    Well, this is a bit different, for a Marvel film.
    A horror movie, set in the X-Men universe.

    I saw this trailer yesterday in the theater and honestly didn't care for it. I've seen all the Marvel films so will watch this as well but the trailer failed.

    Haven't really thought about this series since the 80s, but making it into a horror movie makes a lot of sense given the nature of many of the members powers and abilities. One is a werewolf. Another is a lord of a pocket hell dimension. Another can perceive when somebody will soon die and can even fight the personification of Death itself. And yet another was an alien technoorganic being that can literally suck the life out of anything and anyone it touches. I also remember a lot of stories being on the dark side, so this direction has a lot of logic going for it.

    Loved the New Mutants as a kid. Surprised they get a feature film. Thought this would be a series.

    After their success with R-rated movies, let's hope that Marvel aims for that with this one as well.
