Since the teaser trailer for New Mutants is arriving on Friday the 13th, it seems like they are leaning pretty heavily into that idea. "We're trying to do something very, very different", Josh told EW. The creator simply posts a picture of the film's logo along with the time "12:01 AM PST" in order to get fans excited for his Marvel adaptation.
"Whilst it's definitely a departure from the X-Men movies, the fans won't be disappointed".
Filming on New Mutants wrapped earlier this fall, so it was only a matter of time until the film's first trailer dropped.
Held in a secret facility against their will, five new mutants have to battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past. Along with the image, he included the phrase "There's something new to fear", which adds to the assertion that the X-Men spin-off will be more like a horror movie than a standard superhero film. The team will be challenged by the terrifying threat of the Demon Bear, the creature that has stalked Danielle's family for years. Certainly, since there are exactly six months until New Mutants hits theaters, there's still plenty more to see in terms of a full trailer and the studio's major promotional push closer to the release date.
