20th Century Fox have this afternoon announced that the first trailer for the long awaited X-Men sequel, Dark Phoenix, will be aired tonight on the Late Late Show in the US, and will arrive online around the same time.
The film, which was originally scheduled to release November this year but was pushed back to allow for reshoots, also has it’s first official synopsis and poster!
“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.”
