It’s been a long road but the day is finally here!
After a few bumps in production and numerous delays, Josh Boone’s The New Mutants will now make its way to theaters. Aside from getting to see the thrilling horror superhero movie, the director teased the extras to look forward to when the movie hits Blu-ray and DVD this fall.
Speaking with ComicBookMovie.com, Boone talks about the funny moments that didn’t make the cut as well as an interview with New Mutants comic artist. "Instead of the typical scene-specific audio commentary, I did sort of a career retrospective interview with Bill Sienkiewicz to talk about his time working for Marvel and DC and all the other work he’s done over the years,” he said.
“We also have a cool selection of deleted scenes that were either too funny or not tonally right for the cut,” Boone added. These “wink-y, gag stuff” was left out for “fun things” that fans can enjoy. In addition, there will also be other behind-the-scenes stuff that Boone can’t talk about just yet, “but it was really fun to sit down with Bill and learn about his life and his work."
It's no surprise that the film will get plenty of never-before-seen footage, considering what The New Mutants went through during the Disney/Fox merger, not being able to do reshoots for pickups. It’s also exciting to get an interview with Sienkiewicz, especially since the movie was heavily influenced by the artist’s version of the team.
The New Mutants is now out in the US and is set for release on September 4 in the UK.
