In this terrifying, action-fueled film based on the MARVEL comic series, five young people who demonstrate special powers are brought to a secret institution to undergo treatments they are told will cure them of the dangers of their powers. Included are Danielle Moonstar aka Mirage (Blu Hunt), who creates illusions from other people’s fears; Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), who transforms into the werewolf Wolfsbane; Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton), who, as Cannonball, can fly at jet speeds protected by a force field; Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot (Henry Zaga), who absorbs and channels solar power; and Illyana Rasputin aka Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy). The younger sister of Colossus, Magik becomes encased in armor at will and wields a soulsword that amplifies her multiple superhuman and psychic abilities. Invited by Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga) to share their stories about when their powers first manifested, the five “patients” come to understand that they are in a class of people called mutants, who have historically been marginalized and feared. As they relive their origin stories, their memories seem to turn into terrifying realities. Soon, they question what is real and what isn’t, and it becomes clear that the institution isn’t what it seems. Now the question is — why are they being held captive? And who is trying to destroy them? The tension and horror mount in this white-knuckle thrill ride directed by Josh Boone and co-written by Boone and Knate Lee.




  • New Mutants

    This is a great movie you won’t regret it. I just hope it’s the beginning of the next x-men series.
  • Would not watch again

    This is not the new mutants. These are young adults who don’t know how to control their power or don’t really know what power they have. Lots of time wasted developing characters and not much on abilities. Some times I wonder do the studios even know who the audience is that consumes the content. Most people who watch mutant movies enjoy CGI, want to see the characters use their powers and see the villain fight against the characters. This movie missed the point but could have been really good. Felt like a slow moving horror movie. Little to no reason to spend the money.
  • could have been great

    By Steelwing Studios
    too bad about all the troubles it kept running into over the many setback release dates. makers kept changing their minds about what kind of movie it should be. started out as a horror. then they got scared that might limit audience approval too much. so they refilmed & re-edited it as a standard superhero action. then got scared that was too overdone, so reworked it as a drama. then realized that was stupid, and tried to make it all three ideas. but just meant they couldn't go far enough in any of those directions to stand tall in any one, and it just feels held back and muddy and nothing special. so much wasted potential. so many idiots in charge of movies lately.
  • Honestly, Terrible

    By AmplifiedLife
    I usually don’t write reviews, bcos who cares what I think, but I had been waiting for this film. For a long time... so I wanted it to be good, like a fan does. But unfortunately it is not good. I found myself cocking my head, like a confused dog, and to myself saying out loud “wait, what?”. It was that jarring. Literally. And early in the film too. For the record, I found the visual fx & sound to be well done, but the story was so poorly presented, it wasn’t even fun to watch the rest a second time. So I fast forwarded to just the few VFX moments and then deleted the whole thing. Who do you blame when nearly every aspect of a movie ends up this flawed? Lastly, the acting was uneven, to be polite, but their accents were cringe worthy. Show stopping. The kind of acting that is so unprofessional, it takes you out of the story and forces you to think about how much these people get paid, compared to people like first responders. You may resent all artists, for a moment. Some of the acting was that bad to me. Watch for yourself. Like this review, it’s just... not good
  • Better than most Xman movies

    By Digi-Bird
    This has a lot better story than most xman movies, even has a teaching moment about fear. Lot better than it’s rated for.
  • Nothing really NEW about it!

    By 16 HORSES
    New Mutants for all intent and purposes is just a wannabe X-Men movie! While nowhere near X2, X-Men Days of future past or Logan its still likable to a fault! Anya Taylor-Joy did show her continued range in acting more or less just don’t expect any Oscars!
  • About this movie

    By Dabmcdab
    When I first watched this I thought it was ok but I watched it the second time it was better I love one of the characters in this movie ! But I think it’s a pretty good movie even though that it got bad raiddings

  • Dont waste your money

    By Kikikers5565
    This movie was terrible, you think it will be good becuase its apart of marvel. No. It was written poorly and the story line is terrible. Its just over all stupid.
  • I was dubious at first, but it’s great.

    By Klaus vonnegut
    So let me preface this by saying I had low low low expectations going in due to how long this movie had been in production hell, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good this was, it is a super hero/ psychological horror mashup, and it works! The problem I think some people have is that these characters are lesser known if you don’t know a lot about marvel comics, however they’re all acted well, and as true to the original characters as they can be. There are also some great links here that can be used to move into the X-men universe too since Illyana Rasputin is the younger sister of Colossus, the Essex corporation is mentioned which is a link to a Marvel villain the eugenics obsessed mutant Mr.Sinister, who in my opinion would be a great addition to upcoming X-men movies as well. Lockheed the wyvern is introduced which I thought would never happen so maybe we’ll eventually get a real Kitty Pride aka Shadowcat. So there is a lot of potential here that I for one want to see realized. Give the movie a chance, I personally went from seeing it as a Redbox rental to buying it.
