Deadpool 2, X-Men Franchise & The New Mutants Get Their Release Dates

Apparently 20th Century Fox decided that this weekend should be Release Date Announcement-Palooza, as, in addition to confirming the Avatar sequel dates, set releases for a wealth of mutant movies and more, including Deadpool 2, The New Mutants and the next chapter of the main X-Men franchise, currently known as Dark Phoenix.

Deadpool 2 has, of course, been falling into place following the smash success of last year's original, and now boasts Josh Brolin aboard to play the character of Cable. It'll be with us on 1 June, 2018, a switch from the first film's February arrival, but A) Fox figures the Merc With A Mouth is ready to go up against the crowded summer competition and B) with shooting starting in the coming months, it couldn't conceivably be ready for next Feb.

The New Mutants, which has Josh Boone in the director's chair, is quickly coming together, with casting rumours flying for a while. The story of the first graduates from Charles Xavier's school is set to arrive on 13 April 2018. And finally on the X-Men front, Fox has actually acknowledged that the next movie will be Dark Phoenix, which will presumably feature Sophie Turner's Jean Grey seeing her power grow out of control. Little has been officially released about that one, though Simon Kinberg has been tipped to step into the director's seat.

In non-mutant news, Steven Spielberg/Tom Hanks/Meryl Streep Pentagon Papers film has landed an awards-schedule 22 December release this year, with Bohemian Rhapsody, staring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, is on for Christmas 2018.

Then there are movies on the move, with Kingsman: The Golden Circle shifting up a week and Murder On The Orient Express shifting two weeks earlier in November this year. Shane Black's The Predator is leaving February next year and headed to 3 August, replaced by Maze Runner: The Death Cure, which slots into its place for a 9 February arrival.

We'd note here that the news usually corresponds to US releases and that UK dates could be slightly different, but at least we now know what to expect, especially in regards to Fox's expanding plans for its Mutant universe.

Subject-Swiss Army Man
Name & mailing address

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
