New Mutants has wrapped its primary production, according to an image posted by director Josh Boone on Instagram. Boone and various cast members took to social media to celebrate the end of filming for the X-Men movie, due out in a mere seven months.
New Mutants is promising to be a different type of X-Men movie. Boone has called it a horror movie, and Fox could be heading a different direction with the X-Men. Thus far, there hasn’t been a lot of variety in tone, genre, or even theme to the X-Men movies before Deadpool. Now Deadpool is getting a sequel, and we’re getting a superhero horror movie in this new film. Now that production had wrapped, we should see our first footage in the next couple of months.
Today we wrapped a very special film… I'm so proud of our New Mutants family and what we've achieved. It's been one of the best experiences of my life, so thanks everyone for making it an unforgettable one and for an amazing movie. 🍾🔥🍾🔥 🇧🇷🌞#TheNewMutants #April2018 #Thatsawrap Hoje acabamos de fazer um filme muito especial. Estou muito orgulhoso da minha família Novos Mutantes e do que alcançamos. Foi uma das melhores experiências da minha vida… Agradeço a todos por torná-la inesquecível e por um filme incrível #OsNovosMutants #Abril2018
The film has had a very quick production — it began filming on July 9th, and will now enter post-production. Horror movies are usually filmed quicker than most, so no surprise there.
