20th Century Fox has released a new video for Dark Phoenix celebrating the X-Men film series. You can see the video below, which features the stars of Dark Phoenix reflecting on the history of a series that began back in 2000 with the original X-Men movie. The new film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sophie Turner, and Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain and opens on June 7th.

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.
