DARK PHOENIX's Rotten Tomatoes Score Has Been Revealed

The first wave of reviews have landed for Dark Phoenix, and while Fox chose to lift the embargo when everyone was sleeping, there's no way they'll be able to hide this score for very long. Check it out...

Dark Phoenix wasn't originally going to be the final X-Men movie, but then the Disney/Fox merger happened and it's been billed as an epic finale ever since. Well, not only did Fox (and Disney, as they've been marketing it in recent weeks) make a huge mistake advertising it as such due to the way critics are dismissing it as a terrible ending for the franchise, but it also sounds like a generally terrible movie. 

Now, Dark Phoenix's Rotten Tomatoes score has been revealed, and, as you might expect, it's not good. Given how important these percentages are to moviegoers, this is inevitably going to hurt box office takings.

With 17%, the Simon Kinberg helmed release is officially the worst-reviewed X-Men movie ever, but it has managed to avoid the single digit score 2015's Fantastic Four reboot received. According to the Critics Consensus, "Dark Phoenix ends an era of the X-Men franchise by taking a second stab at adapting a classic comics arc -- with deeply disappointing results."

Needless to say, it sounds like the filmmaker made a huge mistake going back to the story arc he helped screw up in 2006, and the studio's insistence on retelling the Dark Phoenix saga has backfired in a big way. 

We'll be sure to keep you guys updated as the score continues to change, but it's unlikely to increase much from here seeing as all the biggest sites have now weighed in with their opinions. Are you guys still looking forward to checking out Dark Phoenix, or will you be giving it a miss this weekend?
