20th Century Fox has released three new videos and a Dark Phoenix “inspired by” Poster Series in celebration of X-Men Day today – Monday, May 13th – along with footage and exclusive interviews with X-Men past and present. Today, fan celebrations of all things X-Men are happening online and all over the world including the debut of exclusive X-Men content, special events, and unexpected surprises for our most loyal fans. X-Men Day honors the legacy of the X-Men franchise and marks the kick-off of advance ticket sales for celebration of X-Men Day which opens in theaters on June 7th.

This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic Dark Phoenix. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. 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. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.

See Dark Phoenix first exclusively in IMAX theatres nationwide with showtimes beginning at 6pm on June 6th. All fans attending the first 6pm IMAX showtimes will receive a special Dark Phoenix commemorative keychain that celebrates Opening Night.
