Plot summary

What is Dark Phoenix movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Dark Phoenix" movie plot summary.

In 1975, eight-year-old Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) accidentally causes a car crash that seemingly kills both her parents, leaving her an orphan. Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) takes her to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, where he promises to teach Grey to use her gifts for good.
In 1992, during the first mission of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, the shuttle is critically damaged by solar flare-like energy. The president calls upon the X-Men to save the astronauts, and in the process Jean is struck by the energy. Miraculously, she survives the blast and absorbs the rays, saving her team's aircraft. Raven Darkhölme (Jennifer Lawrence) scolds Xavier and claims he puts the team in unnecessary danger. Jean's psychic powers become greatly amplified, but her emotional state begins to deteriorate. As she becomes increasingly stressed, Jean's powers become harder to control and she accidentally unleashes her power on mutants celebrating at Xavier's school. Xavier reveals he placed mental blocks in Jean's mind as a child to suppress her memory of causing the car crash and keep away any corresponding mental trauma, but that Jean's enhanced power has destroyed the blocks. Meanwhile, Jean travels to her hometown after seeing visions of her father.
Jean finds her father alive; he had survived the car crash and forsaken her. She recovers complete memory of the accident and realizes that, unable to control her powers at the time, she had accidentally rendered her mother unconscious at the wheel with telepathy, causing the crash and killing her. The X-Men arrive and, after a brief skirmish in which Peter Maximoff (Evan Peters) is injured, Xavier mentally freezes everyone to allow Raven time to persuade Jean to come home. Unable to control her emotions, Jean lashes out and accidentally kills Raven before fleeing to the island of Genosha, a mutant refuge run by Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender). Jean asks for help in controlling her rage, and he initially agrees. U.S. military helicopters land on the island demanding Jean's surrender. Jean attacks them, but Erik stops her and angrily banishes her, refusing to help.
