‘Dark Phoenix’ Has Worst Opening in X-Men History

MoviesReview Dark Phoenix The X-Men saga comes to an exhausted conclusion. Kurt Loder

With Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner starring as the titular character alongside Jessica Chastain, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy, it seemed Dark Phoenix would draw in huge numbers.

After Salman Khan's "Bharat", now Sophie Turner's ' X-Men: "Dark Phoenix" got leaked online on the piracy website Tamil Rockers.

As per MCU Cosmic, Olivia Munn's Psylocke was supposed to return for the film, and she would have been the other telepath working with Magneto.

Which character is the easiest for him to write and which one is the hardest? "Dark Phoenix" is the firm conclusion of the main series of movies.

This is the way the X-Men franchise ends: Not with a bang, but a whimper.

. Disney CEO Robert Iger has said they plan to continue doing R-rated "Deadpool" movies, but whether those films would be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or more standalone things like the first two movies is unknown.

Margot Robbie 'hates' being called this one word
Robbie jumped in to defend her role as Tate, saying, "I think the moments I was on screen gave a moment to honor Sharon". I have to say that I'm warming to Harley Quinn's new look, one that at first looked thrown-together and cheap to me.

Why he wanted to create Genosha in the film.

How many deleted scenes will be on the Blu-ray?

Set in 1992, the film follows Jean Grey (Turner), a powerful mutant who is exposed to a mysterious energy in space that greatly enhances her powers, but also brings out a darker side to her. Though it was sold to us as The Last Stand done right, the movie has somehow earned even worse reviews than the 2006 effort and sunk rather than soared at the box office, earning the lowest-grossing opening weekend for an X-Men film ever.

When we had a chance to speak with Kinberg himself earlier this week to talk about the how Dark Phoenix evolved during the production process, he was candid about the parallels between his original ending and those of other Marvel movies, but pointed out that the reshoots took place long before the public had a chance to see Captain Marvel. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet.

To be fair to the albeit bad "Dark Phoenix", the X-Men franchise has followed a downward trend at the box office, with the "Deadpool" films standing as obvious outliers - the first making $132 million in its opening weekend in the US.
