'New Mutants' Director Unveils Bloody First Logo

Director Josh Boone announces that they've entered into the final week of shooting when he offers a first glimpse of the upcoming movie's first logo.

AceShowbiz - "X-Men: The New Mutants" is close to wrapping production. Director Josh Boone has taken to his Instagram account to announce that they've entered into the final week of shooting while providing a first glimpse of the upcoming movie's bloody first logo. But it's still unclear if this will be the final title treatment.

The black-and-white logo featured in the clapperboard is a throwback to classic "X-Men" lettering. It simply reads "The New Mutants" in block letters and there is a bit of color to it. Judging by the giant blood stained splattered across the logo, it seems like Boone was not exaggerating when he said before that the upcoming "X-Men" spin-off would be a "full-fledged horror movie."

Besides the bloody first logo, another interesting detail is featured in the clapperboard. There's a lone figure standing in a snowy landscape under the night sky, with his/her back turned to onlookers. There is also a trail of blood behind the person.
