First X-Men 7 Photos Reveal Dark Phoenix

First X-Men 7 Photos Reveal Dark Phoenix

This all comes from the cover story of Entertainment Weekly's upcoming issue, which also finds McAvoy calling Dark Phoenix: "the most emotional X-Men we've done and the most pathos-driven".

Producer Simon Kinberg and the cast gave EW some insight into the project. Audiences saw a similar storyline in 2006's The Last Stand, when Famke Janssen portrayed an adult Jean, but the screenplay sidelined Grey's subplot and the film wasn't well-received.

Read on to see all the other details we've been able to scrape together ahead of the film's 2018 release.

As the holidays near, 20th Century Fox has delivered a gift of goodies to X-Men fans.

Ubisoft delays Far Cry 5, The Crew 2 and another unannounced title
In other words, the delay of Far Cry 5 has angered some gamers that were counting the days until its release. If the company was on track for a February release, these last 30 days can be used for finishing touches.


The film will focus on Turner's Jean Grey as it features the story of the Dark Phoenix saga from the X-Men comics. Simon Kinberg, who wrote The Last Stand, gets a second chance as a writer and director for Dark Phoenix.

After the X-Men team is dispatched to space for a rescue mission, a solar flare hits the X-Jet and the surge of energy ignites a malevolent, power-hungry new force within Jean - the Phoenix.

Jessica Chastain isn't the only new person to join Dark Phoenix. However, Chastain is rocking the silver locks.

When it was announced that Oscar-nominated actress would play a villain in the flick, many assumed it would be Shi'ar Empress Lilandra Neramani because that character factors heavily into the Dark Phoenix comic storyline. EW described Chastain's character as an "otherwordly shapeshifter who manipulates Phoenix for her own agenda". I'm not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles.

Philadelphia 76ers trade Jahlil Okafor to Nets
McConnell, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, and Jerryd Bayless were the main options 76ers' head coach Brett Brown chose to go with. The 76ers are now fifth in the Eastern Conference standings, while the Nets are hovering outside playoff contention.


Entertainment Weekly's "First Look" explores all the big movies coming our way. (He even graces the cover of Time magazine in the film.) As a result, his "growing ego" starts to endanger the team.

Here's a funeral shot with Professor X (James McAvoy), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Storm (Alexandra Shipp) in mourning.

Lastly, it's important to realize that this will be the X-Men's first film with an intergalactic angle to it. That suffering is nearly certainly going to come at the hands of Jessica Chastain's villain - Lilandra, Empress of the Shi'ar Empire.
