On The Late Late Show with James Corden, Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner brought along the first trailer for the upcoming X-Men film Dark Phoenix. The first footage we've seen from the film reveals a character-driven storyline which follows The Dark Phoenix Saga from the comics by John Byrne and Chris Claremont. This plot was previously attempted in X-Men: The Last Stand to much derision, and now longtime X-Men movie producer and writer Simon Kinberg looks to right that wrong as he takes on writing and directing duties in this which is also directorial debut. The cast is returning from the previous three X-Men franchise entries which follow younger versions of the mutants. This will most likely be the final installment of the X-Men series before Disney and Marvel Studios take over, so hopefully the groundbreaking franchise goes out on a high note.
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. The film is written and directed by Simon Kinberg, produced by Simon Kinberg, Hutch Parker, Lauren Shuler Donner, Todd Hallowell, and the cast includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Dark Phoenix is in theaters February 14, 2019.
