First 'New Mutants' Trailer Mashes X-Men With Horror Movies

Josh Boone, who directs the new film and penned the screenplay, also directed classic teen weepie The Fault in Our Stars. I'm hoping this works out. But that's The New Mutants for you. The cast and crew of New Mutants wrapped filming in early September, after beginning production in July in Boston, Massachusetts, so the movie has had a rather quick production schedule.

Dr. Cecilia Reyes, played by Alice Braga in a role that was originally going to go to Rosario Dawson, is the one in charge of the whole operation and is responsible for the teenager's trauma. The movie is the spin-off from the X-Men franchise. Here's the quick summary: "Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves".

Based on the eponymous '80s comic, the film finds a number of young mutants (including Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams) who appear to be trapped in a mysterious hospital.

The upcoming flick will put a horror spin on the X-Men franchise. "Although I will say there's stuff you'll never see in the trailers that are big parts of the movie".

"...a darker and more surreal and impressionistic X-Men series than we'd ever seen before".

The New Mutants is the latest X-Men movie and will be the first to hit theaters since Logan in March 2017; this saw Hugh Jackman reprise his role as Wolverine, one last time.
