Comic-Con At Home: New Mutants Gets New Trailer, Still No Surprise Streaming Release
Check out the opening sequence of the upcoming movie, along with some new posters.
While many were speculating that The New Mutants Comic-Con@Home panel would see the announcement of an early digital release, that wasn't the case. However, new footage of the movie has arrived to keep you prepared for a movie that was noted at the panel as coming out on August 28.
During the panel, the opening sequence for the movie was revealed, which showcases a young girl running for her life. This transitions into a more traditional trailer, which is full of horror elements, and a giant demon bear--and yes, that's in the comics. You can check out the video for yourself below.
There are new emojis on Twitter you can use while you wait for the late-August release date: #NewMutantsCannonball, #NewMutantsWolfsbane, NewMutantsSunspot, #NewMutantsMirage, and #NewMutantsMagik.
In addition, some new posters for the film have been revealed as well. Many of them pay homage to classic horror movies or feel like they come straight out of the '80s horror era. You can see a few of them below.
This panel was a late addition to Comic-Con@Home, with the announcement coming on July 16. Because of this, many people speculated that the film would be heading to VOD rather than being pushed back to a later date again, as the film was originally supposed to be released on April 13, 2018. Sadly, that wasn't the case. Since the original release date, it's received a staggering amount of delays due to Disney buying 20th Century Fox properties--which included this movie--avoiding conflicts with other movie release dates, and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic.
The New Mutants is "an original horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring," reads an official description. "When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive."
Directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), the movie stars Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Split), Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things), Blu Hunt (Another Life), Alice Braga (The Suicide Squad), and Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why).
While The New Mutants didn't get an early release, another highly-anticipated movie did. Earlier today, it was revealed that Bill & Ted: Face the Music would be headed to VOD on September 1, two days ahead of its SDCC panel.
