Comic book films have become so popular lately. The market is saturated with them, which means they’re having to put new twists on the genre to keep people interested. We have seen this recently with the more serious/drama filled comic book films like Batman v Superman and Logan.
And now that those are already getting old, the studios are moving on to horror films. That’s right. The New Mutants is a legit horror film contained in the X-Men universe.
The director of the film, Josh Boone, revealed earlier this year they were hoping to do something very different…
“We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe. There are no costumes. There are no supervillains. We’re trying to do something very, very different.”
This trailer has all the things you’d expect to see in a trailer for a horror film. It’s got scary masks, a creepy asylum and those always terrifying jump scares.
Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Anya Taylor-Joy and Henry Zaga star in the movie, which is set to be released April 13, 2018. Check out the trailer below…
