Dark Phoenix : Official Trailer

Dark Phoenix : Official Trailer

20th Century Fox debuted a second trailer for the long-awaited next (and presumably final) installment its X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix.

Directed by Simon Kinberg, the film reunites James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, and others to adapt the Dark Phoenix storyline from the X-Men comics. The story is one of the best-known from the X-Men comics franchise, in which mutant Jean Grey is exposed to radiation, which boost her powers.

We see a bit of this in the trailer: the X-Men head to space and are hit by a “mysterious cosmic force.” Jean vanishes and reappears on Earth, and we see her speaking with someone (played by Jessica Chastain), who tells her that “if you stop fighting that force inside you, if you embrace it, we will possess the very power of a god.” That spells trouble for the rest of the X-Men, who have to find a way to contain that power and save their friend.

The film is the sequel to 2016’s X-Men: ApocalypseThe Dark Phoenix storyline was originally covered in Brett Ratner’s 2006 film X-Men: Last Stand, but when the franchise’s timeline was reset with 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, Fox had an opportunity to give the story another chance. The studio released its first trailer last fall, showing off the danger that Jean Grey’s powers pose to the world, and the complicity that Professor Xavier (played by McAvoy) has in her formation.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix arrives on June 7th, 2019.

On June 26, Jessica Chastain visited the Today Show, to talk about her upcoming film, ‘Woman Walks Ahead. She also talked about how she spoke up on behalf of Octavia Spencer to help her get five times her pay for an upcoming film: “I assumed a woman like Octavia Spencer would be compensated fairly for the work she’s done, for the awards she’s received.

Jessica was wearing a patterned dress with red sandals and a white bag.

First Trailer of “Woman Walks Ahead” is here!

First Trailer of “Woman Walks Ahead” is here!

The first trailer for Woman Walks Ahead was finally released. Woman Walks Ahead is directed by Susanna White and written by Steven Knight. The film premieres on DIRECTV on May 31, 2018 and in theaters on June 29, 2018.

Chastain stars as Catheine Weldon, a widow who travels from New York to North Dakota for the opportunity to paint the famous Chief Sitting Bull (Michael Greyeyes), just as tensions between the Lakota reservation and the imposing U.S. Army are rising to a boil.

As Catherine and Sitting Bull begin to bond, her presence is perceived as a threat by the army. “They all think that you and me are planning some kind of uprising,” says Chastain in the trailer. Those men – including Col. Silas Groves (Sam Rockwell) – haven’t forgotten Sitting Bull’s victory against Lt. Col. Custer, and the risk of retaliation looms ever larger, even as the friendship between Catherine and the Chief grows.

Jessica Chastain hosts the Saturday Night Live

Jessica Chastain hosts the Saturday Night Live

On January 20, Jessica Chastain hosted for the first time the Saturday Night Live

On her monologue, Jessica sang an energetically anthemic version of “You Don’t Own Me” after the host called out the millions of women around the country taking to the streets on the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March:

This weekend is the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March and everyone knows women never forget an anniversary.

During the show, Chastain played the on-edge host of a Trump-era game show called What Even Matters Anymore? in which she asked contestants about various actions taken by President Donald Trump and every right answer was “It doesn’t even matter anymore.”

In a spoof on Jeopardy!, Chastain played “Veronica Elders,” the host of a game show “where I tell you what the president did or said and you have to tell me, does it even matter anymore?” she told the three contestants, who had to press a button to be the first to answer each question.

Answers to her first few questions (“The president of the United States refers to African country as poo-poo holes and says all Haitians have AIDS. Does it even matter anymore?”; “”The president has an extramarital affair with a porn star right after his wife gives birth to their son and then he pays her to shut up. Does it even matter to, say, his evangelical base?”) all turned out to be “no.”

Then “Veronica” asked a hypothetical question that hasn’t happened: “The president fires Robert Mueller, the very man investigating him for treason. Does it even matter anymore?” When a contestant pointed out that the premise wasn’t true, the host snapped back, “He will!”

“The president builds a wall but hires illegal immigrants to build it and he accidentally puts an unlocked door every 10 feet. Would that matter?” she asked, looking increasingly wild-eyed. One contestant told her he was “sensing a pattern,” and so answered no.

“You’d think Trump supporters would get mad, but then he blurts out, ‘Chuck Schumer did it’ and Trump supporters believe him. They just believe him!” Chastain said.

In the final round, the host asked contestants to imagine scenarios that would matter. When her answers to premises like Trump punching the pope and canceling the Olympics because flags are “gay” still turned out to be no, the contestants broke the fourth wall and asked Jessica if she was all right. The game ended in a hug.

 

Chastain also appeared on Saturday’s episode as a contestant on a Bachelor-like contest called Car Hunk, where she played a woman who was flustered by the titular hunk’s dates and said that she was the inventor of “eating Tide pods.”

In a spoof of the opening sequence of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, she played a federal agent who tried to help the skit’s version of Will Smith escape a gang he was in trouble with, until she double-crossed him.

And in a skit parodying live-streamed seminars, she played the host of a “Google Talks” segment on bullying with a thick Valley Girl accent.
