Mickey 17 Film Delayed: Warner Bros. Removes Highly Anticipated Movie from 2024 Release Schedule

Los Angeles, California – Warner Bros. made an official announcement on Monday, revealing that filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s highly anticipated film “Mickey 17” is facing a delay. This news comes after several reports speculated that the film would be pushed back to the fall of 2024. However, the studio has removed the movie entirely from its release schedule for that year, leaving fans uncertain about its eventual release date.

Originally, “Mickey 17” was set to hit theaters on March 29, but now it remains uncertain when audiences will be able to watch the film. The limited marketing campaign for the movie only consisted of a brief teaser trailer that was released over a year ago.

Based on the critically acclaimed novel “Mickey 7” by Edward Ashton, the film has garnered a lot of anticipation from both fans and critics alike. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, the release has been postponed.

To compensate for the absence of “Mickey 17” in March, Warner Bros. has decided to move up the release of another film, “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire,” which is the next installment in the MonsterVerse film franchise.

At the recent Golden Globes award ceremony, actor Steven Yeun briefly expressed his excitement about “Mickey 17.” Although he couldn’t share any specific details about the film, he praised director Bong Joon-ho as an incredible artist and expressed his eagerness for the world to see the movie.

Production for “Mickey 17” began in August 2022 and concluded in December of the same year. The film stars Robert Pattinson as Mickey, a disposable employee on a hazardous mission to conquer the ice world Niflheim. The story takes an unexpected turn when a fresh clone is revived while his predecessor is still alive.

In addition to Pattinson and Yeun, the film features Naomi Ackie, Toni Collette, and Mark Ruffalo in prominent roles. With such a talented ensemble cast, fans are eagerly awaiting the release of “Mickey 17” to see their favorite actors in action.

Despite the anticipation, fans will have to wait for further updates regarding the release of “Mickey 17.” The film’s delay has left many wondering about its eventual release date. Warner Bros. has not provided any additional information about when audiences can expect to see the highly anticipated movie on the big screen.
