According to the image, the trailer will be released at 12:01 A.M. PST on Friday, October 13. Which oddly applies to Josh Boone's X-Men film, The New Mutants, as you can clearly see in the first trailer below - which just dropped on the very first minute of this fateful day.

The film version directed by Josh Boone sets "The New Mutants" against the backdrop of a mental institution where the coming-of-age mutants are being held captive as they fight back to gain their freedom. 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. True to the advance word on the film, you won't find any costumes here, nor any familiar X-Men. The studio initially kicked off their mutant superhero franchise with Bryan Singer's X-Men in 2000, which was followed by two more films in the original trilogy before X-Men: First Class rebooted the franchise and X-Men: Days of Future Past rewrote the timeline.

The New Mutants adapts the monthly comic book series of the same name that launched in 1982. The five main characters in New Mutants are Danielle Moonstar aka Mirage (Blu Hunt), Illyana Rasputin aka Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy), Rahne Sinclair aka Wolfsbane (Maisie Williams), Sam Guthrie aka Cannonball (Charlie Heaton), and Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot (Henry Zaga). Little is known about the film as of yet, but fans do know it will see a group of mutants forced into a secret facility.
