Friday the thirteenth started off very early as the first teaser trailer for Fox’s X-Men spinoff New Mutants dropped as soon as Friday began. The teenage mutant horror styled film arrives in spring 2018.
Based upon the early run of the comic series from Chris Claremont, Bob McLeod and Bill Sienkiewicz, New Mutants is said to feature five mutant teens that are learning to deal with their superpowers and must escape from the secret facility where they are being held against their will. The nightmare creature known as the Demon Bear, who appeared in many of those early New Mutants issues, is said to be one of the main antagonists within the film.
Boone previously described the spinoff as a horror film, with no supervillains or superhero costumes.
Opening on April 13, 2018, New Mutants stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin/Magik, Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane, Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie/Cannonball, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar/Mirage and Alice Braga as Doctor Cecilia Reyes.
