The official trailer has been released for 20th Century Fox/Marvel’s The New Mutants, starring the 26-year-old Brazilian actor.
A first teaser for the film was released during CinemaConin 2017, kicking off a long road for the comic adaptation for Josh Boonethat has included several release dates, reshoots, the Disney regime change and even thoughts of putting the film on Hulu.
But now it appears the latest theatrical release date — April 3 — will stick.
The X-Menspinoff moves outside the box of the more traditional Marvel fare, with Boone’s film written by Boone & Knate Leebilled as a horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where young mutants are being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.
In addition to Zaga, who portrays Roberto da Costa / Sunspot, the film also stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga and Blu Hunt.
It’s the first Fox/Marvel release since X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which launched in June. Directed by Kinberg, the dark tale of Jean Grey stumbled to an estimated $100 million-$120 million loss after ancillaries, which like New Mutants also included reshoots. It ended up grossing $252 million worldwide.
