The latest episode of Honest Trailers roasts Sophie Turner’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
Honest Trailers never hold back when it comes to roasting the biggest movies of the moment, and although X-Men: Dark Phoenix didn’t make a huge splash at the box office, it’s already become notorious as a disappointing ending to the long-running franchise. So when Honest Trailers debuted their latest episode roasting Sophie Turner’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, fans immediately knew they were in for a fun few minutes.
Since Sophie Turner’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix has just been released on home entertainment, the video takes no prisoners when it comes to the worst moments in the film. The creators behind Honest Trailers take shots at the major character death early on, as well as the lack of character development for heroes like Cyclops and Quicksilver. They also roast the director Simon Kinberg since this is his first feature film. The video even addresses the problematic reshoots to make the finale of X-Men: Dark Phoenix less like Captain Marvel. Watch the latest episode of Honest Trailers below!

Here’s the synopsis for Sophie Turner’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix:
This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.
Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.
Dark Phoenix is now available on Digital HD, 4k Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
