X-Men: Dark Phoenix
In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars Sophie Turner, Jennifer Lawrence, Tye Sheridan, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy. Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee.
The movie stars two (2) of my favourite female actresses namely Sophie Turner (ie. Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones) and Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger Games trilogy) and thus is reason enough for me to see it!
X-Men: Dark Phoenix opens in Malaysian cinemas on 6 June 2019.
