Watch the Opening Scene for The New Mutants From Comic-Con @Home

The New Mutants didn’t want to hold anything back. Even it meant all the Comic-Con attendees are at home watching the virtual panel.

San Diego Comic-Con International hosted the virtual panel after the Covid-19 pandemic canceled the convention for 240,000 attendees and the Hall H experience. Twentieth Century Studios wanted to reveal the X-Men off-shoot film after years of postponed release dates, in which they mocked themselves in this opening video of the panel presentation.

The guests that joined the panel included writer/director Josh Boone, Maisie Williams (Rahne Sinclaire/Wolfsbane), Anya Taylor-Joy (Illyana Rasputin/Magik), Charlie Heaton (Sam Guthrie/Cannonball), Alice Braga (Dr. Cecilia Reyes), Blu Hunt (Danielle Moonstar/Mirage), and Henry Zaga (Roberto da Costa/Sunspot).

During the presentation, they announced a unique Bill Sienkiewicz poster and fan posters for The New Mutants and exclusive Twitter emojis of the X-Men characters.

Here’s the brief synopsis of the film:

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. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try to make it out alive.

Towards the end of the panel presentation video, Fox released the first few minutes opening scene of Danielle Moonstar/Mirage escaping an apparent ambush by unknown forces. A new trailer followed that showcased each of the mutants’ powers with the mysterious adversaries of faceless people.

Crossing their fingers, the studio announced a theatrical release date of August 28 of this year. It’s very ambitious considering other studios announced the indefinite delay of Tenant, Mulan, Avatar 2, and pushed Top Gun and A Quiet Place 2 into next year.

Watch the full presentation below. If you need to skip to the opening scene and trailer, it is at the 24:15 minute mark of the presentation. Also, do check out the posters and emojis to let us know what you think.
