‘New Mutants’ Release Date Moved to 2019

by Nick Banks

If you were looking forward to seeing Marvel’s New Mutants this April, I hope you can open a portal to the future like the young magic-user Illyanna Rasputin.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Josh Boone’s film is moving from April 13, 2018 to Feb. 22, 2019.    Supposedly, “Insiders say one reason for the change is for the studio to avoid having an overlap with X-Men movies in certain overseas marketplaces, where Mutants and Deadpool 2 would have been in theaters at the same time.”

Moving New Mutants into 2019 also reduces the number of X-Men properties released this year from three to two (Deadpool and X-Men: Dark Phoenix).  Deadpool 2 will also move up two weeks on the calendar from June 1 to May 18, providing some stiff competition for Avengers: Infinity War as well as putting “… the action comedy against Sony’s Slender Man but, more importantly, has it opening one week before Disney’s Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

And last but not least, everyone’s favorite card-slinging cajun has also experienced some new turmoil as “Gambit is seeing its release date move from Feb. 14, 2019, to June 7, 2019. The Channing Tatum vehicle just lost its director  — Gore Verbinski exited Thursday — and the search is on for a replacement.”
