Written and directed by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand), X-Men: Dark Phoenix is the twelfth film in the X-Men film series.

The story is based off of the popular ‘The Dark Phoenix Saga’ arc done by Christopher Claremont during his first run on The Uncanny X-Men comic book. In the story, X-Man Jean Grey, during a mission in space, bonds with the Phoenix force (an immortal and immutable manifestation of the universal force of life and passion) and is corrupted, eventually driven mad by her newfound power, and brought into a confrontation with everyone else.

Fox has released an international trailer for the film:

“They’re right to fear me.”

Toruk's Take

Ugh, dour and lackluster. My feelings about this one still haven’t changed.

Simon Kinberg is trash and so are his movies.

Dark Phoenix starring James McAvoy,Michael Fassbender,Jennifer Lawrence,Nicholas Hoult,Sophie Turner,Tye Sheridan,Alexandra Shipp,Kodi Smit-McPhee,Evan Peters and Jessica Chastain is scheduled to bore theaters February 14th, 2019.
