20th Century Fox officially updated their website and poster for THE NEW MUTANTS today, reflecting the film’s new release date of February 22, 2019. After news of the change came, fans were understandably upset. Director Josh Boone’s horror spinoff based in the X-Men universe was allegedly pushed back due to the film overlapping with DEADPOOL 2 (which was moved forward to May 18, 2018) in international markets; rumors also suggest the studio may be doing reshoots to make the film scarier after feedback from successful test screenings. Either way, the fans have a lot to say about this.
I’m actually ok w #NewMutants delayed release; yes,it will be frustrating to wait, but it gives more time for focus & planning, esp. w the merger/consolidation. Everyone I’m working w at #Fox is a fan of characters & films on their roster. More time to get excited & do cool stuff https://t.co/It8LQIyOsF

https://t.co/VgR0w8hSZG#Deadpool2 date change could be beneficial & #Gambit looks like the kid everyone keeps pushing around but #NewMutants move is a little worrying, more scary? Comic book movie with horror elements is good, just bcoz #ITMovie was scary, now we copy it?

Come on New Mutants! I want you to come on this year. I don't wanna wait a whole year long because FOX for some reason push Deadpool 2 a few months up! That's so unfair! Here is my 5 words for high school. Stick it to the man!

Release date pushed back to February 22, 2019?! Not cool! I was so looking forward to seeing Alice Braga in a new role! February is the graveyard of new movie releases! Rude! Clearly, @deadpoolmovie is afraid of the new mutants and the doctor (who is secretly a Queenpin)! *cough*

When FOX changes a movie 3 months away from release to nearly a year with promised trailers. How are they going to rebuild the hype? What's wrong with them? pic.twitter.com/W1J1khpj5R

As much as i want to see Deadpool 2 as soon as possible i think delaying New Mutants for almost a year is a terrible idea because if the movie is starting marketing why delay it https://t.co/ndxNreHYFp
