‘Dark Phoenix’ trailer debuts, film then delayed

Dark Phoenix is finally being unveiled for fans in the first official trailer. Days later, the studio announced the film will be pushed back to next summer, from February 14 to a June release date. (We can only presume they’ll need a new poster)

The film adapts Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s famous Dark Phoenix Saga, in which powerful mutant Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) transforms into a very powerful, and very dangerous, destructive force.

Check out the Dark Phoenix trailer below.

A lengthy post-production process coupled with a reshoot delays pushed the film all the way into 2019 and now director Simon Kinberg’s film will arrive during the busy summer schedule.

Turner will be joined by the cast from X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Evan Peters.

One new addition to the cast is Jessica Chastain, playing a shapeshifter who manipulates Jean. The new footage reveals how McAvoy’s Professor X/Charles help Jean suppress Jean’s darker impulses in her childhood.

“You feel like you don’t belong here, you don’t,” Chastain’s character teases to Jean when she visits a church.

Dark Phoenix arrives in theaters June 7, 2019.

Official synopsis:

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.
