Simon Kinberg’s oft-delayed X-men film finally resurfaced with a new trailer and release date. The final mutant installment on FOX was set to premiere this November. But after
terrible reviews multiple re-shoots to the third act, the second telling of Jean Grey’s Phoenix saga will drop February 14, 2019.
This time around the adaptation is to be more aligned with the comics’ original narrative. With Sophie Turner (Games of Thrones) reprising her role as the titular telepath, fans will witness her and the X-Men’s struggle to save them all from the cosmic force that is the Phoenix.
I wasn’t moved – but hopefully this version will be better than The Last Stand.
