'New Mutants' Trailer Gives First Look at 'X-Men' Spinoff
It's time to meet the New Mutants.
Fox has shared the first trailer for the X-Men spinoff, which stars Split's Anya Taylor-Joy, Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams and Stranger Things' Charlie Heaton. It's appropriate that the trailer dropped on Friday the 13th, as the studio is taking a horror-thriller approach for the film.
Josh Boone directs the movie, which draws on the 1980s comic books of Chris Claremont, Bob McLeod and Bill Sienkiewicz to tell the story of five teens coping with their mutant powers.
New Mutants opens April 13, 2018 — the first of three X-Men films set for that year, also including Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
