The New Mutants is a 2020 American horror film in the superhero genre, based on the Marvel Comics team of the same name.

It was intended to be a spin-off of the X-Men franchise then Marvel decided it’ll serve as its final installment.

From the official site and trailer, we learn that  young mutants  with some really quirky super powers are being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.

The trailer is replete with fascinating CGI visuals and fast-paced action.

Seasoned film critic Peter Deburge of the Variety describes the New mutants this way “It’s like The Breakfast Club on steroids. These five misfits slowly overcome their differences, bonding and becoming friends by the time Boone reveals a twist he must have thought would blow the minds of those second-guessing how the movie relates to all the old mutants from the “X-Men” comics”.

A psychological thriller tailored for the last batch of millennials and coming to age Gen-Z
