Love It Or Hate It, “The New Mutants” Trailer Is Here

The New Mutants Trailer

20th Century Fox surprised “X”-fans with the new trailer for the b-tier Marvel property “The New Mutants”… and it’s getting some seriously mixed reviews.

“Everyone has demons.”

While the project has been well known to hardline fans of the Fox-held “X-Men” franchise, few were expecting the most recent project “The New Mutants” to hit the internet so soon. Add to that the horror-movie vibe and you have a fractured fan base ranging from angrily confused to anxiously elated.



Amidst the (what I consider to be a quickly fleeting) Marvel renaissance, packed with Fox-held series and films, Netflix series and more MCU movie franchises than one cares to tabulate, it’s no surprise some lesser known properties will get lost in the fray. No doubt, a byproduct of Marvel’s current market saturation. At the same time perhaps “The New Mutants” will go the way of MCU’s sleeper-turned-hit “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and surprise the box-office with big numbers.

One thing however is certain, and that is aside from “Deadpool” and “Logan” Fox has not really made any truly successful films. Or should I say, that Fox has not produced many Marvel films that share acclaim from both critics and fans in recent years. They have, on the other hand, found a darker (and sometimes R-rated) cinematic playground that seems to be creating the right buzz for them. At the moment anyway…

The internet is already ablaze with hardcore fan conjecture, as the trailer is dissected and reassembled to fit the power sets of Cannonball, Wolfsbane, Mirage and company. At the same time, will that conjecture ever come to fruition? Only time will tell.

Check out the Trailer for “The New Mutants” below:

“The New Mutants” is set to blast into theaters April 13, 2018.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.

I was a hardcore New Mutants fan when I was a kid. That was the first series I really collected. I have damn near every issue of the original series before it became X-Force. That said: this is freaking brilliant. That old series was weird and creepy with all these twisted storylines. The Demon Bear Saga. That Shadow King. The Secret Wars II tie-in in which the entire team was brutally murdered. All the stuff with Illiana. Doing this film with a horror movie vibe is spot on, and this is the first X-film I’ve been really excited for in… Read more »
