Marvel's mutant superheroes will face their greatest threat in June.
20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for Dark Phoenix. The film is now poised to be the studio's final entry in the main X-Men film series before Disney and Marvel Studios take the reins of the franchise. Following a couple of delays, the movie is now set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019.
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 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.
