This is according to Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton who plays Cannonball.
Now when The New Mutants was first announced it was somewhat implied that it would take on the horror elements this making it a horror film and even take on the rated R rating. But that was dispelled and then it was said it would take on the rated PG-13 rating. Next came both the push backs and reshoots has delayed the film to February of 2019. However, Heaton gives somewhat of a confirmation that we are a full-fledged horror movie.
“It’s basically about these mutants in a facility for damaged mutants. It’s a story about these characters coming to grips with who they are and it’s a horror X-Men movie, which we haven’t seen before. I feel like, for an X-Men movie, yeah, I think they’re going full-fledged horror. Without saying too much — I really don’t want to give away too much what it’s about, it’s very under wraps — but it is, in terms of anything we’ve seen in the X-Men world, it definitely is a horror film. It’s scarier than anything we’ve seen in that genre.”
This is definitely good news for fans who were looking forward to being scared in theaters. But also we can’t fully be sure this film may actually hit theaters. With the impending finalization of the Fox/Disney deal, this movie may go straight to the Disney streaming site or even straight to DVD/Blu-Ray or digital download.
But let not dwell too much on that. Heaton gives us some insight as to what we can expect from his character Cannonball: “Sam comes from Kentucky, and he’s kind of a working-class boy, and he has the ability to project himself through the sky like a cannonball.”
Ok then. We’re potentially going to see abilities as well on display as we should. Are you still excited for The New Mutants? Give us your thoughts.
Now this may be a good or bad thing but the word around the campfire is that the reason in which 20th Century Fox’s The New Mutants is being delayed again is because supposedly a little over 50% of the movie is having to be re-shot.
The teenage mutant film was already pushed back by 10 months in January, from April 13, 2018 to Feb. 22, 2019, purportedly to ratchet up the horror elements, and to add another character. But NOW from news broke on Tuesday that The New Mutants will move again, Aug. 2, 2019.
Now According to Collider, director JoshBoone delivered a new cut of the film, but Fox executives expressed that they want more additional photography, to make sure that the mutant horror film has its own distinct and unique vibe similar to how both way Deadpool and Logan are. The article goes on to further say more than 50 percent of the film could end up being reshot, which again is to bring a new or multiple characters into the story.
The film that originally was supposed to hit theaters this April and has been pushed back until next year is currently under going some reshoots. Now reshoots are nothing new and of course we hear about them with almost every film. But in this case it is a bit interesting because the reports are now out that those for Fox’s The New Mutants are adding a new character to the film.
Now it’s not known whether this new character is a new villain, a younger mutant or maybe even some top notch high-profile cameo. Let us know what you think.
The New Mutants sets to be one of the hottest if not interesting films of 2018. This R-rated horror take on a group of teens discovering they have special abilities has had many in the comic book movie and tv world alike in spin waiting on the final project.
First we got an trailer now we are getting more teasers. This one features Anna Taylor-Joy as Magik. Just in case you needed a small refresher, Magik, is the sister of Peter Rasputin/Colossus from Deadpool and other X-Men films, possesses mystical abilities (as her name might suggest). She can also use her powers for teleportation.
Here is the teaser
The New Mutants arrive in theaters on April 13, 2018
As you can hear on our latest podcast, dropped this morning (go to the podcast tab on this site,) your Trusty Sidekicks told you that an announcement was likely coming this morning and this morning it did come! In a massive buyout, Disney and Fox have agreed on a $52 billion deal for the Mouse House to take over the reigns on the entire film rights of 21st Century.
If you’re somehow unfamiliar to what this means (and honestly, if you’re reading this, I’m sure you are not,) Fox has had control over a number of Marvel comic book characters for a very long time, with the most obvious being the X-Men and Fantastic Four. With Disney’s acquisition, the potential to either spin currently successful and/or promising franchises like Deadpool, Legion, The New Mutants and The Gifted, into the current Marvel universe somehow, or to retool them along with other franchises that could possibly benefit from the awfully successful Marvel Studios touch.
There are some potential hold-ups in this deal as it would be the largest movie studio merger of all-time, and a reduction from what was already only 6 major studios. Large media mergers are always a subject of FCC approval, and considering the current ruling delivered today on net neutrality, there’s no telling how something like this might go. We also discuss some additional difficulties that Marvel itself may have regarding some of it’s new properties, on our latest episode (#74,) however, just like you, we’re already imagining who will end up fighting who when the eventual Secret Wars crossover happens! Are you excited about the merger? Tell us what you think!
After months and months of anticipation, we finally have a trailer for the Josh Boone film “The New Mutants”. Much was wondered what could be expected from a film in the X-Men family that was a full on horror movie and contained Mutants without costumes.
Well this trailer does not disappoint at all. Set I what appears to be an insane asylum or as called in the trailer “a haunted house” for this writer has a “House on Haunted Hill” vibe plus more. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
