manifests itself in Jean's body. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is almost killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Dark Phoenix opens in theaters on February 14, 2019. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable.

While it's unlikely the Selene of Dark Phoenix will be depicted as a 17,000-year-old mutant "goddess", we can probably expect her to retain her ability to psionically drain her opponents of their lifeforce, and absorbing that energy into her own body. Jean's backstory is briefly touched on, and Professor X's immoral, but necessary, manipulation of her powers is also briefly displayed. "It's something I think audiences have nearly grown accustomed to now given that the Marvel [MCU] movies are so often now intergalactic".
