The New Mutants is officially the final X-Men film from the 20th Century Fox era of the franchise and releases in a couple of months.
Some very early box office tracking for the Marvel flick directed by Josh Boone is a little soft with a range of $15-25 million according to BoxOffice.
Its cast includes Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Rahne Sinclair aka Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Last Night In Soho) as Illyana Rasputina aka Magik, Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) Sam Guthrie aka Cannonball, Alice Braga (Predators) as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, Blu Hunt as Dani Moonstar aka Mirage, and Henry Zaga (The Stand) as Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot.
New Mutants features multiple X-Men characters including Sunspot, who was previously seen in X-Men: Days of Future Past and had been played by Mexican actor Adan Canto.
This detail along with talk that New Mutants seemingly won’t have connections the previous Singerverse might suggest the film will be a single standalone story.
The spinoff was made for significantly less than Simon Kinberg’s costly Dark Phoenix as that film’s budget was reportedly $200 million.
New Mutants likely doesn’t need to make a massive amount during the opening weekend and luckily the studio didn’t invest in pricey reshoots. The New Mutants should have an increase in social media awareness once the film’s marketing starts to really kick-in next month.
While fans are speculating that New Mutants possibly being retrofitted to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that hasn’t been proven or confirmed.
20th Century Studios and Disney have given The New Mutants a release date of April 3rd, one week before No Time To Die is expected to make a decent chunk of money.
The New Mutants, an original horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.
