Twitter. The New Mutants Co-Creator Urges Fans to "Calm Down" After His Comments Spark... Days after Bob McLeod posted a lengthy message on his social media platforms slamming The New Mutants, the long-time Marvel creator is telling fans it's to calm down about his comments.
Saturday morning, McLeod shared a series of tweets clarifying his original messaging, identifying his biggest issue with the project was the fact the studio spelled his name wrong in the credits. I'm a bit overwhelmed by the explosive news coverage my comments yesterday about the New Mutants movie received. For the record, I did not say it was a bad film. I haven't even seen it, and I think it looks like great fun, actually. — Bob McLeod (@mcleodbob) August 29, 2020 "I was merely expressing my disappointment that the characters didn't have the signature attributes I gave them when I created their images," the artist added.
New Mutants Has Biggest Opening Day At Box Office Since Pandemic Shutdown. While theaters aren't open everywhere just yet, some areas of the country do have a new movie to watch on the big screen courtesy of Marvel's New Mutants.
Theaters have been shut down in the states since mid-March, and since this is the first new film to really screen at multiple theaters, the release of New Mutants has created the biggest opening day at the box office since the pandemic began. New Mutants brought in $3.1 million on Friday, and that was without theaters in New York or Los Angeles, as those locations are not yet open. As of this morning expectations for the film after its first weekend are sitting between $7 and $8 million, though it's unclear what Disney will do with it after opening weekend.

Sadly, due to no fault on behalf of new distributor Disney, the film has been pulled from its planned release in response to health concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19/coronavirus, making fans think that the movie is doomed to never see the light of day. Given how long the film has been in limbo, it's easy to forget how long the film has faced setbacks, so let's take a trip down memory lane to remember all of its release dates.

NEW TV SPOT: FACE YOUR DEMONS. 20th Century Studios released a new trailer for the upcoming New Mutants movie, which we assure you is still coming out on April 3rd.

Though we have to say, whether it's a hospital, the mysterious Xavier Institute, or something else, on the bright side, it's a pretty good time to be separated from most of the outside world and placed under observation, what with the deadly coronavirus going around.

Adding to that same listing, the flick has also earned a PG-13 rating though it has yet to receive an official rating from the Classification and Rating Administration.
