‘X-Men Dark Phoenix’: Tye Sheridan says the new film is more ‘drama’ than ‘superhero film’

The publicity surrounding the new X-Men film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, not a traditional superhero film. Co-star Tye Sheridan has said that X-Men: Dark Phoenix is a more drama than a superhero movie.

In an interview with The Wrap at South by Southwest in Austin Texas, Sheridan teased that Jean Grey aka Phoenix, played again by Sophie Turner goes “crazy” in the new film.

“Well, Cyclops doesn’t think she’s going crazy — Cyclops just thinks she’s gotta work some stuff out. It’s interesting, the drama in the movie. We treated this movie as much more of a drama versus a superhero film,” Sheridan said.

Jennifer Lawrence who plays Raven aka Mystique in X-Men movies had said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that all the characters in the movie are taking the biggest, most extreme dives into their emotions than they have in the whole series.

“We have really great action scenes and we go to space like within the first five minutes of the movie.”

The new movie, set in 1992 and centers around Turner’s Jean Grey and her transformation into the titular Phoenix, which wreaks havoc on her friends and threatens the world. Dark Phoenix marks the directorial debut of Simon Kinberg, who co-wrote and/or wrote The Last StandDays of Future Past, and Apocalypse and also produced those X-Men films.

James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier is back and has said that it’s a very emotional outing: “This is probably the most emotional X-Men we’ve done and the most pathos-driven,” McAvoy says. “There’s a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering.”

X-Men: Dark Phoenix also stars Jessica Chastain, Michael Fassbender, Olivia Munn, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters and Alexandra Shipp.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix arrives in theaters on November 2, 2018.
