Did you get your tickets for The New Mutants? If not, you should remedy that because pre-orders are available now. We’ll wait!
Back? Awesome! Because we have some exclusive artwork for the long-awaited Marvel Comics adaptation to share with you today. It’s stylish, it’s colorful, its comic-inspired and informed, and it hails from Dolby Cinema ahead of their release of Josh Boone‘s genre-bending film on Friday, August 28. Here’s a bit more about it before we show it to you in all its gory glory:
About the art:
The Dolby Cinema exclusive poster art for “The New Mutants” features a bear claw in it, which fans will recognize from the Demon Bear Saga comics which Josh Boone based The New Mutants off of.
Check it out here:
Be sure to click on this poster to embiggen it and enjoy the details. What details? Well, of course there’s the overall bear paw / claw print that stamps out our title heroes (or tries to, anyway), though you might not want to dig into the Demon Bear mythology before the film comes out if you’re not familiar with it. Elsewhere in this poster, however, are the title team members and artistic interpretations of their powers: Blu Hunt‘s Danielle Moonstar has her psychic / psionic abilities on display (under the thumb of the bear, however), Charlie Heaton‘s Sam Guthrie heats up with his ability to generate and release thermo-chemical energy from his body, Anya Taylor-Joy‘s Illyana Rasputin conjures her Magikal Soulsword, Maisie Williams‘ Rahne Sinclair looks positively wolfish, and Henry Zaga‘s Roberto da Costa harnesses the power of the sun. Cool stuff. Can’t wait to see it in action on the big screen!
