The first trailer for Josh Boone and 20th Century Fox’s new X-Men film, The New Mutants, is finally here!
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the film is said to focus on the personal conflicts of the main characters and feature more horror elements than previous X-Men projects, so it’s fitting that the trailer arrived on Friday the 13th.
New Mutants recently wrapped filming and is slated for release next Spring, so we figured that we’d get a trailer sooner rather than later. You can check out the mutant-packed teaser below.
One of the stars of New Mutants, Anna Taylor Joy, recently had a chat with HeyUGuys and assured X-Men fans that they wouldn’t be let down by New Mutants.
“I think the nicest thing about it is that Josh Boone, our director, he’s just such a fan of the comics and he really loves them so much that he’s really interested in just making sure that we do the comics justice for the people that love the characters. You know, we all feel so lucky to be such incredibly loved characters. So, whilst it’s definitely a departure from the X-Men movies, the fans won’t be disapointed. We definitely kept all the important bits in there.”

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.
