    Well, this is a bit different, for a Marvel film.
    A horror movie, set in the X-Men universe.

    I saw this trailer yesterday in the theater and honestly didn't care for it. I've seen all the Marvel films so will watch this as well but the trailer failed.

    Haven't really thought about this series since the 80s, but making it into a horror movie makes a lot of sense given the nature of many of the members powers and abilities. One is a werewolf. Another is a lord of a pocket hell dimension. Another can perceive when somebody will soon die and can even fight the personification of Death itself. And yet another was an alien technoorganic being that can literally suck the life out of anything and anyone it touches. I also remember a lot of stories being on the dark side, so this direction has a lot of logic going for it.

    Loved the New Mutants as a kid. Surprised they get a feature film. Thought this would be a series.

    After their success with R-rated movies, let's hope that Marvel aims for that with this one as well.

    New trailer:


    It's been a long wait seeing as the last trailer came out in October 2017 but hey, it looks good to me. Loving the dark horror tone and the fact that they aren't shying away from their powers. I'm not sure why Fox sat on this for so long but I'd find it pretty funny if this does really well and makes Disney $$$.

    Like Steel mentioned, it was never meant to be an R-rated. I'm not bothered by that. It seems to be pretty creepy looking regardless.

    I don't like superhero movies, but if this is in the 90-minute range I'll probably A-List it. In my experience, when a hyped movie is delayed for years (Cabin In The Woods, Trick 'r Treat, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, You're Next, etc) it typically ends up being something I'm into.

    Another example would be this weekend's Underwater (finished in 2017), which I'm not expecting to be good, but I'm hoping will be stupid trashy fun in the vein of Supernova. Although I believe that one's delay was caused by the sexual assault allegations against star TJ Miller.
