Jean Grey senses something sinister is growing inside her. And "it feels good."

Check out the new 30-second commercial for "Dark Phoenix," the upcoming Jean Grey-focused "X-Men" sequel, which will likely be the last official "X-Men" movie from 20th Century Fox as the rights of those characters have been reverted back to Marvel Studios, a result of the recent Disney-FOX merger.

Marking the directorial debut of screenwriter and "X-Men" producer Simon Kinberg, the film will once again tackle "the Dark Phoenix Saga." It was one of the most iconic and beloved X-Men comic book story-lines, in which the X-Men team had to face an evil Jean Grey who, due to exposure to solar radiation, gradually transformed into a powerful super-villain, known as the Dark Phoenix.

"Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner reprises her role as Jean Grey. She is joined by returning cast members Jennifer Lawrence (as Mystique), James McAvoy (as Professor X), Michael Fassbender (as Magneto), Tye Sheridan (as Cyclops), Nicholas Hoult (as Beast), Evan Peters (as Quicksilver), Alexandra Shipp (as Storm), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (as Nightcrawler).

Jessica Chastain joins the cast as the movie's main villain, a mysterious shape-shifting alien who manipulates Jean into embracing her dark side.

"Dark Phoenix," which is one of the last two FOX/Marvel film productions (the other being the long-delayed "New Mutant" movie), is hitting theaters June 7th.

synopsis:
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.
