The New Mutants, the latest film in the X-Men series, has finally gotten a new trailer. For perspective, the last trailer we got for the film was way back in October 2017 - Thor: Ragnarok hadn’t even come out yet!

The New Mutants centres on a group of five young mutants trapped in a secret facility. While learning about their powers, they find themselves having to work together to escape the facility and all its horrors. 

The comicbook movie boasts a pretty great cast, with actors like Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga and more. Even Antonio Banderas has been cast in a mysterious role for the movie. 

It has been a long two years since The New Mutants was supposed to hit theaters. First, it was delayed from 2018 to 2019 - in an attempt to avoid competing with Deadpool 2. Then, it was postponed to later in 2019 to avoid X-Men: Dark Phoenix. After Disney acquired Fox, it got delayed again to 2020. 

At this point, I’m shocked they didn’t just turn it into a Disney+ exclusive. It'll stand out from the rest of 2020’s superhero fare by being the only one focused on horror, at least. Disney has also made sure that the movie could act as the mutants’ introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if it does well

The New Mutants is set to be released on April 3, 2020. For now, at least.
