This is not a drill!!! The New Mutants film will finally see the light of day, unless it doesn’t. According to Variety, Disney has added The New Mutants back to its release calendar with a “theatrical” debut on August 28, 2020.
The former Fox film was originally set for release in 2018, but has been beset by numerous delays. When Disney set the April release and started showing some amazing trailers and set photos, fans of the comic book team began to get excited that they would actually get to see Magik, Dani Moonstar, Cannonball, and Wolfsbane on the screen.
However, the nationwide shutdown of movie theaters in response to the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in Disney removing the film from the schedule. While the new date for release it at the end of August, we are still hoping that theaters will be open by then and there will not be any additional delays with this ill-fated film.
Here is the trailer for those that haven’t seen it or those that need to see it again!!!!
The first teaser for The Old Guard movie was dropped on the movie’s Twitter account. It is twelve seconds worth of grainy footage to get you excited.

We are super excited for this film. It is based on a comic by Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez that is published by Image Comics. This story of an immortal mercenary strike team is one of the best comic stories in recent years.
The film will be release on Netflix on July 10, 2020. It stars Charlize Theron, Kiki Lane, among Chiwetel Ejiofor among others. Rucka wrote the screenplay, and the movie is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood.
Set your calendars.

By now we’ve all seen the “Extended first look” leaked out for Disney’s latest rehashed classic churned-and-burned into a CGI monstrosity, Aladdin. And far be it from me to bury the lead:
It looked almost palatable until Will Smith’s Genie farted out of the lamp.
The movie has a lot going for it on paper. Director Guy Ritchie — notable to nerds first for his Tarantino-by-way-of-the-UK Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, and Snatch, and later for his turn on Downey-led Sherlock Holmes movies that weren’t half bad. The principle cast, Smith aside, is far less white than one might have feared in the day and age of actually casting things to be true to the source. Heck, even the teeny-tiny-tid-bits of scenery we’ve seen has been lavishly lit and detailed to-the-nines. And while I personally had not seen the The Jungle Book or Beauty and the Beast remakes… my wife and oldest kid have, and they said they were good. Maybe not “great” how my generation once recalled the original animated features mind you, but I’d wholly accept “good” for Aladdin, in part merely to match it’s CGI-siblings in the Hall of Unjustifiable Cash Grabs.
But then… hoo boy. The Genie.
Cooler heads in my social media feeds gently cooed to give it a chance, and denote we’ve not really even seen how things will look. The only taste of Big Willie was a mere 5 seconds of awkward half-introduction. And certainly we can’t extrapolate the quality of the final film from such a hot-take.
We are hoping those of you who are at Comic-Con International: San Diego are having a great time. Say “Hi!” to our publisher if you see her in the aisles.
We are going to collect the trailers that are debuted at the Con here. There will certainly be some interesting entertainment coming down the pike for everyone out there in multiple areas of fandom.
Keep checking this post throughout the weekend. We will update as we get access to more trailer content:
