The perpetually delayed Marvel/Fox super-hero movie with a horrific take is now set to release in theaters on August 28th. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Disney’s calendar was taken off and New Mutants was until today, Wednesday, without a release date yet, which many was cogitating that the feature was on his path directly to VOD or Disney+ streaming. But no, Disney still believes it is a good film to take viewers back to cinemas after they start their reopening.
The New Mutants is now a production from Fox and Marvel Studios as we can see it on the new poster below
The movie is a spinoff from X-Men where young mutants are trapped in a secret facility with a dubious doctor (Cecília Reyes) played by Alice Braga. The cast includes Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana/Magik; Maisie Williams as Rahne/ Wolfsbane, Charlie Heaton as Sam/Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Roberto/Sunspot and Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar.
The storyline goes something like this:
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 movie is directed by Josh Boone, who also written with Knate Lee based on the Marvel comics by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod. Boone also directed The Fault in Our Stars (2014).
