It has been a long road to get to The New Mutants and while we aren’t quite their yet, we could very well see the film by the end of the month. In the years since the first trailer was released, the upcoming film has shown off a lot of what it has in store. Most notably The New Mutants trailers have shown off the powers and abilities of Anya Taylor-Joy’s Magik.

In the trailers Anya Taylor-Joy’s Magik can be seen as the one who does a lot of the heavy lifting, fighting the various monsters that appear throughout the film as well as the Deamon Bear. A new promo video for the upcoming film spotlights Magik’s abilities and story. You can see the full video below:

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.

The New Mutants is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on August 28. Stay tuned for all the latest news on The New Mutants and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more exclusive video content!
