Last night, 20th Century Fox dropped the second trailer for its upcoming Marvel epic, X-Men: Dark Phoenix. At two and a half minutes long, this new clip is a deeper dive into the peril facing the X-Men at the hands of one of their own, Jean Grey (aka Phoenix), as she is taken over by dark, god-like powers and starts to threaten her friends and the world.
Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) stars as Grey, who has been hit by a cosmic force during a space rescue mission and returns to Earth unstable and ridiculously powerful. As she struggles to regain control of her abilities and inches closer to the dark side, chaos erupts. “When I lose control, bad things happen,” she says in the trailer. Watch above.
As well as the trailer, Fox has released a new poster depicting Grey/Phoenix’s inner battle between dark and light.
The film is written and directed by Simon Kinberg (Logan). Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor Charles Xavier), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Jessica Chastain (Smith), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), and Michael Fassbender (Magneto) all star alongside Turner.
Dark Phoenix arrives in theaters on June 7.
