20th Century Fox has finally released the first trailer for director Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the next, much delayed X-Men spin-off film focusing on Jean Grey as she assumes the power of the Phoenix Force and becomes a cosmic supervillain.

Starring alongside them are the usual suspects–Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Peters, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tye Sheridan, Nicholas Hoult, and joining them this time, Jessica Chastain, as a shapeshifter who manipulates Jean.

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.
