WTF, am I right?
Back in December, we were all calling The New Mutants on of the “Most Anticipated” horror movies of 2018, as it was set for release in April. Then in January, the film was delayed for almost an entire year, bumped all the way back to February 2019. We’re getting word now, however, that The New Mutants is getting another huge delay with a new release date set for August 2nd, 2019.

This could be due to the fact that the studio isn’t happy with the direction of the film, which has been promoted as a hard PG-13 horror movie, despite being a spinoff of the X-Men Universe. We’ve also heard rumors that new characters are being added to the film, which centers on young mutants confined to a mental asylum.
The news came with other release dates distributed by 20th Century Fox (above). It’ll be a long wait, horror fans, but we can still enjoy the trailer and synopsis below.
Official Synopsis: Magik, Wolfsbane and other teenage mutants try to come to grips with their superpowers while staying at a secret facility.
The New Mutants is written and directed by Josh Boone and stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, and Alice Braga.
