It seems that X-Men: The New Mutants will finally be getting a cinema release after all, with a new August release date for the film announced.
Well, this has been a bit of a rollercoaster. X-Men: The New Mutants, as you likely know, finished filming in 2017, back when 20th Century Fox was owned by, well, Fox. The plan was then for substantive reshoots that never happened, and several times a release date for the movie has been announced, only for that date to be delayed.
Then, of course, Disney bought up Fox, and finally was set to put the movie in cinemas in April. Then the global lockdown happened, cinemas closed, and the film was taken off the schedules with no new date revealed. Then, in a further twist to the saga, the film appeared for preorder on demand a week or two back, suggesting that it was skipping cinemas altogether.
But! That turned out to be an algorithm error, those preorders were cancelled, and out of the blue, a new release date has now been announced for the movie.
We’ve lost count as to how many dates it’s had, but you can now expect to see X-Men: The New Mutants in cinemas – assuming they’re open – on August 28th 2020. This was announced at the American release date for the film, and we’ve now got confirmation too that that’s when the movie will arrive in the UK.
Of course, few films know as well that things can change very quickly. But for the minute, that’s the latest date to add to your diary, if you’re one of the many looking forward to director Josh Boone’s film.
Best write it in pencil, though…
