As far as movie marketing goes, horror fans know that today, Friday the 13th, is strictly reserved for promoting frightening films.

The X-Men cinematic universe isn't known for its scares (save for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but that's another story for another day), but with The New Mutants, director Josh Boone is about to steer Fox's mutant juggernaut into relatively uncharted, and very dark territory. "We're trying to do something very, very different".

"Whilst it's definitely a departure from the X-Men movies, the fans won't be disappointed".

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.

Now that Fox has debuted the first look at New Mutants fans and casual moviegoers alike may have a better idea of what to expect from this particular X-Men spinoff. 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.

Opening April 13, 2018, The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Wolfsbane, Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why) as Sunspot, Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) as Cannonball, Anya Taylor-Joy (Atlantis) as Magik, Blu Hunt (The Originals) as Danielle Moonstar and Alice Braga (Queen of the South) as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

New Mutants now has a 3.55 out of 5 ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating, making it the seventeenth most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com readers.
