‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ Pushed Back to 2019, ‘The New Mutants’ Moves to Next Summer

Fans will have to wait a lot longer to see Fox’s next movies based on the X-Men franchise as the studio announced Monday that Simon Kinberg’s “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” would move from November 2, 2018 to February 14, 2019.

As a result, the horror-driven X-Men spinoff “The New Mutants” is also moving, from February 22, 2019 to August 2, 2019.

The studio also bumped “The Force,” James Mangold’s adaptation of a Don Winslow novel about a crooked NYC cop, from its release schedule altogether. It had been booked for March 1, 2019.

In addition, Fox announced that Bryan Singer’s eagerly awaited Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” would hit theaters in the midst of Oscar season, on November 2, instead of its previous Christmas Day release.

Joe Cornish’s medieval epic “The Kid Who Would Be King” moves back two weeks, from February 14, 2019 to March 1.

Fox also announced that Roxann Dawson’s faith-based drama “Breakthrough” starring “This Is Us” star Chrissy Metz will land on April 12, 2019 — one week before the animated feature “Spies in Disguise” that had previously been set for January 18, 2019.

Film Review: ‘Josie’

“Josie” is a movie that spends so much time trying to resemble a film noir that its refusal to engage in actual film noir business proves downright exasperating, a situation compounded by the eventual revelations it has in store.

‘X-Men’ Star Tye Sheridan Says ‘Dark Phoenix’ Will Be ‘More of a Drama Versus a Superhero Film’ (Exclusive Video)

Tye Sheridan, who stars as Scott Summers a.k.a. Cyclops in the the upcoming “X-Men” film “Dark Phoenix,” teased the movie as “more of a drama versus a superhero film.”

“Jean goes crazy in the movie,” Sheridan told TheWrap at SXSW while discussing his other new film, “Friday’s Child.” “Well, Cyclops doesn’t think she’s going crazy; Cyclops just thinks she’s gotta work some stuff out. It’s interesting, the drama in the movie. We treated this movie as much more of a drama versus a superhero film.”

In an Entertainment Weekly article from December, Jennifer Lawrence, who stars as Raven/Mystique, said she would definitely call “Dark Phoenix” a “drama.”

“We have really great action scenes and we go to space like within the first five minutes of the movie,” she explained. “So it’s definitely exciting but emotionally all these characters are taking the biggest, most extreme dives than they have in the whole series.”

Sophie Turner, who plays Jean Grey a.k.a. Phoenix, also promised in a recent interview with Empire that the film was being revolutionized and that they wanted to create a “whole new genre of superhero movie.”

Sheridan took on the role of Cyclops in 2016’s “X-Men: Apocalypse” and will reprise it in “Dark Phoenix.” The role of Cyclops was previously played by James Marsden in “X-Men,” “X-Men 2,” “X-Men: The Last Stand” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” In “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” Tim Pocock played Scott Summers.

“Dark Phoenix” will also star Jessica Chastain, Michael Fassbender, Olivia Munn, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters and Alexandra Shipp. Simon Kinberg, who also produced three “X-Men” films, directed.

Sheridan was at SXSW Film Festival to promote his film “Friday’s Child,” directed by A.J. Edwards. Both “Friday’s Child” and Sheridan’s upcoming film “Ready Player One,” are having their world premieres on Sunday in Austin.

“Dark Phoenix” hits theaters Nov. 2.

‘Game of Thrones’ Will Return to HBO in 2019

Get ready to go back to Westeros — well, in a while. “Game of Thrones” will premiere its six-episode, eighth and final season in 2019, HBO announced Thursday.

Up until now, we only had rumors that production on Season 8 may last until August 2018, which led fans to believe the show wouldn’t return until 2019. Star Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, casually mentioned in interviews that this was the case. Now we have the confirmation — and we’re really sorry about that year and a half long hiatus.

The seventh season of “Game of Thrones” — which consisted of seven extra-long episodes — aired in Summer 2017.

Creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will act as directors, with David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik. Benioff and Weiss will also write, along with Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.

Executive producers include Benioff, Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield. Co-executive producers are Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin.
