New Mutants

This actually looks like it might be kinda interesting. It also looks like a lot of focus will be placed on Anya Taylor-Joy's Magik.

Hopefully Charlie Heaton will bring a little more to Cannonball than what we're shown here, 'cause I do love me some Sam Guthrie.

Alice Braga is playing Cecilia Reyes, but I'm thinking (and hoping) she's Miss Sinister in disguise.

It looks pretty heavily implied that she's Miss Sinister. Is that why the delay I wonder? Same character in Dark Phoenix? They trying to wait for the stink to waft away?

Like I said for the last trailer a bajillion years ago: I'm in. Looks great!

Based solely on the focus that's being put on Magik, I'm wondering if the reshoots were to make the movie more about her.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this. It looks interesting, but. I don't know, my gut's telling me to be worried about this. At the same time, tho, I want to go and see this thing.

This is the director's cut. The reshoots apparently introduced a new character and they aren't using them.

Especially since some of the studios are already sending recent/same-day releases to streaming. Mulan, I can see why Disney is holding off on that one. New Mutants and Antlers, films it inherited from the merger, those are kinda odd. Let's see where we are in a couple of weeks.

Guess what?

AGAIN!

Disney has rejigged their entire schedule due to COVID-19, and New Mutants has been completely pulled from the calendar. As someone pointed out on Twitter, it's doubtful it will ever make it to Disney+ because there are no R-rated movies on the service. So that means we're looking at 2021, a Hulu drop, a re-edited version to get to PG-13 for Disney+, or nothing.

A reason I saw online: HBO had an existing agreement with 20th Century Fox. Because the film was produced under Fox, HBO gets initial streaming rights. With HBO Max launching soon, Disney would basically be giving them something to lead with by sending it straight to Digital. It's a cynical reason but a reason.
