Director and writer Simon Kinberg’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix runtime has been revealed to us by our trusted inside source.
Our source tells us that the X-Men: Dark Phoenix runtime will be 1 hour 53 minutes and 45 seconds.

Our same source previously revealed that tickets for the film will go on sale on May 13th at 8 am ET. Given the trend to release a new trailer when tickets go on sale, it’s quite possible we might get a new trailer soon.

Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
“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.”
X-Men: Dark Phoenix was written and directed by Simon Kinberg. The movie stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Sophie Turner, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix will hit theaters on June 6th at 7 pm local time.
