X-Men: The New Mutants

X-Men-The-New-Mutants-1

Film Studio “20th Century Fox” is preparing a new surprise for fans – the thirteenth film about people with superhuman abilities. Five teenagers are in the same room, which looks like the building of a psychiatric clinic. Apart from them, there is almost no one there, but this is for the better – in the past they have repeatedly brought harm to peaceful people…

When is the “X-Men: The New Mutants” movie coming out?

Continuation of the superhero film “X-Men: The New Mutants” will appear in cinemas on April 3, 2020. The release date was postponed 3 times, starting from April 2018 – even then the picture was ready to enter the big screens.

This story against the background of the other films about people with supernormal abilities will be more dark, dark and atypical – this is the opinion of the director Josh Boone, who worked on the film “The New Mutants”.

Plot

Dr. Cecilia Reyes works with the mutants that came to her clinic. She tries to find out more about them, asks about her past life, wonders what they did before they went to the clinic, whether they hurt anyone… Teens are withdrawn and at first cannot understand – should they go to contact with a person which they barely know.

Rahne Sinclair, nicknamed Wolfsbane, seems quite hunted. This is not surprising – the child born of the union of an alcoholic and a tyrant, did not see anything good in life. Even the stamp in the form of the letter “W” on her forearm speaks of the pernicious influence of her father. Raine has so many fears that she is afraid to throw her abilities out.

Sam Guthrie not in vain has the nickname Cannonball. Flying off the ground, he makes terrible sounds and smells that resemble cannon shells. Arriving at the clinic, he seems to be one of the most sociable people with little ability. Even the sight of his broken arm speaks of weakness, but in reality everything turns out to be completely different.

Frame from the film

Illyana Rasputin many know under the pseudonym Magik. Her brother is a friend of Deadpool Colossus, a steel member of Team X. Illyana’s abilities are very different from Colossus’s abilities – the girl is a teleporter. It can move in space, in time, from place to place, but it does so through a portal that looks like a fiery hell.

Other participants have no less outstanding abilities. Once in the clinic, they become hostages of their own fears. Soon they will have to unite and face the danger that their main enemy will bring to this world. Let’s not reveal all the secrets of the film – just wait for the imminent premiere!
