In X-Men Dark Phoenix, the X-Men must decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world. Reason being, Jean Grey has began to develop incredible corrupting powers that will turn her into a Dark Phoenix.
Directed by Simon Kinberg; key cast includes James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner…
I just recently finished watching Captain America – Civil War (2016) and the plot of Dark Phoenix reminds me of it. I’m blaming that for my slightly subdued enthusiasm. Well, that and the fact that this trailer didn’t quite induce the expected yelp of excitement it’s predecessors did. I actually thought that the Lawrence, McAvoy and Fassbender phase of X-Men had been wrapped up. I’m not mad that it hasn’t yet, but I just wish that overall, this trailer had me more enthused.
My favourite line so far is ‘I’ve seen evil, and I’m looking at it now.’ It’s therefore unsurprising that what I’m most excited about overall is Sophie Turners ‘good girl gone bad’ performance.
Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, Alexandra Shipp, Ato Essandoh and Summer Fontana also star.
X-Men Dark Phoenix Release Dates: February 5th, 2019 (UK); February 14th, 2019 (US)…
