The first trailer has arrived for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the twelfth instalment in the long-running X-Men franchise.
The new film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp and Jessica Chastain. Take a look at the trailer below:
In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain.
With Jean spiralling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponise this force and rule the galaxy.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is directed by Simon Kinberg, who also wrote the screenplay. The film is the follow-up to 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse and the first X-Men Universe film since Deadpool 2 earlier this year.
A motion poster has also been released, which you can see below:
