The New Mutants has a confirmed release date of January 4th 2021 on Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray and DVD, and I’m looking forward to it after all this time. It’ll certainly be something to spend your Xmas money on, especially as we’ll probably be heading for Lockdown 3 at that point, given the way things are going.
The extras on 4K, Blu-ray and digital are as follows:
- Origins & Influences – Legendary comics artist Bill Sienkiewicz and the filmmakers explore the origins and influences behind The New Mutants.
- Meet the New Mutants – Cast members share their experiences while filming and reveal how they bonded as a family, much like the characters in the film.
- Deleted Scenes
- Roberto Suns & Dani Climbs
- “She’s a Demon”
- “Everybody’s Type” & Chores
- Dani’s Nightmare – Alt
- “I Need to Cool Off”
- “We’re on Lockdown”
- Take out the Source
- Director Josh Boone Chats with Marvel Comics artist Bill Sienkiewicz
The New Mutants has another new trailer, and another new release date, but after being put back so often, will it still come out when cinemas aren’t yet in full swing and probably won’t be until Spring 2021?
Some people just want this to be released on Disney+, while another person on Twitter said that by the time it comes out, Maisie Williams‘ kids will be old enough to see it(!)

January 6th 2020:
The New Mutants now has a full trailer and, since it’s 2-3 years since it was first announced, everyone’s wondering what the point is, given that 20th Century Fox no longer have the rights after this movie, and so when Marvel fully take over, everthing ‘X-Men’ will be rebooted, so there’ll be a new Professor X, Wolverine and so on, so what’s the point of this?
Well, the 2015 Fantastic Four movie only came about because Fox were contractually bound to make three Fantastic Four movies in ten years; they’d made two, and no-one wanted a third, so they made a film so bad that no-one would want another. And there we were.
So, that’s what I think will happen with this.
Anyhoo, The New Mutants is released in the UK on April 3rd 2020… maybe.

October 17th 2017:
The New Mutants shows that while the main set of films have gone as far as they can with the best one, Logan, there’s always chance for another reboot. And since, as Logan centered around on Wolverine and new girl Laura, I’m wondering if this would take that point in the story and go forward, as the billing just states that five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.
Instead, this one stars Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) with Maisie Williams, Alice Braga , Charlie Heaton, Blu Hunt, Henry Zaga, Happy Anderson, Mickey Gilmore and Thomas Kee.
I thought this might be the next Jennifer Lawrence X-Men movie, but that’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, due out on November 2nd, 2018.
In the meantime, The New Mutants is due out on April 13th, 2018.
Director: Josh Boone
Writers: Josh Boone and Kante Gwaltney (based on the comic book by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod)
