The New Mutants was confirmed with a trailer a few days ago.However the X- Men spinoff has an interesting new take on the comic books
Now imagine X-Men but in a horror movie and that’s what this spin-off is all about. Set in the X-Men universe it’ll be fun to see how a horror movie pans out. Since Josh Boone stated earlier that the movie isn’t about a group of heroes trying to save the world from the big bad but instead they’re trying to save themselves.
Here’s the official statement, via EW
“We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe. There are no costumes. There are no supervillains. We’re trying to do something very, very different.”
The movie is set in a hospital which looks more like a rehab center for kids who seem special but it seems things aren’t the way they look, I’m going to take one from the trailer “This isn’t a hospital. It’s a haunted house!”. It seems from the trailer that the teens are somehow entangled in each other’s abitities and need to somehow come to accept their powers and their past sins.
The New Mutants stars Maise William from Game of Throneswho will portray Wolfsbane, Anna Taylor Joy from Split who will be portraying Magik, Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why) was cast for the role of Sunspot and Alice Braga from Elysium whose role hasn’t been revealed as of yet.
As of Josh Boone the director is well attuned in teenage set movies as his last movie was the teenage hit drama The Fault in Our Stars. What will be interesting to see is how the horror movie take on a superhero franchise pans out. Check out the trailer and share your opinions by commenting in the comments section below.
