Bourne 5 Takes Over Old “Apes 3” Slot

Less than a day after Fox announced plans to move its untitled third “Planet Of The Apes” film by a year, Universal Pictures has quickly moved in and staked a claim for the July 29th 2016 release date slot.

The film in question will be none other than the next film in the Jason Bourne franchise, the one in which star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass are re-teaming.

That film was slated for a July 15th 2016 release but has now gone back two weeks. It also opens up the distance between it and Paramount’s “Star Trek 3” which opens on July 8th.
