    Default No one commenting on the New Mutants being pushed back?

    So New Mutants was supposed to come out April 13, but it got pushed back to Feb. 2019 for reshoots. Then X-Men: Dark Phoenix was pushed back from November 2018 to Feb 2019, and now New Mutants is delayed until August of 2019, a year and a half after its scheduled release date.

    Anyone think this is a big red flag for the New Mutants movie? That's twice it's been pushed back...I was looking forward to it, but this does not bode well.

    Eh that preview did look pretty bad. Couldn't tell if it was supposed to be a horror movie or what.

    The preview looked fantastic. It is absolutely a horror movie. Nothing wrong with that.

    It was recently delayed a second time though. This is new news.

    What's there to say?

    I want to see the movie, but at this point, Fox doesn't know what they're doing and when Disney gets the mutants back, we'll have a reboot.

    So hopefully we'll have a good single movie...eventually.

    It's certainly not a good sign. And if it amounts to a LOT of rebooting, it means the movie will need to do better at the box office to make a profit.

    I wonder if this translates to a chgange in direction from a horror flick to super hero flick, or if it just means they weren't happy with what they got so far.

    Yea this makes no real sense to me. Both movies had and still have plenty of time and werent rushed. Maybe these movies are disasters and that why..But I have no real.speculation on why the serious delays.

    Maybe Disney has some influence here but i doubt it. Fox has to keep doing business as usual until something is final.

    I read that they added a completely new character and are re-shooting half or more of the movie.

    This looked like a small Horror movie, spook house with muatants. I was diggin it. heavy reshoots seem unnecessary and risky by upping the budget and requiring it to do better.

    Also they had a trailer in theaters back in November lol so these reshoots seem more worrysome because they thought they had something at some point. They delay it too long and the Disney deal happens this movie may never come out.

    More studio meddling. I guess we'll never know what the original movie was going to look like now.

    I thought the horror story angle was different and cool. Was looking forward to it. All in all, i'm more worried about the Dark Phoenix movie than the New Mutants. Everything i've read about the Dark Phoenix movie so far screams crap show. I would like that movie to be good.

    Yeah, that's the thing... major results are risky and expensive. Everyone does results to some degree, but as we've seen with FF and JL it also creates a potentially bad narrative leading into the movie. You probably don't wanna do mahor reshootd unless you think you've got a legit bomb on your hands.
