Dark Phoenix | Final Trailer | 20th Century FOX.
In 1975, eight-year-old Jean Grey and her parents get into a car accident that kills her mother. Shortly afterward, Professor Charles Xavier takes her to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. In 1992, nine years after the worldwide chaos caused by En Sabah Nur, the X-Men are seen as heroes by the public. The President summons them for assistance during a crisis and responds to a distress signal from the space shuttle Endeavour, which is critically damaged by a solar flare-like energy during the STS-49 mission. While the X-Men save all of the astronauts, Jean is stranded and is struck by the energy which she absorbs into her body to save the X-Men's aircraft from destruction. Jean survives the event and her psychic powers are greatly amplified as a result, but they become uncontrollable and she accidentally unleashes her power on the mutants celebrating at Xavier's school. It is revealed that Xavier had placed mental walls in Jean's mind as a little girl to protect her psychic mind from experiencing trauma. These mental walls are destroyed by Jean's enhanced power and the trauma slowly returns, resulting in her being full of desire, rage, and pain. She then travels to her childhood hometown after finding out that her father is still alive and learned that he abandoned her. Jean recovers her complete memory of the car accident and remembers that she had inadvertently caused it rendering her mother unconscious at the wheel with her telepathy, which causes her to develop post-traumatic stress disorder. The X-Men arrive and attempt to take Jean home but she injures Quicksilver and accidentally kills Mystique before flying away.
Principal photography began on June 28, 2017, in Montreal, Quebec, under the working title Teen Spirit.
