The New Mutant hits theaters this weekend, and if you live in an area where movie theaters are open, you can go see it! I’m still in the dark on this one, but I’m still excited to see it!
With the film opening in theaters, we’ve got one more poster to share with you and new clip from the film that shows off a pretty cool and creepy moment!
I know the reviews for the film have been mixed, but I don’t care. I’m still stoked about seeing the movie after all these years. In fact, one of the film’s stars, Maisie Williams, recently shared one of the bad reviews that said The New Mutants is one of the worst X-Men movies ever, and that she responded in a great way.
Sounds like a must see! 🧚🏼♀️ Get your tickets now ✨ https://t.co/4fqry3JAse

This was a smart move on her part. If you read through the responses to her tweet, you’ll see a lot of fans saying ‘Fuck critics!’ and well as fans pledging to go out in see the film.
Anyway, check out the The New Mutants clip and poster below!
The movie was directed by Josh Boone, and you can check out the full synopsis below:
In this terrifying, action-fueled film based on the MARVEL comic series, five young people who demonstrate special powers are brought to a secret institution to undergo treatments they are told will cure them of the dangers of their powers. Included are Danielle Moonstar aka Mirage (Blu Hunt), who creates illusions from other people’s fears; Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), who transforms into the werewolf Wolfsbane; Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton), who, as Cannonball, can fly at jet speeds protected by a force field; Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot (Henry Zaga), who absorbs and channels solar power; and Illyana Rasputin aka Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy).
The younger sister of Colossus, Magik becomes encased in armor at will and wields a soulsword that amplifies her multiple superhuman and psychic abilities. Invited by Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga) to share their stories about when their powers first manifested, the five “patients” come to understand that they are in a class of people called mutants, who have historically been marginalized and feared. As they relive their origin stories, their memories seem to turn into terrifying realities.
Soon, they question what is real and what isn’t, and it becomes clear that the institution isn’t what it seems. Now the question is — why are they being held captive? And who is trying to destroy them? The tension and horror mount in this white-knuckle thrill ride directed by Josh Boone and co-written by Boone and Knate Lee.
