Today 20th Century Fox released a new poster for their upcoming X-Men universe film, New Mutants, and it embraces the horror niche that they are going for with the film. It’s very reminiscent of Nightmare Before Elm Street.
One of the things that I have personally always wanted from an X-Men movie was to make it come across as a horror movie. We all know that when mutants come of age, it’s a freaky time. Not only are they dealing with puberty, but then they have all of these mysterious powers and everything usually goes wrong. It’s a perfect set up for a horror movie.
The cast of New Mutants consists of Anya Taylor-Joy as Magick, Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Charlie Heaton as Cannonball, newcomer Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes. The film is directed by Josh Boone.
New Mutants will be arriving in theaters on April 13, 2018. What do you think of the poster? What do you think of the direction that they are going with the horror route? Let us know in the comments below.
