'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' To Undergo Significant Reshoots Following Delay

That wouldn't leave enough time to finish the effects work to meet the original November release date.

If you're waiting on a new X-Men movie outside of Deadpool 2, you're going to be waiting quite a bit longer.

There had been rumors that FOX ordered reshoots and edits for New Mutants to make it a scarier movie than when the film was first scheduled for release.

The New Mutants, directed by Josh Boone, was scheduled for a February 22, 2019 release but now it will come out on August 2, 2019. It is set ten years after X-Men: Apocalypse. As for New Mutants, Collider reports at least 50 percent of the movie will be reshot in order to make it scary and add one or two more characters.

Dark Phoenix writer/director Simon Kinberg previously said that filming ended in October 2017. James McAvoy called the project "probably the most emotional X-Men we've done".




Bohemian Rhapsody is taking the release date that was previously held by mainline X-Men series sequel Dark Phoenix which has been delayed until February 14, 2019.

In New Mutants, 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. New Mutants is directed by Josh Boone and written by Boone and Knate Lee, and is positioned as more of a horror movie than a superhero movie, as evidenced by the film's initial trailer. That's disappointing in and of itself, though we're now learning that 20th Century Fox is bracing for extensive reshoots across both productions.

Since then there have been reports that a new character was being added. While this new release date still falls within the awards season window, it shows a lack of confidence in the movie's ability to compete during the holidays.

And now that Valentine's Day is taken, that pushes the medieval epic "The Kid Who Would Be King" back two weeks to March 1.
