‘Dark Phoenix’ Trailer: The X-Men May Be Experiencing Some Déjà Vu

Dark Phoenix starring Sophie Turner

Dark Phoenix may be the final X-Men film under the 20th Century Fox banner before it goes over to Disney. If that is the case, then they will be going out on their own terms. And it looks like director Simon Kinberg could end the franchise with a story arc that we have already seen before: “The Dark Phoenix Saga.”

In it, Jean Grey becomes possessed by a cosmic entity and kills nearly all of life in the process. With the X-Men trying to regain control of their friend, there are outside forces that seek to manipulate her. And now we are seeing more of that, and how the new villain (Jessica Chastain) will stop at nothing to use Jean’s (Sophie Turner) new powers for her own nefarious goals. Fox has released a new trailer for Dark Phoenix, and you can check it out below.

Dark Phoenix Trailer Header

Dark Phoenix, the latest installment in the X-Men film franchise, was supposed to be released in November. But the film needed some additional photography and reshoots, and as a result, it pushed the release date to February of next year. Whether or not this was a sign of trouble is unknown. But at least we get to finally see what has become of Simon Kinberg‘s directorial debut.

Fox has dropped the first trailer for Dark Phoenix, which is based on the story arc of the same name which sees Jean Grey, one of the most powerful members of the X-Men, fuse with a cosmic entity who has the power to destroy the entire galaxy. Check out the trailer and a new poster below.

X-Men: Apocalypse Jean Grey

And this time, we will get it right. Or at least we can hope that Simon Kinberg gets it right as he makes his directorial debut with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which as you could have guessed, will be a loose adaptation of the “Dark Phoenix Saga” comics storyline written by Chris Claremont. Though, this wouldn’t be the first time that the X-Men franchise has attempted Dark Phoenix in a film. In 2006, X-Men: The Last Stand tried to use a resurrected Jean Grey (then played by Famke Janssen) as the Dark Phoenix who was being manipulated by Magneto (then played by Ian McKellen).

Now with the film franchise’s timeline being rebooted, we can look forward to some wrongs being righted. We are getting our first look at Dark Phoenix, which includes our very first peek at Jessica Chastain‘s villainous character. Check them out below.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: Season 6

And so it has come to this. Five episodes of “My Roanoke Nightmare”, followed by four of “3 Days in Hell: Return to Roanoke” and for the third time in one season, American Horror Story is throwing a wrench in the spokes of our bike. The Miller family, Matt (Andre Holland) and Shelby (Lily Rabe) are dead. The actors that played them in the TV series, Dominic (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Audrey (Sarah Paulson) are dead. Everyone is dead… except for Lee Harris (Adina Porter), Matt’s sister. Lee somehow managed to survive the haunted North Carolina estate twice. She is far from being an innocent survivor. She admitted on camera; thought to be her last words, that she did in fact murder her ex-husband, and under possession, she murdered Monet (Angela Bassett) and tried to kill Audrey. Now she joins Lana Winters (Paulson) for a Barbara Walters style TV interview to discuss and reflect on the events she’s been through and witnessed.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: Season 6

Last week on American Horror Story, the cast was thinned even more. After smashing her husband’s head in a Negan-esque scene, Shelby (Lily Rabe) committed suicide in front of Dominic (Cuba Gooding Jr). Lee (Adina Porter), Audrey (Sarah Paulson), and Monet (Angela Bassett) somehow escaped the Polk family, despite Lee losing an ear and plenty of flesh, and Audrey down a tooth. They murdered Momma and Baby Boy Polk on their way out, unfortunately leaving behind video evidence. Monet was lost in the woods, and when Lee and Audrey get back to the house and find Shelby’s body, they kick Dominic out right into the grasp of Piggy Man and soon, we’re down one more. We know only one person from the spinoff, Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell survives and we’re running out of candidates. Just then Dylan (Wes Bentley) showed up dressed as Piggy Man.

Spoilers for this week’s AHS: Roanoke below.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: Season 6

How in hell are they going to top last week?! Last week, American Horror Story put The Walking Dead on notice: you do NOT own the rights to shock and awe horror television. First there was rogue Agnes (Kathy Bates). Gone full psycho after being left off the reality-based show “3 Days in Hell: Return to Roanoke,” Agnes, still playing The Butcher, carved her way through the cast and crew, including Sidney James (Cheyenne Jackson), the producer who put everything together. Agnes also stabbed Shelby (Lily Rabe) and gave chase to Audrey (Sarah Paulson), Monet (Angela Bassett), and Lee (Adina Porter) into the woods. Back at the house after Matt (Andre Holland) went off for possessed witch sex, Shelby bashed his brains in Negan-style and now her and Dominic (Cuba Gooding Jr) are faced with the real ghosts of Roanoke coming for them on the blood moon. Their first victim: Agnes, who meets the real Butcher.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: Season 6

Last week, the creators of American Horror Story flipped the script in a way rarely, if ever, done before in television history. For five episodes of Season 6 we watched “My Roanoke Nightmare” showing the re-enactments of the Miller family and their harrowing ordeal in a haunted North Carolina colonial mansion. Actors Audrey (Sarah Paulson) and Dominic (Cuba Gooding Jr.) played the roles of Shelby (Lily Rabe) and Matt (Andre Holland), and they were stalked by vengeance-seeking ghosts led The Butcher, portrayed by Agnes Mary Winstead (Kathy Bates). That story we discovered was actually the highest TV show of the year and now producers want a sequel. So director Sidney James (Cheyenne Jackson) has the perfect pitch, “Return To Roanoke: 3 Days In Hell,” where the real characters and the actors who played them come together “Big Brother” style in a haunted reality show. Of course staging the show at a real haunted house does not end well. We are informed by graphic that only one person survives the ordeal and everything recorded is found footage. Already one of the new cast was killed as Rory (Evan Peters) was murdered by the nurse ghosts, fulfilling the “R” for their MURDER wall…

Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

Throughout the first half of season 6 of American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare, we followed the Millers, Matt (Andre Holland) and Shelby (Lily Rabe) telling the cameras their story. Their colonial home in North Carolina was haunted by the first settlers of the Roanoke colony, led by The Butcher, Thomasin White (Kathy Bates). Thomasin, with the help of a witch (Lady Gaga) slaughtered her entire clan and family and have been returning from the dead every blood moon to rid people from their ancestral land. The series, done with “dramatic re-enactments” showed the Miller’s struggle to survive with Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson acting as the Millers.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

What else can they possibly throw at the Miller family? Attacks by locals, pig men, a kidnapped niece, feral kids, an evil ghost clan from the first colony, witch sex!!! And poor Cricket (Leslie Jordan) ended up getting disemboweled. Matt (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Shelby (Sarah Paulson) are now face to face with the Thomasin White aka The Butcher (Kathy Bates) and her clan of ghost colonists ready to once again rid their land of the intruders. Of course, since this season is done through “dramatic re-enactments,” none of the tension we are seeing is actually happening. We get the real Matt and Shelby (Andre Holland and Lily Rabe) giving narration throughout. It speaks so much to the creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan that despite this they maintain in a crazy amount of legit scares and utter creepiness.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

Last week American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare, the Miller family’s descent into madness continued as the search for missing Flora (Saniyya Sidney) escalated. First there was the lost farm housing feral kids. Then Flora’s father Mason (Charles Malik Whitfield) was found as a burned and dead totem in the woods, and Lee (Angela Bassett) was arrested. Matt (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Shelby (Sarah Paulson) are at their wits end, stuck between belief and skepticism. On one hand, there are truly unbelievable things happening involving glass shattering during a seance, bloody letters on their walls, and creepy video tapes. But then when shifty medium Cricket Marlowe (Leslie Jordan) arrives claiming to communicate with the evil spirits of 400-year-old Roanoke ghosts, he casually needs $25,000 to continue “working.”
