GoT star Sophie Turner rises as evil phoenix in explosive film trailer
SOPHIE TURNER struggles to control her telekinetic powers in the latest Dark Phoenix trailer.
The Game of Thrones star plays the title role of Jean Grey in the latest movie of the Marvel series, which features James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto and Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique.
The trailer shows Sophie’s character transforming into the all-powerful Phoenix, while the X-Men — including Storm, Cyclops and Beast — attempt to contain her.
Based on a comic book storyline from the 1980s, the new X-Men movie sees the 23-year-old British actress reprise her role from 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse. Simon Kinberg is on directing duty for the latest instalment of the superhero film franchise, which launched in 2000.
X-Men: The Last Stand already tackled the Dark Phoenix storyline in 2006, but was widely criticised by fans for only featuring it as a sub-plot.
Dark Phoenix is set to be released in June.
