The new X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer is straight fire

The new X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer is straight fire

The new X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer is FINALLY out, and the hype is as hot as the Dark Phoenix herself!

The latest installment of the X-Men franchise focuses on the turmoil-stricken Jean Grey, played by Sophie Turner, as she wrestles to maintain control over the often unstable, growing power within her, putting her friends at risk and gaining the attention of Jessica Chastian’s villainous Smith. 

Yet another person telling Jean Grey how special she is.

The trailer begins with Mystique approaching Jean and insisting she isn’t giving up on her, only for Jean to lose control of her power and blast Mystique away from her. Judging by how this is intercut with a scene of Jean crying in the rain and a voice over having to hurt a friend, it seems Mystique is no longer. So long, J Law. It’s been real.

But where her friends struggle to reach her, along comes another so-called “friend” in the form of Smith, who tells Jean how special she can be if she only stops fighting what is within her. And thus we reach the crux of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the war within Jean Grey between good and evil. The drama will unfold in theaters June 7th, 2019, but you can watch the trailer below! 

What do you guys think of the new trailer? Are you upset over the (apparent) death of Mystique? What do you think will become of Jean Grey? Let me know in the comments 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 liked most of the Fox X-Men stuff and am not psyched for Disney to get it.
