In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a film that brought one saga to an end, and another that launched a new trilogy.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix was supposed to right some earlier wrongs – but its ending got retooled in post-production, and it got caught up in Disney’s takeover of Fox too.
The creative control awarded to author E L James meanwhile created challenges on the film of Fifty Shades Of Grey – and it didn’t help that one of its stars quit weeks before filming.
Stories of both are told in this episode.
