Watch | X-Men horror spinoff 'The New Mutants' first trailer

The first trailer of The New Mutants is finally here! Directed by Josh Boone, the X-Men spinoff will open in Philippine cinemas on April 11, 2018.

The story of the “The New Mutants” revolves around a team of mutant heroes comprised of the first graduates from Charles Xavier’s school.  The exciting new movie stars  Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin/Magik (Split), Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane (Game of Thrones), Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie/ Cannonball (Stranger Things), Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Elysium), Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa / Sunspot (13 Reasons Why), and Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar/Mirage (The Originals).

In recent news, Stacey Snider, chairman and CEO of 20th Century Fox shared, “New Mutants” is about these teenagers who are just coming into their powers. It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous.

The only solution is to put them in a “Breakfast Club” detention/“Cuckoo’s Nest” institutional setting. It protects the people on the outside, but it’s strange and combustible inside. The genre is like a haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers. We haven’t seen it as a superhero movie whose genre is more like “The Shining” than “we’re teenagers let’s save the world.”

Additionally, Anya Taylor-Joy reassured fans in recent interviews, “I think the nicest thing about it is that Josh Boone, our director -- he's just such a fan of the comics, and he really loves them so much that he's really interested in just making sure that we do the comics justice for the people that love the characters. You know, we all feel so lucky to be such incredibly loved characters. So, while it's definitely a departure from the X-Men movies, the fans won't be disappointed. We definitely kept all the important bits in there.”
