A new teaser trailer has arrived in time for an upcoming The New Mutants Comic-Con event.

While connected to the X-Men universe, this one’s set to take more of a horror-tinged turn, based in a psychiatric hospital where a collection of mutants are being monitored.

Director Josh Boone and cast members are set to take part in a Comic-Con at Home event next week, scheduled for July 23 at 2pm PT, which, if our calculations are correct, will be 7am on July 24 in AEST.

The latest cinema date for The New Mutants – overseas, at least – is August 28.
