Fans of Fox’s X-Men universe can expect a new trailer for the upcoming Simon Kinberg-directed Dark Phoenix sometime soon. We can say this because a new trailer, length 2:24, was just rated by the Motion Picture Association of America for the film.
According to our friends over at TrailerTrack, Wednesday could be a likely drop date as Jessica Chastain will be appearing on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon that night. There was even a (now deleted) post on the Japanese Dark Phoenix Twitter account stating that a trailer was expected to hit on Thursday in Japanese timezones.
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.
Dark Phoenix stars Michael Fassbender, Evan Peters, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Jessica Chastain, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Alexandra Shipp.
It’ll hit theaters on June 7th, 2019.
