20th Century Fox’s last hurrah with the Marvel X-Men franchise is upon us, having recently released the Dark Phoenix official trailer. And with the low promotion of what seems to be a decent film following off the heals of Logan, it is sad to see things not getting the support it would have if the Disney/Fox merger was not underway.
And now the release of the international trailer seems to prove more our point, with extra footage and insight into the narrative, Dark Phoenix looks to portray Marvels greatest X-Men narrative arc the right way.
In X-MEN: 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 spiraling 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 weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
