The trailer for Dark Phoenix is here — and it’s jam-packed with familiar faces.
Professor X (James McAvoy) replies, “Jean, you are not broken.”
While Jean learns the extent of her own abilities — tapping her feet together to cause a car crash — Professor X explains, “I had to keep her stable. I protected her.”
“From the truth?” Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) shoots back. “There’s another word for that.”
As Jean uses her powers for destruction — manipulating a helicopter and flipping over police cars — Professor X bemoans, “The world is on the brink. I am sorry I didn’t stop it sooner.”
“You’re always sorry, Charles,” responds Magneto (Michael Fassbender). “And there’s always a speech. And nobody cares.”
“They’re right to fear me,” Jean warns, forcing the X-Men to band together to protect themselves and the planet from the forces of evil she has unleashed.
In December, Lawrence opened up to Entertainment Weekly about working with director Simon Kinberg on Dark Phoenix.
“Acting-wise it was the best experience I’ve had [on these films],” Lawrence said. “He’s been writing these characters for so long and he knows them so deeply. I suddenly felt more connected to my character than I ever have been before.”

Filming struck Lawrence as unique. “It was unrecognizable,” she continued. “Everything was on time. Everything was organized. These movies have always been fun amidst chaos, and now they were fun with no chaos.”
