For Real This Time: New Mutants Finally Gets New Release Date

THR reports that The New Mutants has finally been given a new release date after it was taken off the spring calendar due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The horror-tinged X-men spinoff will hit theaters Aug. 28, Disney announced Wednesday. The studio inherited the film upon acquiring 20th Century Fox.

Disney on Wednesday made several other updates to its release slate, including moving 20th Century and Locksmith’s animated film Ron’s Gone Wrong from Feb. 26, 2021, to April 23, 2021.

The New Mutants has had a long and winding road to release, prompting intense speculation that the pic would bypass theaters and go directly to streaming. The Hollywood Reporter noted last week that wasn’t the case.
