Gambit movie has a new release date

13 October 2017

Of all the characters in the X-Men canon, none has been so beloved for so long a time and so underserved since the '90s cartoon as Gambit, the Cajun charmer who can charge any inanimate object with energy and throw it, creating a small but powerful explosive.

The actor's long, long-gestating Gambit movie is finally, actually, really happening now, with Fox confirming a release date of February 14, 2019 for the X-Men spin-off movie.

After a few false starts, Gambit looks like it's happening after all, with Gore Verbinski directing Channing Tatum in the title role. Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner will also produce.

Gambit will be part of the X-Men Cinematic Universe and is expected to narrate the story of Remy LeBeau who lives in New Orleans, Louisiana as a key member of the venerable Thieves' Guild.

Although he did not appear in the first three X-Men films, Gambit appeared on screen in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where he was portrayed by actor Taylor Kitsch.

Alternatively, it could just be that they're attempting to ape the success of fellow X-Men breakout movie Deadpool, which released on the same date previous year to massive box office numbers.

Gambit has a February 14, 2019 release date, which is the same release date the Deadpool movie had past year and was a huge success.
