The New Mutants Has A New Release Date... Again!

While it was originally unclear what Disney would do with The New Mutants, it was given a release date for last month.

Disney recently announced that the X-Men spinoff film will be released in theatres on 28 August, according to Deadline. The horror-tinged outing from director Josh Boone concerns a new generation of mutants being held at a secret facility.

Twitter, though, is having a field day because the original release date for this movie was in April of 2018!

The coronavirus pandemic has complicated what was already a tricky situation for the movie, which has been pushed back five times - some for planned reshoots - with Wednesday's announcement.

It's tempting to interpret all this as being indicative of THE NEW MUTANTS' quality, but we're not entirely sure that's the case! Now Disney, who inherited the film in the Fox buyout, has announced that the movie has been pushed again to August 28, 2020. Three months from now will be the end of August, so The New Mutants is aiming to be there to greet audiences with open arms. As per news reports, Disney had announced the new release dates for films like Mulan and Black Widow. Armed with a dark spin on the typical superhero formula, the cast includes Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), and Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) - an exciting ensemble of young actors who have gotten significantly less young since production wrapped.
