Film-maker Simon Kinberg has his directorial debut with this latest instalment of the 'X-Men' franchise based on the Marvel Comics characters. When a NASA space mission fails, leaving its team of astronauts stuck in their shuttle in free orbit, the X-Men are recruited to venture into outer space to save them. However, their rescue goes wrong and Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) is caught in a horrific explosion. Against all odds, she survives, but as a result of the explosion she is mutated even further and her powers become extraordinary. The X-Men begin to fear her capability to carry out serious destruction, and when Jean, the Dark Phoenix, begins to sense their mistrust she goes rogue and puts many lives at risk. Will they ever be able to resurrect the real Jean or will they have to destroy the corrupted Dark Phoenix?
