    Teaser Trailer to debut tomorrow.

    I guess since the actual movie debuts on Friday the 13th April next year, a Friday the 13th reveal in October (Horror) is fitting.

    What I want to know is, why we don't have a new Friday the 13th this year.

    We need the original mutant back killing horny teenagers.

    No idea.

    I admit if you took out the Marvel logo and the title, I would have no idea that this is a NM or Fox x-men movie.

    While the original comic had horror elements like Illyana and Limbo with Sym/Belasco etc and the Demon Bear with trippy sequences, it feels like they went too much in that direction.

    Then again in a world with a dozen comic movies coming per year and the success of Logan the western, it does make you feel the crew is trying to differentiate itself to stand out and draw attention which is good.

    As long as the acting is good and we get good characterization of the kids, I'm down.

    The female doctor is Dr. Cecilia Reyes played by Alice Braga (originally Rosario Dawson but she left due to filming conflicts)

    Sh'es a friendly, black Puerto Rican trauma surgeon in the comics. Maybe the editing makes it seem more creepy than she's supposed to be lol

    It looks like a generic horror movie. I can give them credit for doing something different with the X-Men films.

    I havn't read comics in years but is that the one that has shields? Having Moira there would kinda be more cannon.

    Background on the comics leading to this:

    article going through comic storyline they sourced this movie from They mention Sienkiewicz's art in there: it's just fantastic.

    why the director chose that storyline

    gallery of art from the comic for the lazy the lead image there alone (big spoiler) is great desktop wallpaper

    Seriously great storyline. Can't wait to see what they do with it, even if that's going to be hell to translate to the screen.

    i dont think its the editing...i think shes supposed to be creepy. but most likely its creepy from the point of view of kids trying to understand themselves and being forced into situations that they had no choice in.

    This seems like an interesting take on a superhero type film, I'm willing to give it a shot.

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/10/13/new-mutants-director-on-why-hes-making-an-x-men-horror-film-and-more

    Interview with director Josh Boone

    Excerpts....

    IGN: We’ve seen Fox recently take some risks with the X-Men licence, but how have they let you make a horror movie?

    Josh Boone: Well, I really think it's because of what you said. I mean... FOX made Deadpool and Logan and they were sort of so tonally different they felt embolden to let us go make it different, and make have its own distinct tone and identity. I think of the mainline X-Men movies more as grand operative science-fiction films. This is much more of a performance-driven horror film.

    IGN: So what are the main influences on The New Mutants from the comics but also horror in general?

    Boone:Our whole pitch for this series was based on Bill Sienkiewicz run with Chris Claremont [The New Mutants vol. 1 #18–31, 35–38], so it's very much when New Mutants became dark and surreal and more horror driven. We were incredibly inspired by the Demon Bear story which is probably the best, well-known New Mutants story. We also drew on movies like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Stephen King stuff, and even Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.
    Darabont wrote that back in the day and that was very inspiring to us. If we'd had just done New Mutants the comic, it would've been very much set-up like an X-Men movie in the mansion with Professor X and all that. So we really wanted to do something different. So kind of what we brought to Sienkiewicz and Claremont's take on New Mutants was this idea they're all in a psych-hole for mutants.

    IGN: The shot with figures stretching through the walls instantly reminded me of Freddy…

    Boone: Yes, that’s my homage to Mr Craven, and we did it practically. They did that stupid remake of Nightmare and they did it with CGI, and I was like how did they do it in the original. They got rubber walls.
    90% of this movie was shot on real locations. We did as many of the effects practically as we could. It has some big visual effect stuff as well, but we really tried to do everything we could possibly do real so it would feel a little bit more like those movies we liked and were inspired by. 10% of the movie was green screen and nothing else really. We shot on in a 150 year-old mental hospital that'd been closed for 50 years.
    Literally every single person on my crew – all my grips – all those people had weird things happen to them while they were there. I even told the behind-the-scenes crew to go interview everyone who had weird stuff happen to them for an extra on the Blu-ray.


    IGN: What time period are we looking at?

    Boone: It takes place present day.

    IGN: So will we see other well-known X-Men characters we’ve met in the other movies?

    Boone:I can't... there's some things I can't talk about. I can just say it is connected to and a part of the X-Men universe, and will continue to be a part of the X-Men universe and will be a part of that as it opens up in the next movies and all that.
    Every video complains online about characters that aren't in it right now. I will say we're going to introduce new characters in the next movie as well. Characters like Karma and Warlock, and all that will be in future movies.
