In case you missed it last night, the first trailer for the long-delayed X-Men film, now called ‘Dark Phoenix’ is finally out. We’ve watched it a few times and we aren’t blown away, but we know it’s just a first trailer. One thing that had us surprised is that they included a pretty obvious spoiler as to who is the person being mourned in the funeral. It’s not a super surprising spoiler, but still kind of odd that they’d give it away this quickly.


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.
