Men: Dark Phoenix and New Mutants get release date delays

Posted March 28, 2018

New Mutants, another film in Fox's X-Men series from director Josh Boone and starring Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, and Alice Braga, has been pushed back from its February 22, 2019 release date and will now arrive on August 2, 2019.

The New Mutants, on the other hand, is expected to make room for an additional character (Warlock, we assume), all the while doubling down on the horror elements that help separate Josh Boone's spinoff from the pack.

The film also became the fifth highest-grossing movie ever in the United States (again, not adjusted for inflation). Especially since the film will still be in theaters once Avengers: Infinity War releases on April 27.

Fox's claims that the reasons for moving X-MEN DARK PHOENIX is because they wanted to move up the Freddie Mercury biopic BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY to X-Men's original November 2018 release date. It takes over the release date from Dark Phoenix, which has moved to February 14, 2019, where it will open against Paramount's Mark Wahlberg-Rose Byrne comedy Instant Family. Dark Phoenix is the fourth movie in the second set of X-Men films that include First Class, Days of Futures Past and Apocalypse.

After testing the film, 20th Century Fox has elected to bring the film back into production ahead of its release.

Dropbox's IPO Debuts at $29 a Share
The company was hacked in 2012, and more than 68 million users' emails and passwords were leaked on the internet four years later. The regulatory filing Dropbox submitted for its IPO showed that the company had more than 11 million paying users.

It is written by Kinberg, based on Josh Byrne, Chris Claremont, and Dave Cockrum's The Dark Phoenix Saga story published by Marvel Comics. Now, thanks to the latest release date shuffle from 20 Century Fox, we're down to just Deadpool 2. If the merger clears federal regulatory hurdles, Fox could be folded into the Disney empire by early 2019 - right when Dark Phoenix is now slated to arrive.

Back in February, Maisie Williams, who stars in the X-Men spin-off as Rahne Sinclair (AKA Wolfsbane), told ScreenRant the rumours of reshoots were totally false. This doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in the movie for me.

ComicBook.com has learned that Dark Phoenix's release date is changing as a result of a decision Fox made to rework portions of the film following test screenings.
