The New Mutants has a tone unlike any other movie says star of the film Anya Taylor-Joy ahead of release.
The New Mutants, the last Fox-produced X-Men film, now coming out under the Disney umbrella, is finally coming to cinemas after a long time on the shelf. But what will the film be like, especially compared to other recent comic book films?
Well, star of the film Anya Taylor-Joy has spoken to DigitalSpy about what fans can expect:
“I think this is unlike any tone I’ve seen before on film in the sense that you’ve got a lot of things playing where, of course, we’re superheroes, but [director Josh Boone] is treating us very much like people.
“It very much has the feel of a coming-of-age story and then you have the darkness that comes with that, moments of levity and then, of course, we all have powers. It’s very unique.”
Hopefully, the long wait for the film and arduous production will be worthwhile in the end. It’s April release date is fast approaching!
