There was no hope for this movie to come out. But they did it, congratulations to 20th Century Fox for making it a reality. There were cast changes, new acquisition from Disney, reshoots and every other obstacle possible came in the way. The New Mutants getting a release day seemed impossible a little while ago.
The trailer shows a lot of horrors, I remember an episode from DC’s Titians which had the same story. I can’t say who copied whom, because, this movie was in development since 2015 and production began in 2016 and ended in 2017. It was dated to release in 2018, but Deadpool 2 got in the way, would look stupid if two Marvel movies are seen competing with each other at the box office. In 2019, Dark Phoenix stood in the way. We are in 2020 and there is slight hope, The New Mutants will be in theatres without fail(again).
The storyline of the movie goes like this as mentioned by the moviemakers:
“The New Mutants,” 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.
Mentioning “An original horror-thriller” already convinced me to watch the movie. Josh Boone directed and wrote the screenplay. We’ll see Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie, Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, and Henry Zaga as Sunspot.
The New Mutants will be in theatres on April 2, 2020(fingers crossed).
