After years of being repeatedly delayed, X-Men spinoff ‘The New Mutants’ is finally coming with a new trailer released on Monday.
The trailer reveals some changes that its director, Josh Boone, has made. The movie underwent a series of reshoots and delays since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox.
As described, The New Mutants is “an original horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring.” They will have to figure out what’s happening and fight in order to get out of the secret facility alive.
Compared to previous X-Men films which are focused on traditional superhero flicks, ‘The New Mutants’ gravitates more toward horror.
The movie went through a rough path as Fox planned to develop it back in 2015. The production started in 2016 and the filming initially ended in September 2017. However, things didn’t go as they should.
In January 2018, Fox set the release date to February 2019, allowing Deadpool 2 to roll even without contestation from a different Marvel film at Fox.
Later, it was delayed once again to make sure that another X-men movie, Dark Phoenix, would not have to compete with it.
Throughout the year, a lot changed from casting, scripting rewrites, reshoots, as well as the mentioned Disney acquisition. But after almost five years of waiting to have the movie signed, at last, the long-delayed film is going to be released on April 2.
