“Dark Phoenix” stars Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, Nicholas Hoult, and Tye Sheridan on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
These guys are selling this one so damn hard. You have to respect it, we guess, but we always feel bad for stars when they have to grin their way through a flop promo tour.
Goodness, the flaming hoops they make these poor celebs jump through in the hopes of getting you to buy a ticket. They should all just be asked to stand still so we can judge their outfits. That’s the dignified way of doing things, dammit. Anyway, here are our thoughts in random order: Thank God for Nicholas Hoult, who’s the only dude here to recognize that wearing dull business suits is doing no one any favors. Love his look. McAvoy’s button gaps are awful and at the very least, he should have an undershirt on, if not a shirt that fits him better. Jennifer and Sophie are in the midst of a raging fashion battle and we can’t really say who won this round. Jennifer’s dress is really cute, but Sophie’s entire ensemble is pretty eye-catching and fashion-forward. Jessica’s just trying to get through this with her reputation intact. She’s fine with sitting in the back in a basic LBD.
