It’s the X-Men Versus Jean Grey In the First ‘Dark Phoenix’ Trailer
Picking up about a decade after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix – which interestingly doesn’t actually have X-Men in the title – finds Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey more powerful than before, and this time as the villain. The first trailer takes us back to Jean’s traumatic childhood and a horrific car crash, caused by Jean’s own powers. We also get a look at the return of Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, James McAvoy’s Professor Xavier, Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, Tye Sheridan’s Cyclops, Nicholas Hoult’s Beast, Evan Peters’ Quicksilver and more.
Here’s the official 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, which also stars Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Jessica Chastain, hits theaters February 14, 2019.
