As promised by director Josh Boone, the trailer for the upcoming The New Mutants film has been released.
The upcoming film is based on The New Mutants comic that released back in 1982, which follows a group of young mutants as they come to grips with their new abilities. Judging from the trailer, the film will delve into the horror genre as the footage is filled with quite a few jump scares. Fox’s Stacy Snider describing it as “a haunted-house movie”.
The film is set for release in April 2018 and stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Charlie Heaton as Cannonball, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.
It’s great to see Fox delving deeper into to the mutant lore and giving lesser known mutants (when compared to the X-Men) their time to shine.
What do you think, does the trailer get you excited for The New Mutants‘ release or will it be another miss for Fox?
