Cape Town – A whole new X-Men franchise is about to be launched with the spin-off, The New Mutants.

On Friday the 13th Fox released the first trailer for the movie and it's is creepy AF as the superhero genre merges into a horror one.

The film introduces a group of young mutants: Games of Thrones' Maisie Williams as Rahne, Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana and Charlie Heaton as Sam.

From the trailer it looks like the teens are stuck in some kind of facility where horrible things happen.

Watch the trailer here:

In an interview with IGN director Jason Boone revealed that they pitched the film as a trilogy of horror movies.

He went on to describe the film as "a performance driven horror film."

"These are all going to be horror movies, and they're all be their own distinct kind of horror movies. This is certainly the ‘rubber-reality’ supernatural horror movie. The next one will be a completely different kind of horror movie," says Boone.

The film is set to hit cinemas in April 2017.
