It's been months since we got a look at the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix film when the first trailer dropped in September.
Well, the new teaser has been released and it's even better than the first.
Fans have been waiting for two days after 20th Century Fox dropped the poster for the movie and baited us with a rumoured trailer.
The poster shows Jean Grey, played by Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner, front and centre, showing her struggling to contain her powers.
The split down the middle of her body foreshadows that Grey is going to be a force to be reckoned with in this instalment.
But it's not all about Turner's character, Jessica Chastain's role is still being left a mystery, with her silhouette appearing at the bottom of the poster.

There are also some fan theories about what the poster says about Beast. Because he appears on the same side as Magneto (played by Michael Fassbender), people are wondering whether Nicholas Hoult's character swaps sides in the upcoming movie.
The film has been directed by Simon Kinsberg, who knows the franchise well, having helped in the writing of X-Men: The Last Stand.
This time he's running the show and he told The Hollywood Reporter that he's got it exactly to where he wants it.
He said: "[The film] was so clear in my head, emotionally and visually, that it would have killed me to hand this to somebody else to direct,
"I co-wrote X-Men 3, the 'Dark Phoenix' story, which is probably the most sacred of the X-Men storylines in the comics.
"Fanboys and girls did not love the movie [X-Men: The Last Stand]. When I wrote X-Men: Days of Future Past years later - it was a time travel story - I thought, 'Well, here's an opportunity to rewrite this mistake - bring Jean Grey back to life.' I got to go back and essentially erase a $200 million movie."
The film won't be out until June 7, but until then the trailer is more than enough to get you excited.
It's certainly a dramatic turn from the Phoenix character we saw in The Last Stand and Bryan Singer's X2. They saw Phoenix as more of an alter-ego for Jean Grey rather than an unstoppable cosmic force. This film intends to set that right.
Cannot wait for this!
