After a really…really….REALLY long time, we finally have a new trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Marvel Project ‘The New Mutants’ And I was so surprised by the tone that this film looks like it’s taking.
Synopsis: (Taken from IMDB)
Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.
Now from that rather vague plot outline i was expecting a teen drama. Something with a similar tone to ‘X Men: First Class.’ Where the Mutants are struggling with identity and all that angsty teen stuff. But oh boy is that not what this trailer is about at all. It actually looks more like a mild horror then anything else. And that has the potential to be pretty freaking awesome. It would have a totally different feel from the rest of the Mutant/Xmen movies, helping it to get out from under the shadow of a franchise that died a death a long time ago.
I wasn’t all that hyped up for this one, it wasn’t even one of this years movies that I had really given much thought to. But having seen this now, it’s on my radar in a big way!!
This film will also benefit from having some really great young talent int here. With a group of youngsters this talented, this could well be a great film. Wouldn’t it be great if the Mutant movie, that has been put off continually, actually turns out to be one of the biggest surprises of the year?
