20th Century Fox has released the latest trailer for its upcoming Marvel horror film “The New Mutants,” the latest in the X-Men franchise.
Directed by Josh Boone (best known for his work in “The Fault in Our Stars”) it is definitely nothing like you would expect from a usual X-Men movie and more like an atmospheric horror thriller spin-off. With “The New Mutants” being the 11th installment in the 17-year film series, this new direction is an exciting breath of fresh air.
With Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall Part 2” cover track interspersed in the background, the trailer shows a group teens as they struggle to learn their abilities and identities while held in a spooky secret facility which might have bad intentions of their own.
Based on the Marvel Comics of the same name, the movie stars a group of talented young stars including Anya Taylor-Joy (who was excellent in “Split” earlier this year) as Magik, Charlie Heaton (“Stranger Things”) as Cannonball, Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”) as Wolfsbane, Blu Hunt (“The Originals”) as Mirage and Henry Zaga (“13 Reasons Why”) as Sunspot.
“All of you are dangerous. That’s why you’re here,” says Alice Braga’s (“Elysium”) Dr. Cecilia, our young heroes’ mentor, though her true motives remain unclear.
X-Men: New Mutants is set for release on April 13, 2018.
