All X-Men Movies Ranked Best to Worst, By Rotten Tomatoes Rating

The first X-Men movie, from way back in the summer of 2000, ran just 104 minutes, eschewed Batman & Robin-style outlandishness, and was forced to employ a mid-range budget judiciously.

Presumably in response to messages from fans about the unfortunate flopping of the film, Donner wrote: "Save your condolences". That's clearly not something that Simon Kinberg, the director and writer of Dark Phoenix, understood.

Fan backlash started with X-Men: Apocalypse, which garnered mixed reviews from both critics and fans.

It is the 12th X-Men film.

According to Friday's grosses, this weekend's two biggest releases - "The Secret Life of Pets 2" and "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" - are debuting well short of expectations, but it's "Dark Phoenix" that's flaming out the worst.

However, Kroger's recall notice on the FDA website says all of the company's grocery chains received the recalled frozen berries. The system alerts customers who may have purchased recalled products through "register receipt tape messages" and phone calls.


"Logan" is the proper finale to the "X-Men" film series. At the very least, a spinoff called The New Mutants is due out next year, after many delays and possible reshoots. It was then pushed back to February 22, 2019, before being postponed again to August 2, 2019. Did it live up to your expectations? Let us know in the comment section below. Dark Phoenix is also believed to be the final part of the X-Men series. 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.

"Dark Phoenix sees the X-Men thrown into something of their very own Civil War, with a greying over of who the heroes and villains really are". We also just felt that Mystique is so central to so many different stories emotionally. This time more attention is paid to the story arcs of Raven Darkhölme/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto (Michael Fassbender), whose love/hate friendship with Professor X can be the high point of an "X-Men" movie when done right.

How did they come up with the way Sophie Turner was going to look at Dark Phoenix?

But like numerous "X-Men" movies before it, the saving grace for "Dark Phoenix" is its global box office. Disney's Aladdin is roaring in theatres although 20 Century Fox doesn't seem to keep calm. It re-adapts the famous comics storyline wherein powerful telepath Jean Grey (here played by Sophie Turner) fuses with an alien entity that amps up her powers, previously seen in 2006's mostly awful X-Men: The Last Stand.

And as the X-Men walked away victorious from their encounter, the Dark Phoenix emerged - a version of the Phoenix that had divested itself from Jean's human emotions and loving ties.
