On Saturday, we brought you the first trailer for X-Men: The New Mutants, a superhero trilogy in the works at 20th Century Fox based on a popular comic book property from Marvel. It was fantastic, with way more of a horror movie vibe that stale superhero tropes; the film takes place in an insane asylum and one scene even echoes A Nightmare on Elm Street. If you missed it, have a look-see below.
Official Synopsis: 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.
X-Men: The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Charlie Heaton. Look for it in US Theaters beginning April 13th, 2018.
So, who exactly are these “New Mutants”? With no costumes or stereotypical abilities on display, horror fans unfamiliar with the source material (like me) may not know exactly what to make of it all. I mean, I like what I see, but I’m confused. What makes these kids different from the rest of The X-Men?
