THE BIG QUESTIONS: 1. How many people feel okay enough to go see this in theaters in just 10 days? And how many theaters will be back up and running by then?
Now, while I love the comic books this story is based on, the trailers I’ve seen for The New Mutants don’t impress me. And it feels like this film might be better suited for streaming. It looks like it takes place in one location, with a lot of soul-searching therapy sessions. And while the action sequences do look cool, and limited. I wonder if we’ve seen the best moments in the trailers.
But lackluster trailers don’t mean that the film itself won’t be good, or possibly great. It just means that there are some red flags flying. So! Who’s going to go out to see this on the big screen?
