The New Mutants has finally hit theaters but reviews on the film have not been in it’s favor. Multiple critics and journalists have not been kind to the last X-Men film in 20th Century’s vault, saying it’s the worst X-Men film in the franchise. It’s unfortunate because a lot of us have been waiting for three years for this film and it seems like it doesn’t deliver.
The film is tracking to make $7M-$10M on it’s domestic opening weekend. This isn’t too shocking when you realize we’re in a pandemic but it’s not looking so good for the studio.
Rotten Tomatoes has finally given it’s score for the film and it is not good.
