New Mutants is the upcoming X Men franchise – a spin-off, apparently. The series has grabbed fan interest because of several reasons, chief among them being that the movie will have horror elements. Later on, the rumors became more concrete and the buzz is that the movie is an out and out horror movie. The trailer that launched in 2019 confirmed that director Josh Boone has gone the horror way.
Have a look at the New Mutants trailer:
A brand new trailer for the Marvel movie will be out sometime in January. The New Mutants is essentially a reboot of the X-Men movies, with five adolescents finding out their superhuman/mutant powers as they grow. The movie seems to wipe away the X-Men movies, which haven’t found a chord with the critics or even the audiences. That’s sad because the X-Men franchise is one of the oldest Marvel franchises. The end of the franchise came with the underwhelming Dark Phoenix. The first X-Men released in 2000, and the watershed moment of superhero-themed movies, Spiderman, released in 2002.
The New Mutants stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt and Alice Braga. Josh Boone directs a screenplay that’s he’s written along with Knate Lee. The original creators are Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod.
The New Mutants hits theaters on April 3 2020.
