The first trailer for Fox’s Dark Phoenix has been released, revealing the X-Men are about to get cosmic. With a primary focus on Jean Grey—hence the movie being called Dark Phoenix—the film will see the X-Men come up against their most powerful foe yet.
To get a better idea of the movie’s plot, below is its official synopsis:
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 insider her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together.
The plot synopsis goes on to reveal that once Jean is imbued with her new powers, an alien race attempts to weaponize her and rule the galaxy. The trailer actually reveals one of these aliens played by Jessica Chastain.
According to actor Sophie Turner, who plays Jean Grey, Chastain’s new character seeks to manipulate Jean into doing bad things. Director Simon Kinberg added that Chastain’s character is loosely based on a character named Mastermind.
Further complicating matters, according to the trailer, is a previous incident between Charles Xavier and Jean. Soon, the X-Men start to blame him for what happens to her, but he maintains that what he did was to protect her.
It’s all very intriguing. We’ll see how it plays out when Dark Phoenix hits theaters on February 14, 2019.
