As promised, 20th Century Fox has given us our first look at the X-Men spin-off movie, The New Mutants! This definitely stands out from all of the X-Men related films we’ve had in the past and looks like a straight-up horror movie. We shouldn’t be too surprised seeing as director of the film, Josh Boone has been saying it all along, and from the first look at the trailer, it seems like he’s delivered.
The only missing element from the trailer was The Demon Bear. Hopefully, they don’t turn this fan-favorite villain into a spectre. We don’t see the use of The New Mutants powers or them in costumes, which we can already hear fanboys complain about, but it looks as if the trailer is hitting home the horror aspect of the film and they have succeeded. This is the team we’ve been looking forward to seeing for a long time and we love that 20th Century Fox is taking the franchise in a different, yet bold directions. Good on you Fox!
