Will New Mutants open doors for the new genre of superhero movies?
20th Century Fox has earlier hit the gold dust with the X-Men franchise. In recent times, they have been fortunate in churning successful film out one after another, based on Marvel comics be it Deadpool, The Wolverine or X-men Apocalypse. The formula for each film had been simple, to deliver what audience is expecting along with little freshness.
However, now Fox is changing that & the most recent example is the trailer of New Mutants movie that will hit the theaters around April 2018. It is not another comic book movie in which bunch of guys & girls with superpowers will fight some asshole dude. Fox is taking this one into entirely different dimension by making it a Horror – Thriller. The trailer gives us the glimpse of utterly horrifying and dark world of New Mutants.
The story takes place in a secret facility where experiments are being conducted on young mutants, only now they are coming to know about their abilities. It admittedly looks refreshing, and you get all invested in the trailer. The background music adds punch and horror element to it. The trailer makes you feel restless and claustrophobic with each scene.
New Mutants Director & Cast
The movie is directed by the Josh Boone (director- Fault in our stars ) who co-wrote the script with Knate Lee (Kidnap). The cast is no less than the stellar one as it includes actors like Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) as Magik, Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) as Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Mirage, and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.
It will be interesting to see if Fox succeeds in pulling this off as for now it has captured my attention. Do let us know your views on this horror flick, based on mutants and till then keep reading vostory.
