Alice Braga plays the doctor and the film was directed by The Fault in Our Stars' Josh Boone.

20th Century Fox has released the first New Mutants teaser trailer!

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. The director made the announcement on Instagram and his caption promises that we're in for something very different from what the X-Men movies usually provide us with.

The last two years have seen Fox step out of their comfort zone and embrace a bold, experimental approach to X-Men movies.

If you are not familiar with New Mutants, then you should know the film will be a scarier one.

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. And like in many horror movies, they're simply trying to survive in a place that they flat out compare to a haunted house. Nor is there evidence of the Demon Bear from the comics that was reported to be the antagonist. Reports have suggested Fox is looking to make a younger mark on the X-Men franchise and put its new adolescent heroes in a horror scenario. That is, before the Demon Bear mauled its victims and all. Certainly, since there are exactly six months until New Mutants hits theaters, there's still plenty more to see in terms of a full trailer and the studio's major promotional push closer to the release date.
