Here is the trailer for ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’, the final installment of the saga, with Jessica Chastain as villain
The X-Men are back for the last time! Here we have the awaited first trailer of ‘Dark Phoenix’ (‘Dark Phoenix’), the final installment of the mutant saga as we know it. Recall that the rights of the characters return to Marvel after the sale of Fox to Disney so sooner or later a reboot will be announced with the X-Men sharing the universe with the superheroes who survive the end of ‘Avengers 4’.
Initially the premiere was announced for November but the date was delayed Dark Phoenix full movie to be able to shoot new scenes (as well as the spin-off ‘The new mutants’); we can see it in February 2019. As we already knew, the new installment tells us again part of the plot of ‘X-Men 3: The final decision’, with Jean Gray turned despite himself into the biggest threat to his friends. In place of Famke Janssen we have Sophie Turner, who already embodied Jean in the disappointing ‘Apocalypse’.
In ‘X-MEN: FÉNIX OSCURA’, the mutants face their most formidable and powerful enemy: one of its members, Jean Gray. During a rescue mission in space, Jean almost died to be reached by a mysterious cosmic force. When he returns home, this force has not only made her infinitely more powerful, but also much more unstable.
While struggling with the entity that dwells within him, Jean unleashes his powers in ways he can not control or comprehend. Jean falls into a spiral out of control hurting those she loves most and begins to destroy the bonds that hold the X-Men together. The family falls apart and they must find a way to unite, not only to save Jean’s soul, but also to save the planet from aliens who want to transform this force into a weapon and conquer the galaxy …
Once again, the X-Men franchise has a spectacular cast: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters and the aforementioned Turner act in This is Dark Phoenix. Undoubtedly, the big news is the signing of Chastain as the new villain, and this time it seems that we can enjoy his work, unlike what happened with Oscar Isaac in the previous installment.
The trailer has exciting moments and the cast is a reason enough to be interested in the film, but it gives the impression that it will not contribute anything that we have not seen before. I wish I was wrong … At the moment it does not reassure me that Simon Kinberg has taken care of the staging. Debuts here as a director after being a scriptwriter and producer of titles such as ‘Jumper’, ‘This is the war’, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ or the reboot of ‘Fantastic Four’, among other titles.
