Review based on overseas viewers:
• The New Mutants finally limping into cinemas after a long delay. The delay has been attributed to the studio buyout by Disney but when you view the final product it’s clear it was more about the quality of the film. The film played out as a horror film in the trailers but it’s clearly a film in need of a tone and its overall disappointment comes from too much build-up and no payoff.
Releasing date In India: 30th of October across India.
