New Mutants

I would be super okay with that group. It's the most iconic line-up (Karma left early, Magma was always just there, I love Doug but he would be hard to translate [heh]). Anyone want to lay bets that they're already trying to get Andy Serkis for Warlock?

Mixed bag. Some of the horror looks good, but other aspects are a little too generic. But, as a first trailer, it has my interest.

Weird that Reyes is the villain, but I'm stoked on it. I mean, it's a little weird we have a movie trailer for a superhero movie featuring five notable superpowered characters from a major franchise (and at least one more lesser notable one) and the trailer doesn't show any of them explicitly using their powers.

So they pushed it back to 2019 and are re-shooting more than 50% of it. The cover story is that they want to change it to full horror due to the success of It. The word on the street is that the screenings were terrible. 

Spoiler

They have also added Antonio Banderas as a villain for the post credit scene. The Director wanted to bring in Jon Hamm as Mr. Sinister but the studio said no.

Ditto. That all said, an October release always seemed like the best option for the film. Hell, nothing is even scheduled for Halloween Weekend this year. If you're going to push a horror movie back, at least push it back to a time it'll make some bank.

Hollywood needs to learn how to cut their losses earlier instead of trying to fix a dead project. They aren't going to make their money back.

There are rumors floating around that Dark Phoenix is going to be one of the biggest cinematic disasters. It's a shame that a franchise that helped redefine the comic book movie is projected to go out so poorly.

I really think Fox is afraid to go cosmic with the Mutants, especially after how bad Fantastic Four has turned out. But you can’t do Dark Pheonix and keep it earthbound. It just doesn’t work.

Basically. Dark Phoenix is a story literally about a Cosmic Force possessing a young woman and eating stars that kill broccoli people. There's literally nothing grounded about it.

I think Fox doesn't want to put any more money into it since they are about to be bought by Disney and they just want to let them deal with it. I think Disney will be smart enough to just let it go, pun intended.
