"We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe", director Josh Boone told EW. What's scarier, seeing Arya Stark in danger, screaming for her life, or the familiar sounds of a Pink Floyd classic playing in the background? Like all of this year's X-Men entries, it also seems to have the best possible answer for where it fits in the franchise continuity, which happens to be "Who cares?" The film stars Stranger Things' Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie (Mutant code name: Cannonball) and Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair a.k.a. Wolfsbane.
The trailer of "The New Mutants" released this afternoon and there is only one word to describe it: TERRIFYING. Earlier, Anna Taylor-Joy, who plays Magik in the The New Mutants had mentioned to Hey U Guys that The New Mutants will remain faithful to X-Men film, but will be a different kind of X-Men film. The filmmaker just posted a picture of the film's logo along with the time "12:01 AM PST" in order to get fans excited for his Marvel adaptation.The caption below the picture read, "There's Something New To Fear #tomorrow #newmutants #teaser #xmen #thenewmutants #fridaythe13th". In terms of other main cast members, they'll be joined by Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga), a mentor to the group.
Fox has previously stated that the film's horror esthetics is based on The Demon Bear Saga, which might sound silly but is actually one of the best storylines involving the young heroes. This isn't your typical superhero movie.
New Mutants will release on April 13, 2018.
"Did you know baby rattlesnakes are more risky than adult ones?" the young mutants are told as they discover that they are being kept at the facility due to their unsafe powers.
