Fox has just dropped The New Mutants trailer and frankly it’s quite unlike anything we’ve seen in the superhero genre thus far. Actually, the first look feels a lot like a horror film, which is probably the direction Fox was gunning for in the first place.
Directed by Josh Boone, the film follows a group of teenage mutants such as Magik, Wolfsbane, Moonstar, Sunspot and Cannon Ball, who are mutants in training. But judging by how The New Mutants trailer flows, there are more sinister forces here at work, certainly much more than what the original Marvel Comics series in the 80s delivered.
We can’t really tell for sure what Fox has created with this new film but it looks to be following the path set by Logan and Deadpool, which is to give fans something totally different than what has appeared in the superhero genre thus far.
The New Mutants is set to be released in April 2018 and will star Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams. Blu Hunt, Henry Zaga, Charlie Heaton and Alice Braga.
