The “Baywatch” film has been pushed back a week and will now open on Memorial Day weekend on May 26th. The film was to open May 19th but has opted for the only slightly less quiet following weekend.
While “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” has the first half of the month to itself, the end of May is looking quite crowded at the moment. On the 19th alone there’s “Alien Covenant,” “Annabelle 2,” “The Nut Job 2” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul”.
On the 26th meanwhile “Baywatch” will now face off with the Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal-led space film “Life” and Disney juggernaut sequel “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”.
