Official Poster Makes it Crystal Clear: ‘The New Mutants’ is a Horror Movie

Director Josh Boone promised right out of the gate that The New Mutants was going to be a full-on horror movie, and the trailer indicated that he wasn’t lying about that.

The just released official poster also plays up the horror element, reminding of a certain scene in A Nightmare on Elm Street and of the poster for Peter Jackson’s Frighteners.

Check it out below.

In the film, “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 cast includes Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa a.k.a Sunspot, a mutant with the ability to absorb and channel solar power; Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, the Native American telepath also known as “Mirage”; Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself but also has more going on than she lets on; Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin, also known as Magik, who uses teleportation; Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie, a.k.a. Cannonball; and Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair, a.k.a. Wolfsbane, who can turn into a wolf.

Boone directed from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee.

The New Mutants will arrive on April 13, 2018.

    Such a call out to Dream Warriors! Omg I love it!

  • I’m loving it. Hollywood films so rarely put effort into making an atmospheric art poster these days. It’s usually just Photoshop rubbish.

    Cant wait for this film, love the talent involved and the characters, also love how its going to be a horror themed superhero film.

    Exactly how is this poster making it “crystal clear it’s a horror film”? Click bait.

    That wall balloon effect is so 90’s.
