New Official Trailer For ‘Dark Phoenix,’ Fox’s Latest ‘X-Men’ Movie

20th Century Fox just dropped their new trailer for their upcoming X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix. This newest X-Men film is adapted from the famous Dark Phoenix comic and after watching the trailer it seems to be pulling a few story points from 2006’s X-Men: Last Stand. Check out the trailer below!

The film stars Sophie Turner in the leading role as Jean Grey with James McAvoy returnig as Charles Xavier, Jennifer Larence as Mystique, and Evan Peters as Quicksilver. And also shows Michael Fassbender returning as Magneto alongside Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Red Lotus (Andrew Stehlin), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

Now, the point of a trailer is to get people excited for an upcoming project. Did this trailer do its job? For me, no. First off they have spoiled the death of one of the main characters. Its not even an accidental spoiler. The entire trailer revolves around the death of Mystique. And as far as trailer structure goes, its messy – something that is probably reflective of the film its advertising. Up until now its been said that the main threat would be Jean who is taken over by the Phoenix force. But who are those guys on the train with the X-Men in chains?

After seeing this trailer I have to admint, I’m not looking forward to this film. And it is unfortunate, because this may be the last time we see an X-Men film that is handled by Fox. With the Disney buyout of Fox on the horizon this is an almost assured inevitability. Also, I have heard from someone, who knows someone, that has seen early cuts of the film. And their consensus – its not good, not only is it not good, its terrible. I didn’t want to put too much stock in the rumor, however after seeing this trailer I tend to believe it now.

However, take all of that with a grain of salt. We have seen great movies with terrible trailers before.

What did you think of the trailer? Are you excited for the new movie, or not? Leave a comment below and let’s make a discussion about it.
