The New Mutants from director Josh Boone is a comic book horror film that sees a new team of mutants discovering their powers in frightful ways.
The film follows a group of young mutants held in an isolated psychiatric hospital while their powers are being discovered and monitored.
When they realize things aren’t all they appear to be in the hospital, they’ll have to use their powers to fight for a way out.
The film is based on the Marvel comic book horror series of the same name and is set within the X-Men universe.
It was originally scheduled to release a while back but earned a long delay after the powers that be decided it wasn’t up to scratch.
It’s now received an official release date of 9 April 2020 and apparently, we’ll be receiving the original cut of the film.
Judging by this new trailer, The New Mutants does feel like an X-Men movie with a horror twist.
It’s still hard to say whether it’s going for a horror-first, comic book movie-second vibe though, which could be the film’s undoing if the filmmakers couldn’t decide what they want it to be.
It stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt, and Henry Zaga.
