Dark Phoenix Director Simon Kingberg recently led his cast of superheroes to China to promote the final entry in the blockbuster X-Men film franchise in China.
Sophie Turner shouted "so excited to be here! Thanks for the warm welcome, guys. "
She stars as Jean Grey, who begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into the Dark Phoenix. "It's not necessarily two separate entities. Um, but it's this girl that's fighting with herself. She's fighting this kind of selfish need to kind of release this phoenix force because it feels so good. And it's such a struggle to keep in, um, but she's also fighting to kind of save her family."
To promote the film, Turner has been around the world and back in a slew of gorgeous outfits, "hollywoodlife.com" reported.
Scottish actor James McAvoy plays Professor Charles Xavier. He described his role this way: "He's always been very hopeful and positive, not entirely changed this time. But I think this time, his message of integration between humankind and mutant kind, has become his passion and his mission, and he has a massive political stage to help spread that message. But I think one of the things that it turns them on and makes him a darker figure this time is that he's more interested in spreading that message. So building his own political image in his own political platform to affect that change, he's not actually living that mantra."
The new X-Men installment will be released in China on June 6, which is one day before the U.S. release.
