"We can get out of this!" Fox has debuted a short new Comic-Con promo trailer for The New Mutants, the sort-of X-Men spin-off movie. After years of delays, they've announced a presentation as part of "Comic-Con At Home" (since the real show was cancelled). And rumors are they might just released it streaming right after the panel. Five young mutants, discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves. The first teaser trailer debuted in 2017, it was set to open in 2018, but after extensive reshoots and retooling (and Fox being bought by Disney) they've made an entirely new movie which might finally be released this year. Who knows? Starring Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, Charlie Heaton as Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Mirage; with Alice Braga and Happy Anderson. That end shot with Magik is the coolest scene.
Here's the new Comic-Con promo trailer for Josh Boone's The New Mutants, direct from Fox's YouTube:
You can still find the original teaser trailer for The New Mutants here, and this year's new trailer right here.
An original horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring. 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. The New Mutant is directed by American filmmaker Josh Boone, of Stuck in Love and The Fault in Our Stars previously. The screenplay is written by Josh Boone & Knate Lee. Produced by Simon Kinberg, Karen Rosenfelt, Lauren Shuler Donner. Based on the "New Mutants" comic series published from 1981 to 1993 by Marvel. Fox still has The New Mutants scheduled to open in theaters starting on August 28th. But it may go direct-to-VOD. Still excited?
Yeah, I could watch this. It probaby won't be too spectacular storywise, but it might be a good evening fun ...

Yeah, no reason it has not been released yet three years after it was completed, Right? Herpa derp derp!

Yeah, I know all that (and I've seen all the trailers during those years). So? It's mindless fun, I'm not really expecting something great (unless there's some hidden surprise). But I like the franchise so I'll give it a go (with few beers and probably with some friends, so it might be fun evening despite everything). As for your offensive comment on the end, come on, get some manners, the school is over ...

The "Reason" firstly was that they were dickering over making it a movie or a TV show . Prob to go to Hulu , since Netflix already had several shows ... Then Marvel/Disney recently made a commitment to having a "Horror genre" of CB movies , as well as planning their Own platform to put it on ....so NOW it was retooled to emphasize the horror aspects and re-produced as a movie ..

Thanks for info. Of course, I was aware that some of that stuff was happening, but wasn't really interested in following it. But it's not hard to imagine that the end product will be at least some standard mess. I don't expect much more. And it probably deserves less attention then we are showing here. Anyway, thanks again for you effort. Cheers ...

well the decision to launch a whole genre of Horror Comics Marvel movies is an interesting one . If either the pandemic eases or it goes over well in Streaming . So having a bunch of teens/20-somethings as the lead group in the genre means they should have quite a few years of movies to script around them There was a version of " The New Mutants " on Fox , in 2019 , but with 30-year olds . Prob held up on production , for a new season ...

It seems like you really follow all that. Cool. I mean, I see some of those stories in places and for some time I gave up following many of them. And of course, there are also many other projects around and obviously I don't have really wish to follow all of them. I mostly wait for the end products. But it does sounds interesting what you say. I'm just not sure how long such production will endure. Hopefully, long enough. I mostly liked the movies, no matter how uneven they are. So, will wait for anything that comes after ... Cheers ... And thank for you effort again ...

The Old Failure

Tired of mutants. The quality again slipping after the successful reboot with First Class. Not sure I can muster the energy again, bit like Terminator and Star Wars.

"Not sure I can muster the energy again..." The energy to do what? Sit and watch a movie? Good lord...

Bit over dramatic? The energy to become involved in a franchise again when it doesn't look great. Plenty of better quality looking films out there.
Lewis on Oct 26, 2020
I'll watch it because of the drama surrounding it. Going in with the lowest of expectations which may make it tolerable.
