New Mutants Video Still Insistent On August 28 Release Date
Soon, the curtain may finally rise on the long-delayed X-Men film.
Marvel's upcoming horror-superhero film New Mutants has released a new 60-second featurette. The clip features the cast, which includes Alice Braga Morales (The Suicide Squad), Blu Hunt (The Originals), Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), and others joyfully distilling down the complicated plot in under a minute. Check it out below.
After a lengthy series of well-documented delays over the last two years, New Mutants will be in theaters August 28. Even though that date isn't all that far away, the repeated doubling down on late August in the face of COVID complicating theater re-openings may instill more uncertainty than confidence. It doesn't help that last week's reminder the movie will be hitting IMAX theaters was in a tweet that assured fans with a hard to parse "yeah, really."
Fans and skeptics alike could be forgiven for not feeling certain about New Mutants arriving in theaters. Long before COVID, the movie was originally scheduled to be released in theaters April 13, 2018.
The official movie synopsis says that New Mutants is "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."
New Mutants is directed by Josh Boone (Stuck in Love, The Fault in Our Stars). The screenplay was written by Booen and Knate Lee (Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa).
