Channing Tatum's Gambit movie officially dealt release date and director Gore Verbinski

Channing Tatum's X-Men spin-off Gambit lands director, release date

That, of course, relates to a chess move - aptly, the gambit - but more importantly it signals the movie is moving ahead at a good pace.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Fox film will drop February 14, 2019, hoping that the Valentine's Day holiday will be as kind to Gambit as it was to the overnight blockbuster Deadpool in 2016.

Gore Verbinski is directing the film, which will see Tatum star as the New Orleans-based mutant with the power to manipulate kinetic energy and whose weapons include a staff and a deck of playing cards.

Gambit starring Channing Tatum has had a troubled history, but the standalone X-Men movie appears to be back on track. The character of Gambit was created in 1990 by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee and grew to prominence due to the 1992 cartoon series, where his fraught romance with Rogue was a major plot point. Gambit had been able to nab a director and a release date before with Rupert Wyatt as its helmsmen and a 2016 premiere, but production fell through because of creative issues. The character's only big screen appearance to date (outside his name being featured as an Easter egg in X2) was in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, played by Taylor Kitsch.

The film joins fellow X-Men films X-Men: The New Mutants (April 13th, 2018), Deadpool 2 (June 1st, 2018) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (November 2nd, 2018) as films from the franchise with release dates.
