20th Century Studios Releases New Synopsis for The New Mutants

Even though many fans are still skeptical about The New Mutants hitting the theaters, it seems that 20th Century Studios is still promoting the movie. And now, the studios’ official website has dropped a new — and long — synopsis for the upcoming movie. The official description confirms that one of the protagonists, Magik, is Colossus’ sister. Colossus has already made his appearance in his several X-Men movies, so could he pop up in this one as well?

The synopsis of The New Mutants reads:

“In this terrifying, action-fueled film based on the Marvel comic series, five young people who demonstrate special powers are brought to a secret institution to undergo treatments they are told will cure them of the dangers of their powers. Included are Danielle Moonstar aka Mirage (Blu Hunt), who creates illusions from other people’s fears; Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), who transforms into the werewolf Wolfsbane; Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton), who, as Cannonball, can fly at jet speeds protected by a force field; Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot (Henry Zaga), who absorbs and channels solar power; and Illyana Rasputin aka Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy).”

The synopsis goes on to add a few details about Magik. However, it does not specify which Colossus – X-Men‘s or Deadpool‘s, or someone else — this movie’s continuity will acknowledge. (Donald Mackinnon, Daniel Cudmore, and Stefan Kapičić have all portrayed different iterations of him onscreen.)

“The younger sister of Colossus, Magik becomes encased in armor at will and wields a soulsword that amplifies her multiple superhuman and psychic abilities. Invited by Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga) to share their stories about when their powers first manifested, the five “patients” come to understand that they are in a class of people called mutants, who have historically been marginalized and feared. As they relive their origin stories, their memories seem to turn into terrifying realities. Soon, they question what is real and what isn’t, and it becomes clear that the institution isn’t what it seems. Now the question is — why are they being held captive? And who is trying to destroy them? The tension and horror mount in this white-knuckle thrill ride directed by Josh Boone and co-written by Boone and Knate Lee.”

Currently, The New Mutants should debut on August 28, however, much depends upon whether theater chains will reopen their doors by then.
