20th Century Fox has once again shuffled release dates for its upcoming movies, pushing X-Men: Dark Phoenix back to 2019 and delaying New Mutants further.

Fox recently revealed that they have Pushed back the release date for their latest X-men movie Dark Phoenix to 2019, moving it from the intital release which was set at 2 November 2018. In Dark Phoenix, Mystique, Beast, Storm, Nightcrawler and the rest of the X-Men spring into action when a malevolent, power-hungry force threatens to overtake Jean Grey’s mind. The movie stars Game Of Thrones’ Sophie Turner, Jennifer Lawrence, Ready Player One actor Tye Sheridan as well as Jessica Chastain & Michael Fassbender.

The release date for X-Men: Dark Phoenix is now set at February 14, 2019.


Fox have also pushed back New Mutants even more, a movie that was initially set to release April 13, 2018 but has undergone a complete alteration, including the addition of a new character who was not originally in the movie. Due to the mega-extended production, Fox have pushed the highly-anticipated movie back over a year to August 2, 2019.

The new X-Men movie New Mutants will be the eleventh movie in the franchise, and will explore a different direction and look to scare you.

Some interesting news about this horror movie came from IGN, where the director, Jason Boone, teased that this could be the first of a projected trilogy of X-Men horror movies. He told IGN: “We brought it to FOX as a trilogy of films, really all based on that long run by Sienkiewicz, and kind of incorporates some stuff from later issues in the ‘80s,”
