Fresh footage of Fox’s next X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been released and boy, it is heavy. The footage was unveiled when one of the biggest stars of the movie Jessica Chastain made her visit to The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. So far, we just know that she is playing a mysterious foe in the movie and nothing further has been revealed about her character.
The video is down below and you can have a look at the intense scene which features James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Sophie Turner, and Jessica Chastain. The scene clearly tells us that the movie is going to be really dark and intense.
I know you’re thrilled by this and want to see this movie as soon as possible but because of multiple rescheduling of the movie, the fans have been a bit upset. But, the director of the movie Simon Kinberg addressed the concern and stated his views in an interview. He said,
“Movies get pushed all the time,” Kinberg added. “I remember JJ [Abrams] pushed Star Trek a year, then he pushed Star Wars a year, and those movies turned out great, and our movie’s turned out great as well. We really wanted to wait until the visual effects…the biggest challenge of this movie in terms of time is visual effects. There’s a lot of visual effects in this movie. They’re really intricate, more intricate than we’ve ever had in these films, partly because it goes into outer space and that’s hard to render.”
“And the movie will be done in actually just a couple of months and you look at the calendar and you start to see competitively where the best place for it to be released would be, the best time, and the studio felt like it warranted a big summer blockbuster release because it became, despite its intimacy, a very big-scale film. So we started looking at summer and that was the perfect date for it in the summer.”
Now finally, the movie is going to release on June 7th. Are you excited? Tell us in the comments section down below.
