Brief Synopsis:
Jean Grey begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into the Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all of humanity.

All deleted and extended scenes, plus an alternate ending have been masterfully reintegrated into the movie. adding 5 new scenes and 4 more minutes of footage.
Intention:
I saw Dark Phoenix on Blu-Ray and didn't hate the film as much as a lot of people did, I enjoyed it for the most part. So may as well make a little extended cut putting back some of the smaller deleted moments and the alternate ending with Prof X.

Delivers on the promise of an extended cut of the Dark Phoenix. Makes the narrative more cohesive.
If I ever intend to watch the Fox's X-Men Cinematic Universe narrative in order, I will be watching this version from now on.

*Note*
The only thing I would change is Mystique's really rude "X-Women" line, it's uncalled for since the previous action scene there were also 4 men on that mission risking their lives (Cyclops (stabelizing the rogue shuttle), Quicksilver (performing quick rescues and improvising safety gear), Nightcrawler (teleporting the astronauts to safety) and Beast (piloting the X-Plane). As a team leader, and also being looked to by the younger x-men, it seems quite a calous and mean spirited thing to say.

Virtually all of the criticism this movie gets, while maybe fair (in some cases), boils down to studio interference. This movie may not be the perfect send off of the X-Men franchise, but it's a solid addition to the universe. With no chance of the sinister mouse releasing any thing remotely close a director's cut, there is absolutely no better way to watch Dark Phoenix than Bobson Dugnutt's Cosmic Cut. While the added scenes don't jurastically change the movie, they sure let the film breathe a little.

Wasn't my favorite X-Men movie. However, I found this version somewhat more watchable than the original. Thank you Bobson Dugnutt!

I didn't go and see the film in the cinema, I waited for home release and then I watched the blu ray - I didn't like it but I had the full X-men collection.

Then I waited several months before watching this edit. When I watch a film that's forgettable, I always worry when I watch an edit many months later that I won't spot the additions, in edits where a film has been trimmed I find it advantageous to the editor because I'm less likely to spot their handiwork. But even with this passage of time I was able to recognise where some of the restored scenes were. And Those four minutes actually make something of a difference, after watching the edit I realised how hard I had initially come down on Dark Phoenix. It is a flawed film and not quite the swansong we wanted for the fox-studios mutants. But I feel it is actually a better film than Apocalypse with Charles, Jean and Beast getting their due.

I do recommend this to fans of the previous films, maybe not a newcomer, but perhaps someone like me who thought the theatrical cut was just ho-hum.
