There’s something up with the new trailer of New Mutants. The team of mutants have joined forces to showcase their props and get the hype going ahead of the impending release. You can see fight scenes and ‘cool moments’ in the clips appeasing the audience. The initial trailer was part introduction to the characters and this new trailer is sort of an action-based reveal to showcase some of fantastic scenes of the movie.
The whole cast comes together again and you can see some popular names like Maisie Williams and Charlie Heaton, all from popular shows that you’re now familiar with. Other popular names making up the cast include Anya Taylor-Joy, from the famous M. Night Shyamalan movie Split, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt, and Henry Zaga.
The entire plot of the movie 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.
Safe to say it doesn’t sound much like an original idea for movie studio. There’s a reason for that. First, 21st Century Fox was acquired by Disney and the properties they owned, including the X-men franchise was also bought by Disney.
Any plans 21st Century Fox had with the original X-men have been scratched to make way for a revised X-men franchise under Marvel Studios. This left 21st century Fox in an awkward position and scraping for ideas in order to replace that hole. To do that, they introduced this new movie and a couple of big names to play the roles. In an effort to revive some of that talent previously working on X-men material and at least giving the movie a chance by casting names already established from other big projects.
As far as it looks this might be an impressive movie. Although it may not be like the other X-men movies, it does have some interesting actions beats.
