I was complaining why it took so long for this to get filmed but if it wrapped in less then two months guess that answers why. Though if it's suppose to be more horror/psychological themed then that would be fine explaining the short running time. And IMHO that can work especially since it seems that FOX is taking the lesson from stuff like Deadpool and Logan that if they want to survive and make successful comic book movies that net major profit and acclaim they have to do the things and stories regular MCU couldn't touch. And yeah in the MCU you couldn't have one of the big tentpoles have a huge horror focus never mind an R rated one but obviously FOX has different standards when it comes to that.

9 /20: Fox CEO Snider describes movie, "New Mutants is about these teenagers who are just coming into their powers. It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous. The only solution is to put them in a Breakfast Club detention/Cuckoo’s Nest institutional setting. It protects the people on the outside, but it’s strange and combustible inside. The genre is like a haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers. We haven’t seen it as a superhero movie whose genre is more like The Shining than ‘we’re teenagers let’s save the world"

10 /10: Anna-Joy confirms New Mutants will be darker than the other X-Men movies.

So... the trailer's up.


It looks like a straight-up horror movie so I'm sure this will be darker than Logan. I thought they were just going to use some horror elements but if it's a full-on horror movie with powered teenagers, I'm out. I don't do horror. Something like 10 Cloverfield Lane is as far as I go.

If Venom is like this, I guess I won't be watching a couple of the superhero movies next year. Hopefully other people will like this, but I was hoping for a slightly darker First Class style thriller movie.

Well, they successfully did make this a horror film. It looks like the horror elements are coming from the other mutants. We'll see how things pan out. If this is a true adaptation of Demon Bear Saga, this just might be 'R' rated. If they're smart they shot stuff for an 'R'/unrated cut, but will release it PG 13 to get more kids in.

I'm really happy with the trailer. They're expanding the cinematic universe into the horror genre and not just making another safe X-Men spin off movie. After watching it, makes total sense they wanted to release the first teaser trailer around October 13. I know of Ann-Joy from The Witch and Braga most recently from Queen of the South. A lot of concerns about how the movie will turn out went out the window.
