Sophie Turner’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix Poster Is An Artistic Interpretation Made For The Wrong Time Period

Still keen though.

Dark Phoenix is the final movie in the X-Men franchise, and with Game of Throne’s Sophie Turner taking on the starring role it looks appropriately awesome.

It’s very clear that Sophie Turner’s talent extends far beyond what we’ve seen from her as Lady Sansa Stark. In this X-Men film, she plays Jean Grey as she transforms into the iconic Dark Phoenix the X-Men family and entire planet that she once loved.

Basically, she gets to be the Bad Guy, and the power suits her…Just saying #Sansa4Queen.

According to the X-Men timeline, the film is set in the 90s. Which is why this final release poster for Dark Phoenix doesn’t seem quite right.

Although it looks great, and Sophie Turner is slaying as the centrepiece, the poster is a distinctly 80s aesthetic. It throws back to that era of painted movie posters that were emblematic of films like E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, The Goonies and Back to the Future.

But for a film set in the 90s it just doesn’t make sense.

It’s also an odd choice considering the 80s painted poster angle has been recently revived by one of the biggest shows around: Stranger Things. 

Considering the high-profile popularity of Stranger Things and the fact that the poster aesthetic actually matches the period setting of the show, it seems an odd direction for X-Men to take. I have faith that Dark Phoenix will be an epic movie, but the target audience is attentive to the point of being picky, so it can’t afford too many choices that are interpreted as missteps.

Lucky for them the poster still looks great, and having Sophie Turner’s face on it makes it pretty impossible to dislike.

Dark Phoenix is set to be released on June 6 in Australia.

Sophie Turner Shutting Down Nick Jonas’ Attempt At A Game Of Thrones Inside Joke Is Ruthless

He doesn't even go here!

Between chugging wine on a stadium screen and sharing the most accurate reaction videos to the adventures of Arya Stark in Game of Thrones’ final season, Sophie Turner has a reputation for being the sassiest boss of both the GoT and Jonas Brother family.

So of course, when Nick Jonas made a cheeky Game of Thrones joke about his Met Gala look, Sophie came through with the signature sass.

Nick was looking dapper on the pink carpet alongside Priyanka Chopra, but fans commented on the resemblance to GoT baddie Little Finger. Spot on to be honest.

Responding to Nick’s caption, “Sansa… We must protect the vale.” Sophie Turner replied with a harsh reminder that she killed off his manipulative ass in season seven. Get wrecked.

Nick Jonas Game of Thrones cosplay has nothing on Joe Jonas’ full Sansa Stark get up last Halloween.

But at the end of the day, all is fair in love and siblings-in-law.

Sophie Turner Said What We Are All Thinking About Arya Stark After Game Of Thrones' Battle Of Winterfell

Proud sister.

There are not many things so wholesome as the tight friendship between Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. The Stark sisters might not always get along on-screen but there off-screen counterparts are nothing but cheerleaders for each other.

* Spoilers ahead from Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3 *

In the much-anticipated Battle of Winterfell, Arya Stark was the great hero we knew she always could be. She literally saved everyone from joining the army of the undead so thank you very much to the power of young, capable women, who also happen to be trained in the art of assassination.


Arya’s defeat of the Night King had fans bowing down to her in full celebration mode, including, of course, Sophie Turner.

Turner posted a video to her Instagram Story to add her own commentary about Arya’s heroism in the 11th hour and no doubt her general grit throughout the episode.

“Arya really is that bitch. YES. YOU. ARE. BITCHHHHHAAAAAA!” she says in the post, tagging Maisie Williams.

The finger snaps really top it all off. This is the universal reaction to Arya Stark after Game of Thrones’ Battle of Winterfell. She really is THAT bitch, and now there’s only a few people on her list left to deal with. If we didn’t believe Arya was capable of killing Cersei before, I think we all believe it now.
