The X-Men movie universe is about to expand with The New Mutants and we're about to get our first good look at the spin-off tomorrow.
The New Mutants is scheduled for release on April 13th, 2018.
That's clear from the date the studio chose to release the first trailer for the movie - Friday the 13th - as well as its tone and lack of classic superhero trappings. "We're trying to do something very, very different", Josh told EW. In order to hype to upcoming X-Men project, Fox has debuted the first teaser trailer for the film. Taylor-Joy promised. "We definitely kept all the important bits in there". Boone has teased that New Mutants is a horror film, and Fox studio exec Stacey Snider compared the X-Men spinoff to "a haunted house movie."
Like many a good horror movie, the film takes place with limited locations, in this case it's a secret facility where the five fledgling mutants are being held against their will. The gang will discover their powers whilst imprisoned, but they will be forced to use their mutations to save themselves from the location. Magik, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Sunspot, Mirage, and Cecilia Reyes will all feature in the film. The team will be challenged by the terrifying threat of the Demon Bear, the creature that has stalked Danielle's family for years.
New Mutants now has a 3.55 out of 5 ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating, making it the seventeenth most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com readers. Watch the teaser below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
