Can director Simon Kinberg pull off a miracle in what may be the final installment of the X-Men franchise from 20th Century Fox? I say miracle because the film was plagued with production problems and delays. The trailer looks good, which is what they are supposed to do, but I have a tad bit more hope than I had yesterday for the film. #AFJ4LIFE
Synopsis: 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.
