20th Century Fox has just released the new poster for their upcoming superhero flick, The New Mutants. Of course, this isn’t your average ordinary superhero movie.

For this one, writer-director Josh Boone opted to go a more unique horror route, and this new poster certainly reflects that approach. Check it out down below!

This certainly seems to capture the essence of what that trailer was selling. In that trailer, we saw glimpses of this Nightmare on Elm Street aesthetic, and it looks like they’re certainly doubling down with their overall marketing.

The studio also released an interesting teaser. This one is mostly close-up on some snow, with a bear necklace off the side. Check it.

So what does this mean? Those who read the comics know this is an allusion to the Demon Bear, who breaks out of the mind of a character named Mirage to wreak havoc. What’s especially interesting is that Boone said he had no plans to actually have a Demon Bear, so this makes us wonder.

While the reaction to the film seemed to be decidedly mixed, based on the trailer, this is a bold new approach for the studio. Last year’s Deadpool and this year’s Logan really proved that Fox can go in completely unique directions with their properties, and that really seems to have emboldened Boone to tackled The New Mutants in an unexpected way.

The New Mutants stars Split‘s Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Stranger Things‘ Charlie Heaton as Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Mirage, and Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

The New Mutants is the first of a planned trilogy.
