Disney and Fox’s The New Mutants movie trailer is released.
Over two years after the first trailer was released in October of 2017, we finally have our latest look at director Josh Boone’s horror-centric X-Men spinoff film. While some of the new trailer features footage we’ve seen before, much of it is dedicated to introducing the teenage mutants, as Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Sunspot and Magik give Cliff Notes versions of their origin stories during a group therapy session.
Although this New Mutants trailer features a great deal of new footage from the movie, the tone seems to fall in line with the initial teaser trailer that released two years ago. That said, there’s a greater emphasis placed on the characters’ powers, with glimpses of Magik’s sword, as well as brief shots of Sunspot and Cannonball using their abilities. The trailer even ends with Magik dropping through a portal with her sword to battle facing off against New Mutants villain Demon Bear. Altogether, it’s a well-cut trailer, teasing the Blumhouse-like horror vibes of the X-Men movie, while also showcasing the mutants’ powers.
Directed and co-written by Josh Boone, The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin/Magik, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie/Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar/Mirage and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecelia Reyes. The film arrives in theaters April 3.
