'The New Mutants' Still Set For August 28th Theater Release

'The New Mutants' Still Set For August 28th Theater Release


Outsiders - August 11, 2020
Variety has confirmed from sources that the Disney and Fox's superhero thriller, 'The New Mutants' will finally see an official theater release on August 28th. Tickets go on sale on August 18th.

Disney has been bouncing the release for the movie since 2018 and it was expected the company would continue to postpone it or export the film to Disney Plus or Hulu. The movie was originally under 20th Century Fox, but went through numerous reshoots which changed the movies release date five times.

“It’s for sure opening August 28th!” one exhibitor wrote to Variety.

'The New Mutants' will be the first new theatrical release from a major studio since the pandemic forced U.S. cinemas to close in March. Check to see if your local theater has reopened and will be showing the movie as only 1,309 of the 6,021 venues in the country have reopened, according to Comscore. This includes movie theaters in New York City and Los Angeles, which are still closed without a set date to reopen.

Directed by Josh Boone, 'The New Mutants' features an ensemble cast — including Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy and newcomer Blu Hunt — as young mutants trapped in a secret facility against their will. The movie is expected to be the final entry in the “X-Men” franchise, the 13-film series that stretched from 2000’s “X-Men” to 2019’s “Dark Phoenix.”

The movie opened to 3.1 million on Friday showing in 2,412 theaters across the country. The movie is expected to make around might do it more good than harm. With so few new movies currently out there isnt much competition and those willing to go to a theater might be more willing to see it just cause its something new to watch.

That's true, sadly most cinemas seem to be favouring Tenet over here.

Are you implying no one has seen it or that it's a bad movie?  

Even had there been no  virus outbreak, I really doubt that theatres woulda been jammed packed to capacity for this movie. I'll be really shocked if it even breaks even $$ wise. Like I said, I'll give it a Redbox rental in a couple of weeks with my 75 cents off promo Code.

I doubt its great, but its probably  not gonna be "the worst thing ever" either.  Unfortunately the internet's proclivity for hyperbole means nothing can just be "okay", everything has to be good or bad.   I'm guessing if you keep expectations low it might be enjoyable.  Although if you are in the U.S. i really question the wisdom of going to movie theaters right now.  I guess during a weekday when its empty might be OK, but i'm not gonna risk that when i can just wait and view it on demand or streaming later.

I knew the critics would blast it, but I also don't care, I don't care about critics,, I did hear a few people saying they saw it and it was really good and did the comics justice, the characters were well portrayed etc, still on board for this movie, in theatres maybe it's to soon, at my house 100%

Reviews are destroying this film to the surprise of no one. I know the Fox x Universe has its fans but maybe consider that Disney / MCU could do amazing things with the Xmen. Fox clearly was throwing everything at the wall...

Haven't seen any official reviews yet, which is never a good sign.

The New Mutants 8.5/10I loved this movie. Probably my third or 4th favorite X-men movie after Logan, X2 and DPOF. The actors and writers nailed the characters. The story was a pretty good adaptation of New Mutants(1st series) issues 18 and 19 which were two of my favorites growing up. So I am probably rating it higher than most would. The cinematography and music(they used the Mats' Bastards Of the Young!) were good as well. Magik was so bad *** and her look, attitude and power set were spot on.The stuff I'll nitpick:It wasn't as scary as I wanted it/ thought it would be. The run time was shorter than I would have liked. There were a couple cheesy parts/parts where the acting could have been a little better. There will most likely be no sequel in what could have been a great trilogy if Disney hadn't bought Fox.I will buy this movie on 4K when it comes out.
