The first trailer of 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' is here

X-Men Dark Phoenix

Now, thanks to their time-traveling antics, the X-Men movies are getting a second chance to do a more direct adaptation of the story in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and the first trailer is a foreboding one.

But it's the ninth X-Men film in 19 years - so do you think it will be worth watching or are you exhausted of all the X-Men films? The highly anticipated film is an adaption of the storyline from the comics of the Dark Phoenix force that tries to take over Jean's mind, and we see the stakes at play here in the trailer.

Dark Phoenix takes place 10 years on from the events of X-Men: Apocalypse and is set to launch a new trilogy in the X-Men world that will focus on the younger versions of the original characters. The movie was dismissed by many fans, though her performance got no specific hatred.

The plot of the film centres on Jean as she struggles to control her powers following a space mission gone wrong.

When Dark Phoenix begins, Erik leading a group of outcasts on mutant-friendly island Genosha.

What did you think of the trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix?

It means that the X-Men are forced to go up against not only one of the most powerful villains they have ever faced, but they will also have to go up against their best friend Jean, as she battles to stop Phoenix from hurting her loved ones. As such, it's been adapted a few times, including elements of the story being used for the plot of the movie X-Men: The Last Stand.

"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 weaponise this force and rule the galaxy". As such, we've gone through the trailer and pulled out 50 screengrabs to take a closer look at what's in store for audiences when the follow-up hits theaters next Valentine's Day.

Written and directed by Simon, who also served as the scriptwriter for the 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, the film is scheduled to release on February 14, 2019. The cast includes many old and new members: James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Peters, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, plus Jessica Chastain, Ato Essandoh, and Scott Shepherd. I'll keep it relatively mysterious but it is a cosmic story in a way that is extraterrestrial, which is something we've never done in the X-Men movies before but is obviously something that is integral to the Dark Phoenix story so I felt we couldn't' do what we did on X3 and ignore that.
