It’s been a long time coming, but finally we’re going to see The New Mutants this August, as 20th Century Studios has announced that the film will be released in theaters this year on August 28.
This announcement is a long-time coming and there’s plenty of energy and anticipation for the release of The New Mutants, which appears to be bringing out a horror edge to the Marvel Universe.
Directed by Josh Boone, The New Mutants stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin/Magik, Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane, Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie/Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot and Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar/Mirage.
To celebrate the new release date of August 28, 2020, 20th Century Studios have released a brand new poster confirming the new release date:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Five young mutants, who are held against their will in a secret laboratory discover they are being experimented upon and stage an escape. And in doing so have to overcome their past sins and worst fears.
While we’re now at Level 2 and cinemas can be re-opened, August is still far enough away that we may see larger releases being staggered out. I personally believe that until a vaccine is discovered social distancing is just going to be a part of life, so we may see these types of bigger blockbusters as a staggered releases. But the prospect of seeing The New Mutants finally arrive in cinemas is an announcement to be excited for.
The New Mutants will arrive in cinemas on August 28.
