X-Men Spin-Off The New Mutants Drops Horror-Filled First Trailer
I never knew Pink Floyd could be so terribly creepy. The rock anthem turned into a horror-filled theme is definitely going to give me nightmares. But it’s not just the song that has me freaked out. The new trailer for Fox’s X-Men spin-off The New Mutants is filled to the brim with horror. If the movie is anything as frightening as this trailer it will be a runaway hit.
The trailer opens up with the camera slowly panning forward in an empty hallway. It then quickly transitions into a graveyard. While all of this is happening we get Alice Braga’s Dr. Cecilia Reyes’ voice-over asking a young girl a series of seemingly harmless questions. But the way the questions are delivered combined with Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick In The Wall” sent shivers down my spine.
The premise of the trailer looks really interesting. You take Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters and turn it upside down. You take this place of hope, love, and family and turn it around into a place of fear, terror, and utter madness.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.
The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy as Ilyana Rasputin/Majik, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie/Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar/Mirage, Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, and Happy Anderson as Reverend Craig. The film is directed by Josh Boone. You can catch it in theaters on April 13, 2018.
