The New Mutants director Josh Boone has confirmed that the film will be getting a new trailer next week.
One of the strangest cases in Hollywood’s golden age of super-hero movies is what happened to Fox’s The New Mutants. Directed by a hot-shot indie director Josh Boone who had a vision of marrying the genre with horror elements, The New Mutants began filming in 2017, with the first teaser trailer dropping that very year. At that point, The New Mutants was set to drop in 2018.
Reports of reshoots plagued The New Mutants, citing that film was going back to the drawing board to become more scarier and define itself. Unfortunately, no one knew if the reshoots were needed, as director Josh Boone remained mum. And as everyone knows, Fox was then purchased by Disney, leaving the fate of The New Mutants in uncertainty. Many believed that The New Mutants would never see the light of day, while others rationed that the X-Men spin-off would quietly be dumped on Disney Plus.
However, none of those worst to worst come scenarios seem to have come true as we finally have an update on The New Mutants from the director himself! Taking to Instagram, director Josh Boone confirmed that a brand new The New Mutants trailer will drop on January 6th.
The most warming part of this post is that Josh Boone states that The New Mutants trailer is supervised by himself and co-writer Knate Lee, which means that the film more than likely wasn’t ripped out of their hands. In fact, this hopefully proves that Fox (now under Disney) is pleased with the reshoots that have taken place and have full faith in the film… hopefully. The New Mutants trailer will be the first batch of footage we’ve seen from the film in three years.

The film is directed by Josh Boone and produced by Simon Kinberg, Karen Rosenfelt, and Lauren Shuler Donner, with a screenplay by Boone and Knate Lee. It is also the last X-Men movie produced by 20th Century Fox, as Marvel Studios are working on integrating Mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
