“The New Mutants” Finally Has A Release Date With New Trailer
The Demon Bear is ready to do battle against “The New Mutants”, and it’s been a long time coming. Today a trailer was released for this highly-anticipated movie that has been in developmental hell for what feels like eons. Combined with the Fox/ Disney merger, “The New Mutants” doesn’t seem to fit into the bigger plans for the Marvel franchise. Later this Spring, we will see exactly what we get out of this movie, and whether or not it will be worth the wait.
Here is the official synopsis from Fox: “20th Century Fox in association with Marvel Entertainment presents “The New Mutants,” an original horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.”
The trailer shows us how unique of a film this will be, especially compared to all of the other MCU films and even the Fox films. It’s a unique take on the series, and we will have to see if it’s a success or a bomb, because I have a bad feeling it’s going to be one or the other at the box office.
Directed by Josh Boon, the film stars Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair (Wolfsbane), Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin (Magik), Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie (Cannonball), Alice Braga as Cecilia Reyes, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar (Mirage), and Henry Zaga as Roberto Da Costa (Sunspot).
“The New Mutants” arrives in theaters on April 3, 2020.
