New Mutants is the 11th entry within the X-Men franchise. It will follow five young mutants who just discover their abilities while they are held in a secret facility against their will as they fight to escape their past sins and save themselves. The film is described to be a mix between Stephen King’s horror and John Hughes’ coming-of-age stories.
New Mutants will open in theaters on April 13, 2018.
8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie
So it’s probably safe to assume everyone here has seen Logan? Well, based on how well it did in the box-office I think 20th Century Fox is taking notes. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I’m sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big screen as soon as possible.
There are so many great X-Men arcs to choose from, but I think focusing on personal stories and fewer characters is a way to ensure the movie connects with an audience. Mutants were originally composed as a metaphor for the Civil Rights movement, and that issue is still very much so alive in our society. I’m not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. Fox focuses on smaller, personal stories that show mutants in a different light. Sure they can kick ass, but let’s make sure they always feel like real people, as Logan did.
