Just watched the Collider vid...., the power’s that be at Disney SUCK ! re; their so-called ‘reasoning’ for not releasing this film.
Using ‘excuses’ , and not taking their current ‘financial’ situation - which they only have themselves to blame - on an acquisition they proceeded with having their greedy ‘eyes wide open’ in doing so....
Their damn Trojan horse is full of S**T !!!
Yet another example of ‘Powerful A-hole know it alls’ coming in, blaming others for their shortcomings, and protecting their own skins regardless of who they screw over ! Hating Disney right now.
More important, and better things to do.
Heh !, yeah firesprite, maybe ..., not sure how else one’s supposed to take pathetically manufactured info like this, from this corporate Giant !?
Going from totally surprised ( in a brilliantly great way ) upon hearing about this project 4+ yrs ago - been/being a huge fan of the characters, stories and comics since they were introduced, then with the delays for various reasons ( understandable with the film makers wanting to present the best version they could ), and now finding out how it won’t see the light of day due to some BS from higher-ups even though it’s probably ready for release, and not giving the general public a chance to make up their own mind about it !?...,
What !?..., every single film release with the Disney stamp on it has to make mega profits now - or it’s shelved indefinitely !?
So yeah, possibly taking this news more seriously ( and stupidly personal ) than it deserves ...., the reasons behind why - just pisses me off is all.
Could New Mutants have been fine? Eh, possibly... At this point, it sounds like they were getting to the point where there's just been too much tinkering with the thing and it would've been a mess. That said, maybe it'll get a release on dvd/streaming and we can judge for ourselves.
The bottom line, for me, is that I have more trust in the PTB at Marvel than I do in anything at Fox, so I'm inclined to believe that it probably was a bad movie that wasted the potential of a good property.
^That’s not the impression I got from watching the Collider segment.
Anyhoo, as far as Disney not wanting to ‘throw money away on a troubled production’ seems they did just that on Solo ? - a film which I didn’t mind by the way..., after seeing it. Not great, but not too bad for what it was.
Yeah, it’s a different ‘kettle of fish’ argument, but still !?
Not really knowing anything about the how/what/where etc..., of films being released , I do appreciate the responses shared here concerning the possible/probable ‘why’ of this New Mutants film being a no go in theatres....
I don’t subscribe to any streaming services - so here’s hoping against hope the film will eventually make it to the DVD/Blu-Ray medium.
This franchise deserves a much better opportunity - than it’s been given.
New trailer. Still not sure how I feel about it, but it seems more coherent than before, so that's a start...
What’s happened to this film ?, were the ‘reshoots’ done, was the final film completed ?, is it ever going to see the light of day !?.... so many other projects are finding their way to our screens... via whichever service, why’s this gone completely ‘silent’ ?....
It hasn't gone silent, it was finished and completed! It was released in cinemas in the US and others on August 28th. It's still out at my local cinema in the UK now.
So far the film has made a box office of 23 million.
So it was released in the U.K & U.S already ?.... why not here in Aus !?
Is the box office return the only factor holding back a more general release ? ...
