Final X-Men: Dark Phoenix Trailer Delivers Evil From Space

X-Men Dark Phoenix Trailer Sophie Turner aka Jean Grey unleashes her power over the mutants

Sure, they'd been done before, but rather poorly.

Does Jean Grey start controlling other X-Men with her mind?

Almost 20 years and 12 films later, Dark Phoenix looks to bring the era of Fox's film franchise to a close. Which means that this movie, Dark Phoenix, will be the swan song for this particular iteration of the X-Men series. The X-Men must now band together to save her soul and battle aliens that want to use Grey's new abilities to rule the galaxy. Enjoy it while you can.

Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.

Of course, there are quite a bit of powers that are used to tell that story as well, and we see Jean not only absorb the alien power force that will turn her into the Phoenix, but she also deflects lightning attacks launched by Storm, and even shatters Magneto's helmet into pieces. As the two-minute sneak peek shows, Sophie Turner's character is hit by a cosmic force during a space mission, giving her new powers. 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.

With all of the high-profile comic book movies soaring into theaters in 2019, one could be forgiven for forgetting that Dark Phoenix (what will probably be Fox's final X-Men film) is still on the way. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we've come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet - one of their own.
