so a few months ago,
i was obsessed with anything dark phoenix from x-men.
even tho she is the “bad” side,
i was feeling a connection to jean grey within my spirit.
i even had an image i found on google as my phone wallpaper.
it was a real situation.
well i saw the trailer for the upcoming “dark phoenix” movie…
…and i’m not blown away.
why jennifer lawrence there again?
doesn’t mystique have something else to do?
even tho i love jessica chastain,
and looking forward to her role,
i won’t even get into all the mis-castings with the rest.
i don’t even like who they chose to play dark phoenix,
so there’s that.
this is the plot:
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.
… and it sounds decent,
but the trailer didn’t make me want to put this on my calendar.
i’m very “eh” with it.
hopefully they’ll make it interesting by valentine’s day.
