The much-talked about teaser trailer for THE NEW MUTANTS began showing on movie theater screens with Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok and it’s interesting to see how comic book fans and the general public are reacting to it.
During my screening, there was a lot of chatter. “This is a Marvel movie?” I heard one theatergoers say, among the plethora of whispers saying “Marvel” and “Huh?” throughout the crowd.
Director Josh Boone is taking things in a new direction with this X-Men film franchise spin-off. wile (for some) it’s an unexpected turn going the horror route, it’s something that seems to be piquing people’s interest. One thing’s for sure, this will not be your standard comic book movie.
Here are some reactions from folks on social media, both good and bad.
#NewMutants trailer got the most chatter at my Thor screening after Star Wars (which actually got an applause). “That’s a Marvel movie?”

Second time seeing #NewMutants trailer at the cinema, a woman behind me said “Jesus Christ,” so not sure if that was good or bad reaction. 😄

My theater had a trailer for #NewMutants and the general consensus was confusion. "Superhero Horror Film" might be a tough sell. I believe in you, marketing people!

My biggest ??? moment during Thor was the New Mutants trailer. The genre mashup is looking like an odd choice, but I have theories.
