New Mutants Wraps Principal Photography

The New Mutants are done with the first part of their journey to the big screen. Director Josh Boone revealed on his Instagram account that that the film has wrapped principal photography, sharing pictures with some of the film's stars to celebrate. 

The upcoming movie will find its mutants held in a secret facility against their will, where they must battle the dangers of their powers and the sins of their pasts to try and escape. Boone previously said that the film will be like an X-Men "horror movie," with no costumes and no supervillains. "We're trying to do something very, very different," he said.

Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams leads the movie as Rahne Sinclaire, also known as Wolfsbane, a mutant who struggles to find middle ground between her religious beliefs and her ability to turn into a wolf. She'll be joined by Stranger Things' Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie, aka Cannonball, a teen with the ability to throw himself high into the air and become invincible while doing so, and 13 Reasons Why's Henry Zaga as Roberto "Bobby" da Costa, a smooth-talking Brazilian ladies man with the ability to absorb and channel solar power.

The rest of the cast includes Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Nikolievna Rasputina, aka Magik, a Russian teen who is also powerful young sorceress with the ability to use special discs to teleport, Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, aka Psyche, a mutant with the power to give people visions of their greatest fears and desires, and Alice Braga, who replaced Rosario Dawson as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, the team's mentor and a mutant with the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself. The movie will also feature an alien named Warlock. 

New Mutants has an April 13, 2018 release date. While we wait, read up on some things you probably didn't know about the superhero team.
