The New Mutants Gets A New Release Date In August
We’ve spilled a lot of bytes – via all of our sister blog sites – about Marvel’s The New Mutants.
But, despite all those words, basically, we’ve all been waiting to watch the dang thing.
Today, the official TNM Twitter account (which hadn’t posted since March 12) said, “we’re back”.

However, “we’re back” means this Marvel movie is back on the release package.
The last of Marvel’s original Fox-born movies, The New Mutants has waited (waded) through several delays via various causes.
The much-delayed former Fox/Marvel The New Mutants is not going to Disney+ or Hulu, and remains on track for a theatrical release, now set for Aug. 28 this year. New Mutants stands alone as the only wide entry on the pre-Labor Day weekend frame.
The pic’s history of release dates include April 13, 2018; Feb. 22, 2019; Aug. 2, 2019; and previously April 3 of this year. How old is New Mutants? Old Fox first dropped a trailer for the Josh Boone-directed movie at CinemaCon 2017. Even though there were rumors that New Mutants would head to Hulu pre-Fox merger, Disney has remained committed to the pic’s theatrical release.
New Mutants stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga and Alice Braga. Logline reads as follows: Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.
The saga of The New Mutants is long and winding. And just one of the blog posts I’ve curated about TNM spoke to a possible jump to digital.
But now we know where they are. In lockdown like the rest of us.
Funny (?), that’s exactly what the movie is about!
Check out, what I think, is the latest sneak peek at the picture.
Of course, make sure to ignore the April three release date. We’re waiting until late summer for this one.
