A horror X-Men movie? First chilling trailer for New Mutants
Logan is western, Deadpool is comedy and now New Mutants is terror?
This is what they seem to want to convey to Fox with the new trailer for their latest adaptation of another comic from the mutant universe, New Mutants. The film is directed by Josh Boone, the same person responsible for Stuck in Love and The Fault in Our Stars, who is not usually a horror filmmaker. However, it is just his third job and we grant him that.
The film tells the story of a group of mutants trapped in a secret facility where they struggle to survive. Recall that in the comics The New Mutants was a new generation of X-Men recruited by Professor X to fight a Donald Pierce Hellfire Club, a character we saw in Logan (2017) played by Boyd Holbrook. However, in this film it seems that they will base the script on the Demon Bear Saga, by which the villain will be a mystical Demon Bear that absorbs the power and outside of the negative emotions of its victims, How does this sound to them? Can it work?
The mutants will be played by Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, 2016), Maisie Williams (Arya in Game of Thrones), Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things), Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, and Alice Braga. New Mutants premieres on April 13, 2018.
