Entertainment Weekly Unveil the First Look Photos of Sophie Turner in Simon Kinberg’s Directorial Debut X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX
Ahead of its release next November, The Fan Carpet are excited to present the First Look Photos of Simon Kinberg’s Directorial Debut X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly!
Giving X-Men fans the first look at Sophie Turner looking hotter than ever as Jean Grey aka The Phoenix, who unleashed the dormant Phoenix force in the climatic final moments of last year's X-Men: Apocalypse.
In X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX, the X-Men team is dispatched to space for a rescue mission. After a solar flare hits the X-Jet, a surge of energy taps into the power-hungry force within Jean: The Phoenix.
Speaking about her character, Turner said "It's about the butterfly effect of this thing happening," says Turner, who studied schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders to prepare. "What happens when the person you love the most falls into darkness?"
For Turner, stepping into the lead role was a big challenge. In fact, she admits, "I have to go from broken-down Jean to this confident, arrogant, know-it-all character within milliseconds."
Jean is both the hero and villain. But X-Men: Dark Phoenix also introduces an alien shape-shifter, played by Jessica Chastain, who tries to manipulate Phoenix for her own secret agenda, speaking about what intrigued her to get involved she said "I've always wanted to do a big comic-book film, but I had some issues with the female characters I was being offered," she says. "This definitely passes the Bechdel test, and I don't know how many comic-book films can say that."
Jennifer Lawrence returns as Mystique and adds, "It was unrecognisable. Everything was on time. Everything was organised. These movies have always been fun amidst chaos, and now they were fun with no chaos."
"The movie does not work if she's not great," Kinberg says of Turner's performance in the upcoming movie. "Sophie really lived and breathed the movie in a way that was extraordinary."
X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX hits Cinemas on November 2 next year and features the ensemble cast of Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Storm and Olivia Munn as Psylocke.
