While last year’s Dark Phoenix was the seemingly end of the main X-Men series, following its commercial failure and the Disney/Fox deal, there is a spin-off movie waiting in the wings. The New Mutants was shot way back in 2017, and has suffered a series of delays ever since. But it’s finally set to hit theaters in April, and a new poster has been released.
The film is a horror-themed superhero movie and the spooky new poster certainly captures this vibe. It shows the five young stars–Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Blu Hunt, Henry Zaga, and Charlie Heaton–with the movie’s title placed over their faces, revealing their skulls. Check it out below:
This poster follow the most recent trailer, which was released earlier this month. The New Mutants releases on April 3 and also stars Alice Braga (Elysium), Antonio Banderas (Spy Kids), and Happy Anderson (Mindhunter). It’s directed by Josh Boone, who previously made the hit teen drama The Fault in our Stars and is the co-writer and director of the upcoming TV adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand.
The New Mutants was originally set for an April 2018 release, but rumors of extensive reshoots and repeated delays caused some to wonder if we’d ever actually see it–including the film’s own exasperated cast members. But not only have a new trailer and poster arrived in the past few weeks, Boone himself recently posted an image of the main cast assembled to watch the final film. So whatever happens now, at least they’ve seen it. For more, check out GameSpot’s guide to everything we know so far about The New Mutants.
