After a disappointing performance at the box-office, 20th Century Fox has given X-Men: Dark Phoenix, their final installment in the popular franchise, a home video release date.
The film, which now bears the X-Men name tag, centers around a space rescue mission that serves as the cause for the infamous transformation of Jean Grey (Sophia Turner).
James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jessica Chastain co-star, giving the film a wealth of star power; however, the big names could not muster up much enthusiasm with the franchise faithful. The film marks the lone in the franchise to not cross the $100 million thresholds, though it wouldn’t surprise me if it finds a second life on home video.
X:Men: Dark Phoenix is getting both the 4K and Blu-Ray treatment with each package including a run of deleted scenes, a five-part making-of documentary, and an audio commentary with writer/director Simon Kinberg and producer Hutch Parker.
X:Men: Dark Phoenix, in all its blaze and glory, hits store shelves September 17.
