‘New Mutants’ uses horror theme in new poster, an homage to ‘Elm Street’

20th Century Fox has released the first poster for the upcoming X-Men spin-off The New Mutants, and it’s definitely aligned with the horror theme of the film.

The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone directed The New Mutants and co-wrote the script with Knate Lee (Kidnap), which takes place in a secret facility where young mutants are housed, only just now learning what their abilities can do.

The film’s first trailer introduced the horror vibe and visual allusions to The Nightmare on Elm Street, and it’s that Wes Craven classic from which this first poster gets its inspiration.

Boone has said the plan is for The New Mutants to kick off a trilogy of horror X-Men movies, with the first film intended to be a “rubber-reality supernatural horror movie,” while the further sequels would delve into other aspects of the genre.

Check out the New Mutants poster below.

The film stars Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) as Magik, Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) as Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Mirage, and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

New Mutants opens in theaters on April 13, 2018.
