Watch: 'The New Mutants' Trailer Shows What an 'X-Men' Horror Movie Looks Like

Oct 13, 2017

We heard The New Mutants was aiming for a horror vibe, but debuting its first trailer in the middle of the night on Friday the 13th pretty much confirms the idea (it also opens on a Friday the 13th). The movie, a spin-off from the X-Men franchise, is based on the 1980s Marvel comic book series of the same name, particularly its darker run written by co-creator Chris Claremont and illustrated by Bill Sienkiewicz. 

Described as "a haunted house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers" and a cross between The Breakfast Club and' One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by 20th Century Fox chairman and CEO Stacey Snider, New Mutants stars a hot young cast as mutant heroes Cannonball, Magik, Wolfsbane, Sunspot and Mirage. They're overseen by a mutant doctor named Cecilia Reyes while locked in a secret facility. 

Watch the first trailer below.
