The official trailer for Josh Boone’s New Mutants movie has just been released. The trailer, which is just over two minutes gives us a glimpse of the cast of characters locked down in an asylum. Unlike other X-Men titles, the trailer shows proves the backdrop of this story is set purely in the horror realm. In a recent interview with Variety, FOX CEO Stacey Snider praised Boone’s different take on a superhero film by saying: “We haven’t seen a superhero movie whose genre is more like “The Shining” than “we’re teenagers let’s save the world.”
The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy as the Russian sorceress Illyana Rasputin, Maisie Williams as the werewolf Rahne Sinclair, Charlie Heaton as the flying Sam “Cannonball” Guthrie, Henry Zaga as the mutant who can manipulate solar energy Roberto “Sunspot” da Costa, Blu Hunt as the illusionist Danielle “Mirage” Moonstar, and Alice Braga as the groups mentor Dr. Cecilia Reyes.
Created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, the New Mutants first appeared in 1982’s Marvel Graphic Novel #4 which was published by Marvel Comics. One would expect Marvel to debut a new series to coincide with the films release.
The New Mutants is set to debut on April 13, 2018. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for more updates on this title.
