Consider, if you will, the scratchy yellow font on the poster for The New Mutants. Harsh against the blacks/grays of the background, it seems to be more of a warning than a reassurance.
The implication – borne out by a statement in the trailer that ‘baby rattlesnakes are more dangerous than adult rattlesnakes’ – seems to be that young mutants are the things that go bump in the night. They are the scary beasties.
A violent encounter with a gang of local thugs leaves Tom with fragments of his smartphone embedded in his brain. He awakens from a coma to find he has been, in effect, upgraded and sets out to take his vengeance on the thugs – who also assaulted his best friend, Lucy.
iBoy stars Bill Milner and Maisie Williams and premieres on Netflix on January 27th. The trailer follows the break.
Maisie Williams – Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark – has signed to guest star on the BBC’s number one sci-fi export, Doctor Who.
Steven Moffat said of Williams’ character, “It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell.”
Season Nine of Doctor Who is currently shooting – new episode titles revealed today were The Girl Who Died written by Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat, and The Woman Who Lived by Catherine Tregenna. Sounds like a two-parter to me. For further details, follow the jump.
