The first New Mutants trailer was released over a year ago but now we have a new look at the mutant superhero film courtesy of Disney. Following the buyout of 20th Century Fox by the house of mouse, several films were put on the back burner including this teen superhero flick.
After reshoots and tweaks, new owners Disney are evidently happy enough to finally release the film, which was initially due for release in 2018. The New Mutants is directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) and based on the X-Men comic book, which focused on a group of teenage mutants.
The new film retains its horror thriller setting, telling the story of a group of young mutants who are being held in a hospital for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.
The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, Charlie Heaton as Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Mirage, and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes. The film arrives in cinemas in April 2020.
