The New Mutants Trailer Mixes Heroes and Horror
To kick off on the creepy Friday the 13th vibes, 20th Century Fox released the first official trailer at midnight for their upcoming film The New Mutants, inspired by the team of Marvel heroes by the same name- with a terrifying twist.
The movie, as previously reported, is skewing more towards the horror genre than the typical superhero films of past X-Men teams. The New Mutants team boasts young members Wolfsbane (Maisie Williams), Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy), Cannonball (Charlie Heaton), Sunspot (Henry Zaga), and Mirage (Blu Hunt). All are being held against their will in a mysterious and frightening facility, while just beginning to learn the extend of their powers.
The trailer is rightfully creepy and takes these beloved comic characters in a dark direction. With a haunting soundtrack of “Another Brick in the Wall” by Pink Floyd, The New Mutants is already giving us the chills! The film is set to debut in April 2018. It looks amazing and terrifying, and we can’t wait to see The New Mutants in action next year- if they survive, that is!
