Disney Media Distribution has set a Nov. 17 home release date for The New Mutants, the 13th and final installment in 20th Century’s “X-Men” franchise.
The film, released theatrically in August despite many theaters still being closed, earned a domestic box office gross of just over $21 million.
The film will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray Disc and DVD, as well as through digital retailers.
The New Mutants focuses on five young people with special powers who are forced to undergo treatment at a secret institution — allegedly to cure them of the dangers of their powers. But it’s soon clear that their containment is part of a much bigger battle between the forces of good and evil.
The film was directed by Josh Boone from a screenplay he wrote with Knate Lee. The cast includes Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt and Henry Zaga.
Bonus features on the 4K Ultra HD and regular Blu-ray include:
- “Origins & Influences” — Legendary comic artist Bill Sienkiewicz and the filmmakers explore the origins and influences behind The New Mutants;
- “Meet the New Mutants” — Cast members share their experiences while filming and reveal how they bonded as a family, much like the characters in the film;
- Deleted scenes.
