A new trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been released, further teasing Sophie Turner‘s second performance as Jean Grey.

The two-minute clip, unveiled on Wednesday, focuses heavily on Turner’s character as she struggles to control her power.

“When I lose control, bad things happen. But it feels good,” Grey says in the clip.

Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Charles Xavier), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler, Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Alexandra Shipp (Storm) all feature in the newly unveiled teaser.

Jessica Chastain also appears as an enigmatic shape shifter who becomes interested in Grey and in her power.

Towards the end of the teaser, Grey, whose powers have wreaked destruction around her, faces off with the ever-powerful Magneto, using her power to shatter his iconic helmet.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be released on 5 June in the UK and 7 June in the US.
