After two years of delays, 20th Century Fox released the trailer for the X-Men spinoff “The New Mutants.”
Inspired by “The New Mutants” Marvel graphic novel published in 1982, director Josh Boone’s spinoff brings some horror into the X-Men universe. It opens on Blu Hunt’s (“The Originals”) Danielle Moonstar sitting in darkness when a voice asks her, “What’s the last thing you remember, Dani?” Faces emerge from the darkness, there’s a scream, and Dani replies, “You said we had to run.”
Then the action begins.
The movie follows five young mutants, just as they’re discovering their powers, held against their will in a secret facility as they fight to escape. It stars Anya Taylor-Joy (“Split”) as the Russian mutant Illyana Rasputin/Magik, Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”) as Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane, Charlie Heaton (“Stranger Things”) as Sam Guthrie/Cannonball and Henry Zaga (“Looking for Alaska”) as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot.
