The X-Men Take on One of Their Own in New Trailer for ‘Dark Phoenix’

Allegiances are broken as the X-Men are forced to battle one of their own in the upcoming Dark Phoenix from director Simon Kinberg.

When Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) discovers that a powerful cosmic force known as the Phoenix is growing inside her, the X-Men must come together (or apart) to try and save Jean from destroying them all.

With further influence from the film’s new, unnamed character played by Jessica Chastain, Jean will also need to battle the Phoenix from within, before it takes full control of her.

The film’s new trailer teases an epic (likely) finale to the modern reboot of the X-Men films.

I say likely because now that the X-Men property has been acquired by Disney, it’s possible that this will be the last film in the series featuring this particular cast.

Most of the characters from First Class (2011), Days of Future Past (2014) and Apocalypse (2016) are back in this fourth instalment and it looks to be the biggest film of the lot.

There are some awesome action set pieces teased in the new trailer below as the X-Men are sent to outer space to battle the Phoenix, an entity whose power supersedes that of even Charles Xavier’s (James McAvoy) – one of the most powerful mutants in the X-Men universe.

Furthermore, the death of a prominent character is teased in the trailer, though we won’t know for certain whether that will stick until the film’s release on 7 June 2019.

Check out the cool new trailer below.
