The X-Men. Protectors of peace. Jean Grey is one of the most beloved X-Men. But when a mission goes wrong, Jean is exposed to a dark and ancient power. This power has destroyed everything it comes in contact with, until her. Now that this power is becoming unstable, she releases it with destruction and anger. Now that this foreign power is consuming her, and the world is threatened, the X-Men have to face an important truth: they must save either the world, or their friend who threatens it.
Hans Zimmer decided to retire from composing superhero movies after having worked on scores for Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Spider-Man, but Simon Kinberg convinced him to work on this film. See more »
(at around 12 mins) The damaged shuttle is spinning because a thruster is firing. When this is destroyed, it slows down to a halt almost instantly. In the vacuum of space, this would not happen. It would remain spinning fast, while decelerating slowly due to the opposing thrusters firing. Conservation of angular momentum in action. See more »

SPOILER: The X-Films' title sequences features a weapon used by the villain of each film, backed by the X-Men's Cerebro device.
In this film the title appears with flames, without Cerebro. This reflects the Phoenix being neither an enemy or ally. Furthermore, Charles had previously released the Phoenix in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) through a Cerebro door. See more »
Before I express my opinion for this film I would like to clarify some things for all the harsh and mean viewers. Dark Phoenix is about exploring the past of an X-Men character (Jean Grey) and not about the END of X-Men (go watch "Logan" because that's the ending movie)...This film is the beginning of a new Era. And it will be appreciated by less people , because the whole plot focuses on Jean's mentality and the acceptance of her alter ego (Anthropocentrism). By all means it's not a typical X-men movie , and that's the UNIQUE thing about it...You can't judge an origin film like you are expecting to see ENDGAME 2...It's a prequel film about a character embracing her inner powers, not about infinity gauntlets and epic battles.
Now about my opinion over the film ,well no doubt 200 mill budget could do a little better (this doesn't mean the final product wasn't nice) BUT the movie was pretty watchable, had an interesting and simple written plot and divine CGI effects (A classic Superhero movie) . And no ,I don't think the actors where dull and monotonous, they were all acting the same like in all the previous x-men movies . In addition, Jessica Chastain delivered a great and different performance on her role. For an origin film like this one I think it was one of the greatest that Fox/Marvel have ever released.
