Sophie Turner's Jean Grey transforms into the Dark Phoenix on a new motion poster for 20th Century Fox's Dark Phoenix.
The X-Men film franchise's official Twitter account released the poster, accompanied with a slight nod to the Game of Thrones series, which features Turner as Sansa Stark. The message, played along with poster, says, "The game is over, now the Phoenix will rise."
Dark Phoenix is based on the X-Men comic storyline The Dark Phoenix Saga, by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. The storyline was previously adapted in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, but was not well-received by fans or critics. Dark Phoenix's director, Simon Kinberg, promises a different outcome with this film, saying that this version is more faithful to the source material.
Directed and written by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy as Charles Xavier/Professor X, Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkhölme/Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy/Beast, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey/Phoenix, Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers/Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Ororo Munroe/Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler, Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver and Jessica Chastain. The film arrives in theaters June 7.
