The first trailer for Josh Boone’s New Mutants just dropped online, it features a twisted version of Pink Floyd’s ‘We don’t need no education’ and has some serious horror vibes.
Set inside a seriously old medical institution we hear from Alice Braga’s Dr. Cecilia Reyes who is actually a mutant herself and is supposed to be a mentor to the group, although it doesn’t feel that way from what we see. The premise being that the five young mutants are just discovering their abilities, so they either dont yet know how to control themselves or really dont know what their capable of. Unlike in the rather coy trailer we’ll get to see their crazy powers explored in a scary context during the movie, much like how Fant4stic tried to instill a body horror theme during the groups transformations.
If your interested in looking it up Boone has stated that the film draws heavily on the Demon Bear saga from the comics, I wont talk about it here as I dont want to get into spoilers.
The movie stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin (Colossus’ sister), Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair who shares akin with Arya Stark to wolfs, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie, Henrey Zaga as Roberto da Costa, Blue Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, and Alice Braga as Cecilia Reyes.
New Mutants hits cinemas April 13th 2018, but for now check out the trailer here:
