X marks the spot for Alice Braga…
20th Century Fox has released a first-look at the upcoming film, The New Mutants, starring the 34-year-old Brazilian actress.
“Do you know what mutants are?” asks the trailer, which features a dark hollow hospital setting and creepy figures protruding from the walls.
The Josh Boone-directed X-Men spinoff takes a more horror genre approach than the usual superhero action film.
“This is not a hospital. It’s a haunted house,” a patient exhorts in the trailer, aptly dropped on Friday the 13th.
Written by Boone and Knate Lee, the film will center on an angst-driven adventures of a diverse group of teens that include Native American Danielle Moonstar, Scots girl Wolfsbane, a Kentuckian code-named Cannonball, Russian teen Magik, as well as an alien named Warlock.
In addition to Braga, the star of television series Queen of the South as the character Cecilia Reyes, the film also stars Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga and Blu Hunt.
The film will open in theaters on April 13, 2018.
