josh boone, director of the upcoming x-men spinoff the new mutants, has released a promotional still from his film that sees the film's central team of mutants gather to homage the cover for ac/dc's legendary album highway to hell.
take a look at boone's post to instagram, and the actual highway to hell album cover, below.
directed by the fault in our stars’ boone, the new mutants adapts the work of fan-favorite new mutants comics creators chris claremont and bill sienkiewicz, in particular the critically-acclaimed “demon bear saga” arc that found the teenage students of charles xavier’s school for gifted youngsters isolated from their mentors and the world by a freak snowstorm and forced to overcome their own differences to save themselves and their teammate danielle moonstar from a demonic bear that killed her parents.
the new mutants is described by the director as “a full-fledged horror movie set within the x-men universe.” a plot synopsis reads: “held in a secret facility against their will, five new mutants have to battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past. they aren’t out to save the world — they’re just trying to save themselves.”
the new mutants releases on april 13, 2018. the film stars maisie williams (game of thrones) as wolfsbane, anya taylor-joy (atlantis) as magik, charlie heaton (stranger things) as cannonball, blu hunt (the originals) as dani moonstar and henry zaga (13 reasons why) as sunspot.
