X-Men: Dark Phoenix is already available on digital and releases in just a few days on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD, and to celebrate the occasion we have a lengthy exclusive featurette clip to share! The video features writer-director Simon Kinberg talking about his approach to the cast and their characters, and giving them a chance to do something different than in the prior three movies.

The featurette also delves into the shortcomings of X-Men founder and leader Professor Charles Xavier, whose ego conflicts with his need to help everyone, with interviews from James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, and producer Hutch Parker.

Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence return to lead the all-star cast of X-Men: Dark Phoenix which opened in theaters worldwide this summer. During a rescue mission in space, Jean Grey (Turner) is transformed into the infinitely powerful and dangerous DARK PHOENIX. As Jean spirals out of control, the X-Men must unite to face their most devastating enemy yet - one of their own - all while dealing with their first full-on cosmic foes.

The home entertainment release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix comes packed with hours of extensive special features and behind-the-scenes insights from Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker delving into everything it took to bring the followup to First Class, Days of Future Past, and Apocalypse to the big screen. Beast also offers a hilarious, but important, one-on-one “How to Fly Your Jet to Space” lesson in the Special Features section.
