‘The New Mutants’: Tickets On Sale Now and Two New Posters Unleashed

After a seemingly endless series of delays, Disney’s Twentieth Century Studios is finally (for real, this time) releasing Josh Boone‘s The New Mutants in theaters on August 28, though it of course must be noted that this doesn’t quite break the “curse” attached to the movie. After all, many theaters across the United States still won’t even be opened up by next week.

And many movie-goers, even if their local theaters are open, likely won’t feel comfortable taking the risk. The play here, we can only assume, is that Disney is releasing The New Mutants in theaters so that they can meet their contractual obligations, set forth long before the arrival of COVID-19, and they’ll likely bring it to at-home VOD as soon as they possibly can.

But in the meantime, yes, The New Mutants is being released in many U.S. theaters on August 28. Check local listings and find exclusive new Cinemark and Dolby Cinema art below.

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?
