Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique tries her best to get through to Jean who responds by sending her flying with a powerful blast.

Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) are also unable to stop Jean, who is slowly losing her mind and turning into a powerful villain.

"I'm scared. When I lose control, bad things happen to people I love," Jean says.

Dark Phoenix, written and directed by X-Men franchise producer Simon Kinberg, is set to arrive in theaters on June 7. Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) and Jessica Chastain, also star.

Dark Phoenix is based on the classic X-Men comic book series The Dark Phoenix Saga which involved Jean Grey inheriting the power of the Phoenix Force, making her more dangerous than ever before.
