X-Men: Dark Phoenix Trailer

"They can't begin to comprehend what you are…" 20th Century Fox has finally debuted the first trailer for Dark Phoenix, the next big X-Men movie focusing on Jean Grey as she becomes the "Dark Phoenix". This is all connected to the previous X-Men series, and brings back a few of the characters from the most recent movies. Sophie Turner (from "Game of Thrones" and Josie) replaces Famke Janssen as Jean Grey; she already appeared in X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016 as Phoenix. The cast includes many old and new members: James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Peters, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, plus Jessica Chastain, Ato Essandoh, and Scott Shepherd. This looks a bit different than expected, not as much action. And definitely more of a bigger X-Men movie than something small and focused, but perhaps they felt it was necessary to connect with audiences of all kinds.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Simon Kinberg's X-Men: Dark Phoenix, direct from YouTube:

Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world. The next saga in Fox's X-Men franchise of movies. X-Men: Dark Phoenix is directed by industry veteran, English writer-producer Simon Kinberg, making his feature directorial debut with this film after producing various superhero movies for the last 20 years, including X-Men: First Class, Days of Future Past, Logan, Deadpool, and The Martian. The screenplay is also written by Simon Kinberg, based on the "The Dark Phoenix Saga" comics storyline by John Byrne, Chris Claremont, and Dave Cockrum. After being delayed from first opening this summer, 20th Century Fox will finally release Kinberg's X-Men: Dark Phoenix in theaters everywhere starting on June 7th, 2019 next summer. First impression? Looking good?

why use a watered down version of a great song?

ElBischoff on Sep 27, 2018


Meh, doesn't seem appealing. Looks as bad as X-Men 3: The Last Stand. Perhaps that's what the director is going for.

Well this doesn't look ANYTHING like the Dark Phoenix story I KNOW. The sooner Disney/Marvel rips this franchise away from Fox, the better X-men movies we're going to get. Until then, this is gonna be another attempt and miss.

Yeah how dare they change the storyline up so its not immediately predictable like, oh I dunno, every goddamn comic book adaptation ever? Like how the MCU does it? Jesus grow up you weird sad child. Also it'll be in the MCU in a few years, but I'm sure then you and your kind will find something else asinine to whine about

Wow man. I'm not the one trying to "flame" some anonymous internet poster. I'm sorry you're so miserable in life you have to try and instigate stuff to make yourself feel BIG and TOUGH. It's just MY opinion, man. You're not obligated to agree. And I DO like the way the MCU has been doing it. Infinity War is a pretty great example. Go back to bed grump. Me and my kind are JUST fine.

spin-off? wtf? this isn't a spinoff you weirdo, it's the 4th movie in the franchise this whole site has just gone downhill in every way in recent years

DanielShaw on Sep 27, 2018


Why are you wasting your time here then? No one's going to miss you if you leave.

THE_RAW_ on Sep 27, 2018


Thanks for the heads up. BLOCKING him now...

THE_RAW_ on Sep 27, 2018


Sure is hilarious to see when one troll calls out another Troll. And...btw...yeah...dont forget to Block yourself. Moron.

It's the start of a new saga. It may be using the same actors from the last few movies, but it was originally pitched as a spin-off - like X-Men: The New Mutants, but with this one focusing on Jean Grey as the main character. Maybe they don't call it that officially, but still...

Alex Billington on Sep 27, 2018


Here's hoping it's actually the end, and the X-Men can go home to Marvel. While I'm not fond of Disney taking another step towards becoming Weyland Yutani, I'm looking forward to having these characters in the MCU, and done right.

I highly doubt Fox will ever give up their X-Men rights... Maybe if these next two films are huge financial disasters, but I doubt it. They'll also hold onto those Spider-Man rights for as long as they can.

Alex Billington on Sep 28, 2018


But aren't those properties included in the buyout? I was under the impression that, should Disney's acquisition finalize, those IP's would belong to them. Along with many others.

grimjob on Sep 28, 2018


I thought the same. All the entertainment franchises/licenses were included in the deal... I seem to remember Kevin Feige being interviewed about bringing X-men and the like into the MCU and he basically said: "We're not doing anything until we have the rights in our hands"...

THE_RAW_ on Sep 28, 2018


Psst. Disney bought Fox.

j l l k Price on Feb 19, 2019


ROFL @ "becoming Weyland Yutani" I think Comcast has beat Disney to that title...

THE_RAW_ on Sep 28, 2018


Yeah, good point.

grimjob on Sep 28, 2018


act. Act. ACT!

DAVIDPD on Sep 27, 2018


Do people really still wanna see this superhero garbage? With a few exceptions, the genre really has partly killed Cinema for me.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Sep 28, 2018


I agree. But... Yes, people are still obsessed with this. Not every one will be a hit, but they still make tons of money.

Alex Billington on Sep 28, 2018


I agree wholeheartedly with what you've said.

Sergio on Sep 28, 2018


also the background song says 'This is the end'... 😀

Bijay Gajmer on Sep 28, 2018


I love Sophie as Sansa but there's a reason they show her as little as possible in this trailer... same reason they showed Alden Ehrenreich as little as possible in the Solo trailer. Oof.
