This New Marvel Movie Is Switching It Up On The Superhero Genre With Horror Movie Vibes

“Did you know baby rattle snakes are more dangerous than adult ones?”

Fox and Marvel just released a new trailer for “The New Mutants,” an X-Men spinoff that takes place in what appears to be a horror movie-style insane asylum. Starring Brazilian actress Alice Braga (“Queen of the South” and “I Am Legend”) as a seemingly sinister doctor, the movie also features “Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor (“Split”), Charlie Heaton (“Stranger Things”) and Henry Zaga (“13 Reasons Why”) who is of Spanish, Brazilian, Italian and Portuguese descent.

On IMDB, the film is titled “X-Men: The New Mutants.” The synopsis reads, “Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.” It’s interesting to see that “X-Men” is absent from the title in the trailer, possibly as an attempt to distance itself from the expectations of the classic franchise. The film appears to be taking a different path with a horror movie feel, vastly different from superhero movies that are heavy on spandex and action scenes. A different tone could be a good move for Marvel, since switching things up worked so well for the Ryan Reynolds hit “Deadpool.”

The film is set for an April 2018 release.

9 Songs You Didn’t Know Bruno Mars Helped Write And Produce

1. “F*ck You!” by Ceelo Green

Mars collaborated with CeeLo Green and The Smeezingtons (the writing and producing team Mars was part of at the time) to create the famous single “F*ck You.” This song was also known as “Forget You” and “Thank You” due to radio censorship. After being released in 2010, the single became an international success, breaking the top 10 in several countries.

2. “Right Round” by Flo Rida ft. Kesha


This single was inspired by 80’s hit “You Spin Me Round” by Dead or Alive, which you hear a sample of throughout the song. Mars co-wrote this song with Flo Rida and ever since it was released in 2009, the song has reached over 12 million downloads.

3. “All I Ask” by Adele


Mars co-wrote this song with Adele and it was released in her 2015 album, “25.” Even though Adele was a bit of a diva at first, once she and Mars began to work on the song together they had a lot of fun and Mars was impressed by her powerful vocals.

Mars performed a cover of “All I Ask” himself, but gave it a little romantic, R&B twist…


4. “Love Me” by Justin Bieber


Mars and his production team, The Smeezingtons, worked together to write “Love Me,” which was released in 2009. This song was dedicated to all of Bieber’s fans, thanking them for all of their unconditional love and support.

5. “Dumb love” by Sean Kingston


“Dumb Love” was co-written by The Smeezingtons and The Jackie Boyz, another team of songwriters that consisted of two brothers. As part of Sean Kingston’s third studio album, this pop, r&b hit was released in 2010.

6. “Tears Always Win” by Alicia Keys


Written by Mars and his Smeezington partners, “Tears Always Win” was released in 2013, as part of Alicia Keys’ famous album “Girl On Fire.”

7. “One Day” by Matisyahu


Written by Mars and his team, The Smeezingtons, “One Day” was released in 2008 as part of Matisyahu’s third album. Later in 2010, there was a second version of the song recorded and released which featured R&B singer Akon.

8. “Never Close Our Eyes” by Adam Lambert


If you’re a devoted American Idol fan, then you might remember Adam Lambert from season eight of the show. Mars and The Smeezingtons worked together to write “Never Close Our Eyes” which was released in 2012, as part of Lambert’s second studio album.

9. “Can We Dance” by The Vamps


Mars worked with British Pop band, The Vamps, and helped co-write “Can We Dance” which was released in 2013.
