Magik, Wolfsbane and other teenage mutants try to come to grips with their superpowers while staying at a secret facility.

So… Ahead of this shocking new trailer for yet another X-Men franchise movie from FOX, all I had heard was that Arya from Game of Thrones was going to be playing the little beast Wolfsbane and that one of the villains would be a giant demon bear. I was sold before this preview even aired and after watching said trailer, I’m still kind of stunned at how much of a straight up horror film it appears to be. This is an X-Men horror movie. This is exactly what they promised it would be and they delivered. HOW DARE THEY DELIVER UPON THEIR PROMISES! I didn’t catch the Demon Bear in this preview, but I still dig it nonetheless. The cast is amazing and loaded with extremely talented young actors and a director who knows what the hell he’s doing. Behold.
