To say that 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off “The New Mutants” had hit some roadblocks may be one of the biggest understatements we have ever heard. Years after back-to-back issues plagued the film, it looks like it may finally see the light of day (and we’re using the word may very lightly).
On Monday (Jan. 6), the studio behind the long-awaited film (note, it’s still under 20th Century Fox, not Disney) finally unleashed another trailer for the flick. Described as ““an original horror thriller,” the trailer definitely doubles down on that as we watch our protagonists inside of an isolated and nightmarish hospital as they try to figure out what exactly they got themselves into.
If you’re expecting any X-Men/superhero troupes in the trailer, then you’re going to be let down as it feels more like a horror film than a superhero flick.
Watch the two-and-half-minute trailer above.
Directed by Josh Boone, “The New Mutants” stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt, Henry Zaga.
“The New Mutants” will reportedly hit theaters on April 2, but knowing its history, we’re going to remain skeptical about that.
