Planned As The Start Of A Trilogy

Planned As The Start Of A Trilogy

Fox's decision to turn The New Mutant's series into a horror trilogy is one of the best things to happen to superhero movies in quite a while.

Now director Josh Boone has provided something of a teaser on the matter, in a recent interview with IGN. While New Mutants filmed in Boston, Massachusetts over the summer, very little information got out from the set and we previously knew very little about the movie.

Speaking with IGN, director Josh Boone dropped a wealth of information about the film's connection to the New Mutants comics written in the '80s by author Bill Sienkiewicz, to some of the more obvious horror imagery evoked by the trailer, including a prevailing connection to A Nightmare on Elm Street, and the second sequel Dream Warriors in particular.

Watch out for The New Mutants to arrive in Australian cinemas on April 12 and to open in U.S. cinemas on April 13, 2018.




"These are all going to be horror movies, and they're all be their own distinct kind of horror movies", Boone said.

And if The New Mutants becomes a success, Boone already has a plan for more. "This is certainly the 'rubber-reality" supernatural horror movie. Our take was just going to examine the horror genre through comic book movies and make each one its own distinct sort of horror film. "I think of the mainline X-Men movies more as grand operative science-fiction films". He hopes his first foray into comic book movies will also pave the way for more horror-related comic properties given that directors such as James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), David F. Sandberg (Shazam!), and James Wan (Aquaman) all cut their teeth in the horror genre before transitioning to superhero movies. It's worth mentioning that The New Mutants isn't Boone's only foray into horror; his name has been attached to a couple big Stephen King adaptations, The Stand and The Talisman. If Deadpool was an R-rated parody of the superhero genre and Logan was a Western-infused character study, The New Mutants trailer boasts a terrifying exploration of trauma and inner demons.

Boone does say he plans to include characters like Karma and Warlock in future New Mutants movies, but he's incredibly cagey about what fans can expect in this first New Mutants beyond the fact that it takes place in present day.
