This trailer is WAY too long, but this looks solidly good. Plus Pugh is always great. I feel like it could have built up to that wavering plane shot, and left it at that.

Rumored to have legit sex in it. Directed by the cougar chick from House who left Sudekis (Ted Lasso dude) for boy toy One Direction child. She's supposed to be freaky deaky and was alleged to be all about bringing the "reality" to the sex scenes. On an interesting note, Sudekis had the House chick director served with custody papers (they have two children) while she was at a film festival on stage talking about the movie.

THE NEW MUTANTS

So it’s NOT the “horror” movie it was advertised as. Like not even a little bit. There are moments of sort of scary monsters…and maybe the “asylum” element led them to advertise it like that….but it’s not a horror of any description. I expect DS2 to have more blood in fact.

It’s also not bad at all. It just that the first 2 acts are really bog standard teenage angst/sex/relationships being analyzed in a supposed “nuthouse” for new mutants who might be ‘dangerous’. And the third act is a whole X-Men movie.

Spoiler


So yeah, buried in there is a cool movie about these kids discovering their powers, but it’s lying behind every single teen angst movie you’ve ever seen with no further bells or whistles.

I will say that it was cool as heck to see Illya Rasputin and Lockheed and their powers in live action…but yeah I can see why neither Fox nor Disney really knew what to do with it. It’s not awful, but it’s not good either, and I have no idea how you market it...cause it's not a horror or a superhero movie...it's both and neither.

I love that they made a whole movie based around that Funny or Die skit. LOL! Can't wait to see this!

Got tickets for the 35th anniversary screening of RoboCop for me and the missus. She's never seen it before. This could go very wrong. But hey, maybe I misremember the level of ultraviolence in the film. Fingers crossed.
She went and she left me like litter. She took all future summers with her. I lost all my money cuz I tried to bribe her. Now I can only afford an amateur sniper.
