So that's at least 3 date pushes, although it was only delayed by a year and a half.

Meanwhile, New Mutants had these release dates::
  • April 13, 2018
  • February 22, 2019
  • August 2, 2019
  • April 3, 2020
  • August 28, 2020
That's 5 release date changes, delaying it about 2 1/2 years.

There have been films that have been delayed longer, but I'm not sure any had as many date changes.

Not as long as I remembered but by your calculation, but it still felt like a long time and it became a running joke in their issues.

"Before I Wake" had 4 release date changes, and the US release was delayed 2 years 8 months, just edging out New Mutants

Might as well get something out of it,
$100M at the box office is $50M for Fox. That is like 2.5M VOD purchases (well maybe closer to 3M because of the fees paid to VUDU, Apple, etc). I think that they might have gotten that with VOD.

PG-13. I thought the selling point was it had R-rated teeth. Did I miss the switch or am I misremembering?

Perhaps the pandemic is the reason why Disney still wants to bring the movie into theaters. They can test the waters with little risk, before getting out the big guns like Mulan. The New Mutants could be a hit since people are hungry for content, while in a Covid-free-scenario the movie's chance to be a bomb would have been much higher.

According to Director Josh Boone, the film was always going to be PG-13.

Definitely hoping I can check out that Comic-Con @Home Panel!

No announcement of a streaming release, so this thing is still scheduled to hit theaters at some point.

Kinda funny how they’re poking fun at the fact the release date has been pushed back so many times. I half expected an announcement that it was going to drop on Disney+ soon.

The Comic Con @ Home Panel was short but a lot of fun.

It was cool to hear that previous to COVID-19, Josh Boone & Bill Sienkiewic were planning to record an Audio Commentary for the Blu-Ray release.

this will get my money just because of the fact, Boone was wearing a Replacements "Tim" shirt during the panel discussion

I'm actually rather looking forward to checking this out based on the footage, and hopefully it might actually get on a few screens down here in New Zealand (our cinemas are open and we're starved for new stuff). It's possible it may be a trainwreck still but it really seems to capture the golden Sienkiewicz era of NM I grew up on and like the casting. Also it's been more than a year now since I saw a superhero movie in theatres and I'm feeling deprived.

Yeah screw those big city theatres. Disney is going to take all that middle American money.

I could have gone to theaters across the river in Ohio for the last month and a half, but nothing showing that I wanted to see. I really want to see this just to see it.

The Drive-In Theater Chain in my area is supposed to be screening this on release.

Hopefully will get a chance to attend.

Cool, this means we can watch it on digital in a couple of months. I waited this long already.

Since they’re already putting Mulan on Disney+, which is a bigger film I don’t see why Disney doesn’t do the same thing with this film. Unless they hold off on the announcement until like next month and release it in October since it has a bit of a horror vibe.

They can't go direct to Disney+ because it's a Fox property and the Cable/Streaming rights were already sold elsewhere.

Yeah the cable rights were pre-sold to HBO.

It won't air on HBO until probably early 2021.
