Disney together with 20th century Fox released new video footage for the X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The clip depicts X-men getting back from their missions in space which is in turn celebrated by Professor X and all the students at the ‘ Xavier Institute’. “That mission, in which Jean Grey should have died but miraculously survived, sets the event of Dark Phoenix‘s larger story into motion. For her part, Mystique is not enjoying playing at being a superhero. Watch the clip above.”
The X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe when one of their own, Jean Grey, starts to spiral out of control. During a rescue mission in outer space, Jean is nearly killed when she’s hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. 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.
The movie is majorly written by ‘Simon Kinberg and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.’
In a recent interview, Simon Kinberg made his views on the reshifting of the movie clear to the general public. He said, “Movies get pushed all the time. I remember JJ pushed Star Trek a year, then he pushed Star Wars a year, and those movies turned out great, and our movie’s turned out great as well. We really wanted to wait until the visual effects…the biggest challenge of this movie in terms of time is visual effects. There’s a lot of visual effects in this movie. They’re really intricate, more intricate than we’ve ever had in these films, partly because it goes into outer space and that’s hard to render. And the movie will be done in actually just a couple of months and you look at the calendar and you start to see competitively where the best place for it to be released would be, the best time, and the studio felt like it warranted a big summer blockbuster release because it became, despite its intimacy, a very big-scale film. So we started looking at summer and that was the perfect date for it in the summer.”
