While "Deadpool 2" sees an early release, horror-tinged "The New Mutants" has been pushed from April 13, 2018, to February 22, 2019. This is being done partially to ensure that the two films don’t overlap theatrical runs in some overseas markets.
The studio’s long-delayed adaptation of Gambit is also getting pushed, moving from February 14, 2019, to June 7, 2019.
This shift comes in the wake of a revelation that director Gore Verbinski has departed the project due to scheduling issues.
The new release date of "Deadpool 2" puts the film in theatres a week before Disney is slated to release "Solo: A Star Wars Story".
