Dark Phoenix | Final Trailer | 20th Century FOX.
In 1975, eight-year-old Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) and her parents are involved in a car accident, ostensibly leaving her an orphan. Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) takes her to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.
In 1992, the X-Men respond to a distress signal from the Space Shuttle Endeavour, which has been critically damaged by solar flare-like energy. While saving the astronauts, Jean is struck by the energy, which she absorbs, saving her team's aircraft from destruction. As a result, her psychic powers are greatly amplified, but they become uncontrollable, and she accidentally unleashes her power on mutants celebrating the victory at Xavier's school. Xavier had placed mental blocks in Jean's mind as a girl to protect her psychic mind from experiencing trauma; these are destroyed by Jean's enhanced power, and the trauma slowly returns, resulting in her being full of rage and pain. She travels to her childhood hometown after finding out that her father is alive and had abandoned her out of fear of her abilities. Jean recovers her complete memory of the car accident and realizes she had rendered her mother unconscious at the wheel with her telepathy. The belief she is responsible for her mother's death causes her to develop post-traumatic stress disorder. The X-Men arrive and attempt to take Jean home, but she lashes out against Peter Maximoff (Evan Peters) and Raven Darkholme (Jennifer Lawrence), injuring the former and killing the latter, before fleeing.
Jean travels to the mutant refugee island of Genosha to seek assistance from Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) in controlling her rage, but he turns her away after she engages in combat with U.S. military forces tasked with her arrest. Jean meets Vuk (Jessica Chastain), the leader of a shape-shifting alien race known as the D'Bari. She explains to Jean that she has bonded with a cosmic force that wiped out the D'Bari home planet long ago. The power had consumed all those it came across until it was drawn to Jean.
