The Dark Phoenix rises in new X Men trailer

The Dark Phoenix rises in new X Men trailer

Viewers may remember that X Men: Apocalypse ends with Jean Grey, played by Sophie Turner, going full Phoenix and incinerating the villain Apocalypse. Now, this trailer teases the progression of Jean Grey from a innocent child who mistakenly causes her parents to have a car accident, into the tortured, confused young woman who seeks answers from Magneto when she feels abandoned by Charles Xavier.

As we follow Jean through her transformation, lots of familiar faces are seen in the trailer: we get a glimpse of Evan Peters returning as Quicksilver, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto…and even a new force to be reckoned with, Jessica Chastian as the platinum-haired villain Smith, who seeks out Jean Grey as she sits alone in a church. “You feel like you don’t belong here,” she tells the hopeless Jean when she approaches. “You’re right, you don’t.”

But where does Jean Grey belong, with her growing power bringing the world closer and closer to the brink? We see the X Men attending a rainy funeral in the trailer (watch below), which begs the question: how many lives will be lost due to Jean’s power, and will Jean herself be consumed by it?  What do you think?  Did the trailer get you excited to see the movie or is it making you want to wait for Netflix?  Let me know below!

About The Author

Jackie Torrance

Jackie Torrance grew up in the cornfields of the American Midwest near Gatlin, Nebraska. She was a small, strange child with an affinity for playing near the sewers and setting things on fire. However, as she aged, the plainness and quiet of the Midwest failed to satisfy Jackie's growing yearning for adventure, and on the night of her senior prom, she stole her boyfriend's vintage 1958 Plymouth Fury, and headed out west to Colorado. There she spent several weeks hiking in the mountains and writing a novel whilst staying at the Overlook Hotel. Upon the completion of said novel, she restarted her roadtrip and drove east until she reached Maine. After living a few years in the town of Derry working as a librarian, she relocated to Castle Rock, where she is currently employed as a reporter for the Daily Call. In all seriousness, I'm a Midwestern girl in her senior year of college to get a major in film studies and a minor in screenwriting. I enjoy reading books, listening to classic rock, writing, and drinking whiskey. The only thing true about the above bio is that there's a cornfield across from my house.

    I am VERY undecided on the classic outfits. I think they should not have shown them this early. Didn’t look like it was done cooking.
