The New Mutants has had a new trailer released - around two years after fans got their first glimpse at the film. The movie was set to be the first ever superhero horror film, but due to Disney’s acquisition of Marvel and 20th Century Fox, the project has been on hold for quite some time. The film finally has its release date - and here is that along with everything there is to know about The New Mutants.
The New Mutants will be released in UK cinemas on April 8.
This comes after a few territories, such as France, who will see the film from April 1, before American audiences will see the film open on April 3.
However, due to the latest James Bond movie, No Time to Die, coming out in the UK on April 2, it is likely the studio chose to shift the film slightly later so it is more likely to get its audience.

According to the official synopsis from Fox The New Mutants follows a fairly simple, horror film plot.
The synopsis reads: “Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.”
The original trailer for the film seemed to suggest there were a huge number of horror elements to this film, while the new trailer, likely green lit by Marvel, is far more likely to be full of thrills, but perhaps not quite as horrific.
