Most probably the last X-Men movie in the FOX’s current run , the Simon Kinberg directorial debut hits theaters next year Valentine’s Day. While there might not be a lot of buzz surrounding the flick , the plot and setting is derived from one of the iconic Marvel lore ever crafted.
An epic cosmic saga build around the extra-ordinarily powerful Jean Grey and the uber powerful Phoenix entity is FOX’s reattempt after their 2006 film X-Men : The Last Stand featuring Famken Janssen in the iconic role. This one , according to the film-maker , will try to ground the movie with drama.
Have a look at the theatrical poster of the movie that featured a while ago in the official site :
The movie will see some familiar faces return with the likes of James McVoy as Charles Xavier , Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr , Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique , Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters in their respective X-Men roles.
The movie will also feature Jessica Chastain as an antagonist , who is sill yet unknown. For a while it was rumored she will play the Skrull , the same shape-shifting Skrulls that Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers will be encountering in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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.
