20th Century Studios Still Planning Theatrical Release for ‘The New Mutants’

As a horror fan who also grew up reading comics, it’s been excruciating waiting for the release of The New Mutants, the adaptation of the popular Marvel comic book that was directed by Josh Boone a few years back.

After a handful of delays, the horror-tinged X-Men spinoff was finally slated to hit theaters this past April, at least before the pandemic forced the newly-renamed 20th Century Studios to delay it indefinitely.

The immediate outcry was for Disney to just rip the bandaid off and release the film on specialty VOD alongside either of their Hulu or Disney+ services. Last week, Amazon sent fans into a frenzy when they listed a preorder link, which was picked up by several major outlets and reported as “official”.

While Bloody Disgusting awaited confirmation, the link was removed, leaving the release in question once again. Was this a mistake that revealed Disney’s plans or was it an accident completely?

“The PVOD preorder listing was apparently a mistake, with Amazon’s system automatically including it based on the film’s previous April release date pre-pandemic shutdown,” explained THR in their Heat Vision newsletter.

According to their sources, “the long-delayed X-Men film is still planned for a theatrical release.”

It’s awesome to know Disney/20th Century Studios has this much confidence in their horror-themed comic book film, but the wait is getting borderline ridiculous. Let’s just hope that the product ends up being worth the wait. Give us Demon Bear!

In the film, “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 mutants include Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin, also known as Magik; Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie, a.k.a. Cannonball; Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair, a.k.a. Wolfsbane; Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa a.k.a Sunspot, a mutant with the ability to absorb and channel solar power; and Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, the Native American telepath also known as “Mirage”.

Alice Braga also stars as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself but also has more going on than she lets on.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
