'New Mutants,' new trailer

It’s been quite a long road for writer and director Josh Boone’s Marvel Comics adaptation, The New Mutants. Originally slated to hit the big screen in 2018, the film has seen substantial delays, most recently tied to the covid-19 pandemic. Now, though, it seems that a release is finally on the horizon as 20th Century Studios today releases a new trailer for The New Mutants in advance of a special online Comic-Con International panel that will be held next week. Writer and director Josh Boone will join stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt and Henry Zaga on Thursday, July 23.

The New Mutants offers an original horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.

Boone directs from a screenplay he wrote with Knate Lee, adapting Chris Claremont’s original comic book storyline. The film version sets Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair (aka Wolfsbane), Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin (aka Magik), Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie (aka Cannonball), Blu Hunt as Dani Moonstar (aka Mirage), Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa (aka Sunspot), and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

The New Mutants is produced by Simon Kinberg, p.g.a., Karen Rosenfelt, p.g.a. and Lauren Shuler Donner with Stan Lee and Michele Imperato Stabile serving as executive producers.

Although The New Mutants is currently scheduled for a theatrical release on August 28, that release date is conspicuously absent from today’s trailer. Check back for further details as they become available.
