WATCH: The first trailer for The New Mutants takes X-Men in a whole new direction

October 13th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Director Josh Boon’s The New Mutants has its first trailer and it’s… different? And it really, really has our attention…

Boon had said he was going for a haunted house vibe with this X-Men movie and it really looks like he’s nailed it as it looks like a House on Haunted Hill more than The Last Stand and tells the story of the story of the New Mutants, a team of mutant heroes comprised of the first graduates from Charles Xavier’s school..

And that’s pretty awesome as The X-Men universe is a massive one and the thoughts that out there scary stories are happening too is an attractive one.

It really looks like, with Deadpool and Logan, the X-Men universe has grown up.

Let us know your thoughts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
