Fox is moving a slew of movies including Alita: Battle Angel and Gambit

Fox has just announced a number of changes to their release dates, according to Deadline. The shifting around is going to affect a number of genre films including Alita: Battle Angel. The James Cameron/Robert Rodriguez film was supposed to hit theaters on December 21. The film, which stars Jennifer Connelly and Lana Condor will now hit theaters on February 14, 2019. On December 21, Alita: Battle Angel will be replaced by “untitled Deadpool movie,” which is reportedly a PG-13 re-release of Deadpool 2. The re-release will put it up against AquamanBumblebee, Holmes and Watson and Welcome to Marwen.

The X-Men film Dark Phoenix which just released a new trailer is now opening on June 7. It was originally scheduled for February 14. The trailer got an insane amount of views very quickly and summer is a much better slot. It’s going to be competing against The Secret Life of Pets 2, and Flarsky. Of course, there is the much beleaguered film Gambit to consider here. It was scheduled for June 7, 2019, but it’s now moving to March 13, 2020. The film still doesn’t have a director. Though it will be interesting to see Channing Tatum’s take on the character, it’s still up in the air. The script is being written by Reid Carolin and Joshua Zetumer.

What do you guys think of the change in release dates for Alita: Battle AngelGambit and Dark Phoenix? Do you think Gambit is actually going to happen? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @Legion of Leia.
