If you skipped ‘Dark Phoenix’ in theaters, you don’t have long to wait for its digital or Blu-Ray release. And as has been the case with all ‘X-Men’ movies, it will come loaded with extras, however, uber-fans may be upset as certain extras are limited to certain formats. (It’s just a couple, though.)
The movie, now, once again known as ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ will arrive on digital on September 3, and Blu-Ray and 4K HD on September 17. (There was no mention of a DVD.)

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
Disney has also released a trailer for the home video release:
Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, ‘Dark Phoenix’ starred James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. It opened on June 7, 2019, but came in second place behind ‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’. It was also released as just ‘Dark Phoenix’, after Fox decided to drop “X-Men” from the title back in October. It appears that that label has been restored for home video.
It made $249M worldwide during its brief theatrical run, on a production budget of $200M, making it one of the biggest superhero movie flops ever. But generally speaking, audiences felt it was okay.
Once again, if you want to own it, ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ arrives on digital on September 3, and Blu-Ray and 4K HD on September 17.
