The Blu-Ray, 4K Ultra HD and DVD release date for Josh Boone’s The New Mutants has been revealed.
The final film from the Fox era of the X-Men is finally getting a home release later this year after it debuted in theaters a short while ago. Josh Boone’s The New Mutants had an infamous journey to the screen, as it was delayed over two years from its initial intended release. When the film was finally seen by the public, it was met with a disappointing critical and commercial reaction – however a small number of X-Men fans liked what it did with some of the characters and the horrific visuals.
It’s likely that the disappointing box office numbers for the film were related to the ongoing pandemic, with many audiences choosing to stay at home rather than risking a theater visit for The New Mutants. However IGN recently confirmed that the Josh Boone film will arrive on Blu-Ray, 4K Ultra HD and DVD on November 17 this year – meaning that fans who missed out on seeing it in theaters don’t have long to wait for the film.

Here is the official synopsis for The New Mutants:
In this terrifying, action-fueled film based on the MARVEL comic series, five young people who demonstrate special powers are brought to a secret institution to undergo treatments they are told will cure them of the dangers of their powers. Included are Danielle Moonstar aka Mirage (Blu Hunt), who creates illusions from other people’s fears; Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), who transforms into the werewolf Wolfsbane; Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton), who, as Cannonball, can fly at jet speeds protected by a force field; Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot (Henry Zaga), who absorbs and channels solar power; and Illyana Rasputin aka Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy). The younger sister of Colossus, Magik becomes encased in armor at will and wields a soulsword that amplifies her multiple superhuman and psychic abilities.
Invited by Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga) to share their stories about when their powers first manifested, the five “patients” come to understand that they are in a class of people called mutants, who have historically been marginalized and feared. As they relive their origin stories, their memories seem to turn into terrifying realities. Soon, they question what is real and what isn’t, and it becomes clear that the institution isn’t what it seems. Now the question is — why are they being held captive? And who is trying to destroy them? The tension and horror mount in this white-knuckle thrill ride directed by Josh Boone and co-written by Boone and Knate Lee.
Directed by Josh Boone from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee, The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt, and Henry Zaga.
