This movie has been in limbo forever. We knew when Disney bought Fox, there would be issues. We are finally getting to see it in April. It still features Game of Thrones, Maise Williams.
The film, based on the X-Men comics of the same name and starring Game of Thrones veteran Maisie Williams, was delayed multiple times amid rumblings about possible script reworks and reshoots. As Disney purchased Fox, the studio bumped the title even further back. This year, at long last, a fresh trailer arrives to confirm The New Mutants will finally see the light of day in theaters — and not on the Disney+ streaming platform as some fans feared.
Here is the latest trailer…..
Director Josh Boone (CBS All Access’s The Stand) previously told EW that he set out with writer Knate Lee to make “a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe.” Fox, in an updated description of the film, pegs it as “an original horror thriller.”
Inspired by Bill Sienkiewicz’s New Mutants comics published in the ’80s — the “Stephen King meets John Hughes” series, as Boone described it — the film sets five mutant teenagers in the confines of a secret psychiatric facility. Placed there against their will for monitoring, they face the sins of their past when strange, seemingly supernatural occurrences emerge. The results look like a haunted house but with comic book heroes.
