Men 'Dark Phoenix' and 'New Mutants' movies held til 2019

28 March 2018

The New Mutants, another X-Men world film, has changed dates from February 22, 2019 to August 19, 2019.

Fox had big plans for the X-Men franchise in 2018, with the studio originally planning to release a triple-header in The New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Both comic book films are delayed until 2019, so "Bohemian Rhapsody", a biopic on the band Queen, can hit theaters on November 2 instead of its original December 25 opening date. Included among the casualties: Simon Kinberg's X-Men: Dark Phoenix (which we learned was being bumped to Valentine's Day of next year) and Josh Boone's long-in-the-works The New Mutants (now bumped, yet again, into next August).

This was the second major delay for New Mutants, which was originally supposed to bow in April 2018, and the first delay for X-Men: Dark Phoenix. In the movie, the X-Men are now national heroes.

This is the first time in the last 30 years of insurgency that a son of any top separatist leader has joined militancy. Junaid had gone missing from home on Friday, and his family had registered a missing report with police on Saturday.

In New Mutants, five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves. In this new date, Josh Boone's New Mutants will debut opposite Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer.

Some curious news broke recently regarding two of 20th Century Fox's upcoming superhero films. The source says a recent test screening for the film went well, although Fox reportedly wants it to be even scarier.

The Kid Who Would Be King from writer/director Joe Cornish was moved from February 14, 2019 to March 1, 2019. While this new release date still falls within the awards season window, it shows a lack of confidence in the movie's ability to compete during the holidays.

A new report from Variety, however, has revealed that 20th Century Fox has pushed back both movies, with both set to arrive in 2019 now. Studios shuffle release dates all the time, but these are two of Fox's most highly anticipated films on the docket, so many are rightly wondering exactly why these release dates are being pushed.
