The New Mutants was the first major film to be released in theaters during the pandemic, but it didn't exactly set the box office on fire. Instead, Fox's final X-Men film earned a lowly $45.9 million on an estimated budget of between $65 - $80 million. Whether it can make up the money on Digital and home media remains to be seen, but there's still no word on a Disney+ debut.
It's bound to end up there eventually, of course, and the only reason it probably hasn't up until this point is because contractual obligations mean it had to receive that initial theatrical run.
Now the film is available to purchase, our friends at Screen Junkies have shared their hilarious Honest Trailer which certainly doesn't shy away from skewering the Marvel Comics adaptation. Like the rest of us, they loved Anya Taylor Joy's Magik, but The Queen's Gambit star can do no wrong!
No one really emerges unscathed, however, and the only reason their respective careers haven't been damaged by The New Mutants is because everyone knew it would be a disaster beforehand. Love or hate the film, this Honest Trailer should definitely get a smile out of you as it's undeniably funny.
