MICKEY 17 is all set to hit the silver screens with a new release date. Warner Bros. revealed in a statement that the film, helmed by the acclaimed Oscar-winning director Bong Joon Ho of Parasite fame, is now slated to hit theaters on January 31, 2025.

Previously set for March 29, 2024, the movie was pulled from the schedule by Warner Bros. due to production disruptions stemming from industry strikes. This delay didn’t catch many by surprise, given the absence of a trailer as the original release date drew near, fueling speculation of a postponement.

Bong Joon Ho’s latest project marks his return since the groundbreaking success of Parasite, which not only shattered records as the highest-grossing Korean film but also made history by clinching the Oscar for Best Picture, marking the first non-English language film to achieve this feat. Apart from directing, Bong also takes on producing duties for the film under his company Offscreen, alongside producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner of Plan B, and Dooho Choi of Kate Street Pictures.

Adapted from Edward Ashton’s 2022 novel, described as a high-concept cerebral thriller akin to The Martian and Dark Matter by its publisher St. Martin’s Press, Mickey 17 stars Pattinson as an “expendable” worker on a human expedition dispatched to colonize an icy planet. The plot revolves around his refusal to yield his position to a replacement clone. While specific plot details remain guarded, the ensemble cast boasts names like Naomi Ackie, Steven Yeun, Toni Collette, and Mark Ruffalo.
