The first trailer for X-Men: The New Mutants opens with a creepy version of Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick In The Wall” sung by children, immediately tipping us off that this movie is going to be unlike any other film in the long-running franchise. Gone are the flashy X-Uniforms and hallowed halls of X-Mansion. In their place? Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Stranger Things‘s Charlie Heaton running for their damn lives.
The three, along with Henry Zaga and Blu Hunt, play a group of young, inexperienced mutants whose abilities are finally rising to the surface. Unfortunately they’re also being held in a top secret facility against their will, and the only way to escape the horrors within might leave them even more scarred. Watch the horrifying trailer for the slasher-meets-X-Men flick above before the movie hits theaters on April 13, 2018.
