20th Century Fox showed off the first X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer at the CineEurope 2018 event. The footage was exclusively shown to the CineEurope attendees who now have some idea about what to expect from the upcoming film.
The first X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer appears to have been well received by the audiences. Russian outlet KinoMetro offered its first reaction to the trailer. According to Artur Chachelov of KinoMetro, the trailer showed off a lighter tone as compared to previous films in the X-Men franchise.
“The fantastic action thriller Dark Phoenix looks better than expected. At the presentation, this new trailer was shown, getting rid of the excessive gloom of the teaser and clearly positioning the project as a direct continuation of the X-Men.”
Notably, X-Men: Dark Phoenix was originally slated to release in theaters this November. But the filmmakers decided to postpone the film’s release till next February as they wanted to perform reshoots and add some additional scenes. The New Mutants is the second X-Men movie which also got delayed as the film is rumored to undergo a major overhaul. It will now release on August 2, 2019.
Talking more about X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the film is set in 1992 which is almost ten years after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse.
