Dark Phoenix: Jean Grey Rises In Final Trailer For X-Men Film

It feels good being bad, doesn't it, Jean?

The final trailer for Dark Phoenix, the last entry in the X-Men franchise hailing from studio 20th Century Fox, hit the internet on Wednesday, a few months out from the film's launch this June. 

Though it doesn't offer a ton of additional information by way of the plot — it hits many of the same narrative beats as past trailers have, taking us through the timeline of Jean Grey's (Sophie Turner) metamorphosis into her sinister alter-ego the Dark Phoenix — but it does feature some super-tasty new footage that should boost hype for the film. 

There are fresh looks at the inciting incident, the space rescue mission gone wrong that sees Jean get struck by the cosmic force that takes over her body; shots of Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) darting around his opponents in what's bound to be a thrilling fight scene; and a moment where Storm (Alexandra Shipp) pulls lightning from the sky and sends it crackling down to the earth. 

Arguably the best part of the trailer comes when Jean admits to the allure of the Dark Phoenix. Where in other trailers Jean was entirely remorseful about the atrocities she had committed while under the Phoenix's influence, in this final trailer, she touches on the other side of the coin. 

"When I lose control, bad things happen," Jean says. "But it feels good."

Elsewhere in the trailer, we get somewhat of a hint that Jean could kill more members of her X-Men family (a previously released trailer already revealed that Jean unwittingly murdered Mystique), as well as a closer glimpse at Genosha, Magneto's (Michael Fassbender) mutant paradise he built atop scrap metal. Jean pays Magneto a little visit there, and nearly beheads him when she takes down a helicopter. 

If that's not indication that little miss Jean Grey might go full-tilt evil in Dark Phoenix, we don't know what is. 

Also starring James McAvoy as Professor X, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, and Jessica Chastain as a still-unnamed alien who manipulates Jean's dark side, Dark Phoenix will open in theaters on June 7.
