The New Mutants Trilogy

It’s been a long road for the X-Men spin-off The New Mutants to make it to theaters. One of the biggest hold-ups came when 20th Century Fox was purchased by The Walt Disney Company, leaving the studio’s future theatrical releases with an uncertain future. Disney still intends to release the movie in theaters this year, but it’s anticipated to be the last remnant of Fox’s X-Men franchise. Even so, director Josh Boone is hoping the movie will be successful enough for Disney to let him complete a trilogy. Read More »

The New Mutants release date

For director Josh Boone and all the people involved with Fox’s superhero film The New Mutants, the past few years must have felt like they were caught in an episode of The Twilight Zone. The same cycle has occurred over and over again: a new release date for the film is announced, a flurry of marketing materials is released, and then, inevitably, the date is pushed back for one reason or another.

Now the cycle is beginning again: a new theatrical release date for the movie has been announced. Will it actually happen this time?

new mutants sequel

The New Mutants is finally about to hit theaters (unless the coronavirus changes that), and a long time ago, it was supposed to be the first in a proposed trilogy. That all changed when Disney acquired 20th Century Fox and turned it into 20th Century Studios. Now, New Mutants is likely to be a standalone film – but had the trilogy plan remained intact, a post-credit scene was going to be included featuring Antonio Banderas as villain Emmanuel da Costa.

New Mutants Reshoots

It’s been a long road for The New Mutants to arrive in movie theaters. Originally intended for release back in April of 2018, the film has been delayed several times since then.

But director Josh Boone has finally spoken up to clear the air, saying that no reshoots were ever completed. Read More »

A Quiet Place 2 rating

The lords and ladies of the mysterious MPAA have emerged from their castle on high to peer down and toss a pair of ratings to two upcoming movies. (I’m pretty sure that’s how the rating system works. Don’t fact check that.) 20th Century Studios’ long-delayed X-Men film The New Mutants and Paramount’s horror sequel A Quiet Place Part II have now both officially received PG-13 ratings, so you scheming youngsters out there can breathe a sigh of relief and scrap your plans to sneak in after buying tickets to Onward.

Word on the street is that The New Mutants is finally coming out – but we still have our doubts. Can you blame us? We’ve been here before – the film has had its release date shuffled around more times than we can count. And sure, there’s marketing material stating left and right that New Mutants is opening in April. But there was marketing material claiming it was opening on those previous dates, too. Still – the movie’s April 2020 release date hasn’t shifted yet, so I guess we can all relax and assume this time things will be different. To help bolster confidence in this, several new New Mutants images have found their way online, featuring those New Mutants in all their grungy glory.

If you were hoping The New Mutants was going to follow the recent trend of R-rated superhero flicks, we have some bad news. According to director Josh Boone, the long-delayed film is cruising for a PG-13 rating – and that was always the plan. The dark, horror-movie vibe the first trailer threw off made several viewers jump to the conclusion that the flick was headed for a more adult rating, but that was never the case. Or so they say.
