The New Mutants

Josh Boone

Writer-director Josh Boone (The Fault in our Stars) joins the Marvel universe with X-Men spin-off The New Mutants, the final X-Men film Fox completed prior to being bought by Disney. Following considerable delays, this spooky, action-packed horror thriller is finally ready for the big screen.

"Sure to deliver thrills and chills to our screens."

Based on the comic books created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, The New Mutants revolves around five young mutants as they fight to escape a secret facility where they're being held against their will. Director Boone (who co-wrote the script with Kate Lee) has said his vision for the film was inspired by horror movies like A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and The Shining, and it looks like The New Mutants will prove to be an inventive horror genre mashup.

The superb young cast of super-powered teens includes Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), Anya Taylor-Joy (Emma), Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things), Blu Hunt (Another Life) and Henry Zaga (Looking For Alaska). Both mutant abilities and friendships will be put to the test as the fledgling team go up against the film’s villain, Demon Bear – a fight which is sure to deliver thrills and chills to our screens.
