The new “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” trailer is out, and it may be the last in a series of X-Men movies, such as “X-Men: First Class” from 2011, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” in 2014, and “X-Men: Apocalypse” in 2016.
The story centers around the character Phoenix, also known as Jean Grey and played by Sophie Turner, as she develops her supreme yet unstable powers that might ruin her and the people around her, even as a young child.
As she arrives at the X-Mansion, Xavier Institute, she says that people think Professor X can fix her.
However, troubles arise, and Jean threatens the “mutant family.” They have to figure out a way to save Jean’s soul and the planet.
“You think you don’t belong here? You don’t,” X-Men’s rival Smith played by Jessica Chastain says to Jean in the trailer. “They can’t begin to comprehend what you are.”
Director and writer Simon Kinberg told IGN that Smith is not from our planet, so the new movie spends a fair amount of time in space. He also said that the film operates at two levels: a very personal story about Jean, and an intergalactic story with extraterrestrial forces involved.
In the new trailer, everyone seems to resent James McAvoy’s Professor Charles Xavier for a controversial choice he makes. Jean also feels she’s abandoned by him and by everyone she loves or associates with.
The audience can also see the return of Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, and Alexandra Shipp as Storm.
“X-Men: Dark Phoenix” will in theaters on Feb. 14, 2019.
