X-MEN: NEW MUTANTS Wraps Production

The latest installment of Fox’s X-Men franchise, The New Mutants, has wrapped production.

Director Josh Boone posted the news on Instagram this weekend, which was followed by a stream of other posts from the cast.

This installment, which will be the first of three X-Men related films we will get next year, has been touted as more of horror film with superpowers, but no supervillain and no costumes.

While there has been no mention of it in any of the news about the film so far, I have to wonder if New Mutant‘s production budget is on the lower side for what we see in comic book films. Deadpool was shot on a budget of $58 million and certainly showed Fox that a smaller budgeted can still bring a blockbuster return at the box office. Horror films in general are low cost affairs shot quickly. And that certainly be a way for Fox to exploit more of their X-Men IP without the higher cost of normally associated with these types of films.

X-Men: New Mutants is scheduled for a April 13, 2018
