Deadpool fans won’t have to wait as long as expected to see the film’s sequel. According toThe Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox is shuffling the release dates for its slate of X-Men films, moving Deadpool 2 to May 18th, two weeks earlier than its original June 1strelease date

Deadpool 2 isn’t the only film on the move. The studio is also bumping its horror-tinged The New Mutants nearly a year. The film was originally scheduled to be released on April 13th 2018, but now it won’t be arriving in theaters until February 22nd, 2019. THR reports that the moves are partially to ensure that The New Mutants and Deadpool 2 don’t overlap theatrical runs in some overseas markets.

The studio’s long-delayed adaptation of Gambit is also getting pushed, moving from February 14th, 2019, to June 7th, 2019. That shift comes alongside the revelation that director Gore Verbinski has departed the project due to scheduling issues.

Smart. I'm not in too much of a rush to see New Mutants anyway to be honest, the trailer did not inspire interest at all.

Considering the New Mutants movie looks horrible, I doubt anyone will care.

Wait, their plan is to move their movie to 2 weeks after Avengers Infinity War opens and one week before the next Star Wars movie... that is a bad idea.

Not really, it means that all 3 will hurt each other's box offices, which means less money for all of them, which is not good for anyone.

So of all the dates available in 2018 Fox decided the best time to release Deadpool2 was two weeks after the most anticipated cbm of all time? ok then.

This is going to hurt Infinity War's legs and likewise it will be hurt by Infinity War and Han Solo. I'm bumping my predictions for Infinity War down. I'll go with $1.3-$1.5 billion as a close estimate and $1.2-$1.6 as a longer one. I could easily be wrong though.

Dang, this came out of nowhere. I don't remember the last time a major movie shifted a release date within months of it's originally scheduled date.

As for New Mutants, I don't really care. I'm not looking forward to it that much anyway. But for Deadpool 2, I am glad we're going to get it a little bit earlier, although I may not be seeing it in theaters since it's so soon after Infinity War.

@tj849:

I am sure they will all do well, pretty sure that IW will still pull 1.3B and Deadpool 2 should just barely clear 1B, but they both could have done better if the moved Deadpool to like later in June or really anywhere else.

It would have been better off staying at June first, at least then nothing cuts its legs off instead of Solo coming the next week.

Although I really don't see Solo doing very well so it might not matter.

All four films are or will be owned by Disney, and that's where the profits are going.

That's what I saw someone else say and I agree it seems that way but it doesn't make sense. Fox just sold themselves to Disney for a ridiculous amount of money because they wanted to focus on other stuff. Why try and mess with them now?

Deadpool 2 barely clear 1B? I highly doubt so, Deadpool (2016) seemed more of a fluke boosted by excellent and somewhat unique and novel marketing. It won't work a 2nd time.

Infinity War will most likely gross over 1 billion, but I have a feeling it might end up lower than Avengers Age of Ultron's 1.4 billion because the audience may be saving their wallets for the Infinity War sequel in 2019. Think in the sense of how the box office performed for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films part 1 and part 2.

@theamazingspidey:

I would assume that they simply had to move New Mutants because it is not going to make it in time, or simply because it sucks so bad they need more reshoots and had to fill the slot that Fox had reserved and Deadpool 2 was the closest thing they had.

It was a HORRIBLE idea.

It is a horrible idea. Why do you NEED to fill the slot?

Also, New Mutants sounds even MORE terrible than I initially thought it would be:

"Word on the street is that after NEW MUTANTS tested well but not great, the studio decided to actually embrace the film’s horror elements and beef up the scares in the wake of the success of IT and GET OUT last year."

Sounds like more jump scares to me.

The New Mutants is inspired by the classic story “The Demon Bear Saga” and is planned to be the first installment in an X-Men movies horror trilogy.

Wonder how they're gonna have time to make a whole trilogy before Marvel decides to scrap it.

I don’t see any good in this situation. Sure, fans will get to see Deadpool 2 two weeks earlier, but does it really matter? I would have rather waited a brisk 2 weeks rather than potentially risking potential box office revenue for both Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2. And while Solo might underperform, it’s still going to be a threat for Deadpool.

Huge mistake.

Fox's owners (Murdochs) sold the movie studio and some Tv assets to Disney, that deal didn't involve the say of the movie division executives, that are only employees and would probably lose their job, (or at least their executive/decisions role), now, after this move their are certainly losing their job when the acquisition by Disney is complete.

This move was basically the only shot that the mentioned executives had that could actually mess with Disney, yet it shows how much they actually care for the Deadpool 2 movie success, in the original movie all already was about Ryan Reynolds commitment and passion for the project...

Deathly Hallows pt2 did about $85M better than pt1 because it was released in the summer vrs November.

My thoughts on this train wreck of a decision- Dead Pool 2 is probably expected to be lousy (Getting rid of Tim Miller was a God awful decision) and moving it closer to the path of Infinity War gives them an excuse for why it does poorly, and it's a spite shot against Marvel.

New Mutants must also be expected to bomb, and they don't want to lose more money on it. Better to let Disney handle this disaster next year?

Whatever Inifinity War grosses, it would have done a hundred million better without Deadpool running up against it (1.6 instead of 1.7B ?) and Dead Pool will probably make around 550M instead of 650M.

If Deadpool 3 ever surfaces as a Fox movie, I would expect something along the lines of Lake Placid 3 in quality.

Almost nobody gives a damn about the New Mutants movie anyway. And Deadpool's high gross wasn't related to the movie's quality. It was due to people's fascination with the character, very well done marketing, Ryan Reynolds prior association with the character, footage leaks and stuff like that. The movie was sort of made on a dare. It clicked with the audience with all the violence and Deadpool's signature comedy. There's no guarantee that Deadpool 2 will replicate the success of Deadpool. Opening day collections will be good though. People like the character.

Infinity War's overall gross would be hurt if Deadpool 2 turns out to be a good film. It will sell like hot cakes in that case. And there's the Han Solo film. Not very hyped but it's a part of Star Wars franchise so it's gonna sell due to the rabid fandom.
