‘New Mutants’ and ‘Antlers’ Moved Off Release Schedule

Similar to Paramount’s decision to shift A Quiet Place II to a later date in 2020, Disney followed suit by moving New Mutants, Antlers, and Mulan off of their scheduled release dates.  No new dates have been announced as of yet, but according to Deadline, Disney is “…looking at potential 2020 dates in regards to where the titles would be scheduled next.”

Although these concerns are explicitly related to Coronavirus fears, this will be the fourth time that New Mutants will shift to a new date.  Previously, the film was scheduled to screen on January 11, 2018, March 27, 2018, May 7, 2019, and March 12, 2020.   Antlers was originally scheduled to be released on April 17.

Three new films will be released today including Bloodshot, the also previously delayed The Hunt, and the romantic musical I Still Believe.  After this weekend, the next film to get a wide release will be Saint Maud (which was moved back one week) and Trolls World Tour on April 10, nearly a month away.

Although box office figures and attendance will certainly suffer over the next few weeks (months), films currently in theaters such as The Invisible Man should continue to earn dollars due to a distinct lack of competition.

Check back on Sunday for HNN’s box office report on the fate of Bloodshot and The Hunt.
