Meet ‘The New Mutants’ As Tickets Go On Sale For The X-Men Spinoff

Hard to believe the first we saw of The New Mutants was back in 2017 (!!!) and what we saw was pretty much crap. I’m not going to go over the many twists and turns, ups and downs Josh Boone’s X-Men spinoff has gone through. You know all of that shit already. What matters now is that buzz is actually pretty high following recent trailers, and the movie is DEFINITELY coming out on August 28th. In a theater. So get ready.

Disney and The New Mutants cast are pulling out all of the stops to learn you up on who these junior league X-Men are.  In a 60-second tease, Maisie Williams, Blu Hunt, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, and Anya Taylor-Joy introduce their characters and their powers. Finally, we get a really good look at Heaton powering up Cannonball’s rocket-fueled abilities. True to form, he spins wildly out of control…just like in the comics.

The New Mutants hits theaters on August 28th, and tickets are on sale now.
