See Sophie Turner Lose Control in X-Men's Dark Phoenix Trailer

See Sophie Turner Lose Control in X-Men's Dark Phoenix Trailer

Arguably the best part of the trailer comes when Jean admits to the allure of the Dark Phoenix. From the shuttle rescue that she and the rest of the crew are sent to execute, straight to her confrontation with Magneto, we see some slick storytelling at work.

This morning, 20th Century Fox released what will reportedly be the final trailer for Simon Kinberg's film, and appropriately enough, the ominous preview keeps the spotlight on Sophie Turner in the title role. That's some pretty damned powerful mutation at work there.

Following Disney's recent purchase of Fox's entertainment assets, the future of the X-Men on the big screen remains unclear. The timing to remind everyone seems right, too, seeing as the final trailer for Dark Phoenix dropped today, just three days after the premiere of Game of Thrones.

Does Jean Grey start controlling other X-Men with her mind? The video starts with the X-Men going on a mission to space, wherein Jean is almost killed when a mysterious cosmic force hits her. Sophie Turner makes a powerful entry as she unleashes her new-found powers on X-Men. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. As she struggles to manage these new abilities, she begins to lose control-putting the world and her X-Men family in danger. While Apocalypse may have faltered, we can only hope that Dark Pheonix can right some of the wrongs, and cap off this new generation of X-Men films in a big way.

Dark Phoenix flaps into theaters on June 7, 2019.
