Later this month the long overdue The New Mutants will finally arrive in UK cinemas. Today we get a look at a new TV Spot for the film that reveals the young X-Men’s formidable powers.
The 30 second promo showcases the young mutants using those powers. Sunspot is engulfed in flames, Wolfsbane begins her transformation, Cannonball gets ready to take off, Finally Magik’s arm is covered with her protective armour.
It’s Magik’s transformation that’s excited fans as the 20th Century Studios also released a new synopsis which teases her connection. The new synopsis gives us more details of the film and that Magik is related to an X-Man, who we won’t spoil. Just beware below the TV Spot is that Synopsis!
In this terrifying, action-fueled film based on the MARVEL comic series, five young people who demonstrate special powers are brought to a secret institution to undergo treatments they are told will cure them of the dangers of their powers. Included are Danielle Moonstar aka Mirage (Blu Hunt), who creates illusions from other people’s fears; Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), who transforms into the werewolf Wolfsbane; Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton), who, as Cannonball, can fly at jet speeds protected by a force field; Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot (Henry Zaga), who absorbs and channels solar power; and Illyana Rasputin aka Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy). The younger sister of Colossus, Magik becomes encased in armor at will and wields a soulsword that amplifies her multiple superhuman and psychic abilities. Invited by Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga) to share their stories about when their powers first manifested, the five “patients” come to understand that they are in a class of people called mutants, who have historically been marginalized and feared. As they relive their origin stories, their memories seem to turn into terrifying realities. Soon, they question what is real and what isn’t, and it becomes clear that the institution isn’t what it seems. Now the question is — why are they being held captive? And who is trying to destroy them? The tension and horror mount in this white-knuckle thrill ride directed by Josh Boone and co-written by Boone and Knate Lee.
The film stars Maisie Williams (Wolfsbane), Anya Taylor Joy (Magik), Charlie Heaton (Cannonball), Henry Zaga (Sunspot), Blu Hunt (Mirage), and Alice Braga (Dr. Cecilia Reyes).
The New Mutants has now been confirmed for 28th August UK and Irish Cinemas. Some people are convinced this is heading to Disney+, this promo says otherwise!
