UPDATE: The release date for ‘Dark Phoenix’ has been delayed AGAIN to June 7th, 2019 to join the summer blockbuster crowd.
With the release date delayed until Valentine’s Day 2019, the first official Trailer has finally arrived for the latest installment of the ‘X-Men’ franchise DARK PHOENIX!
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’ sees the return of the entire main ‘X-Men: First Class’ cast including James McAvoy as ‘Charles Xavier’, Michael Fassbender as ‘Magneto’, Jennifer Lawrence as ‘Mystique’, and Nicholas Hoult as ‘Beast’.
