20th Century Fox has released a new poster for their upcoming New Mutants horror type movie based in the X-Men Universe. While I never really associated the original New Mutants comic which later went on to become X-Force as a horror type title, this new poster as well as the trailer they released awhile back definitely has a horror type feel to it.
Based on the Marvel superhero team of teenage mutants created by legendary comic book writer Chris Claremont and artist Bob McLeod, the horror-tinged comic book movie features a strong ensemble cast led by "Split" star Anya Taylor-Joy, "Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams, "Stranger Things" actor Charlie Heaton, "Teen Wolf" actor Henry Zaga, and "The Originals" actress Blu Hunt.
The film centers on five misfit teens who are secretly kept in a detention facility after developing superhuman abilities. They must band together to escape their imprisonment while forming a mutant team which consists of five members: Magik, a Russian sorceress (played by Taylor-Joy); Wolfsbane, a Scottish she-wolf (Williams); Cannonball, a propelling-through-the-air Kentuckian (Heaton); Sunspot, a solar-energy-powered Brazilian (Zaga) and Mirage, a Native American illusionist (Hunt).
Directed by "The Fault in Our Stars" helmer Josh Boone, who co-wrote the screenplay with Knate Lee (Kidnap), "The New Mutants" co-stars Alice Braga (TV's Queen of the South, Elysium) as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.
The film will open next Friday the 13th on April 13, 2018.
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.
