“Do you know what mutants are?” 20th Century Fox has released a first-look at the upcoming film, The New Mutants and with the dark hollow hospital setting and creepy figures protruding from the walls, the Josh Boone-directed X-Men spinoff takes a more horror genre approach than the usual superhero actioner one.
“This is not a hospital. It’s a haunted house,” a patient exhorts in the trailer, aptly dropped on Friday the 13th. Written by Boone and Knate Lee, the film will center on an angst-driven adventures of a diverse group of teens that include Native American Danielle Moonstar, Scots girl Wolfsbane, a Kentuckian code-named Cannonball, Russian teen Magik, as well as an alien named Warlock.
Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, and Alice Braga star in the pic, which bows in theaters April 13, 2018.
Producers are Simon Kinberg, Karen Rosenfelt, Lauren Shuler Donner.
