Sophie Turner's "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" Performance Looks Epic

After two decades, Dark Phoenix finally gets the story she deserves.

Guys, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is out next week, and I'm so bloody excited.

As someone who's watched the trailer close to 20 times, it's safe to say that this is going to be the best X-Men movie yet.

First of all, Jean Grey is FINALLY getting the narrative she deserves.

20th Century Fox

Let's be honest, Jean has always been one of the best X-Men. She is both a hero and villain, which is what makes her so damn relatable. We've all battled with our darker side and the film shows the evolution of Jean into one of the most powerful forces in the universe, the Dark Phoenix.

With great power comes great consequences!

20th Century Fox

Jean loses control over her powers, tearing the X-Men family apart and forcing them to make a decision about whether to save one of their own or all of humankind.

The film explores the origins of the Phoenix's powers by introducing a sinister new character who introduces the cosmic force that inhabits Jean's body.

Is it an alter ego of sorts, or is it just uncontrollable power that's leading Grey astray?

While the exact role of this character is unknown, it does wreak all kinds of havoc, making this the most complex and intense X-Men film yet.

20th Century Fox

And we're here for it.

Jean is being played by Game of Thrones alum, Sophie Turner. Sophie Turner.

If you’re not following her yet, you’re missing out. This woman is a GIFT.

And she isn't the only A-Lister we'll be seeing. Between Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, this film is STACKED.

20th Century Fox

When it comes to the fate of Jean Grey, the whole crew is divided, making us unsure about who to back.

20th Century Fox

The stakes are higher than ever – it's clear Magneto wants Jean dead and everyone's favourite character, Cyclops, wants to save her. Jury's out on the rest of the gang, though.

It seems like we might even be turning on our beloved Professor X, which is giving us some serious feels.

20th Century Fox

Word is we might be more sympathetic to Magneto in this film. Say it isn't so!

And let's not forget how STUNNING the special effects in this film look.

All roads have led here for our characters. Will the X-Men be destroyed? Who will survive?

It looks like the X-Men’s final battle will be epic! We can’t wait to see how it all ends.
