Disney continues its marketing for Les Nouveaux Mutants by releasing another unexpectedly great poster. The final X-Men film Fox finished before it was bought by Disney, Les Nouveaux Mutants will finally open in April. Two years after its original 2018 release date. Co-written and directed by Josh Boone, the movie revolves around a group of young mutants struggling to control their powers. Who find themselves trapped in a secret facility. Les Nouveaux Mutants themselves are played by actors like Maisie Williams and Anya-Taylor Joy, who were smaller names whey they signed on all those years ago.
Being the last of Fox’s Marvel movies, many wondered if Disney would actually put any effort into marketing Les Nouveaux Mutants. Surprisingly, the Mouse House is arguably doing a better job of promoting the movie than Fox did. Unveiling stylish one-sheets and a new trailer. That plays up Les Nouveaux Mutants’ horror elements and connections to the greater X-Men mythology. That continues to be the case with the latest one-sheet that dropped online today.
This particular one-sheet is simple yet effective in design, quickly encapsulating the creepy and dark vibe Les Nouveaux Mutants is going for. By comparison, Fox and Boone always seemed to be at odds over the tone. The film should embrace, which resulted in the movie being delayed for reshoots in the first place. Fox was apparently uneasy about Boone’s horror approach early on. But changed its mind after the original New Mutants trailer. Which emphasized the film’s horror style – earned a warm reception back in 2017.
