Yet another tv spot for Dark Phoenix has made it’s way onto the internet, and we’re still not sure how we feel about the film.
Reports from last week claimed the last round of reshoots for the film had moved the “epic final battle” from space to a…..train car. At first, we thought maybe this was just a rumor- but the more we see of the film from their advertising, the more this seems like the truth.
Obviously, we knew a train scene was going to be in the film, as it was featured heavily in the second trailer, but, having the finale NOT be in space? For Dark Phoenix? Seems a little strange.We REALLY don’t want another X-Men: The Last Stand situation here, but…
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. Simon Kinberg directs.
It’ll hit theaters on June 7th, 2019.
