“Dark Phoenix” Limps Its Way Onto Home Video

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.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
