The final trailer for Dark Phoenix is here, and it has given us new details on what to expect from the story. You can see the trailer below for the last X-Men film under Fox’s purview. The film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain and opens on June 7th.

The new trailer gives a bit more detail on the mission to space that causes Jean (Turner) to be possessed by the Phoenix Force, and teases a bit more of Chastain’s still-mysterious character. The conflict between Magneto and Jean is made more explicit as well; Fassbender’s Master of Magnetism clearly has designs on putting Jean down, against the Charles and the X-Men’s objections…and, as it turns out, to Magneto’s peril when he find sout just how formidable the new Jean is.

In Dark Phoenix, during a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.
