If you are the kind of Marvel Studios cinephile such as myself, then you are probably still reeling from the overall spectacle that was “Avengers: Endgame” and if you haven’t seen it by now I am really wondering why you would even be visiting a site like ours since we live for the stuff over here. Anyway, I am veering off course a little here. Today is the opening of the 20th Century Fox film “Dark Phoenix” which continues the X-Men franchise that was under their control for so many a decade. I’ve posted a few features about this film already and they can all be perused HERE in case you missed anything. As you know by now, Disney purchased Fox and the deal was 100% sealed and the news shared HERE in the Business Section of “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken. You should read that and then see if that side website has anything else you might enjoy. I’m happy to have you visiting but I digress once again, let’s review the theatrical poster, premise and casting once more for the “Dark Phoenix” film.

The Premise: After the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, 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.

FX Networks “Legion” Final Season Official Trailer

When Fox began its “Legion” series, I was mildly curious about it but honestly after the first confusing season was unsure what I wanted to do in terms of following along into its second. Sadly, I never recorded the first few episodes of the next season and didn’t see them On Demand to catch up so I just gave up. According to my geek circle the show confused many so I admit I was surprised when I learned that a third season was looming but here we are at the reveal of that final season trailer. Let’s take a look.

The Premise:
David Haller was diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age, and has been a patient in various psychiatric hospitals since. After Haller has an encounter with a fellow psychiatric patient, he is confronted with the possibility that there may be more to him than mental illness. (thanks Wiki).

20th Century Fox: “Dark Phoenix” Final Trailer (6/7/2019)

I know this sounds horrible to say out loud but with “Avengers: Endgame” only nine days away from being released, I don’t know a single solitary comic book movie fan who is discussing the final 20th Century Fox big screen X-Men release “Dark Phoenix”. Now, perhaps there are some of you new arrivals to the planet who don’t know about either film, so if you click HERE you will see the “Avengers: Endgame” posts while THIS LINK will bring you to any of the “Dark Phoenix” stuff. Since we’ve begun sharing news about this movie, Marvel’s purchase of 20th Century Fox has gone through and eventually we will see a lot of X-Men interplay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Cool your jets though because this isn’t going to happen overnight. This film was supposed to be released in February but now that is happening in June and the Final Trailer has just been released. I’ve embedded it here for you below along with the premise, casting and the Theatrical Poster. Let’s take a look shall we.

20th Century Fox: “Dark Phoenix” TV Spots (Coming 6/7/2019)

When we got the second trailer for “Dark Phoenix” back in February (as seen HERE), I have to admit that it feels like a forever ago because time has been zipping by us and let’s face it – The World of Geekdom is counting down the days until the release of Marvel Studios “Avengers: Endgame” as that is the culmination of some 21 films that preceded it. Now, “Dark Phoenix” is purported to be the final in the series of 20th Century Fox X-Men films because the rights are now again under Marvel Studios control with Disney owning Fox in full. While I anticipate a few more trailers, when it comes to the assorted “TV Spots” I decided to cull them all together here. At the time of this posting, there has only been one but sometimes we see quite a few very short teases to the film hitting the networks. As I notice a new clip, I will add it down below the Official Teaser Poster and mark the date and title for good measure. The full length trailers will keep getting a post of their own so you might want to bookmark this post until the film comes out so you don’t miss any TV Spots. Here we go.

20th Century Fox: “Dark Phoenix” Official Trailer 2 (6/7/2019)

Suffice it to say, a LOT has happened since I shared the first trailer for the 20th Century Fox feature “Dark Phoenix” with the main thing being that the deal by Disney to own the studio was given the nod and the process has begun on the legal side. In time, the X-Men and Fantastic Four licenses will be fully under Disney control for future features. Also, Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” has won all sorts of awards and the world eagerly awaits both “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame” which will both be released before this film hits the theaters. For those who didn’t know the news, “Dark Phoenix” was pushed back a few months and will now be released in June instead of its originally scheduled February. Earlier today a second trailer was released to the public and I’ve embedded it for you all to enjoy and even provided some casting and another teaser poster. Let’s take a look shall we.
