The ‘New Mutants‘ film has been a mess of a project since the beginning. The movie, which Disney inherited from Fox, was originally set to be released back in 2018.
But there have been numerous setbacks, and just when it was finally set to release in April, the coronavirus pandemic happened.
Disney removed it from their schedule in March, due to the pandemic, and fans were wondering if that was the final nail in the coffin for the film. Would it simply be released on demand sometime in the future?
Well, it looks like the answer is no. Disney is still planning a theatrical release. According to the latest report, the ‘X-Men’ superhero adventure film is set to hit theaters on August 28, 2020.
It’s a bold move. There is still some uncertainty surrounding the movie theater industry right now. While some states have allowed theaters to reopen, the bigger markets (like LA and NYC) are still closed.
Will they be open by August? We’ll just have to see how this virus plays out. It’s been a bit unpredictable.
For now, you can watch the trailer for ‘New Mutants’ starring Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy and Charlie Heaton.
